Rotisserie saves time and cooks meat in a healthier way. The standard
sized Ronco Rotisserie oven can cook 9 quarter-pound hamburgers
simultaneously and cook a 15 pound turkey in about 3 hours shaving off
30 minutes to an hour of roasting time. Note that cooking times are
relayed in the instruction book that’s included with the oven.
You get to eat meat with less fat because the meat isn’t sitting
in a pan of fat while roasting. Instead, the meat rotates on a spit rod
that’s set in the middle of the Rotisserie and unwanted fat
drains to a tray at the bottom of the oven.
