How many of you took my advice and purchased a Ronco Rotisserie?

    I know you didn't.

    I'm sitting here enjoying some of the juiciest chicken on this Earth.

    Get one, you won't regret it.

    Had one a couple of years ago. The thing is a huge source of heat. Cannot use it on a kitchen counter, too hot for the cabinets above. I got mine from QVC and returned it within the authorized time for refund.

    I have owned mine since 1998. I love how juicy the chicken comes out as well as how crispy and golden the skin is. The flavor is better than any other chicken I've ever had. I store it above my cabinets when not in use and make sure I pull it out from under the cabinets when I'm using it so the cabinets don't get to overheated. I haven't had any problems with it yet and don't expect I will.

    I've eaten food from them & found it good & juicy.

    Since I picked up a grill that cooks with wood pellets my interest in picking one up went away (3 yrs now).

    I don't have the Ronco but I do have a convection oven with built in rotisserie. I am still learning how to use it but so far some pretty great chicken and beef have come out of it. Somehow rotisserie makes everything better.

    My parents wore theirs out. They just got a new one last week from the PX on sale. Chicken and pork are awesome cooked in it.

    I have a new one that I bought in a yard sale last year. Never used it, but after this thread, I might have to fire it up this week.

    Yea, look up the instructions on the web site. One thing to be careful of, their cooking times for chicken are way off. They recommend 15min/Lb. I've found that no more than 13min/lb much more accurate. Enough to give you juicy, tender, chicken.

    The only condiment I use is some seasoned salt.

    Use a meat thermometer. Once the parts reach 165-170, it's done!!

    I have 2, a large and the small size. They are awesome. Aside from chicken it also makes the best:
    Turkey up to about 12-14 lbs. As good as fried and muck less hassle.
    Pork roasts.
    Shish-kabobs- I love the way it rotates them a 1/4 turn each rotation.
    Roasted/grilled veggies.
    And, hands down the best leg of lamb anywhere. Salt, garlic, fresh rosemary.
    It also makes freakin incredible roast duck. Put new or fingerling potatoes in the bottom and rotate them periodically. They roast while being basted in the duck fat.

    My inlaws gave the us one about ten years ago. Use the heck out of the thing. Cornish hens are our favorite. We also love to use the vegetable steamer on the top.

    ETA: I also like to take the larger basket and pack it full of chicken wings and baste them with louisiana hot sauce.

    My daughter gave me a toaster oven with a rotisserie for Christmas a few years ago. The chicken that comes out of it is so tender that the drumstick comes off clean if I'm not careful when I'm carving it.

    I like the functionality of being able to bake, roast, toast, and can cook a small pizza, too.
