Ronco "Showtime" 5500Family Size Rotisserie &BBQ w/ Accessories
We use this rotisserie often. I like all the extras it came with
everyone needs one of these
this product exceeds the sales pinch given... I have used this twice now and love the results of my chicken & standing rib roast.
Will be using this bad boy instead of ever cooking in the oven again!! Boston Butt was just breathtaking it was so good! Cooks to perfection!! So easy to clean up after...just everything about it is great. And I especially like the peice you place behind the heating element, its easily removed and so easy to clean and keeps the inside back clean and protected. Placed frozen fresh Aparagus in the veggi warmer about 1 hour before roast would be done and it was perfect!!!!!
my best buy from QVC EVER!!
I waited more than a year to buy this rotisserie, sorry I waited so long. I love, love ,love this machine. MY chickens are great but I make a lot more. I put italian sausage in the basket, beef ribs, chicken parts, hambergers you name it, , as long as you pack it tight in the basket ,I cook a lot of things in my rotiss, I use it more than my oven & bbq. this Item will not sit idely on your counter, you will use it all the time. can't say enough good about it except, LOVE,LOVE,LOVE!!
Best rotisserie ever!
This is the second Showtime Rotisserie we purchased in over 10 years. It is a workhorse. We use it at least once a week and can't say enough good things about it. It is our first choice for making chicken, but we use it for beef, pork and seafood too. We love it so much, we bought it as gifts for our married children to encourage healthier eating!
Buy one you will love it!
I have read several of the reviews on this product before I made my purchase.
One of the complaints some people were having was it smoked.
Well, it is a Rotisserie… Right? :-) I just place my Rotisserie in the counter under my vent and presto, NO SMOKE.
It’s a great machine and I have absolutely no complaints.
I say buy one you will love it!
Expect to order more parts!
Although this is a wonderful machine I was disappointed that the giant lobster tray and the wheel for ribs was not included with this unit. I ordered both extra parts for an extra $50 from Ronco and a patio stand and extension cord later on for patio cooking for yet another $140. I am losing weight with all the beautiful fat free meals and loving the food, all in all it was very worth the INVESTMENT. I had no idea how much better food could be with a new type of cooking unit.
I got mine (in silver) back in February and have used it countless times since receiving it. As I'm a rotisserie chicken freak, that's predominantly what I use mine for, but I have used it for pork roast and just chicken breasts made in the basket a few times. It's true what others are saying....it makes the meat taste ooh-la-la wonderful. One suggestion though....when making a whole chicken, be sure to tie the legs and wings up good...and they supply you plenty of string to do that. Clean up is easy...not at all a 'chore' like you'd think from just looking at it. I've owned one of those $79.00 cheapies I got at that big national retailer....this is NO comparison!! Like that vendor always says that sells the electric smoker...."Dagum that's good!!"....that's what I say about my food made in this machine!!!
Would Give 10 Stars!
Hubby saw this on ITKWD last January and told me to order it. I got the stainless steel which i see is not available now. I want this review to be short and sweet. It is easy to use, easy to clean and more importantly, the food is tasty! I have made chicken, pork chops, turkey and roasts. All were juicy and delicious! I figured it would heat up my kitchen but surprisingly it did not so that is another plus. I have had this long enough to give a solid review on it. It does what it is supposed to. If you are on the fence then don't be. If you like good roasted food then this is worth getting.
Not another Kitchen Gadget
This is not another kitchen gadget that will be used a couple of times then put to the side.I use this at least once a week.I'm trying to eat lighter and eating more chicken, turkey , fish. The basket works great for turkey thighs, cod fillets.Whole chickens come out fantastic.Just Tie up the chickens really well ,you'll get good at it after just a few.I think the biggest advice I can give besides tieing up the chicken is to brine the bird overnight in a 6 or 8qt stock pot in the fridge.Just a simplie brine of salt water makes all the difference.I have seen these for years on the infomecials and thought just another gimik ,,, wrong,,, get one you'll love it.
Another great purchase from QVC
I love love love my new Ronco. I was worried about drying out my roasts but everything I have cooked in it is moist and delicious! Love those easy pays.
I had watched the rotisserie demo for years and always wanted one but figured it couldn't be as easy and nice as it seemed...but I was wrong! It is awesome! I've done chicken, pork and ham and it was super easy and delicious. Cleanup is easy too as you can put the bits in the dishwasher.
