Ronco Showtime Rotisserie PlatinumAds say with the Ronco Showtime Rotisserie you can set it and forget it: with the caveat that you have thoroughly digested the instructional materials provided. Also, this does not mean the appliance is meant to run totally without supervision. Most sides and surfaces heat on use and extra care must be taken to locate the appliance away from potential flammables. While cooking, care must be taken to check that food isn't coming into contact with the heating element.

Rotisserie cooking seals in juices while draining off fat. The Showtime cooks more quickly than a conventional oven and uses less electricity. Evenly brown a variety of meats, roast up to a ten pound turkey, leg of lamb, or roast two small hens or chickens side by side. Included elastic food ties help to secure poultry to spit rods. The automatic timer has a shutoff function and a no heat rotation option. An optional accessory for steaming/heating for veg, gravy and such can be purchased from Ronco. Nonstick parts and the glass door are dishwasher safe. Consult the manual for helpful tips on getting the best finished item from the Showtime and for charts indicating cooktimes. It also includes cooking hints, more recipes for a variety of meats.

While the platinum edition promises tender, succulent meat at home and seems to prepare fowl quite nicely, some items such as burgers don't seem to hold up to this cooking method. Some customers have found cleanup fairly easy; some have found their nonstick wipes away with the remainders of their dinner. Ill-fitting parts, poor performance, and less than stellar customer service have plagued some users. Other complaints include noise, smoking, and dangerously sharp parts. Ronco is aware of some of these issues as they are addressed in their manual and suggestions are made for use which are supposed to improve the problems.
