Ron Popeil's Rotisserie

Soooooo, who has one and do you love it?

DH and I have sat through his infomercial a time or two and are getting pretty tempted to call that
1-800 # . Our sister has the George Foreman Junior model, that is similar, and likes hers... I think
her model would be too small for us but on the flip side, I recently saw a generic brand for about $
50.00 that looked to be "the next size up" from the G. Foreman Junior.

I love rotisserie chicken and usually crave it when it's too cold to grill outside; as would be the
case right now. For some reason... grills seem to have a tough time getting hot when it's 20 degrees
F. outside. Huh, imagine that. <G>

Thanks for any feedback...

I like mine, but I typically end up buring the skin. I need to stop using olive oil with it. I'll
bet if I used canola, it would be better. If you ever get one, I found a great brine for chicken
that I did the last time that I didn't have to boil the ingredients first with. All I can say is
Succulent!

I have one. I got it free. It works about as one would expect. It's fine for what it is.

I have one as well. The machine itself is quite good, particularly when I make and dried herb coated
roast beef.

A couple of things however: They all seem to make a 'moaning' moise after a while-I know several
people who have had this problem.

RONCO customer service sucks however. I wore a hole in their gloves and ordered a new one. They
charged me twice for it and it took me 6 months to get the credit for both. I never did get the
additional gloves. I simply bought another brand. I don't know how they are for purchasing the
additional baskets and the warming tray. I got that at a local gourmet store.

If you decide to buy, DON'T buy from the infomercial, checkout www.qvc.com. It will be cheaper,
usually comes with more options like a 3 hou digital timer, will ship faster and comes with an
unquestioned 30 money back guarantee.

Yummmm! That sounds delicious! Thank you for letting me know about liking (loving!) yours. I
mentioned to Rick that I thought I might like one for Mother's Day... looks like we'll be
getting one.

Thank you Denise!

I just love how juicy rotisseried (sp?) chicken comes out. After watching the infomercial for the
second or third time I mentioned to Rick that I thought it might make for a terrific Mother's Day
gift this year... Actually, considering the price it will be Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and
Father's Day gift.

Woo-hoo!

I have had great service from them with no problems at all. I ordered extra skewers and ties for the
chickens and got them in three days. Baskets as well..the giant ones. You should give this a try it
can always be returned. We do prime rib, turkey, whole and breasts, loin of pork and it is fabulous.

I ordered mine (today!) off of E-bay but will probably order some of the accessories (Rib basket,

Whoa! You're not kidding! That's a major price difference. Of course, the lower price QVC item
doesn't have some of the "extras" that the higher priced infomercial has... that being said I got
a pretty good deal through E-bay. The price was a little more than QVCs but had some extra
goodies with it.

Thanks for the heads up though John, I sometimes forget to check QVC and HSN's prices before making
my final decision.

These are honestly the best things ever invented for the kitchen and diet. We have had two and they
have produced some wonderful healthy eating.

I've tried just about everything as well, short of a stuffed turkey. No argument on the machine.

Yeah, that's how it is with anyone's customer service... some people experience good service and
there's always a few that get the bad service... Regardless, I CAN'T WAIT to get my rotisserie! Woo-

Iv'e done chicken & ribs. You have to put the ribs on loosely though, otherwise they shrink & pull
at the skewers.

Here's the recipe that mentioned earlier. I had dried sage leaves & they worked just as good. I also
stuck the bay leaves & garlic in the cavity when I cooked it. (Aromatics) Like I said though, most
likely better to use Canola oil than Olive oil :).

http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_16856,00.html

Honey Brined Chicken with Lemon and Sage Recipe courtesy Michael Symon

Recipe Summary Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 50 minutes Inactive Prep Time: 12 minutes Yield:
4 servings
1 (3to 4 pound) whole chicken 4 ounces honey 4 ounces salt 1 quart water 2 bay leaves 2 cloves
garlic sliced 6 sage leaves 6 thin slices lemon seeds removed 2 ounces olive oil

Mix honey, salt, water, bay leaves, and garlic together. Pull skin away from chicken just enough to
place sage leaves and lemon slices under skin. Truss the chicken and tie the other end of the
butcher's twine to the pot handle for a quick retrieval of the brined chicken. Place chicken in
liquid and let sit in cooler for 12 hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Place chicken on roasting rack in oven and brush with olive oil. Bake for about 45 to 50 minutes or
until juices run clear.

Good point. :)

> What have you tried in yours? Poultry, ribs, vegetables, etc?

I've only used it a couple of times. I made kebobs, and a big roaster chicken. It worked fine.

it is big and ugly on the counter, so I leave it in the pantry. I'll dig it out and try it again on
a beef roast.

I know that Ed Pawlowski likes his, and I respect his opinions.
