Easy to use
from Thunder Bay
I received my Ronco rotisserie that I purchased as a SS last week and I used it for the first time yesterday. I did two chickens. I was leary to buy it at first because of all the complaints about the noisiness and clicking as the wheels rotated. I didn't notice any of those problems and I wonder if the noise in those ones occurred because the food wasn't balanced properly. I had another rotisserie (different make) in the past and it was much more difficult to situate the food on the prongs properly. This one is very easy. My old one was hard to clean and this one is very easy to clean, and most importantly, the chicken tasted wonderful. I love the EZ store feature as I live in a condo and don't have a large kitchen. I would certainly recommend this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We bought the rotisserie with reserved enthusiasm but wow, our first chicken was unbelievably perfect. The flavor was better than any roadhouse or famous chicken rotisserie restaurants. We then thought clean up would be a nightmare. Again, pleasantly surprised. Clean up was a snap. From putting it together, to the perfect and exceptional cooking results, to the clean up, 10 out of 10! So glad we bought it.Some purchasers commented on the noise. It is not that loud. Love watching the rotisserie too. The oven light is a nice touch. Thanks TSC!
Makes a lot of noise!!!

I also have the original large Ronco rotisserie which is by far a much more reliable unit. I like the compact size of the newer model but something tells me it will wear out or break before long. I should have sent it back to TSC.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Issues with Ronco EZ-store
I saw a review by Cathy, and she is absolutely correct. It IS very noisy - possibly since the gears do not run freely. I too get the snap since the gear wheels need to re-align with each revolution. I also found that a "15-pound turkey" (as advertised) will not fit. An 11 lb. turkey will not fit on the "Spit Rods" while allowing both gear wheels to connect - it has to be a smaller bird (or cut off the legs).

Great product to have
I love this easy-store Rotisserie from Ronco. Everything can be un-assembly in a second. After cooking, deep everything into the sink and it is very easy to clean(non-stick). The food taste good, juicy and no fat.I like the two safety features. Good idea.

update from Dec 12 review
from Havelock, Ontario
I initially loved this appliance BUT one of the gear wheels was warped causing it to snap back over into position every revolution. This is in addition to the problem of the loud noise the machine makes while running. It didn't cook in the time it should have and a chicken and a roast I tried, needed an extra 45 min to be done when checked by thermometer. I have gone to the company's site and ordered one of their full sized machines which runs quietly, as remembered from b4.

I too made the chicken and my son raved on how juicy it was. We both couldn't believe how juicy it turned out. My only complaint would also be the noise level. It's not always constant. It comes and goes, but when it grinds, you definitely hear it.

love it but...
I had a Ronco full sized rotissere for years and wore it out. Does anyone else find this one almost too noisy to keep? It does a great job but what a grinding racket!!

Ordered this on the weekend, received it within 4 days. Made a whole chicken using a copycat marinade and it turned out great! The family raved how juicy the chicken was! Clean up was a breeze as most detachable parts are dishwasher safe! I can't wait to try more recipes.
I would buy this ronco again
Chicken is the best . The size is great,only cleaning it is a bit of a chore . They say its dishwaher proof .not so .I had to return 1st one for exchange as it rusted inside Now I wash by hand .
