Product Description

Product Description

Cook like a Gourmet with the Ronco ST5000PLGEN Showtime Rotisserie Platinum Edition. Make perfectly roasted chickens, turkey, pork or rib roasts, and burgers that are delicious and healthy too.


Chefs know that the secret to great roast chicken is the rotisserie, which sears the outside and tenderizes the meat inside for a succulent and simple meal. And now, home cooks have the power of the rotisserie in an appliance that sits on the countertop. The wonderful video instructions demonstrate how to truss a chicken, place it on the spit rods, and connect the spit wheel. Set the timer for 15 minutes per pound of chicken and then watch it roast through the glass door. The heat isn't adjustable, but three settings--normal rotation, pause and sear, and no heat rotation--are designed to cook meats to juicy perfection. All the accessories for preparing meats, fish, and vegetables, plus many extras and recipe ideas are included. The drip tray, heat reflector, and wheels remove for cleaning. --Lynne Sampson

My family has used my mom's wedding rotisserie for years, but after fifty years it finally died. We were in a panic, what shall we do, after all it lasted fifty years, made of shiny steel. We searched all the rotisseries out there, read the comments on the different products, even looked at eBay, noticed comments about the white plastic discoloring eventually from the heat. Then in our shopping we saw the Showtime Platinum with its fine unpainted steel exterior and solid construction. Everyone was selling the thing for $160 plus sales tax, so buying from amazon with free shipping was a no-brainer, especially since the day we placed our order the amazon webpage had a surprise $29 savings certificate. Well, I must say that in just one week we have done one to two chickens a day for our family of six, a marinated pork roast, salmon in the basket, and everything comes out absolutely perfect and delicious. Some think Ronco means cheap construction, but this thing is well and thoughtfully put together, and the video is really quite informative. Even the elastic chicken ties are a great idea, I now must go go a sewing store and buy more of this elastic thread and make my own. There is a reflector that goes down inside the back behind the heating coils that comes out for the dishwasher, and everything removable works in the dishwasher too, with very little cleanup inside and out with a sponge. Great food, easy care, great instructions, thoughtful and quality design, this thing is great. I would (and have) strongly recommend this specific unit to those I know and those reading this review.

Thanksgiving Turkey... WOW.... my family was so impressed with the turkey we cooked in our new Ronco Showtime Rotisserie. I bought a 12 pound turkey and it fit perfectly onto this rotisserie. However, I personally would not go bigger on this. After washing the turkey, I dried it and rubbed it with salt/pepper/lawrys poultry seasoning before putting it into the Ronco. I let the turkey cook for 4 hours as stated in the guide. The results: the most amazing, tender, fall of the bone, delicious, crispy skin turkey my family and I have ever had. I will never go back to bags, roasting pans, and eating Thanksgiving out again.

I have also cooked 4 chickens on this and they all came out excellent, but the turkey was really over the top in flavor!

I tried to do hamburgers but the meat started falling apart and out of the baskets so I just took them out and pan fried them. So far, that has been the most disapointing part of the Ronco.

I can't wait to try the skewers!

Clean up hint: Line the drip pan with foil including the grate, and also line the shiny reflective insert with foil. Spray the inside down lightly with any spray oil and also spray the part the skewers the chicken. Clean up will be almost non-existent. It will smoke for about the first 5 minutes due to the oil hitting the heating element, but just place it next to the stove or on top of the stove and turn the vent fan on until the smoking stops.

When I purchased this Ronco Showtime Rotisserie Platinum Edition I applied the $25 discount plus the free Super Saver Shipping that was offered which made it quite a steal at about 50% less then the Ronco site.

I read a review of the product in Slate of all places, where they bought all the late nite products and tried them out. They said all the other products (veggie slicer, haircut thingy, etc) were crap but that this rotisserie was awesome. I knew then that I had to have one.

Man, it makes amazing roast chicken! Crispy skin -- all the way around, not just (maybe) on the top as when you do it in the oven. And delicious, tender meat... just the best. I make one a week and use the leftovers throughout the week, chopped in a salad, sliced on sandwiches, or cold with mustard, etc. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Love gadgets and tools, however as most of us after seeing the infomerical, experience has taught me to question "how oft would I use?, how much space would it take up?, I even question power consumption (my convection oven trips the breaker if shared) and last does it really work? I don't fall for the perfectly manicured ladies enthusiasm.

A friend of mine made some venison on his that was outstanding, and after seeing the size of the thing, was I really convinced? Not yet. He did some rotisserie chicken, again fabulous, but still it's large AND it's a PITA to clean- which was my contribution to the tasty treats.

Housesitting one weekend, I decided to play. I did some chicken that came out so well, I was roasting everything, I could think of, all with great results. I noted how much, on a very lean london broil, fat was dripping off. Still couldn't justify getting my own.

I learned: it's definitely a plan ahead type of endeavor, not if it just occured to you at 1600 and the family needs dinner by 1800.

It's very sturdy and considerably heavy, a concern to get it pulled out and ready to go, but also not flimsy. It is a huge footprint on my small counter top and even more when it's operating because....

When in use, the WHOLE oven is EXTREMELY hot to the touch and is supposed to be clear of any cabinets. The power cord is very short so this requires some strategy. I can run other appliances and not trip the breaker.

Cleanup is a bain because the "non-stick" sticks, AND rubs off with a sponge scoure pad. Tip use non-stick before the food goes on the rods.

It is noisy, has a tendency to squeak and you can hear the food adjust as it rotates with a recurring clunk.
