Introduction
Your George Foreman Rotisserie Oven is a combination Rotisserie
and Oven. With a powerful motor, large cooking area, and heavyduty Rotisserie Bar the Rotisserie Oven will beautifully and evenly
cook an extra-large turkey!
Complete with all the accessories you’ll need, your George
Foreman Rotisserie Oven allows you to cook anything from delicate
fish or vegetables to large poultry items and even a pizza! Cook
fish or hamburgers in the Adjustable Basket or cook “guilt-free”
air-baked fries in the Roasted Veggies/Air Bake Basket. Any way
you cook it—it’s healthy and delicious!
ROTISSERIE
Foods which are cooked on a Rotisserie are extra flavorful,
because they are self-basted with their own juices. Foods are more
healthful as fat can drip down, away from food during cooking.
Food to be cooked on the Rotisserie must be no longer than 12
inches. This allows the entire piece of food to be over the Heating
Elements. Weight of food to be cooked is less important than
length.
Carefully center food (especially food with a bone in it) on Rotisserie
Bar, as unbalanced food will cause a jerking motion during cooking.
This causes undue stress on the Motor. Use the Meat Tines to center the food and secure onto Rotisserie Bar with End Brackets.
When using 4-prong Meat Tines for extra-large cuts of meat, you
may eliminate the End Brackets (to make more room on Rotisserie
Bar). Properly centered food can usually be judged by sight; however, test for balance by rotating the Rotisserie Bar with your
hands. You will feel a “jerking” motion if the food is not balanced
properly. Adjust food as necessary.
Use cooking string to tie poultry at wings and legs. This will compact the bird so no parts touch the Heating Elements.

serious injuries can occur.
Before Using Rotisserie Oven for the First Time
Before using your George Foreman Rotisserie Oven for the first time, wash
all accessory parts with hot, soapy water. Rinse all parts well and dry thoroughly. Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the inside and outside of
the Rotisserie Oven. CAUTION: Never immerse the Rotisserie
Oven in water or any other liquid!
12
Preparing for Use (Cont.)
Prepare Food
We recommend preparing the food to be cooked before proceeding with any cookware assembly. Cut all vegetables to be cooked
or prepare a homemade marinade for extra flavor (see “Recipes”
for information about Marinades and Rubs). If necessary, store food
in refrigerator while preparing Rotisserie Oven.
Assembling the Rotisserie Bar
Before placing any items to be cooked onto the Rotisserie Bar, we
suggest familiarizing yourself with how the Rotisserie Bar fits into
the Rotisserie Oven and how each accessory works.
1. Locate the Rotisserie Bar.
2. WITHOUT TURNING THE ROTISSERIE OVEN ON YET, use the
Cover Handles to lift open the Cover.
3. Angle the Rotisserie Bar so the pointed end fits into the center hole in the
right side (when facing front of
Rotisserie) of the Rotisserie Oven .
See Figure 1.
4. Move the square, “nut” end of the
Rotisserie Bar so it fits into the cut-out
on the left side (when facing front of
Figure 1
Rotisserie) of the Rotisserie Oven.
This is the correct position for assembling the Rotisserie Bar.

Assembling Accessories onto Rotisserie Bar
IMPORTANT: All foods must be secured onto Rotisserie Bar.
Whenever possible, you must use the End Brackets to secure the
accessory/food (Meat Tines, Adjustable Basket, Roasted Veggies/Air
Bake Basket). However, when cooking extra-large cuts of meat or
poultry, it may be necessary to eliminate the End Brackets to make
more room on the Rotisserie Bar. In this case, you MUST use the
4-prong Meat Tines and the Wing Nuts (removed from End Brackets)
to secure food into place on Rotisserie Bar. When using 4-prong
Meat Tines with EXTRA-LARGE CUTS OF MEAT, skip directly to
the "4-Prong Meat Tines" section.
NOTE: Always place accessories and meat/food onto Rotisserie
Bar from the pointed end.
1. Determine whether you will use the 2-prong Meat Tines or the
4-prong Meat Tines (depending upon food/meat size). See Figure
4 and example turkey and chicken drawings on following pages.
When using 4-prong Meat Tines with EXTRA-LARGE CUTS
OF MEAT, skip directly to the "4-Prong Meat Tines" section.
For all other Meat Tines, proceed with steps #2 and #3 below.

HELPFUL HINTS WHEN COOKING LARGE CUTS OF MEAT WITH A
HIGHER FAT CONTENT:
• Cook large cuts of meats only on the Rotisserie Bar; cook slabs of meat
(such as spare ribs) in the Adjustable Basket. Never cook large cuts of
meat or poultry directly on wire rack.
• Remove all grease residue from the cooled Heating Elements.
• Trim off all excess fat from meat before cooking in the Rotisserie Oven.
• Add about 2 cups of water to Drip Tray. This will reduce smoking and
cool the grease as it drips into the Drip Tray. Be sure to maintain the
water level in drip tray while cooking.
• Set desired cooking time and set cooking temperature to 350˚F.
• Press "ON" Button and select 2 lower (front and back) heating elements
setting. Turn motor on. As you use the oven, you may decide to use
three elements based on size of the food and recipe.
• Cook beef and pork until meat thermometer reads 160˚F for medium and
170˚F for well done.
CAUTION:
Always use water in Drip Tray and do not leave Rotisserie Oven unattended
when cooking meats with a high fat content. If the appliance begins to
smoke abnormally or malfunctions during use, immediately depress the
"OFF" button.
Excessive fat drippings which touch the hot Heating Elements may momentarily ignite . If the grease continues to flame for more than a few seconds,
DEPRESS THE "OFF" BUTTON and wait for 10-20 seconds. If the grease
continues to flame, carefully open the cover and sprinkle up to a quarter
cup of baking soda over the flames to smother them. Never pick up or
move Rotisserie Oven with hot grease in Drip Tray.
After unit has COOLED COMPLETELY, clean Drip Pan and Heating
Elements and continue cooking using steps above.

Cooking Chart
The following times are meant to be used as guidelines only. Times
will vary due to the thickness of the meat being cooked. To be
sure that a meat is truly done, use a meat thermometer. If the food
does need more time to cook, reset the timer in 5-10 minute increments and check periodically so you do not over cook.

Hints and Tips
CAUTION: Always protect hands with oven mitts when handling hot
Rotisserie parts!
• Do not place Rotisserie Oven underneath cabinets or on a
tablecloth during use.
• Times given in Cooking Chart are suggestions. Cook meat to
your own tastes.
• To make clean-up easier, we suggest lining the Drip Tray with
Aluminum Foil.
• To limit any smoke which may occur as a result of dripping
juices, add 2 cups of water to the Drip Tray (just enough to
cover bottom) before beginning cooking. Check Drip Tray periodically during cooking and add more water as needed. Adding
water to the Drip Tray will also make clean-up easier!
• Before beginning the full roasting process, press the Motor
Button to let the machine rotate a few times with meat in place.
Be sure the meat rotates freely and does not hit any of the
Heating Elements when it rotates. (Although the Motor will turn
when the Motor button is pressed, the Rotisserie Oven will not
turn on unless the Timer is set.) If the meat does hit any of the
Heating Elements, tie the food with cooking string or you may
need to cut the meat down in size slightly.
• You may want to lightly oil the Rotisserie Bar and other accessories to prevent sticking.
• Do not cover food while it is cooking in the Rotisserie Oven.
• Do not attempt to cook food in the Rotisserie without the Cover
in place.
• Use the Oven light only as necessary to check the status of the
cooking food. Do not use the light continuously during cooking
as this will greatly reduce the life of the bulb.
• When cooking fatty foods (duck, turkey, etc.), check Drip Tray
often to be sure the drippings do not overflow.
• When food is done roasting, let it sit for 15-20 minutes to let the
cooking process complete and to allow the juices to settle
before carving.
• Make sure to use oven mitts or hot pads when removing the
Rotisserie Bar with (or without) the Rotisserie Bar Remover.

Recipes
A Little About Marinades and Rubs
Marinades tenderize, add flavor and moisten all kinds of foods. To
keep beef, fish and chicken flavorful and juicy, a marinade is crucial.
There are three basic ingredients in most marinades. Acids (vinegar, citrus, wine, etc.), oils and spices. The acids tenderize, the oils
moisten, and the spices add the flavor.
The amount of time a food marinates depends on the flavor and
texture of that food. For example, fish should only marinate for up
to 30 minutes or less, while a steak should marinate for a couple of
hours or more.
While foods are marinating, they should be kept refrigerated. It is
best to remove the food and bring back to room temperature
before cooking. NOTE: Do not allow raw or uncooked meats to
stand at room temperature for extended periods of time.
Extra flavor can be added to meats by rubbing with your choice of
spices and herbs. This is called a dry rub. Before cooking, rub the
food with spice and herb mixture and it is ready to cook. Common
examples of spice rubs are cracked peppercorn, garlic, or rosemary.
Beef Marinade
1-1/2-2 cups each: water and dry red wine
8-10 black peppercorns (cracked)
6-8 cloves garlic (whole)
1 red onion (sliced)
1 Tablespoon dry rosemary
• Mix ingredients together and pour over desired meat portion.
Allow to marinate overnight turning from time to time.
• This marinade is the best for most kinds of meat including venison and tougher cuts of meat.
