I am in love with my Ronco Rotisserie, the Set it and Forget it machine that you see on the infomercials late at night. Over the years, I have bought a few things from late night infomercials and generally the products were either too flimsy or did not work as advertised, often both. The Ronco Rotisserie machine does what it says. https://www.ronco.com/offer/Default.aspx Don’t let the advertising fool you. For the price of a visit to McDonald’s, Wendy’s, you can have a nice steak, salmon or rotisserie leg quarters for three or four nights!
A meal at a fast food restaurant generally cost $6 with a sandwich, fries and a soda, more if it is supersized. For the same amount of money, you can rotisserie chicken quarters for 3-4 days, a couple of flatiron steak, many pork chops, a couple of pieces of lamb, or a piece of salmon. You can even have a doze hot dogs. All without going to a fast food restaurant and waiting in line and traffic. Ironically, a burger will fall apart in the rotisserie, so there is a place for fast food.
After you purchase the machine, just put in the meat that you want, and experiment with the time a bit and before long you will perfect the time to cook. Rarely, does a piece of meat take more than 20 minutes. This means that you can skip the lines at the local fast food joint, eat healthier and take a shower and detox after work or class. If it is high quality steak or lamb, just adding salt and pepper may do just fine. Hot dogs you don’t have to add anything. Salmon easy. Pork chops might have to a little something.
In my opinion, every guy, unless he is a professional cook or something, should have a Ronco machine. Like most guys, I can only handle 5-6 receipes with this thing, but once I perfect each one of them, it’s easy. Don’t the machine from the Ronco website. The machine cost $59 at Amazon and if you can wait about a week, the super saver shipping is free. At Walmart, its $54, but you have to pay tax and go to the store to pick it up if you want free shipping, as well. The site charges you 4 payments of $39.99.
I would get at least the compact size Ronco machine. The petite size Ronco machine is both expensive ($49.99), and does not do much more than cook at piece of salmon or a small piece of steak. You will get bored of a machine this size really fast. It is very hard to put in a leg quarter into a machine this small. Spend the extra $10, and purchase the real thing, the compact or above. You will not be disappointed. It does what is advertised. I purchased both the Ronco Petite and the Ronco Compact, so I have experience with both machines.
If you amortize the cost of machine ($59) over 6 months, and use it once a week, it is well worth the investment. Cleaning up is very fast. You need to clean the rods and drip trays, and maybe the removable front window if you have spill anything. Once a month, wipe down the whole machine. Don’t let the infomercials fool you. This is an incredible investment and time saver.
