I don't have one, but I heard you can "set it, and forget it".

I wonder if you get any coin, for sitting in the audience of those info-mmercials?

I'm going to make a rotisserie chicken first. I think I'll inject it with some cajun seasoning too.

It works nicely. It's just a rotessirie. Outdoor rotesserie is probably best .

Chickens good . Made a rib roast also.

My mom sent me the Foreman rotisserie a few months ago. We used it once and packed it up. Not worth the effort.

Recipes?

Don't they all pretty much consist of "Shove the stick-thing through the dead animal part, mount the stick-thing inside the big plastic box-thing, set it and forget it."?

Those are too complicated. I never can remember how long to forget it. What.. ...a week....a month?

I have one - love it when I use it, but not all that often. I will say that it is easy to use and easy to clean.

I've made chicken, pork roast, pork loin, buffalo ribs, prime rib. I can't think of anything else.

If you make it a point to use it, it would be worth it.

The chicken Rocks. Get Emeril chicken cajun rub. Awesone.

It's a wonderful product! If you read the directions and use it correctly you'll fund it produces the best poultry and pork you've ever had. It makes fantastic baked potatoes too.

I don't have the actual steaming partition but I do have the dual heating tray and it works well. We like to put some red potatoes in the rotisserie for 30-45 minutes and then put them in the heating tray with some butter and seasoning while the meat then cooks. We also cook turkeys every Christmas and Thanksgiving on the Ronco. Almost every family member now has one because we got tired of having to drag ours out to all the get-togethers. Be sure to get the showtime kitchens seasonings too. BTW, there are recipes on the Ronco website.

What was wrong with it Russ?

If there was an issue with performance I can get someone in Customer Service to send you a new one if you let me know where she bought it...

We have sold a large number of them and had a few complaints, but most were product issues.

If anyone has issues with a Foreman product, let me know.

Pretty much.....what most people don't realize is that most all of the small appliances you use in your home are made overseas and imported. The technology is pretty much the same.

I got the Showtime last year. Used it the first day I got it and it worked great. You sometimes wonder if it really is that easy to jam the turkey on those spikes or if it really is that easy getting the bird in and out of the rotisserie, but it was surprisingly easy to use and the results were great.

But, like others said, it is a bigger hassle to use than just shoving something into the oven, which explains why we never used it again.

My wife just got it for me for Christmas. It is the platinum series. It's the middle sized one. Also, it has the digital contols rather than the turn knob. I'm going to give it a shot sometime this week.

Markdog - Nothing wrong with it. In fact, the chicken and kabobs came out fine. It is just easier to do on my big grill.

Ronco Rotisserie rules. I got one a couple years back and have probably used it close to a 150 times since. 5 minute setup and 5 minute cleanup works for me. Cooks way better than the oven. I use it primarily for roasting chickens and hind pork shanks but occasionally use it for roasting leg of lamb or prime rib and a few other things. Tonight I have an 8 pound organic chicken going on that bad boy and will be using the steamer accessory for some organic soycatash.

It's been looping in my head since I opened this thread.

I remember one time catching a Ron Popeil infomercial where at the start they said something like, "He's so famous, even Weird Al Yankovic has written a song about him!" And, they proceeded to play a snippet of the song.

Apparently, they were too thick to realize the song was making fun of him.

There's NO WAY that an electric rotisserie produces better pork than my Horizon smoker...

NO WAY.

Imagine that you spend years and years building a house, only to discover that most other people living nearby find your house to be delicious and keep tearing rooms off to eat. Then imagine that your only means of defending this house is a gun that shoots you whenever you shoot someone else. Congratulations, you've taken your first step towards understanding the endless hell of existence that bees endure.

I just want to know if the Bees realized it was Christmas on December the 25th??
