La Caja China Model #2″Aluminum – Tried it once so far and the results were great. Can’t get any easier to cook up a

I ordered the ‘la caja china’ directly from the manufacturer’s website a few days before we had an oktoberfest party at my house with 150+ guests. We couldn’t find a caterer that would supply us with a whole roasted pig so i decided to roast one myself using the ‘chinese box’. Exactly the way it was described and in little less than 4 hours of cooking time. The pig was the hit of the party and i had several requests from my friends to do another one. Make sure to ask your butcher to butterfly the pig for you; otherwise it won’t fit into the box. The result will make you look like a master chef.

It was everything i hoped it would be. The only advise i can give anyone is ‘follow all cooking directions’ and things will be perfect.

Assembly was okay – directions need to be followed specifically. Need a little extra cooking advice in the instructions for cold weather and a different design for the handles but all in all it was worth it.

It arrived in (2) days to hawaii; how is that possible???. Used it to cook a lot of bar-b-q ribs for 101 people; came out just wonderful, delicious, juicy, nice crust. Can’t wait to try a suckling pig. Just wished i could get the accessories shipped, i don’t understand why a grill and cover can’t be shipped to hawaii.

Roasted my first pig over labor day weekend. It was the hit of the party.

I am very glad i purchased it and look forward to future roasts now that i have my first pig roast under my belt. All my guests loved the meat and everyone really enjoyed seeing ‘how this box thing works. ‘one item that is confusing and that i wished i’d understood better beforehand is the description around the weight limits of the box. The documentation from la caja china talks in live weight but neither my butcher nor anyone else i spoke with was familiar with what that meant. I called la caja china (who were extremely helpful and nice) to ask what the 60-pound butchered pig i ordered would mean in terms of live weight and they suggested it would be about 90-95 pounds. What this meant to me is that my trial run of a ‘small’ 60-pound pig was actually almost maxing out what the box could do. Perhaps this is a regional thing but it threw me for a bit. Lastly, there are two minor annoyances i have about the box. The first is the handles on the grate and ash pans come off far too easily.

  • OMG!
  • Takes You Back to the Old Country
  • love it we did a 90 lbs dressed pig and

We received our caja china 2 days before our pig roast. Relatively easy to put together—then wow–this box made the roast the best ever we did the spit roast a few years ago and after 16 hours everyone was exhausted. With the caja china–after 4 hours we were eating the 100 lb. Pig we always wanted a caja china, and now we are going to cook everything in it.

Cooks a good pig but quality of construction is much less than i expected for the price. Many of the coal tray welds have come undone. Two pig roasts and i have had to do three maintenance repairs. Any bbq person knows what $450. 00 can buy you for a smoker. A product that would last years. I don’t get the feeling this product could last any where near as long.

My only suggestion would be for them to include better instructions for cooking chicken, ribs, and boston butts. Most of the instruction manual is regarding a whole pig. I watched some videos on youtube and i was able to figure out how to do those other pieces of me however some of the videos were conflicting.

Finally make the decision to purchase model #2 for my daughter’s graduation. All parts were shipped without any damage. I found the instructions on point. It took about 35 minutes to put my #2 model together. I will put it to good use in a few days and expecting to use this often.

Just put this together with the help of a friend who will participate in our first congregational pig roast in september. My friend is good at assembling things, and we didn’t have any major issues. All the parts and hardware were there. There was a little place where we had to hammer a small piece of the metal down flat against the wood because it had gotten a little bent, but that was easy. The holes lined up just fine. Assembly is pretty intuitive, and the directions, while pretty small to read, are okay. The illustrations are also small, but they do show how it goes. How everything fits together does make sense. We finished in one hour and 45 minutes, and that includes getting everything out of the two boxes that it all comes in. I am excited and would like to roast a pig right now but must wait until we in our church have time to plan and organize the roast.

Ordered it one week before a party for 30. Bought a 32-lb suckling pig at local butcher. Caja arrived 2 days before party, but i didn’t assemble until morning of party (of course). Thought we were missing the ends of the box. Turns out they are mounted together on a frame of sorts, so appeared to be a top or bottom piece. This factoid is nowhere on assembly instructions. Including panic spell, it took us way less than an hour to assemble the box. I cooked the pig exactly to the instructions nicely labeled on the ends of the box, but still used an internal temperature probe buried in one of the hams to verify.

I had a home made hog roaster stolen from me recently and needed something quick to cook for 2 parties i have coming up in the next month. I was hesitant to purchase the hotbox without actually witnessing one being used. A friend of mine told me he had been to 3 hog roasts where they used the hotbox and convinced me that it lives up to it’s reputation. Assembly was very easy, i did it without any help from anyone other that a few cold corona’s. I decided to test it with an 11 lb. I followed the cooking instructions but was a bit hesitant about the cooking time so removed it about 20 minutes sooner than directed. The turkey was very moist but the legs were a bit uncooked. So it’s best to follow the instructions without any doubt what so ever. It took approximately an hour and a half to cook the turkey and only ten minutes for all of it to be completely devoured by my friends.

Great product and received it promptly. We have a large family and needed to roast 4 20# turkey’s for thanksgiving. Turned out excellent, moist with crispy skin.

We made pork belly and it came out so good.

I am now 8 pigs and 10 pork shoulders into this #2. Here is the real deal after 6 years of useyes, the old construction is not great. They have made improvements on the new box i see. No, the smoker does not work well, in fact it sucks, but it is not neededyes, it is a b%^& to clean up, but make sure you do it right away. If you wait, well, you will regret it. Follow the written instructions and right down your times. The idea is to use it again and you can follow your notesyes it produces fabulously moist meat, approved by the local hawaiians, who went and bought a caja china after eating my pig roast. Trust the instructions, don’t keep lifting the lidi have now fed over 1000 people with this cooker, with 100% satisfaction from both me and those who ate. It is a fun, different type of cook that forces you to relax and just hang with friends.

Tried it once so far and the results were great. Can’t get any easier to cook up a great tasting pig. Instructions were very helpful and incredibly easy with the finished pig coming out perfect. I highly recommend this cooker for the regular cookout guy who wants to impress his friends. They’ll think you’re a genius.

Roast a 100 lbs Pig, any where in less than 4 hours.

I did two shoulder and a 60 pound hog and it was awesome.

La caja china es un producto excelente, para cocinar cerdo, cordero y pavo. Es muy fácil de usar, y las instrucciones facilitan el empezar a usarla.

I have not used it yet, and i’m sure it will work just fine, but for the price for what is essentially a kit, i expected the quality of the materials they used and the overall build quality to be better. There is definitely not much pride put into the product, but unfortunately that’s how most things are these days. A lot of the holes required cleaning up or additional drilling. The holes don’t align very well so it takes more effort than it should to get it together. Some of the metal that lines the inside on my unit had a few bumps on the edges butt up to the side panels. They did not seem like a big deal until i was nearly finished putting it together which required taking it partially apart again to hammer those spots down flat otherwise the box would not seal. The wood used on the corners and all over for that matter is very rough. The only thing that appears to have been done with great care was putting their logo on it. But it’s here, and i have a pig ordered for this weekend so not like i could send it back. If i were to do it over again knowing what i know now, i would look at alternate companies that are less expensive.

Love it we did a 90 lbs dressed pig and we have done 2 turkeys in it so far. They best meat ever, so moist. We are looking into getting a top grill table to put above the charcoal for additional cooking. And would love to find a way to turn it into a smoker to.

Ok, honestly i have been eyeballing one of these for the past two years. Well, finally after reading literally dozens of online articles, reviews, and watching i can’t recall how many youtube videos, i bit the bullet and ordered one. It arrived in 2 days with amazon prime, and aside for a couple slightly bent pieces of aluminum during shipping (which were easy enough to straighten with a pair of small pliers) assembly went off without incident. The ease of use was better than advertised. Honestly, this thing is idiot proof. I received it on a thursday, and cooked my first whole pig on saturday. Everyone was raving out how good it was. If you can follow simple directions, you can use this box.

Bought it to roast a pig and it was delicious. Also did some racks of ribs which came out even better. However, for the price i think they could use sturdier materials. The tray and screen are a thin gauge so after the first use they get warped. To store it i have to place something heavy on top to keep those two parts flat. Also, the handles to those two items aren’t clamped down completely so they fall all the time. Not good when you’re moving red hot coals around.

Easy to use, perfect roasting every time.

Works great for roasting a large pig.

I saw a comment on here about a 50 lb pig barely fitting in this box. You must’ve done something wrong like not butterfly the pig. I have a model number 1 which is supposed to hold a 70lb pig, and i’ve cooked two 76lb pigs in it without a problem. I see no reason you wouldn’t be able to cook a hundred pounder in this model. Keep in mind that the weight referred to is the live weight of the pig, not the dressed weight. I look forward to moving up to the #2 model. This is a pic of a 76 lb pig in the smaller model #1.

Then get the la caja china model #2. My wife bought me this as a birthday present and i immediately cooked a 52 lb. Construction was mostly solid, but there is definitely some room for improvement when it comes to the wingnuts. We had two leaks at the corners where the wheels are. My plan is to replace the wingnuts with lock-nuts and crank them down a lot tighter than my fingers can do the wingnuts. This really is an awesome cooker.

Great cooking box, the pig was ready in 3. I can’t wait till we cook another pig. I only wish the metal cover was more rigid.

These boxes are great i have always did pigs on the spit but this box keeps the pig clean and moist. If u like cooking on a spit try one of these boxes u will never use a spit again.

Love how fast meat cooks in our china box. The large capacity means we can cook for large crowds and we sometimes cook different meats at the same time.

Roast a pig in four hours, just as promised, a 100 pounder takes a bit longer.

Great for family reunions, tail partys, graduations, Luau, etc…

Growing up with lechon, i was accustomed to the cinderblock pit in the yard that my dad had built. Not the most convenient method of continuing the tradition. Fast forward, i came across la caja china at a friend’s bbq and decided to give it a shot myself. Aside from seasoning, roasting the pig is of the utmost importance. And with the instructions written on the box itself, its hard to screw it up. I have been using it for noche buenas and bbqs since and my family agrees, including my dad.

 la caja china cookbook author, perry p. Perkins, narrates and offers pro tips in this step-by-step video on prepping, injecting, roasting and chopping a southen-style smoked pig in la caja china.

Coming from a weekend hot dogs hamburgers to this. Researched on how to prepare and cook. First pig roast was amazing.

Worked excellent, wish the fire tray was built better do not know how long it will last.

My husband bought this as a christmas gift for his boss and he loved it. We saw it on the food network and thought he would be a great cooker for a guy who has a huge family that loves to fish & hunt.

This $400 piece of cooking equipment is basically plywood, aluminum and wing nuts. The holes for the screws don’t line up well and the pieces aren’t cut out squarely. The charcoal tray warps and rusts after the first use. Also, if you are not tediously careful when lifting the hog out, you’ll tip the tray that catches the juice and it will spill all in the bottom to be absorbed in to the plywood. I had to dismantle the entire thing to clean it properly. The aluminum does not wrap around the bottom of the side pieces so it leaves bare plywood vulnerable. I bought a 50 pound hog for use in the #2 box. I don’t see how a 100 pound hog would ever fit. It is now stored, disassembled.

Eassy to clean just use water and soap

Roasting a pig with the model 2 may be easier than cooking steaks or burgers on a grill. It is definitely easier than roasting a turkey in an oven. . A very easy way of roasting a pig. We did exactly what the easy instructions said to do and the result was fantastic. There really aren’t any ‘gotchas’, gimmicks, or missing elements. We used regular charcoal briquettes that we bought at sam’s club. The pig we got was bigger than we ordered, so we could only cook 1/2 at a time. We used dry rub on one half and injected marinade into the second half. Some folks preferred the dry rub, i preferred the marinade. The only thing we will do differently is we will make certain that we get a pig that is sized so that the whole thing fits. Using the model 2 for a pig roast will become at least an annual event in my family.

Ordering was easy, received it in two day’s, no damage. Assembly was not a problem, all holes lined up, instructions very clear. Was first user memorial day weekend, cooked a seventy pound pig in 3 hours, meat fell off the bone ,very good product, thanks.

Trust the instructions on the box even it goes against your instincts.

The best purchased i’ve ever made ,love it.

I used this bad boy the first time for my wedding reception pig roast, i raise pigs so i have been wanting to learn a foolproof way to roast a pig. This is itone of the guests was a seasoned ‘pig roastere’ and said this was the best pork he had ever tasted, nobody used any bbq sauce as the flavor of the marinade i used and the injecting the pig with pineapple and oj tenderized it. I cooked a 70-75 lb red wattle pig about 4 months old, in this cooker and it just fit, used about 70 lbs of charcoal, took 6 hours, the meat fell off the bone and was super delicious. The unit was delivered on time which was important for me because it was a last minute decision. Try having a pig roast catered or try renting a pig roaster, good luck, this will pay for itself in the first roast i do for hire. I might have paid a premium for this but i can say it was worth it based on the fact, it turned out really well and i know have mastered roasting my pigs, lamb is next. Made the wedding reception successful.

We raise heritage breed pigs and wanted a special way to prepare them for events. I’d seen these on food network and other cooking shows and we decided to try one and see if it works ‘as advertised’ = a perfectly cooked pig with crispy skin in about 4 hours. Our first run was for my wife’s birthday on new year’s eve and it was a balmy 25 degrees when we lit the charcoal. After 4 hours and 25 minutes from inserting the pig, we had it on the table and is was exactly as advertised. I made 3 dipping sauces and had done some injecting (an injector came with the box) and everyone loved it. Our pig was headless (for my wife) and hanging dry weighed 44#. This is a great product and practically idiot proof. The only minor challenges involved assembly. If you know something about tools and have a few large clamps you’ll be done in about an hour getting it all together. One happy surprise was the cleaning.

Great box food comes out very good. Have cooked a pig and 2 turkeys in it everything came out perfect.

Ronco ST5270SSGEN Ez-Store Rotisserie – If you have a lazy wife this oven will help

Makes delicious meat, is easy to use & easy to clean. The included basket makes it possible to rotissary even small items for great flavored vegetables or other difficult to handle foods. I cook for one, and using this enables me to make ‘guest quality’ meals without messing up the oven or having to cook large portions. All fat is captured in a small pan to be carried away and cleanly disposed of. There’s no smoking or spattering. Kabob makers are also included in the box. It’s just fantastic, making simple work of what used to be messy preparation and time consuming cleanup. I wish i’d had it years ago.

We have only roasted chickens so far but they come out just delicious, we love it.

I love it,i use it to cook all my meats,i bought a show time a couple years ago and the element burnt out so i will keep you informed if something happens,but pretty sure it will last forever.

Loved it while it worked but haven’t had it but 6 months and it crapped out.

Wonderful product, good service.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Love My Ronco Rotisserie
  • BEST little appliance EVER!!
  • LOVE IT!!!

Easy to clean, even for a bachelor. Does a fine job on whole chickens. Minor con: noisy compared to my old rotisserie george foreman jr.

The food is great and cleanup easy.

I have this exact model; i’m thrilled with it’s cooking performance. However, ronco customer service is awfulafter a year, i suffered a failed ‘gear wheel b’ (the side that accepts the pointed end of the spit rods). One of the two ‘pucks’ that accepts the pointed ends of the spit rods loosened, causing a wobble. It couldn’t be tightened, because it’s riveted in place. First, i visited the ronco web site (twice) to submit an order for ‘gear wheel b’. I was given ‘support tickets’, but no support ever came of them. Then i sent emails to ronco, mentioning the support ticket numbers, with no responses. Finally i called ronco @ 800-486-1806, and was told that there are no spare parts that they can get their hands on directly; they have to send an email ‘somewhere else’, and hopefully i would be contacted in 7 – 10 business days by this ‘supplier’. The ronco customer service rep said he could not go out and put his hands on any spare parts or accessories; that he was just a go-between. So, after 10 days, and nothing further did i hear from ronco, i called back, demanded a ‘supervisor’, and was told essentially the same thing: nothing was kept on-hand to fulfill customer’s needs.

It works as you would expect. I have only made whole chickens with. Probably used it a half dozen times now. The chickens come out very juicy but the center doesn’t have much flavor. No matter how we try to put rub on it, under the skin, in the middle etc. , the skin comes out good and the center meat comes out bland. Not nearly as good as the chicken i make on our smoker. The unit is made rather cheaply. No insulation at all, just a hollow shell. The drip pan and the plate that goes behind the heating elements are made of aluminum so they bend easily and they are hard to clean (if enough juice goes into the pan, it isn’t to bad but the other plate is pretty hard to get clean).

These rotisseries are great. Owned the original until i burnt it out after 15 years. This model is well designed and easy to disassemble. It fits well on a bottom cabinet shelf for storage.

A replacement for our foreman jr. This unit is bit flimsy, but overall not bad. Cooks evenly and cleanup is easy. Storage is what’s the big plus.

Only made chickens so far but they came out fantastic. Would recommend this rotisserie highly.

I bought this as a replacement for the old-style ronco rotisserie. I had the original one since 1998 and it finally ‘died’ three years ago. I had been looking and just never bought a new one. The first night i did a roasting chicken – 6. 5 pounds – an hour and half after putting it in the rotisserie it was done, perfectly. Everyone should get one of these.

Love it i use it all the time.

Product shipped quickly and the unit is great.

Cooks just about everything. Came fast and nicely packed.

Works even better than i could have hoped for. So juicy, turkey, beef loin (wrapped in bacon) , chicken , pork loin, all turned out great 👍.

I have an older model and wanted to purchase one for my dad’s birthday gift. He’s trying to eat healthier so i thought he would like it. He has been using it for a year now and loves it.

I really love my ronco rotisserie. All my appliances are stainless and it looks fantastic on my counter.

Chicken has never been so good. You can cook practically anything in this awesome machine. Super easy to use, and the drip tray and removable slide back interior makes clean up a breeze. I have yet to use the fish/veggie basket, but i am anxious looking forward to doing so. I love that the legs fold into the body, and the top removes (easy cleaning) and sits upside-down in the main cavity, allowing for easy storage. Mine also came with the complete rotisserie cookbook.

This rotisserie was a gift for my daughter. She has used it several times and likes it. It’s not too large and it works.

BUNN Ronco Inventions ST4000 Showtime Indoor Rotisserie and BBQ – Ronco Oven

I have really enjoyed this machine. I read many reviews on the product before i purchased it and as a result of some of the negative reviews i decided to purchase a remanufactured rotisserie (st4000) for only $79 and free shipping. I thought perhaps purchasing a remanufacture product would take care the glitches mentioned in the other reviews. The unit comes fully packaged and looks new. It is a title on the tall side, but not too wide & not much bigger than a convection oven. For those of you who have low cabinet space consider purchasing the smaller unit. I have and island in my kitchen so its perfect. The key is to clean the unit as soon as your meal is done.

I always clean it right after use and have no problems with it.

I was extemely skeptical, but being somewhat of an impulse shopper, my wife and i decided to order one with our wedding money after getting back from our honeymoon. We’ve never regretted it, as we use it more than our conventional oven. Particularly delicious is poultry and fowl. We’ve never tried ribs, but we tried roasts and other types of meat, however, turkey and chicken always come out the best. The shishkabobs come out pretty nice as well. So why four stars, instead of five?. Basically the one problem we ran into with this unit was not in the rotisserie, but the steam tray. It worked pretty good until the paint began chipping underneath the steam part which holds the vegetables. (although not on the main unit itself. ) also fish came out dry until we figured out how many, and what type of, vegetables to place in the basket with the fish. Here are the specifications for the BUNN Ronco Inventions ST4000 Showtime Indoor Rotisserie and BBQ:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Large enough to hold two chickens or a 15-pound turkey
  • Pause setting permits meats to be browned on spit
  • Tray fits atop rotisserie for steaming foods
  • Included: 6 kabob rods, flavor-injecting syringe, heavy gloves, 12 elastic ties
  • Special Packaging includes Knife and Shear set

I was flipping channels one night, and the showtime rotisserie infomercial caught my eye. While i am a lifelong vegetarian, my husband loves a good roast, so i bought the rotisserie (i would’ve preferred the compact model, but it wasn’t offered here in australia). This appliance appears to be of good quality. I can’t say how durable it is, as we’ve only used it once (that was enough, as some will find at clean-up time). Thankfully, the glass door is removable so that it can be washed in the sink, but i was a nervous wreck about knocking it and breaking it (i have no idea if it’s even possible to get a replacement door). It is difficult to clean inside, as there is a reflective shield behind the heating elements. Vaporized grease would surely migrate there. Imagine having to fully clean your normal oven every time you use it. That’s what this is like, except that it’s really greasy. The showtime was used for a christmas roast, and as christmas is in the summer down here, it made the kitchen really heat up.

Having read through the many reviews of this product, i thought i would weigh in with my two cents. I purchased the showtime the first time i saw it on an infomercial over five years ago. I have made a ten pound prime rib roast, a fifteen pound turkey, whole chickens and countless chicken parts. I have never had a meal turn out less than perfect. I have had to replace the bulb for the interior light so this should tell you how often i have used the rotisserie. To be sure, the unit looks used, with paint chips and burn marks around the exterior where the glass door meets the metal but this is a testament to its reliability throughout the years. I use this product more than any other appliance in the kitchen and when it ceases to function, i will replace it immediately. I have read complaints about smoke and fumes and i have to say that this has never occured when i have used my showtime. If i was to complain at all about the unit, it would concern the cleanup. The non-stick drip tray isn’t all that easy to clean and you really have to spray the interior of the unit (i use simple green) each time to avoid unpleasant odors.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Tacky advertising – but it works as advertised!
  • everything I put in that rotisserie comes off nice I wouldn’t trade it in for the world I
  • Great.

This is without a doubt one of the best birthday gifts i’ve every received. Chicken, pork, duck, pot roast. All prepared in the rotisserie with succulent results. I also tried to cook corned beef in the rotisserie but that didn’t turn out so well (it was a little tough and undercooked in the middle). The vegetable steamer works wonderfully as long as you time the veggies so that they don’t overcook. I live in a condo building and the neighbors always know when the rotisserie is going. This is a must have kitchen appliance. It uses very little space (i sit mine on top of the microwave). I figure i’ll experiment with just about every type of meat i can think of.

After over a year of use, we are still happy with our ‘ronco’. Without a doubt, the best use is for rotisserie style chicken. It cooks them quickly, evenly and juicy. Beef products have been a disappointment. It disassembles easily for cleaning. And you really can ‘set it – and forget it’.

After seing it in an info-commercial, i have decided to purchase it and give it a try. At first, i was rather pleased. The machine started making squeaky noises as the wheel would turn. After that, i noticed that the built-in timer wasn’t accurate. The metal vegetable compartment is a real joke. Vegetables turn out dry and the container is cheap. Cleaning is a lot of trouble. The metal reflector behind the element becomes very dirty & practically uncleanable. The good side to the rotisserie is that the poultry comes out delicious.

I watched the commercials and after seeing about 10 finally bought it off qvc for a lower price. I am very happy with it, i am a mess in the kitchen and this has saved dinner for my family. It cooks chicken that is very tender and full of flavor not dry at all. I have cooked meats that were right out of the freezer and that didn’t seem to make a difference. Also it cooks so many different meats, veggies. It is large enough to handle large turkies and roasts, but takes up only a resonable amount of space. It does get very hot when cooking so keep kids away. But it is so easy to use and clean and great food comes out with almost no effort. I definitly recommend this to anyone who needs or wants a helping hand in the kitchen.

The first weeks after i got the showtime rotisserie, i cooked everything in it that i could think of. Turkey, ham, chickens, fish, pork chops, vegetables, burgers, steaks, hot dogs, etc. I kept thinking that it couldn’t be as good as they say it is. But everytime, it exceeded my expectations. It makes the moistest, most flavorful meats, vegetables, fish and poulty that i have ever seen. I even took it to my office for our holiday potluck and cooked the ham right in the office. If you like great food that is super easy to cook, get this item. The only thing i had to adjust is on larger meats, i check it with a meat thermometer and have had to cook it a little longer but it still turns out great.

I love rotisserie chicken and turkey. So much so that i used to purchase several chickens and 1 or 2 turkey breast halves each week at the deli department of my local supermarket (my entire family shares my love of poultry cooked in a rotisserie). Three months ago, i bought this machine and have never looked back. I was paying $7 for a small chicken and $10 for half of a very small turkey breast. Now, i get them for half that amount and they are ready whenever i am in the mood. Plus it may be my imagination, but i think the ones i cook are better than the ones i used to buy. Just the other day, the deli department was asking why i never buy from them and i couldn’t help telling about my showtime rotisserie and how great everything cooked in it tastes. I discovered that if i am careful to center the chicken/turkey/or other meat on the spit not only from end to end but also so that parts of the item cooking are always equi-distance from the cooking surface as it rotates. Since i have begun being exacting about placement, it has always cooked within the time estimated.

I asked for this about 2 years ago for my birthday and my wife obliged. It looked like it was worth the gamble back then. The showtime makes the best (juicy) poultry i have ever had at home consistently. Chickens, ducks, and poussin are my favorite items to make along with a boneless rib roast and leg of lamb. The machine does let smoke escape, so you should place it near a venting unit or an open window when in operation. It is very easy to clean up thanks to the nonstick coatings on many of the pieces. The kebab rods are really good too as they rotate individually in addition to the wheel rotation. This is a great, compact unit that does a wonderful job on poultry and roasts. It is well worth the money and my kitchen will not be without one of these (will replace my unit if it ever needs to be).

Great product – i stand mine on top of my electric oven, on a rigid heat-resistant mat, under the fan hood. A timer that stops the cooking instead of just beeping is brilliant. As are the removable parts which all go into the dishwasher. As for counter space, i never use my oven anymore. That took 15 minutes to heat up – the rotisserie needs no warming time; it’s great. I do add five – eight minutes onto the cooking times for chicken from the fridge, it needs that. But all the instructions are focused on the great results with meat. I’ve gotten used to microwaving vegetables – and i wish someone had recommended steaming times?.Obviously you can’t add vegetables for as long as roasted meat – but it would help to know when you could add them on top – half an hour before the end, perhaps?.

This was a corny gift i received, but i like to cook so i put it on my xmas list. My kids got a kick out of buying it for me, i get a kick out of using it. Pretty well made, replacement parts are available from ronco. Com, and this thing makes the best darn chicken i have ever cooked at home. I even tried steaks and they came out pretty good too. Easy to clean, easy to cook, easy to buy accessories. . I was surprised and impressed, now i have to lobby with my wife to leave it on the counter all the time. . You really cannot make a mistake with this, and the price is really reasonable for what it does.

It arrived in great condition.

The rotisserie works very well so far. Positives — we like the way it cooks food, but it takes longer to cook to our taste than the instructions indicate. Cleanup is really easy (but follow the instructions to line the back with foil). We use it on the porch which gets the heat and cooking odors out of the house. It has done a turkey, chickens and a beef top round roast (which came out tough). Not so positives — it is supposed to hold a 15 pound turkey but we had to squeeze to get a 14 pounder in. Don’t put onions, carrots, etc. In the bird – instant ejection. Plan on 50% additional cooking time. We haven’t used the basket yet because the food in the center is a lot farther from the heat than the food on the sides of the basket.

I have had the same 4000 rotisserie for 18 years now. It is easy to use and easy to clean. Remove the spit unit and bottom trays and heat shield and put them in your dishwasher. Spray some krud kutter on the inside walls and wipe off, rinse your sponge and re-wipe the walls a couple of times. The door also fits nicely in the dishwasher and comes out very clean. If you haven’t cleaned it for a long time, use two detergent pods. Yes it gets hot, but i have it sitting on top of my clothes dryer and do not think it overheats the laundry area/kitchen in my home, even in the summer. It makes the best chicken, pork loin, prime rib and leg of lamb you have ever eaten. I do check the timer and periodically the temp of the meat, so i guess i don’t really ‘forget it’. If i have company i can turn off the heat for a while to delay the meat being finished too soon. It is just about fool proof. 00 for it, 18 years ago and it is still going strong.

Everything i put in that rotisserie comes off nice i wouldn’t trade it in for the world i love my rotisserie i really got my money’s worth out of that it’s really worth the money.

Overall this product was remarkable. It cooked the best prime rib i have ever eaten, but their is a downside to this oven just to let you all know. The oven is not as smoke free as it is shown in the infomercial. When we were cooking a prime rib roast, the whole first floor was engulfed with a thick smoke similar to cooking with a wok. You maybe saying that i did not read the instructions before using it, but i got other people to look at it and it is just the way it is when the oil falls onto the tray and evaporates due to the hot temperature which produces smoke. By smoke i do not mean like the kind you get when you burn wood. Other than that the oven performed very well from what i can see. Unfortunately, i used this only 6 times, the rotating motor failed. The heating elements will not work if the rotating motor fails. Because it costs so much to repair, we rest it to the landfills.

This machine is a great addition to any home. It does have its cons, but overall the meals produce from this modern marvel are awesome. I have never had dry chicken come out of this machine, ribs are moist and delicious, lamb comes out awesome. Heck, i have even done some venison roast with this insane carnivore contraption, and they came out mouth-watering good. Couple of weak points, this thing can be a pain to clean. I recommend soaking the basket in dishwater while you are eating your meal. This will loosen the crusted on skin and fat to a level that well allow it to be removed by hand scrubbing. I have tried using pam cooking spray on the basket but again, remnants of baked on food remains. The plastic gloves suck, they stick to everything that is hot, so invest in some heavy duty oven mitts. In addition, that ridiculous plastic chicken carver stand that comes with this unit is better used as watering dish for your pets.

I acutally have the smaller version of this machine, that cooks up to a 12 pound turkey. It was purchased for me as a gift, since i would have never bought something like this for myself. My family has adopted the ‘atkins’ eating plan and are always looking for new ways to easily cook meats. Well this machine does it all. My friends thought i was the greatest cook in the world when i easily cooked a chicken in the machine. It smells yummy when it cooks and i have found clean up to be very easy when you line the drip pan with aluminum foil. You can also use the drippings in the pan to make great gravy if you are so inclined. The final scoop-if you live a busy life(like me) and don’t have lots of time to spend in the kitchen but want quality, quick cooking options, this machine should be on your list.

Great Northern Popcorn Company 4094 Great Northern Popcorn Commercial 30 Hot Dog 11 Roller Grilling Machine 1650W – Great looking unit

This hot dog roller was perfect for a large outdoor party we were having and at such a fantastic price. There is really no set up, just plug it in, let it heat and put on your dogs. So much better than someone standing over a hot grill all day. We had 2 kinds of hot dogs, sabrett and nathans. Since the sabrett are thinner, they did not spin as efficiently as the regular sized nathans, though both tasted great when they came off the grill. Cleaning was not bad and i recommend keeping it warm as it does make it easier to clean. Everyone wants to borrow it now for their partiesalso, the e-site we were dealing with could not have been more helpful.

Used it this weekend 8/26/17 and it worked great.

Here are the specifications for the Great Northern Popcorn Company 4094 Great Northern Popcorn Commercial 30 Hot Dog 11 Roller Grilling Machine 1650W:

Awesome i would deffinately buy again my crew have enjoyed it during our graveyard shift lunch time, looking ways to be more creative.

Using it for concession stand. It really saves a lot of time. Our hot dogs are so big that we can only put 2 rows on it so sometimes the hot spots only hit 1 side but i just flip them around half way through and they work wonderful.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Drip pan is very easy to remove
  • A great grill for a great price!
  • Purchased Great Northern Commercial Quality Hot Dog Roller (Model # 4094)

This is a high quality machine and i couldn’t believe how easy it was to clean.

The unit came exactly as described but did not get to use it yet. Will be giving a follow up review later.

Had to replace to hot dog roller at the high school concession stand. Do roughly 100-150 dogs per night haven’t had any problems what so ever. Don’t know how long it will last, but can buy 4 of these for the cost of a ‘professional’ unit.

Our bingo group loves this machine for cooking up hot dogs to sell each week at our community’s bingo games. It heats up quickly, cooks the dogs nicely and is easy to clean up afterwards. We would buy another one if our sales and requests get bigger.

We ordered this for an indoor concession stand after reading other reviews. The price was great- it came fast and i appreciate the tip from another user to not grease up the rollers ahead of time. The hot dog grease was plenty enough to keep them moving. We have only used it for a few games and an all day tournament- but very pleased this far.

Purchased this for a non profit group that holds frequent public events. We have been very pleased with the product. It is easy to use and easy and fast to clean.

Used it for a k of c fundraiser and worked well, so far so good.

This makes great coney island hot dogs, as we found it works best when set to 11-o’clock position. Cooks our portuguese linguica dogs on the 3-back rollers at a different temperature, and is easy to clean (i use clorox wet napkins right after use. )be careful when using dogs that are not fully straight- they tend to hopscotch off the rig and then you need to decide on the 3-second rule (or not.

Packaging was good, product worked perfectly and the grade was definitely commercial. We look forward to using it over and over and over again. The merchant communicated all thru out the transaction and i would definitely buy from them again.

Just returned from a vfw department function where the machine performed flawlessly over three days. We are taking the machine up to the michigan in august when we visit the vfw national home for children. The night before our visit we will have a hospitality room and this will be fantastic for that purpose. Easy to operate and very easy to clean. Should have purchased one years ago.

A few quick points:- it can cook 30 regular sized hot dogs (5. 5 inches or 14cm long) at a time. – a well cooked hotdog, slightly crispy outside was about 15 min on medium heat. You could probably cook one on higher heat in about 5-10 min. – the rollers on my machine did not turn out of the box. Opening the panel on the left side of the unit, we saw the gear attaching the rollers to the motor was loose. 2 min fix to get it rolling again. – my first time clean of the machine took 5 min. Drip pan is very easy to remove. – hot dogs cooked on this machine seem far more tasty than boiled hot dogs.

Very happy with the quality of the product.

This is really heavy duty and well made. The rollers are easy to clean with simply a wet paper towel. Heat seems even and adjusts quickly. The rollers do get dark stains on them though, but i think this is normal.

We bought this for a seasonal concession stand and for the price i forced myself to lower my expectations. When the product arrived i was blown away. For the money it is very solid and works very well. The wattage listed i believe is more for marketing (we love more power) but for us i’m glad that is doesn’t actually draw that much power because if it did we would be blowing circuits. Unit heats up quickly and has great consistent temperature control. With its solid construction i don’t know how the expensive ones could really be any better. We used it a complete season 5 months every day and had no issues.

We have used this 4 times already.

Purchased great northern commercial quality hot dog roller (model # 4094) as a more convenient alternative to propane gas grilling, i’m most pleased with quality, price, and ease of ordering. The only negatives relate to operators manual. Under how to use, item 2, note is inaccurate for this model; front dial does not control all rollers, it controls only the front 6, while back controls the rear 5. Also, disappointed manual does not include a parts list. Otherwise, looking forward to using the machine for the first time in mid-january.

Kalorik Stainless Steel Rotisserie : I want to buy replacement for the lid

I purchased this as a gift for a family member but may end up keeping it for myself. I took it out of the box to look it over and it looks awesome.

I was hesitant at first but after my first chicken i was sold – the rotisserie is larger than i had expected but great looking. It cooked the meat quicker than my other one and left the meat juicy. The clean up is a cinch – all parts come out and the interior stays clean. I would recommend this to anyone who like good juicy chicken or kabobs – i haven’t tried anything else yet.

This item was a gift and they have used it multiple items with great success. The chicken comes out juicy every time.

This product is a pretty good item, it does smoke some, but i guess that is to be expected with any of the rotisseries. It does make a very good rotisserie chicken.

  • Could be a better design. The center element burned the chicken and

  • so easy, fast and TASTY

Kalorik Stainless Steel Rotisserie

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Roasts from the inside out and outside in, for juicy and tender food.
  • Great for grilled ribs or Cornish hen in less than 30 minutes
  • Hold up to 10-pound chicken, poultry, turkey, roast beef, ham, lamb or pork roast
  • Electronic controlled cycles cook the food evenly inside and without over-browning
  • Unlike traditional rotisseries which rotate the food in front of the heating elements, this rotisserie rotates the heat around and through the food

Found the food cooked in the kalorik stainless steel rotisserie to be quite good and done in less time than on our older standard rotisserie. I do miss the crispiness of the skin of the chicken cooked on the old rotisserie.

This is my 4th type of rotisserie and i think i prefer it to the others that i have owned. You need to remember to reduce the heat when you’re fixing chicken. I forgot and it came out to dry, so i made soup. There is no rotation, therefore it is very quiet.

In reading many of the reviews of this product, i think that some of the users really didn’t either: (1) read the directions; (2) didn’t do the recommended initial burn-off (outdoors) before use; or (3)use poultry or meat that was over sized for the cooking chamber (if any meat surface is touching the coils, yes, of course it will burn and produce smoke), and (4) as far as having meat coming out discolored or looking and tasting weird, i wonder if perhaps it wasn’t just road kill quality. It’s only common sense that what one puts into the rotisserie is exactly what one will get out—–except that it’s cooked. We printed out and followed some of the really useful reviews regarding realistic cooking times and temps. , prepping the unit (the burn off produced a little smoke for only about 7-8 minutes, and that was it), and cleanup. Wow, how much more useful these tips were than what is in the manualour first “cook” was a chicken (slightly more than 5 lbs)and it went quite well: the bird was first prepped by rubbing some oil completely over the meat surface and then a spice mixture was applied over that—-this really helped to brown and crisp the skin very nicely and evenly; we started the cook with 30 mins. On “high” (with center coil “on”); then 30 mins. On “low” (center coil “on” for only about the first 10 mins. When we determined at this point the bird was done, the unit was turned the unit “off” and let the bird sit in the chamber (with lid on) for another good half hour to “finish”. Results: as good as or better than our traditional rotating rotisserie, only in much less time.

I see these used in europe and new zealand — and finally found a decent one i could afford. Did a 5 lb chicken in 45 minutes; brown on the outside, tender and moist on the inside. I even put cut up veggies and potato in the bottom pan and they roasted nicely. Pour off the excess fat and liquid (save – use in soups) and voila.

I ordered this product 2013. It arrived in time for the holidays and the chicken was succulent. This product is exactly as described and amazingly easy to clean.

However it works and produces a nicely done chicken — crispy skin and juicy interior.

I got this for my wife for christmas and it works great. Very evenly heats the meat, easy to clean, everything about it is great. My wife has owned a couple rotisseries and likes this on best.

The technology of this oven is excellent. The only thing i mention is the weight amazon registered for this product. Amazon says it weights 5 pound when actually is 16. For international shipping is a great amount of money.

Super awesome device, i love iti love this a lot, cooked bettar than any oven, microwave, rotisserie. I should have bought this thousands of years ago. If i could, i would have lol ha ha. But this really is the best investment i have ever made, or found. The only thing i will not do is boil water in it ha ha. Everyone should buy one, i did and i love it, my cat loves it.

I put a 5lb chicken in it for an hour and it came out sooo juicy. The skin could’ve came out a little more crisp but i just couldn’t wait. Next time i’ll probably leave it in for another 10 minutes. Doesn’t take up too much counter space.

We have had this rotisserie for a month. We have used it to cook several chickens and also love it for cooking vegetables skewers. This product has met our highest expectations. A must have for healthly choice meal planning.

Thanks to the kalorik rotisserie my husband now does the cooking. We like it even much better then the nu wave. Unlike the nu wave the meat is always cooked from inside out and the meat stays juicy while crispy outside. Just like the ones in the deli stores. While cooking the oils drip out onto the pan below making it much safer for our health. Its a little bit difficult keeping the inside of the rotisserie clean. The trade off is okay and we chicken almost every other day now.

During our first use we noticed that the platform does not rotate. Then we saw the elements rotating. The chicken cooked perfectly.

I read all the reviews i could find before purchasing this and was a little nervous. I had read from some reviewers that it needed special attention, smoked too much, and/or burnt food. When you receive your ‘rotisserie’, unpack it and place on high (without lid) for 15 mins. It will smoke and smell bad while it burns off the oils and such from the packing. After that, wash the parts and the inside of the main body and it’s ready to go. While cooking it will smoke slightly, but not enough to set off smoke alarms (our smoke alarms are extremely sensitive) or bother people. You can always turn on your kitchen vent if you have a problem. I sprayed the removable elements with cooking spray as instructed, so clean-up was super easy. The most important advice i can give is to ignore the recommended cooking times in the booklet.

Absolutely love this, i cook my chicken breast in this all the time for a rotissari style meat.

Found it easy to use and clean. No moving parts but still cooks rotiserrie style-awesome. Easy to purchase but expected an emailed receipt which i have not seen if there was one. Very versitile-we are pleased with the replacement for our much used sunbeam upright carossel rotiserrie. Need to unplug kaloric before cleaning-it bites a bit. Love the center cooking option.

The center element burned the chicken and smoked up the house. Other than that, the chicken was great.

This is a great product, the only ‘uni-tasker’ we own and make use of fairly regularly. Reviews that claim it doesn’t rotate are foolish. The whole concept is that the heat is what ‘rotates’, not the food. This allows for very even cooking. I agree that there is a burn off period which is true for most things. It didn’t take more than one use. It produces a very moist chicken with crispy skin (this is the only thing we cook in it). You have to play with the time to come up with what suits you. We let the food rest inside after cook time.

Farberware Open Hearth Broiler & Rotisserie : Mine is still in use today after over 35 years

I had one of these in the 70’s. . Loved it then but it got lost in my many moves. Purchased my replacement on amazon and couldn’t be happier. It works like a charm and is easy to clean.

I had this farberware rotisserie. The exact same model has been in my mothers kitchen and mine for over 48 years. Cooks perfect pork and beef tenderloin, steaks and wings. I recently passed it along to my son and now he is cooking on it. What is shocking is the $400. 00 price tag the company is asking for it. No one should pay that amount for it.

A lot of not disclosed shipping and exchange costs that made the item too expensive.

All items included works just fine.

  • Can’t go wrong with old school cookware
  • Does a great job
  • Loved it then but it got lost in my many

Farberware Open Hearth Broiler & Rotisserie

  • Make sure this fits

  • Farberware
  • Rotisserie
  • Grill

Thank you for sending this to me. I originally had one of these and it got lost when i was moving. So i thought i would try to replace it, for they don’t make it anymore. Thank you so much i will surely enjoy it. It arrived in good condition.

One of the legs was broken – we glued it and it was fine. The motor was also broken, upon opening the cover it was discovered that a gear was loose – it still needs to be repaired.

The flavor of the food is better than cooking on your grill. No one should live without one of these.

The farberware open hearth rotisserie is amazing. That said, i would never ever pay nearly $400 for one. These are old- from the 60s-70s. We have two of them that we have gotten at estate sales over the years. Never paying more than $20 in southern california. When we come across one we buy it- sometimes it is just parts that we use for backup. You can make the most delicious chicken- a real family favorite.

My mom has one of these and i borrowed it last night to use as a grill. It was easy to use (i used it indoors), and was very easy to clean since the whole thing comes apart do not leave it unattended, however. I noticed the electrical cord became quite warm which probably isn’t a good sign and i feel like a very greasy meat might provide fuel for a fire. Keep some baking soda handy when you use it. That being said, i didn’t worry too much as i cooked last night, and the flank steak i made with it was delicious. Bottom line, if you’re in the market for one of these, i wouldn’t pay more than $50 (try to pay less, as a matter of fact) because they are old, possibly dangerous, and you might not be able to repair/replace worn parts.

I never got the productsomeone stole it off my door step. I was so looking forward to it as well. My mom use to have one, and it made the best steaks and burgers.

Excellent appliance, it is a shame that farberware doesn’t make it anymore.

Lost my old one in move to new location so i had to get new one. Last one i had for 20 years, and i swear, not a thing has been changed on it. For once someone knew’ do not mess up a good thing’. Easy to clean and replacement part easy to get.

Had the same one for 32 years had to get the same one just love it.

Mine is still in use today after over 35 years. Tomorrow, roasting a boneless stuffed turkey during the football game – can’t wait.

One is 40 years old and one 30 years old. I have made sure to pick up spare parts at garage sales. I have had to replace one plug that goes to an outlet over the years. I had one electric element fail during this time. Whenever i saw one at a garage sale at a good price ( $10 ) i bought it and either fixed it up for a gift or used the parts to upgrade my own units. Compared to a “set it and forget it” it takes longer to cook with, but is far easier to clean. For duck or goose it cannot be beat. I do not use it for grilling because i have cast iron skillets for steaks and chops, but i do love the ease of properly cooking skewered foods in that it is easy to rotate the skewers. If you can get your hands on a complete unit, you will not be disappointed but be in wonderment.

For years, i lamented about my grandparents rotisserie and would compare every rotisserie to theirs and the others would just come up short in my opinion. In searching for a rotisserie for the umpteenth time, how i came across this i have no idea; i was excited as it was the exact model my grandparents used. Seller answered all of my questions promptly. Received it faster than it was originally stated – which made me very happy. When it arrived, my husband laughed as i was like a little kid at christmas. Cleaned all of the pieces and put a whole chicken on it yesterday and it came out great. We have a pork shoulder roast on it right now and it’s looking good (we’ve had to block the kitchen off as our dogs keep circling the counter with their noses up high. Glad to see i can find parts for it if/when ever needed around the web though and the free instructions on another site. Overall, we’re very happy with our purchase as i am sure it will get a lot of use.

From the picture that tells me that this is what i purchased, it was not. It did not come with the rotisserie attachment. You have to read the fine print further down to see that it only came with the grill and you could not return it.

Love it and it is easy to wash.

We had one of these when i was a kid, used it all the time for bacon, burger patties, hot dogs, steaks, grilling buns. We never did use the rotisserie feature, i am looking forward to trying it out. The heating element can be pulled out, so cleaning is easy – just the drip pan, grate, and open pan.

I cooked on ours last weekend. After 43 years it still cooks to perfection. After sitting without use for a while i did have to take the rotisserie motor apart to lube it. But it was simple and runs quietly.

I enjoyed my farberware open hearth broiler rotisserie and prepared a beautiful prime rib for a birthday dinner party and two days later was preparing a pork loin for a christmas dinner and the motor was dead. What a great disappointment. Any chance i could get a replacement or my money back?.

This is our 2nd one and it works great. The first one we had also work great but due to down sizing we sold it now that we have a little more room we purchased the second one which shows how much we like it and how well it cooks. We use it as a rotisserie and the food cook evenly. If you like rotisserie food then this is a excellent purchase. This does require a lot of room for storage when not in use. Also i think farberware stop making them.

George Foreman GR59A Baby George Rotisserie – Amazing!

I bought this for my step father after his broke unfortunately because of the size he was not able to use it.

The george foreman baby rotisserie is hard to find in the stores. But it is a good product well built not expensive. I have not mastered the skewers yet. But can use without them and so far everything tastes great especially shrimp. I especially recommend if you have a small kitchen.

I have had my baby george foreman for several years. It is hands down the most delicious whole chicken you could ever cook at home. In the baby grill, there is a size limit of 5lbs. Which 5lbs is really a huge grocery store chicken. There is only two of us here at home. But with how big a alb chicken is, i could easily invite one or to people over and us all eat the chicken. It’s sooo beautiful watching the chicken turn, as it is constantly self basting itself. The meat comes out so moist and tender. Whenever i cook turkey or chicken in oven, i always cook it upside down. So that way the fatty, juicy dark meat self bastes the drier white meat the entire cooking time.

I bought this to replace my original model that i’ve used very often for many years. The food basket is a thinner gauge wire that the original but other than that, everything is the same. I hope to get 15 years out of this rotisserie as i did the original one. It’s great for quickly cooking fish and boneless chicken breasts, grilled veggies.

My wife’s ‘baby george’ has served us well. It’s a great little ‘cooker’. Our son, who’s turning out to be not a meanchef himself, thinks so too. A compact, efficient unit to save time on savory supper preps.

Have grilled fish, chicken and veggies and it works great. I always have a tough time getting chicken just right. Either overcooked or under cooked. There is a basket you can put your fish or your veggies in or your chicken breasts etc.

  • A bit small, but otherwise nice.
  • Good for chicken and salmon
  • I cooked 2 cornish hens

I was at a friend’s place recently and he had some chicken breast cooking in his rotisserie and it looked interesting. The fact that it was supposed to be healthier was very attractive. After some questions i started to look around at what was out there. I have a george foreman grill and i used it until it died so i thought maybe the rotisserie would work well. I didn’t need a full size one as i was cooking only for myself. I have been cooking mainly chicken legs and i am loving it. I put some seasoning on the outside and that is it. It skin is crispy and the meat is so moist. I can’t believe how simple it is.

I love the baby george foreman rotisserie. I used my first one for many years until i wore it out so i just had to get another one.

I’m a big fan of the foreman grill and use that a lot so it was a no-brainer to order this rotisserie. I am single and have limited space, so a smaller version of the monster machines i’ve seen before seemed perfect. And in that respect, this does fit the bill. Fits on my counter (although i slide it out during use since you don’t want all that heat under your cabinets.But didn’t expect how much trouble i would have trying to keep the meat small enough to fit. . Even if it fits fine when you first put it in, once the grease starts dripping, things move all over. I use a ton of string on the chickens (smallest i can find in the store) and they still tend to start banging into the bottom. Part of the problem is that it seems that the spit is closer to the bottom than the top, and of course gravity tends to pull things down anyway. Cleaning is also a bit of pain, lots of parts to clean afterwards and some don’t ever come clean no matter what you do (and i’ve only used it a few times) cleaning the inside of the glass door is near impossible without removing it (good luck getting it back on, i don’t recommend it) i assume these are common problems for rotisseries though, it’s mainly the size i have a problem with. An inch or two more would have been idealupdate: one solution i have found to the size is to just roast a full chicken breast, rather than the whole chicken.

After reading some of the reviews, i was a little apprehensive about my purchase of the baby george rotisserie. However, i tried this little gem tonight and it functioned exactly as i expected. A perfectly done whole chicken that tasted as if it were from the deli at the supermarket. The preparation stage was simple. It took longer to create and apply the rub than the rest of the preparation combined. Once i spitted the bird, i tied some twine around it to prevent the bird from flopping around and hitting the elements. Then i set the timer for 60 mins, but because of some comments i had read, i checked it at 45 mins. After the timer expired, i let the bird sit for 15 mins as suggested in the manual. Then i used a big fork to slide the bird off the spit and onto the carving platter.

This was given to me as a birthday gift from my mom last week and i honestly don’t know how i ever lived without one of these. The day i got it, i cooked a 4 pound chicken. It took 1 1/2 hours and no lie, it was the best chicken i’d ever eaten. The outside was crispy and delicious and the meat couldn’t have been more tender. Just tonight i tried my hand at baked potatoes after reading in the instruction manual that you can make them in the unit. 4 potatoes at 1 1:2, it’s as though they were cooked on the barbecue wrapped in tin foil. The unit itself is relatively easy to clean. I found that the spit required some soaking before the food remnants loosened from it but that’s no big deal.

For cooking meals for one to three people, this is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I may never oven-roast a chicken again. There are 2 things you should know, though:1) truss anything you put on the spit. Several people have mentioned having problems with 4-5 lb. I’ve done chickens up to 5 lbs with no problem, but it is a cozy fit, so tie them up well. The same goes for beef and pork roasts. Even if it looks like it should be no problem, keep in mind that the roast isn’t going to be balanced, so it’s likely to sag. Truss tightly and all should be well. 2) if you don’t already have one, get an instant-read meat thermometer, and use it frequently until you get used to the rotisserie. It does cook a bit more quickly than the instructions and your oven experience might suggest. The only real complaint i have is shared by several other posters as well. The reflector gets stained after a few uses and won’t come clean. Thus far, it hasn’t seemed to matter as far as cooking performance goes, so i’m hoping for the best down the road. All caveats aside, this does an excellent job, and i use it at least once a week.

The rotisserie which i recieved for my birthday was absolutely one of the best kitchen appliances purchases that my wife has ever made. It is advertised to hold up to 5lb roast or bird but actually holds an 8lb item. (while still cooking to perfection) there are only 2 in our household and it makes the perfect size meal, with few left overs. Even without expensive seasoning or injectors this rotisserie crisps the outside of any chicken while leaving the inside tender, juicy and fully cooked. We use our rotisserie at least 3 times per week, and are amazed by how much fat actually drips off a small bird. The convient suction cups on the bottom allow for safe use on almost any surface. The only drawback that we have found is that the spikes which hold the bird in place are not non-stick we now own the george forman grill and the rotisserie and have both recommended it and bought them for friends.

One in our house and one in our 5th wheel. Some reviews complained it was too small, but its just the right size for my husband and i. Another review said the parts rust. I’ve had my first one for a few years and use it regularly and never had a problem with rust, just dry the parts before you put it away. Chicken is better than you get at the deli. You can season it any way you want and it’s hot when you serve it.

There’s no doubt i’ll wear this rotisserie out with all the use it gives. Easy to use, a snap to clean, and really does a surprisingly good job.

Have used this time and time again. Works best on whole chickens 5lb or less in size. Remember to tuck the wings well or they will touch the elements and burn to a crisp.

We bought this to replace another rotisserie that we had left when moving, we sought something that had a small footprint and did the job for us. I researched the available ones for sale and decided that this one would best suit our needs. From the day we got it, i have liked the ease of clean up, and the speed of cooking. We don’t need a huge one and we aren’t planning on cooking two chickens at the same time. This one does one great, and two cornish game hens at once. It comes with a nice basket for fish fillets and veggies. Overall the machine is great, does what it is supposed to do and is easy to clean. Not much else you could ask. My wife likes the fact that it sticks to the counter top and doesn’t move around by bumping into it. I would recommend this to any couple that is looking for a good rotisserie to cook with. It is better than firing up the oven, and heating the kitchen. I am giving one to my cousin for a present i like it that much.

Meats self baste In their own juices

We love to do the baking hen on the rotisserie. Just a little tony’s or some lemon pepper sprinkled on the chicken —yum.

And they came out really good. Little season salt and pepper and that was all it needed. The only thing i didnt like was i could not seem to get the legs of the hens to stay together to well and they kept flopping a little and hitting the side. The piece that goes thru the birds that makes it go around seemed like it wasnt secure. It was – it held 2 birds but i was waiting for it to fall apart and drop to the bottom. The cornish hens were very tasty and the rotisserie is very easy to clean.

I think anyone who has limited space should consider this product if they are looking for arotisserie. It does a great job cooking roast and chicken. I haven’t tried any other food yet.

This rotisserie is great for reducing fats and oils from your cooking and diet. The rotisserie is easy to clean. The door comes off by matching the arrows on the side of the rotisserie with the arrows on the door. All items with the exception of the door can go into the dishwasher. I use string to tie the legs and wings together on the birds that i cook to prevent the flopping around. I rub oil on the slots to prevent squealling. My son loves to use the rotisserie to cook hotdogs and sausages. I enjoy the flavor of the different meats that i have cooked in this fantastic little rotisserie. Above all i enjoy knowing that i can cook my meats and reduce the fat from both my meats and from my diet.

When i brought this one home, hubby rolled his eyes and sighed. Then i cooked a chicken and all was forgiven. This dandy little gadget makes absolutely the best chicken you’ve ever had. I like to use a dry rub on the chicken, pop it on the skewer and set the timer for 90 minutes, walk away and come back to the yummiest, most moist and tender chicken you ever tried. I love this thing so much i have given at least 6 of them out as wedding gifts. Every kitchen should have oneplus, as an added bonus, it is super easy to clean. All the parts, including the front door, come off so you can wash/scrub them clean. All you need do with the rest is a quick wipe down with a damp cloth, reassemble and you’re ready for the next chicken. It will also do veggies (there’s a handy little cage thing for that) and roasts but i’ve only done chickens with it. Oh, if you have a big family you’d probably need the regular size rotisserie. The baby rotisserie is great for small familes and couples.

I always wanted to have a rotisserie, i am using it once every 3 weeks. Suits my family needs however, i could have bought a the next size up. Sometime i was to roast a bigger chicken.

Roasts up to a 5 lb chicken

I have had my george foreman rotisserie for 8 years and use it at least 10 a month and i love this thing. I have been thinking about getting the larger model but don’t feel like paying $400. I have read many reviews from people saying that these things don’t work, or i can’t figure how to work it, or it’s hard to use, to those people all i can say is seriously , maybe the best thing for them is to stay away from the kitchen. As with any cooking, temperature and time is everything for perfect taste and texture. It took me about 2 weeks of trial and error, and anyone that doesn’t have patients, remember this it’s not a conventional oven, keep trying and you will master this great appliance. One of the great features is that it is so easy to clean, the class door, drip pan, and all other components fit in the dishwasher, but here is some advise, spray cooking oil(pam) on the basket, cooking rods, and drip pan this will make clean up a breeze. George foreman, if you read this please bring the price down of the large model, you will sell a lot more, and if its not made in the usa, please shift the manufacturing of all your products to the us, we as americans will all benefit from this.

Normally i’m pretty skeptical of people who call into qvc and tout the wonders of the item being sold. This oven is all that and a bag of chips. I have made everything from chickens, cornish hens, roasts, turkey breasts and chicken wings (in the basket that came with the oven), and i have had good luck. The only thing you need other than this oven is a good meat thermometer to be sure the meat is cooked through or at the temperature you want. This thing, if you like to cook, is incredible.

I bought the rotisserie for my husband we just got our own place, and my girl friend recommended the baby george on amazon. I thought my husband would appreciate it, and i was half right, because i love that thing. It has been 3 weeks and it’s the most used appliance in the house. No matter what we put in to it, the meat, fish and even baked potatoes comes out looking and tasting amazing. Before this appliance i had never cooked chicken all by myself before and this rotisserie makes it so easy. Just season and let it work its magic. Not to mention the baby george saved our lives, our stove wasn’t turned on and we ended up using the george for everything. It fits up to 2 baby chickens, lamb (using the basket provided), salmon, baked potato and everything ends up looking as if it came from the cooking channel. Now our stove is working and the baby george is still our main appliance.

I really like my baby george rotisserie. It cooked great and i thought pretty fast. The only thing that i had problems with was getting the chicken on rod evenly so that it would turn correctly. After i finally got it on right it worked great.

I had a baby george for a number of years and really liked it, but i lost mine in the flood this past summer so wanted a replacement. The rotisserie arrived new, as advertised, but it was advertised to come in the original packaging, which it did not, and it was incomplete. The instruction book was missing, as were the four skewers. The rotisserie works fine, and fortunately i had the instruction book from my previous baby george. And that’s what clued me in to the fact that there should have been four skewers with the rotisserie.

It was the fact that when i received (yes i understand it was used) but, i thought it would be cleaned up. It arrived all boxed up but the people at amazon forgot to wipe off all the cooking oil.

Just the right size for one or 2 people. Easy to clean and does not take up much space on counter.

3hour countdown timer with bell and auto shut off

I have found that if you let the basket and tray and back shield soak in hot soapy water while you are eating your dinner, and the use a brush to scrub over the wires of the basket it comes out really clean. I use a scotch brite on the smooth surfaces of the shield and the tray, and i do use the brush on the spit also. It is not that big a deal to clean, just takes some time, and really, it is very worth it as the meat comes out so juicy and yummy. My friend likes to do chicken thighs in his, and the skin gets so crispy and very good.

Great addition to the kitchen, works very well, both quiet, and efficient. Fits in a very small space, needs very little room on your kitchen counter. Perfect addition to the rv as well.

We received this last christmas and have used it many, many times. This does a good job on chicken and will do up to 5 lb if the chicken is ‘tucked’ and tied well making it as slim as possible. The salmon recipe is excellent and usually turns out pretty good, although the timer has no markings between 15 and 30 minutes and you have to guess where to set it which makes it difficult to get doneness consistently right. This does not work for cooking good steak or burgers. There is no browning on the outside, making for a weird color, and it made the meat almost inedible. I was going to try kabobs but not after getting horrid results with steak and burgers. I would stick to grilling beef (or even broiling or frying) rather than use this. Clean up is not too bad if you spray with cleaner or soak asap.

For a normal size chicken, it works great. Have some good cooking twine, but meat is tender & tastycooks really well.

Your chicken will taste just like a store-bought one with this appliance.

Everyone raves about chicken from the baby george rotisserie, but let me say that it makes the best roasted leg of lamb you can imagine. The boneless version has many creases, folds, and pockets in the meat and comes already bundled in a mesh bag that holds it together. You can poke garlic cloves, rosemary sprigs, jalapeno peppers or whatever through the mesh bag and tuck deep into the folds and pockets in the roast. Then you skewer the entire roast, mesh and all, and pop it in the grill. What you get is a moist, mouthwatering, and flavorful roast that is as good as it gets.

Handle tool for easy removal of hot food

Ok, first lets get things straight, i am lazy. I got this at target on clearance for $30. I love chicken but who wants to go through the pain of making it. I rubbed a bit of seasoning salt on it, put it in and set the timer. The best chicken i ever had. Hints: buy cooking twine for larger birds, and go with the lower cooking time in the book. I got lucky on the price, but it is worth it. I am single, so the small one does fine for me. If you like birds over 5 pounds get the bigger one. Cleaning was easier than people make it out to be, just soak it in hot soapy water for a while, it all wiped clean.

The reviews i read sold me on this item. I was going to purchase the showtime jr rotisserie and am so happy i read the reviews and purchased the baby george rotisserie. I live alone and this takes the place of broiling a fish fillet, a pork chop or a piece of chicken, a hamburger, hot dog, or braut – in the oven. It uses less energy and the meat comes out perfect without my having to turn it over. It does not heat up my entire apartment, it’s very easy to clean and uses very little space. I would not be able to use this for more than 1 or 2 pieces of meat, depending on the size of the meat. So, for entertaining guest the oven will have to do.

I had my 1st baby george for 8 years and its replacement is just as good.

Nesco American Harvest 4816-25-30 Non-Stick 6-Quart Roaster Oven – one hot roaster!!!!!

This is so simple to clean up when all the cooking is about and finished with. When i cook dinner meat it really is always sooo tender. Enjoy this cooker so substantially that i ordered a single as a xmas present for my daughter in-regulation.

I have so far been delighted with the nesco roaster, but i’ve only applied it twice. I followed instructions to enable it to smoke off to start with, but it continued to smoke plastic-y smells for a great deal extended than instructions prompt it would. It took numerous hrs of remaining plugged in in the garage right before the smoking slowed down at all. Nonetheless, i roasted a rooster in it that same working day and it did not appear to have an impact on the flavor.

My roaster is all i predicted. I have one presently but i like it so a lot , i had to get one particular a lot more.

I bought this roaster to use as a sizzling pot, simply because the very hot pot gradual cookers on the sector these days prepare dinner factors to quickly. They boil the dickens out of everything. They are just to hot even on the reduced location. This nesco is pretty fantastic,because it has a variable heat knob but. The exterior of it gets so very hot, could get a unpleasant burn off if your not thorough. Even when its turned down to slow cook. You have to have to convey to the loved ones that she’s a scorching pot and never touch. Wish they would have set a minor insulation or a heat barrier in the facet of the device to insulate it some. . Other than that it is a good very little device. So recall she’s very hot and she’ll make you trot, so touch er’ not.

Fantastic for chili, roasting a hen, and so on. Super easy to cleanse thanks for the non-stick area.

Had cheap alum top rated my five calendar year outdated was glass.

  • Clean up is a breeze!

Outstanding cooker with superior heating abilities and a great, tight seal between pan and lid. However, the merchandise really speedily began shedding its non-stick coating and we are forced to use cooker baggage.

Good detail to use if it is too hot to bbq and never want to warmth up the home. Has no problem retaining up with the demand from customers of my household size.

Quality is great for the rate. I allow it bake outside the house for two hrs on significant and it was great. My to start with food was a turkey breast and it was terrific. I was upset that the relatively tacky grill insert factor hardly held up to a turkey breast then the lid would not absolutely shut. I utilised a vegetable steamer insert rather, dilemma solved. Next meal was rooster wings and it was ok. Cooker does arrive with an outstanding recipe e-book with a good deal of good thoughts in it. If you truly require a roaster oven then go for it but i never believe it is a will have to have.

I have employed this solution as a gradual cooker and a roaster, it is great. I would recomend it to everyone.

Exclusive “Circle of Heat” element wraps around for moist cooking

From the sides not the bottom like a crock pot. This is my third nesco but my 1st non adhere. I use this all the time as an alternative of an oven.

Roast, bake, steam, and gradual cook. Is ideal for a modest spouse and children. It will keep a 3 to five lb chicken comfortably. The rooster will come out moist and tender but the skin will not brown all that good. I rotate the hen so the breast meat and the back again can be uncovered to the sides of the cookwell where the warmth is produced. I manufactured my first batch of ribs in the nesco and they had been tumble off the bone tender. I debated on browning them below the broiler initial but determined to just put them in to see how they would do and they browned nicely.

Can be employed as a sluggish cooker way too. Been working with a nesco roaster rather of my oven for a long time. Really don’t cook in it and go away the house. Moister escapes and you have to insert h2o.

I am working with my new roaster for the scorching stone remedies that i do on my customers. It’s the ideal measurement for my in residence business enterprise. Never overlook to enable it smoke for an hour or much more, the odor is awful if you never.

Had a person for many yrs but wished the new non stick liner.

I obtained a nesco roaster many years ago as a gift and cooked in it so normally that it was wearing thin and starting off to get rusty in spots from the coating coming off. I seemed in lots of merchants to change it and could never ever find it. I remembered about it the a person day as i was buying online and resolved to see if they have been even now accessible or if the corporation went out of enterprise and i was astatic when i located them.

Nesco 4842-47 Professional Roast Air Roaster Oven, We love cooking with roaster ovens and wished we could find

We bought one because my mother-in-law has a larger one and we were always borrowing it. It makes the best turkey that is so juicy and with a crispy skin. Don’t be intimidated by the air portion of this roaster. It really makes a big difference in the cooking that it is not just a roaster.

I’ve used the roaster a several moments. I employed oil/butter above the chicken and sprinkled spices on leading. The rooster browned and was delectable.

I genuinely preferred this roaster, and they way it can take care of diverse features. A person extremely bad factor i encountered with mine however was rust. It is possibly the shaft from the admirer motor or the admirer motor internals itself is causing rust to operate down the shaft and into the pan. It has gotten worse and extremely diffficult to clear. I am wondering if i just received a lemon as i see no a single else has described this difficulty. I am going to attempt and clear it again and see if it stops, if not i will have to test a further roaster. There is no way i can deal with rust in my foodstuff. If it was not for that this would be 5 stars effortlessly.

Comments from buyers

“Use as normal oven with the convection as a crisper at the end of normal cooking., When you need more than a large crockpot!!!, Great Item when Large is TOO big.”

I genuinely like this oven roaster, but it is a suffering to cleanse. I use it for pulled pork & chili. I will check out roasting a rooster in it to see how that functions.

This is the next a person i have owned wore out the initial 1 soon after 5 yearseasy to use and cooks greatone of the greatest options it will maintain the meat at the appropriate temperature for a extensive time without having drying it out.

This product or service is a quite excellent addition to kitchen. I can make large amounts of soups, or just make a substantial measurement roast, beef or pork, or roast a big rooster or twelve pound turkey. The high-quality is good, holds and maintains temps. I would advocate this merchandise to anyone.

I enjoy this cooker and have employed it many situations for unique points and each individual time all the things turned out excellent. It heats pretty very well and will not take up substantially space like the more substantial cookers. I would unquestionably endorse this cooker.

Cooked our thanksgiving turkey flawlessly, haven’t tried out the other issues it can do but i would very endorse this solution.

My sister-in-regulation borrowed this for a graduation social gathering, she utilized cooking spray and thoroughly clean up was a breeze, even while it appeared baked on.

I have a six quart and a eight quart nesco and i still wished a little something even larger for a greater piece of meat. Very well, i have to say, this will do beautifully. This is one substantial roaster that can cook a compact turkey or ham very easily for my partner and i. I have cooking in it suitable now a large roaster hen and it suits in very well. I experimented with my eight quart and the hen would not in good shape in. The motive for only four stars is what another person else stated and that is the manage on this. It is the worse style i have noticed. To raise it with your hand in front and raise the lid to the back, you can get scorching steam all about your wrist. I am elevating it with my arm at the facet which is awkward but at minimum i am not obtaining a warm wrist. Nesco requirements to re design and style this manage on this lid.

I have not made use of this yet as i just acquired it, but my mother has many sizes and they function great. I have applied them in the previous and i take pleasure in the relieve of use of these tiny ovens. I will update my review as soon as i use this oven.

I changed an aged roaster with this. I had to get made use of to how considerably hotter and additional speedily this roaster cooks. I bought burned by the steam when i elevated the lid the 1st time i utilized it, so be cautious of that. I only established the lid on the top rated now. I adore that it does not have the ‘no stick’ inside, part of the reason i bought it. It does clean up very easily with out the no adhere junk on most roasters. Multiple warmth options is wonderful and it is a excellent size far too. I truly am so happy i purchased this roaster.

Rather pleased, due to the fact we experienced no other oven at the time, and appreciate the portability of it.

Nesco roaster oven is effective perfectly if employed correctly. The 1st turkey in this roaster was dry and overdone on the surface area and however company on the bone internally. The bird was not accomplished evenly. A simply call to nesco and assessment of the working experience of other’s will make it apparent that the best way to use this roaster is to use a conventional warmth environment without the need of the convection unit turned on for the big portion of the cooking. When the hen is just about completed change the convection supporter on to brown and crisp the outdoors. The hen will merely not be accomplished evenly if you use the convection admirer for the whole cooking time. Be sure to contemplate this a extremely good sized regular roaster oven with the additional characteristic of the convection fan to brown and crisp. You will be pleased if you use the roaster in this method.

We love cooking with roaster ovens and wished we could discover a scaled-down unit for the two of us for smaller foods. I appeared on my most loved purchasing web-site (amazon) and there i discovered the best answer. We use this oven extra than the bigger established due to the fact it is great and straightforward to clean. This device is extra adaptable than the larger units for the reason that most meals do not have to have to be cooked in the eighteen to twenty quart models. If you have this oven you will use it much more frequently and recognize that roaster ovens are superior to typical ovens for tenderness. Consider it and you will grow to be a believer.

Nesco is pretty handy, terrific for doing various chickens at a single time. I have done smaller sized turkeys and big batches of chilli and stew, anything i’ve cooked so far has turned out amazing. It cooks a lot hotter and speedier than a crock pot. If i experienced to do over likely would not have invested in the convection sort however. It has to be taken out for cleaning and limits the top of whichever you are striving to prepare dinner owing to the enthusiast secured on the inside of the lid. I’ve had mine for seven mths now and have utilised it many moments. I am particularly pleased with the products.

Incredibly good quality and value. Operates nicely but does acquire up a large footprint.

I now experienced one of these and i beloved it.

This is the most effective thing that i have procured over the last twenty yrs. Helps make lifestyle a breeze, meal goes in just before function, comes out beautifully when you get household.

This roaster is not as good a excellent as they were in the 80-90’s. The lid on this 1 has incredibly sharp edges. The exterior will get very hot which i you should not bear in mind occurring with my aged 6 quart nesco.

It’s so nice to have this nesco due to the fact the dimensions is great for so many things.

Performs fantastic be carful when steaming so as not to burn up your arm when opening the lid.

I have had other cookers and never ever been happy with them they just stayed in my cabinet,this cooker is good. Heating cooking cleaning is all great.

There is no other roaster greater than this 1. Just did an 11 pound youthful turkey and it was remarkable. Did not need the admirer for convection as we never have. Turkey came out soooo juicy, extremely delicious, browned and amazing. And, i cooked it outside the house, on my portch so i didn’t have to heat up my dwelling. If you like juicy meats or whichever, then this is a products for you. The biggest dimension nesco is most unbelievable for the 20 pound or larger birds. I use mine for thanksgiving. Get a small organized rooster, things it with a geared up duck, and stuff them both of those in the turkey.

Nesco 4816-25PR 6 Qt : together with Amazon is the Best

This roaster will prepare dinner at temps of one hundred fifty to 450 degrees. We realized what we ended up acquiring due to the fact we bought one particular various yrs back. We are now snowbirds and we preferred 1 for our southern residence. We could not obtain it in any of the retailers. Massive ample for a loved ones and lesser than the substantial turkey roasters that each and every position would seem to be selling this period. We have made use of our older just one for yrs and never experienced a dilemma.

Returned initial oster roaster in excess of worry about faulty way stainless steel pores and skin appeared wherever related to the black foundation. The bend where by the pores and skin satisfies the base was uneven. We tested the roaster and it appeared to get the job done but we had been concerned it could establish a leak or some difficulty over time. 2nd roaster has some small flaws on base of removeable prepare dinner pan after our very first take a look at use but the slight bubble flaws did not worsen from various hrs of 19 pound turkey & roasting, so we decided to keepthat just one.

This 6-quart nesco roaster arrived in polished look and operates really perfectly. The circle of warmth system is no gimmic. Two cornish hens we roasted at the same time were very well and tender toasted in a person hour. We spray the within of the prepare dinner pan and therim exactly where the glass lid rests before every use. We also have gradual roasted two two. five pound cuts of porkloin coated in carrots, onions, parsnips & turnips. Positioned the veggies in thirty minutes after the meat and removed beforemeat was performed. The loin was rendered significantly a lot more tender and tasty slow roasting for 3 hours at 200f.

I requested this nesco roaster right after not likeing a pair issues about my initially just one. The to start with 1 was the non-stick cookwell and the lid was i guess aluminum. Whilst i never ever utilized steel utinsils in the cookwell it even now received scratches and started out peeling and the lid begun to rust so i was enthusiastic to get this product with the steel roaster and glass lid. Sadly the lid did not appear as mentioned and like my last just one it is rusty on the lookout.

I purchased this roaster to consider and change the previous faculty crock pots that my mother employed to cook with which cooked at a great deal reduce temps than today’s crock pots (they cook at some thing like 209 degrees now – versus one hundred eighty-190 in the more mature types – because of to fda food stuff safety regs evidently). So my system will be to prepare dinner at around one hundred eighty-a hundred ninety so i can truly gradual prepare dinner meat for 10+ hrs.

I experienced hoped the ‘porcelain cookwell’ would be equivalent to a crock pot in heft and thickness, but, assuming i have the right product, (4816-25prg which is a sticker on the box but due to the fact nesco seems to use the identical packaging and seemingly the identical photos online for both equally the porcelain and non-stick versions with very little pinpointing a big difference apart from the products id sticker i cannot be guaranteed) the cookwell basically would seem to be steel coated with porcelain. It is hence very mild and per the guide, the porcelain can be cracked. I have fears that it will not be quite durable, as some of the very poor evaluations have said. I would be expecting that a crock pot type porcelain cockwell would previous lengthier, by many years, than the outer shell containing the heating element. This cookwell having said that, i would be astonished if it lasted five yrs unless i am exceptionally careful though cleaning it. I have yet to try out out cooking with the merchandise to see if it at minimum fulfills my initial objective obtaining it: genuine sluggish cooking of meals. Probably i will update this evaluation at the time i have accomplished so.

I was happy to improve to the porcelain cookwell. I was dissatisfied,nevertheless, that i obtained the metal lid, not glass as advertised. I contacted the provider and was instructed only steel was readily available. If that is the case, you require to suitable that in your listing details.

Good product for your kitchen area, works terrific.

We use this roaster all of the time for soups, roasted rooster, beef etc. Heat is consistent and it is quick to clear.

Soon after working with the roaster only when, the liner was pretty complicated to clear. I seen the rim of the liner showed signs of rust. I returned the merchandise to amazon. Upon likely to the nesco internet site, i uncovered you can purchase a far better top quality liner for an further $eighteen. That would be okay if i have been utilizing the oringinal liner for a few of several years, but not immediately after only 1 use. Appreciate the cooker by itself, inadequate top quality on the liner.

This is my 3rd nesco roaster. This a single is enhanced with the glass lid and cooks wonderful. No difficulties with shipping and arrived in two times.

The nesco 6 quart roaster/slow cooker is best for all your smaller cooking wants. Working with this roaster has permitted my spouse to lessen the use of the large oven in our stove saving us funds on our utility expenses.

I browse description, viewed their tiny motion picture and anticipated a glass go over. Did not receive glass deal with so let down in untrue advertising, description, connect with it what you want. Will not return as is a trouble.

I experienced a 6 quarter nesco roaster and gave it to my daughter. It was a various layout, but a 6 quart ovenbut, with just about anything i owned in nesco they all worked excellent.

The nesco roaster works very well. The lid is tricky since it has to sit in a precise location in buy for it to be shut absolutely, but total it is a great solution. The porcelain is tougher to cleanse, but i would rather spend the additional time cleaning it than obtaining the nonstick coating.

This has to be one particular of the finest buys that i have built in awhile on line. I cooked a turkey in it and family members was 2 hours late arriving. I enjoy this and have been working with it for a lot of other meals.

Have baked a full rooster, designed a sirloin roast and chili.
