What every best has:
We did read some complaints about the Showtime Standard Rotisserie. Most focus on the machine's build quality, namely Teflon coating that wears off and that rods squeak as they turn. Ronco's customer service also is criticized by a few consumers. We also read that the Showtime Rotisserie eats up countertop real estate and gets quite hot during cooking. Despite these flaws, most owners agree that this rotisserie is a good value.
The Ronco Rotisserie weighs 28 pounds and plugs into a standard electrical outlet. An automatic three-hour timer shuts the oven off once the cooking cycle is complete. The rotisserie comes with food ties, two flavor injectors, Teflon-coated drip tray, thermometer, non-stick roasting basket, one spit rod, four kabob rods, a carving fork/knife, rubber gloves, instructional video and recipe booklet. Be aware that Ronco sells several versions of this oven with different exterior finishes and differing accessories.
We read the best review of the Showtime Standard Rotisserie in The Wall Street Journal, where it goes head-to-head with four other countertop ovens. To see what owners are saying about this device, we turned to Epinions.com, where we found more than 170 user reviews. We also read candid owner reviews at Amazon.com, InformercialRatings.com, ConsumerAffairs.com, Sears.com, and Egullet.org.
