Big enough to hold a 5-pound chicken, two Cornish hens, four kebabs, or four beef or fish steaks, this "baby" version of the George Foreman rotisserie brings the advantages of rotational cooking into the home, yet measures just 17 inches wide, 11-1/2 inches high, and 12 inches deep. The spit is just one of three cooking methods provided by the rotisserie. There's a flat basket measuring 6-1/2 inches square and 2-1/2 inches deep that hold foods like fish, steaks, and vegetables flat for grilling as they rotate, and four 8-inch skewers that fit into the rotisserie for kebabs and pork ribs. Other features include a lift-up cover with a window, a three-hour timer, and a pull-out drip tray. The rotisserie has a metal and plastic exterior and a metal interior for easy cleaning, and it secures firmly to a countertop with suction-cup feet. It carries a one-year warranty against defects and comes with a cooking-time chart and recipes. --Fred Brack

Easy to clean.

I've cooked at least a hundred chickens and more than a few pork roasts and it has worked perfectly every time.
R. Webb
I've done chickens up to 5 lbs with no problem, but it IS a cozy fit, so tie them up well.

This is a nice compact rotisserie, carrying that Foreman name and cachet, meaning good low-fat grilling or roasting. A rotisserie has an advantage over ovens and contact grills in that it uses radiant heat to evenly roast your food. The results are juicy and tender, with that wonderful crust that only air and radiant heat can produce. But is the Baby George all it's advertised to be?
Yes and no is the ambivalent answer. The Baby George is advertised to hold a five-pound roast or bird, and this is really NOT true, in my experience. Unless your five pound roast is very compact and not terribly WIDE, it will strike the front of the oven cover as it turns on the spit. That prevents the motor from turning the roast, and since the heating element (a simple exposed coil in back) is only on the back side, your roast can't cook properly.

For under five pound roasts, the rotisserie works well. To roast a pork roast or chicken, you use the spit. The spit is in two parts: a spike and plate on which you place the meat, and a top plate with a wing nut to hold the plate onto the spike. This unit is then placed into the roaster and it meshes with the cogs of the motor on the side. The lid is closed and you turn on the timer. There is no choice of temperature: the glowing element heats to about 325 degrees F and the meat rolls past it, roasting a 4 pound boneless pork roast in about 75 minutes.

There is a basket for roasting flat or odd shaped foods, and this unit is surprisingly useful. You can do fish like salmon, but I use it for chicken parts (leg and thigh) or for small boneless roasts that are too small for the spit. You open the metal basket, place the food inside, and close the basket top through the basket wires--rather like closing the door on a bird cage(!

I have been watching the infomercial on the Showtime Rotisserie for months and almost bought one.
I have recently read many complaints and problems with the Showtime Rotisserie on the Internet such as some fires in the unit , improper cooking of the food and many mechanical breakdowns and cleaning difficulties, and decided against it. Then I found the George Foreman Model and since I already own a George Foreman Grilling Maching that I constantly use and that has been trouble free after years of constant use, I decided to buy the George Foreman Rotisserie. Since I am single and have a small kitchen, this Baby model is the perfect size. I was worried about the heat, on my small counter due to many comments about the Showtime Rotisserie requiring a big area due to the excessive heat it develops. I cooked a 4 pound chicken in the Baby Rotisserie and had no problem with excessive heat. It is very well designed and vents out the top. The chicken was fantastic and the unit was very easy to clean. I put some water in the bottom pan on the recommendation of a friend that owns one, and it made it very easy to clean. The top cover comes right off for wiping the class front from the inside and the back shield slips right out also. The only problem I had was finding some "cooking" twine to tie the chicken up. I used unwaxed dental floss, but will go twine shopping today.
Very well designed product, well made, and for [X] , it is half the price of the Showtime with the shipping ..
Way to go, George and Salton.

I definitely have not used the oven since I got the rotisserie, food with a lot of fat or skin comes out amazingly delicious. Dont bother with fat free foods, you'll just dry them out and waste money. Dont do pork chops either. The unit comes apart easily for cleaning, but its a pain to scrub the wire basket - take out stock in Brillo pads! Also, the metal back wall that slides out gets stains like watermarks even when it is clean, it never will look shiny new again no matter how clean. The white on the unit is yellowing from the heat, and my turn knob broke off from the heat as well - I had the unit about 2 inches from my toaster oven on the right side and it contained too much heat outside the unit. It is also difficult to clean the upper insides of the unit, since you cannot remove it. Did I mention it makes a mean chicken wings dinner (just dont put them on top of eachother in the basket). Also, dont cook meat as long as the time recommended in the booklet, the small size of the unit cooks it much faster and everything comes out well done if you dont keep checking.

I think that all owners of this rotisserie agree that the back plate is probably the major con about this machine. However, the pros justify purchasing this incredible product. When we first used our rotisserie, we were absolutely amazed at how wonderful it made our food taste. We cooked a fryer that was exactly 5 lbs and although we had some trouble situating it on the prongs, we were finally able to get all of it on with a perfect fit (after all that trouble, we now hold the chicken together with cooking strings). In addition to chicken, I have cooked salmon using a recipe that was provided in the cooking manual that comes with this product. The cooking manual is very helpful because it give you the approximate times that you should cook suggested foods. We chose this product over the Ronco because of its unbelievable value. The similar sized Ronco costs ...more than the George Forman Rotisserie.... Although the Ronco does enable you to stand your food in an upright position and steam vegetables (in small quantities) ontop of your unit, the George Forman unit provides you with the same deliciously tasting food, is equally durable, and economically priced.
