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.

Amazon.com

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.

I think it's the best way to make turkey, chicken, & burgers. We use it all the time to make burgers. Just twenty minutes of rotating. Rotisserie in their juices & the fat drips off. Moist & delicious. You place them in one of the rotating trays & you're the hamburger King/Queen! Plus, this unit is very frugal. Way less energy is used compared to an oven or stove top! It's a must have!
(P.S.)I cut the wings off the turkeys right up to the shoulder/body, only tie up the legs, then rotisserie it. The wings tend to overcook even in an oven. You can get more meat off of them if you boil them in water along with the neck til the meat starts to fall off the bones. You'll be surprised at how much meat's there. It's tender-n-yummy to mix up w/mayo & put on bread. meat...meat...meat! :)*

This is a decent machine, but it is not without it's faults. If you're thinking of buying one let me give you a few words of advice.

1. Any kind of poultry you cook in this machine will turn out excellent. For me that was reason enough to buy it because I always overcook my poultry in the oven. When it comes to beef and pork, i can't recomend using this machine. It gives the food a funny taste, and you're better off cooking beef and pork on the barbecue.

2. The commercial claims that it is easy to clean. Maybe so, but I don't own a dishwasher and it is a pain to clean. There are several parts that require furious scrubbing, taking some time and effort to clean. For those of you with a dishwasher it may be easier, but you would still have to scrub off the grease remenants before loading it in the washer.

Overall I do enjoy this machine because it allows me to cook a quality whole bird. If you have mastered cooking poultry, this machine will be a waste of money.
