IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
These items: Heat Shield, Non-stick Grate Cover and Drip Tray must always be in
place when using your Rotisserie. When using electrical appliances, basic safety
precautions should always be taken, including the following:
1. V ery Important: Read all instructions and watch instructional DVD before using
the machine.
2.To protect against electrical hazards, do not immerse cord, plug or appliance itself
in water or other liquids.
3.Do not touch hot surfaces. NOTE: (Glass Door, top, back and sides of the Rotisserie,
as well as the Dual Heating Tray, Drip Tray, Non-stick Grate Cover, Heat Shield and
Heating Element all get very hot during use and retain heat after use – even when
Glass Door is positioned underneath the unit.) Always use adequate oven mitts or
gloves when handling these hot surfaces and when checking hot foods.
4. F or Adult Use Only: Close supervision is always necessary when the Rotisserie
is used near children.
5.Unplug Rotisserie from outlet when not in use, and allow unit to cool thoroughly
before putting on or taking off parts, such as the Non-stick Drip Tray, and Non-stick
Grate Cover, and before cleaning.
6.Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance
malfunctions or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to
Ronco Holdings, Inc. for examination, repair, electrical or mechanical adjustment.
Call 1-855-85-RONCO for return instructions.
7.Turn off and unplug the Rotisserie if you smell or see heavy smoke or fire. After it
has cooled down, make adjustments so nothing touches the Heating Element as the
food rotates. Do not open the Glass Door until it has cooled down. This is an electrical
appliance; never put water in it, or on it to cool it down or stop it from smoking.
8.Do not use any attachments or anything that is not recommended by Ronco Holdings,
Inc. The use of such items may be hazardous.
9.Do not use outdoors.
10.Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch hot surfaces.
11.Do not place appliance on or near a hot gas or electric burner, in a heated oven
or near easily flammable material.
12.Use only on a stable, heat-resistant surface and place unit at least 8” (inches) from
walls and 8” clear above unit.
13.To disconnect, turn machine Timer to “OFF” position, then grip plug and pull from
wall outlet. Do not pull on cord.
14.Always unplug the unit before attempting to move it. Never move the unit when
it contains hot oil, liquids or hot foods.
15.Use extreme caution when working near the hot pieces and the Heating Element
after using Rotisserie as these parts become (and remain) very hot. Also use maxiIMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

mum care when removing Drip Tray or disposing of hot grease or other hot liquids.
16.When using the Rotisserie Baskets, be sure no small bones or other food can fall
between or extend beyond the wires and catch on the Non-stick Grate Cover or
Heating Element or anything else during rotation. It is important to check while
cooking. If the food moves around inside the Basket, stop the machine. Put Oven
Gloves on and carefully take out the Basket. Tighten the lid down further so the
food can’t move or slip around in the Basket as it rotates. The Basket gets hot
so please use caution.
17.Do not clean with a metal scouring pad. Pieces can break off the pad and touch
electrical parts, creating a risk of electrical shock. In addition, scouring pads may
damage Rotisserie finish or the nonstick parts.
18.Do not use appliance for other than its intended use.
19.Oversized foods that touch Heating Element must be trimmed down and metal
utensils must not be inserted in the appliance as they may create a fire or risk
of electrical shock.
20.Front, back, top, bottom and side surfaces become very hot. Do not allow contact
with any objects other than the Dual Heating Tray (sold separately) in its proper operating position. A fire may occur if the Rotisserie is covered or touching flammable
material, including curtains, draperies, walls, and the like, when in operation.
21.Do not place or store any objects or material other than foods and manufacturer’s
recommended accessories in the Rotisserie. Do not place or store anything on top
of the Rotisserie when it is plugged in other than the Dual Heating Tray. (sold separately)
22.Unplug unit before changing/replacing the interior light bulb (25 watt small
appliance bulb).
23.Polarized Electrical Plug: To reduce the hazard of potential shock, this item has a
polarized plug (one prong is wider than the other), which will fit only one way in a
polarized outlet. If the plug does not fit the outlet properly, turn the plug the other
way; if it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician for assistance. Never use
this plug with an extension cord unless it fits properly. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DEFEAT
THIS SAFETY FEATURE.
24.short cord instructions: A short cord is provided to reduce the risks of
becoming tangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Extension cords may be used
if care is exercised in their use and the wattage rating is at least as great as the
wattage stamped on the back of the appliance. If an extension cord is used, it
should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter or tabletop where
it can be reached by children or tripped over accidentally.
25.HEAR A SQUEAK? No problem. Put a drop or two of vegetable oil on the Gear Wheel
Nub before inserting the Spit Rod Assembly in the machine.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Showtime ® Rotisserie
Important: “Set It and Forget It” ® only after all instructional materials
(written and DVD) have been carefully followed.
Make sure food safely rotates without touching the Heating Element.
Please Don’t Take “Set It and Forget It”® Literally
Always use caution and check on your Rotisserie from time to time.
It is highly unlikely, but if you should see or smell heavy smoke it’s because the food is
rubbing against the hot Heating Element. This indicates that the meat or poultry is too
big or it wasn’t placed properly - or the food is off-center (lopsided) on the spit rods or
in the basket. If this occurs:
Turn off and unplug your machine. Do not open the Glass Door. Let it cool down.
Trim any excess fat or meat, position your food tightly in the basket and be sure the
food is centered in the basket so it always rotates without touching the Heating Element.
Cleaning and Caring for your Rotisserie
Before First Use: Be sure the Rotisserie is not plugged in. Wash and dry the
removable parts in warm soapy water. Never immerse the machine or the cord in
water. Keep at least 8 inches of clearance on all sides and do not place it under a
cabinet when in use. A little smoke is normal when you first use the machine.
The Glass Door: Set the right side pin in the bottom first then slide the left pin in.
After Use: Unplug and allow it to cool before washing any parts. Note: The Heating
Element cleans itself and no other maintenance is necessary.
The Light: The light is on when the heat is on. If you need to replace the bulb, it uses
a 25 watt appliance bulb.
Never Use Metal Cleaning Pads on the Non-stick Surfaces. They will permanently
scratch the surfaces of the Grate Cover, Drip Tray, Steaming Tray, etc.
Discoloration? Some discoloration over time is to be expected when you work with
hot food - especially food with fat. It’s normal and will not affect the function. On white
machines it gets slightly browner on the front of the machine behind the Glass Door
and on the Dual Heating Tray. Fat from roast beef can be the worst offender. While not
recommended, you can return your machine and, for a nominal fee, the factory will
refinish the special outside surface.
Any repairs should be handled only by an authorized service facility. Call Customer
Care at 1-855-85-RONCO (there is a 24-hour Phone Message Center after hours). If
all lines are busy, please contact us at support@ronco.com or visit our online support

Instructions
Heat Shield
Very Important: Always
put the Heat Shield, NonStick Drip Tray and Grate
Cover in place
before operating.
NOTE: The Heat Shield is not included in the 3000 Series models.
Never operate without Heat Shield in place behind the Heating Element. Insert it from
the top. Discoloration over time is normal. From time to time you can remove it and use
steel wool to remove and clean any grease buildup. It is also dishwasher safe.
Non-stick Drip Tray and Non-stick Grate Cover must always be in place when using
the rotisserie.
Dishwasher Safe! You can put the Drip Tray, Basket and the Glass Door (if it will fit)
all in your dishwasher. Rinse off any grease first.
Even Easier Clean Up! You can line the bottom of your Drip Tray with a small sheet
of aluminum foil. Be sure it is flat against the bottom.
Non-stick Spit Rod Assembly
Removable gear wheel fits on the Spit Rods after food (or
Basket) is loaded in place. It is heavy and has sharp gear
teeth. When carrying the Spit Rod Assembly always tilt
this end upward so it won’t fall off.
Careful! Use CAUTION. Tips are sharp. Please be very
careful with your hands when loading any food onto the Spit
Rods.
Spit Rods are connected with screws to one gear wheel.
Place the removable gear wheel on after the food is loaded.
Carving Platform keeps the Spit Rod Assembly in place so you
can load food in upright position on a counter top or in a sink.

INSTRUCTIONS: Non-stick Spit Rod Assembly
Showtime ® Rotisserie
CAUTION: Keep at least 8” clearance all around from walls, cabinets and other
objects when using the rotisserie to prevent heat damage. Don’t put charcoal
briquettes, hickory chips or anything else in the machine that is not authorized by
Ronco Holdings, Inc. Do not use under cabinets. ROTISSERIE IS HOT!
Always use CAUTION with Hot Food and Metal Parts. The
Food, Basket and the Spit Assembly get HOT! Always wear
protective gloves when removing the Basket. If you feel the Oven
Gloves are not insulated enough to adequately protect you from
the hot surfaces you are handling, set whatever you are holding
down immediately and wait until the food and the metal parts
cool down. You may want to use a thicker oven glove or mitt.
Rotisserie Basket
Perfect for hamburgers, chicken pieces, vegetables, whole fish
and fish fillets, steaks, chops, cutlets and smaller flat roasts.
After putting the food in the Basket, compress the Basket lid very
tightly so no food can move, whatsoever. This can be done by
compressing the lid further. CAUTION: The Basket gets hot.
Be sure nothing extends out between the wires. Make sure
wings are all secure inside the Basket with no parts hanging
out so they can’t slip out and hang up on Grate Cover or Heating
Element.
You can use a small strip of aluminum foil inside the Basket
on the top and bottom edges (the edges that rotate near the
Heating Element) to keep the tips of the wings from burning.
Set the Spit Rods in the Carving Platform. Line up the two small
loops on the Basket with the Spit Rods. Then drop the Basket
down on the Spit Rods, and match it to the corresponding loops
on the other end of the Rotisserie Basket.
Check the Basket occasionally and be sure the food is still tight.
If not, stop the machine and carefully take out the Basket and
tighten the lid.
When the food in the Basket is done, you can remove the Basket
by keeping it in a horizontal position.
Remember the food, Spit Rod Assembly and the Basket
are all HOT – take precautions.

Always use Caution with Hot Food and Metal Parts. The Food, Basket and the
Spit Assembly get HOT! Always wear protective gloves when removing the Basket.
If you feel the Oven Gloves are not insulated enough to adequately protect you
from the hot surfaces you are handling, set whatever you are holding down
immediately and wait until the food and the metal parts cool down. You may
want to use a thicker oven glove or mitt.
How to Tie Chicken
Elastic Food Ties are designed to be an easy-to-use method of securing poultry on
the Spit Rods. It is very important when using your Showtime® Rotisserie that food is
securely tied and fits onto the Spit Rods so that the food will not touch the Heating Element and is evenly centered all around.
It is recommended that you cut off the tail from the chicken and remove any excess fat
or loose hanging parts – especially around the main cavity so heat can enter inside the
chicken while it’s cooking.
The illustration shows how to tie a bird with one or two ties.
Start Breast Side Down
Finish Breast Side Up
How to tie a chicken using 1 tie
With one tie you go behind each wing, cross over the back and pull it over the bottom
of the bird and up the front to hold the legs together. Then tuck the wings inside the tie.
If a Food Tie is too long, you can shorten it by tying a knot in it and cutting off the
excess with scissors.
10
INSTRUCTIONS: How to Tie Chicken
Showtime ® Rotisserie
How to tie a chicken using 2 ties
Using two ties, shorten them both and put
one over the wings and one over the legs.
It’s very easy.
You can also use several Food Ties to secure
any bird. If you run out of Food Ties you can
use butcher’s twine until you can order more
Food Ties.
How to Tie Turkey
Tie your turkey right: make it tight! When preparing a Turkey, the wings and legs
must be tied down securely to prevent them from touching the heating element.
REMEMBER: Your must use Heavy Twine or String when fixing your Turkey.
DO NOT use the elastic Food Ties. Keep the cavity open to heat.
Stuffing Rotisserie poultry is not recommended.
Depending on the model of your rotisserie, you will only be able to cook a certain size
turkey. Please see below:
3000 Series
4000 Series
5000 Series

• Dimensions: 25.6” x
16.5” x 18.7”
• 23 lb maximum
As your Turkey rotates, the wings and legs do have a tendency to bow out. It is Very
Important that you follow these instructions to make sure that no part of your Turkey
touches the Heating Element!
MAKE FOUR OR FIVE TIES WITH HEAVY STRING OR TWINE!
(FOR BEST RESULTS WET THE STRING OR TWINE BEFORE USE)
TIE YOUR TURKEY IN FOUR OR FIVE SPOTS:
Two ties over the Wings, One or Two ties over the
wide part of the Drumsticks, and One tie over
the Legs, as shown above. Be sure that nothing
hangs over or extends beyond the Gear Wheels.
Always center your Turkey on the Spit Rods.
REMEMBER TO TIE EACH STRING AS TIGHTLY
AS POSSIBLE.
If any part of your Turkey (or any game bird or other food) Touches the Heating Element
while cooking, IMMEDIATELY TURN OFF YOUR ROTISSERIE and re-tie the Bird more
securely. If, after re-tying, any part of your Turkey is still touching the Heating Element,
the bird is too big and must be trimmed down, where necessary.
INSTRUCTIONS: How to Tie Turkey

ST5000 Series Rotisserie
Placing Poultry on the Spit Rod Assembly
There are two ways to load the Spit Rods.
Keep hands clear of pointed rods as they
exit from the meat.
Piercing Poultry with Rods Hold the tied poultry or meat down securely with one hand
while firmly pushing the Spit Rods into the bird, through the meaty portion of the breast
area. The Spit Rods are sharp so always be careful not to puncture your hand.
When inserting the Spit Rods, push at a slightly downward angle and then level out
the Spit Rods so that they go through the breast and exit the bird on the other side at
approximately the same level. (Note: You should gently squeeze the legs of the bird
together when pushing the Spit Rods through the bird.)
Carving Platform to Load Chicken
6000 Series models will
cook up to 3 chickens.
Carving Platform to Load Chicken Try putting the food on by using the Spit Rods in
the Loading Base and put the chicken on breast first using gravity to help. Be sure you
center the food within the area of the two Gear Wheels. Also balance the food so the
weight is evenly distributed.
12
INSTRUCTIONS: Placing Poultry on the Spit Rod Assembly
Showtime ® Rotisserie
After the food is held securely on the Spit
Rods, put the other Gear Wheel in place.
The Spit Assembly can now be placed in the
Rest Area just inside the Door. Then move on
to A or B.
Rest Area
You can rest your loaded Spit Rods and easily
adjust your food and add Kabob Rods, etc.
Small Chickens or Game Hens Side-by-Side
You can also rotate two small chickens or game hens side-by-side. Place Spit Assembly
in vertical position with platform underneath. Push the birds on the Spit Rods through
their centers, and pierce wing to wing. Place the first tied chicken on its side and run
both Spit Rods through it. Duplicate this method for the second bird. Leave a little
space between the two birds so they can brown faster and more evenly. Keep all parts
within the Gear Wheels and centered all around.
A or B Cooking Position?
The Spit Rods can go to Position A
for normal size foods. Use Position
B for small foods and/or Speed
Basket – to cook them closer to the
Heating Element.
Use Position B for a single chicken
3-1/2 lbs. or less. Tie it tightly. If any
piece touches the Heating Element
while rotating, move it down to
Position A and add a bit more time.
The first position for the Spit Wheel
Assembly is the Rest Position: Use
this for easy loading and unloading.
B

Rest – for easy loading/unloading
A – for Normal Sized Foods
B – for Small Foods and/or Speed Basket Closer to the Heating Element
CAUTION: To prevent a wheel from acci-
dentally falling off, always carry the end with
the Removable Wheel held slightly higher. The
wheels are heavy and have sharp gear teeth.
INSTRUCTIONS: A or B Cooking Position?
13
Showtime ® Rotisserie
Loading the Spit Rod Assembly
Important: Food must be centered.
Put the Spit Rods through center of the food so it will be balanced and the food does
not touch the Heating Element as it rotates. This is important for large foods like
turkeys, standing rib roasts, 2 chickens side-by-side or any large piece of meat that
goes directly onto the Spit Rods. Small foods and pieces go in a Basket.
Trim off excess fat and skin or loose pieces
– especially around poultry cavities so heat
can enter as it cooks.
Trim turkeys, standing rib roasts and other
large food to be sure nothing (bones, meat
or skin) hangs over or extends beyond the
Gear Wheels. Cut off excess and tie it down
with string as necessary. Only turkeys up
to 15 lbs. in the full-sized models. Keep
center cavity clear so heat can enter while
it cooks.
Roast
Standing Rib Roasts should always be loaded with the bones on the left side opposite
from the small turning gear on the right side and the heavier meat on the right side.
Also put the Spit Rods through meat between the bones.
Rib Bones Always to the Left and Parallel to
the Spit Rods! - Up to 8 lb. Roasts Only
When loading a rib roast start through
the fat, meaty end and move the Spit
Rods between (or on top of) the bones.
Keep the meat evenly distributed on the
Spit Rods. It may take a couple of tries
to not run into a bone.
If any food scrapes or hangs up, stop immediately. Trim with scissors and reload the
Spit Rods so that nothing touches the top, bottom, sides or Heating Element.

The Rotisserie starts about 5 seconds after the Timer is set.
Shuts off the Rotisserie
Turn Rotisserie Spit to Desired Position: If you hold
down after turning off
the Rotisserie, you can slowly turn the spit to any position you want. Let go and it stops
turning. This feature allows you to position a filled Basket for searing (like steaks) or
position the food for easier unloading.
Carving Platform
After your roast, leg of lamb, or ham is done,
you can place the Carving Platform under
the Gear Wheel to hold the Spit rod assembly
in a vertical position while you carve the meat.
And, if you want the roast browned further, you
can put the roast back in the Rotisserie - even
after you’ve carved some off.
Spit Rod Spacer (6000 Series only)
The Spit Rod Spacer keeps your Spit Rods from
spreading out as you load heavy food. This is
very helpful when loading 2-3 chickens or large
roasts. Remove the Spacer before cooking.
One end of this tool is a wrench for tightening
the small screws that hold each rod - if they
become loose.
IMPORTANT: The times and temperatures given in this booklet are only a guide
for your reference. Times can vary due to differences in meat shape, size, fat content,
presence of bone, and electrical outlets. Use a cooking thermometer inserted into
the center of the thickest portion of the meat to determine internal temperature and
doneness. Remember to use Position B for small foods.

Estimated Time and Temperature Chart
The times and temperatures given in this booklet are only a guide for your reference and are based on foods
at room temperature (not cold foods). Times can vary due to differences in meat shape, size, and the amount
of fat and bone. Also times can vary depending on the electricity in your home – and it can even vary when
plugged into different electrical outlets. The most accurate method of determining if your food is done is using
a thermometer inserted into the center of the thickest portion of the meat. Note: If poultry exceeds 180º
(internal temperature) your poultry will become drier and less juicy. Remember to use Position B for small foods.

oil, etc. Be creative, use the flavored marinating liquids of your choice.
Plunger
Locking Tip

hidden inside the Plunger.
2) Load Plunger into Cylinder.
Note: Keep a couple of drops of

How to Load Injector
Important Safeguards
For Liquid: Draw back Plunger to pull
liquids into the Cylinder section.
Keep all parts clean. Use warm water to
clean. Mild bleach can be added to help
reduce bacteria too. To clean a clogged
needle, soak and use a cotton swab
or fine brush.
Look inside Cylinder
section to see that
liquid has filled up
to desired amount.
Discard used marinade. It can carry
bacteria. Never use leftover marinade on
cooked meat or poultry after the marinade
has had contact with uncooked meat
or poultry. Should your needle stop or
clog when using, you will need to make a
finer marinade. Use the blender to make
smaller particles.
If you inject against bone, it will seem
stuck. Move the needle to one side and
continue.
If you let the meat or poultry sit to marinate, refrigerate until ready to cook the
food.

Important Safeguards
While inserting this Solid Flavor Injector
into meat, poultry, or any other food,
be careful not to push Injector into your

Wash Injector thoroughly with soap and
water after each use. Meat and poultry
residue is unhealthy and can cause the
expanding Tip to crack or break.
If the Injector seems too large for your
hand, fill the Expanding Tip only ½ or ¾ full
(then the plunger is
less extended and will
fit smaller hands).
Important: Please
don’t leave the Insert
Rod in the Expanding Tip. It can stretch.
After each use, pull plunger all the way
back and then retract the Insert Rod
from the Expanding Tip by tapping the
point down gently onto a smooth, hard

CAUTIONS
Never use any aerosol sprays of any kind inside the unit.
Never cook foods larger than recommended in the booklet for your Rotisserie.
Grease Flicker? Foods with high fat content can produce a small flicker of flame
as fat spatters off the Heating Element. This is normal. However, if you see smoke
or fire, turn off and unplug the machine and let it cool off. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR
until it has cooled down. NEVER PUT WATER IN THE ROTISSERIE - Water and fat
or oil don’t mix. After it has cooled, check to see if food touched, or hung up on the
Heating Element.
Keep out of reach of children.
DO NOT MOVE rotisserie when it is hot or loaded with food.
Always keep at least 8” (inch) clearance all around the rotisserie from walls,
cabinets and other objects when in use to prevent heat damage.
Do not use under cabinets.
Do not put charcoal briquettes, hickory chips or anything else in the machine
that is not authorized by Ronco Holdings, Inc.
Rotisserie is HOT!
Glass Door, top, back and sides of the Rotisserie, as well as the Dual Heating Tray,
Drip Tray, Non-stick Grate Cover, Heat Shield and Heating Element all get very
hot during use and retain heat after use – even when Glass Door is positioned
underneath the unit. Always use adequate oven mitts or gloves when handling
these hot surfaces and when checking hot foods.

Helpful Hints
Use a strip of aluminum foil on your
counter top under the front door opening
to collect any grease or moisture from
a roast beef or a whole turkey during
cooking.
Burnt Edges on Food? You can put a
small strip of aluminum foil on the top
and bottom edges inside the Basket to
prevent burnt edges as it cooks.
Wrap fish with seasonings and marinade in aluminum foil (triple-fold the
edges) and put tightly in the Basket for
a delicious and easy meal!
Be sure wings are all secure inside the
Basket with no parts hanging out.
Seasonings and spices should be
sprinkled on or rubbed into the food
before it goes into the Rotisserie.
Once the food is rotating, watch it
to be sure nothing is touching the
Heating Element as it goes around.
Have your food at room temperature
when it goes in. Not chilled. Wash food
in warm water inside and out. DO NOT
LEAVE OUT AT ROOM TEMPERATURE MORE
THAN 1 HOUR.
You can use a small strip of aluminum
foil inside the Basket on the top and
bottom edges (the edges that rotate near
the Heating Element) to keep the tips of
the wings from burning.
Place foil inside on top
and bottom edges
It is not necessary to preheat the
Rotisserie.
Never cook foods larger than
recommended in the booklet for
your Rotisserie.
Avoid burning – Baste with BBQ
sauce only during the last 5 minutes.
It’s tasty and delicious.

We have provided you the dimensions of
the above to help you also in figuring out
the size of the turkey/chicken/roast to use.
The baskets are designed so that they
will not touch either the Heat Element or
the Door when in rotation. So, the outer
contour of the potential bird or meat cut
should not exceed the rectangle made by
the boundary of your basket.
For example, the maximum “weight” of
a bird (chicken or turkey) to grill with
the 5000 series is 15 lbs. However, you
need to be mindful of the “volume” as
well. Please note that the length of the
chicken should not exceed 9.50” (which
represents the distance between the gear
wheels) while the width to be at 9.25” or
less (which represents the depth allowed
to occupy without having the chicken
touching the heat element on the back
wall or the glass door at the front during
rotation.)
NOTE: The model number is located on
the back of your Showtime® Rotisserie.

6 Easy Steps to Great Rotisserie Chicken
1. Wash the chicken with warm water
(so the food is not cold when it goes in the
Rotisserie) and remove any parts from the
cavity (giblets, etc). Cut away excess fat
and skin so hot air can get into the cavity.
Tie the wings and legs down. Use one or
two of the Elastic Food Ties (if they are too
big for your chicken, knot them smaller and
cut off the excess). See page 10 for more
details.
2.
Place the chicken on the Spit Rods
breast first - be sure it’s centered and the
weight is evenly distributed. Be careful to
keep your hands clear of the sharp rod tips
when loading food vertically or horizontally.
After loading the food on the Spit Rods, put
the other Gear Wheel on.

Showtime ® Rotisserie
3.
Place the loaded Spit Rod Assembly
in the Rest area just inside the Rotisserie.
Then slide it on back to the cooking
position. Pull the Glass Door up.
4.
Set the 3-Way Function to Normal
Rotation. Set the Timer for 15 minutes per
pound for a chicken. Example: 4 lbs. = 1
hour. Note: Use the total weight- which
includes giblets that’s printed on your
chicken package. If your package does not
include giblets, etc., then add a 1/4 pound
to the actual weight of your chicken to
figure the cooking time.
Problem? If a chicken wing comes free or any part touches the Heating Element
or bottom grate during cooking, simply turn the Timer to OFF. Let it cool a bit.
Please be careful – both the food and the Rotisserie get hot. Make any adjustments
or re-tie your chicken. Then reset the Timer.
5.
To enjoy the best flavor and taste, serve
your chicken immediately. If you are not
ready to serve it right away, however, set
the 3-Way Function to No Heat Rotation
to keep the juices evenly distributed
throughout the chicken.
6. To Serve: When chicken is done, care-
fully slide the Glass Door under the unit.
Use the Oven Gloves and gently but quickly
lift the chicken and Spit Rod Assembly out
while supporting the chicken. A bowl under
the chicken helps make it easier to remove.
Take off the removable Gear Wheel, slide
out the Spit Rods and serve.
Caution: The parts get really hot!
