    I keep seeing the infomercial for the Showtime Rotisserie Model 3000-T cooking system, but am wondering if this is any good?

    Get it, or forget it? [​IMG]

    I'd like to know, too.

    Also, I see that there's a George Foreman Rotisserie as well. Are any of these good?

    General consensus is that it's an excellent cooking product that needs constant supervision b/c of excessive heat. In addition, the second downside is that it's very difficult to clean. Otherwise, a worthy appliance.

    I bought a few from Amazon about 1.5 years ago for $40/each on sale and gave them away as gifts.

    Don is 100% correct. I got one as a gift and used it once--the chicken came out great, but no better than a chicken you could buy at Boston Market. And the cleanup was a nightmare.

    Everything I read about the Showtime Rotisserie is positive, but with rotisserie chickens selling in your local supermarket for only $5-$6 each, why go to the trouble and clean up of cooking it yourself. Picking up a rotisserie chicken for dinner on the way home can't be beat.

    We have a Showtime , don't know the model # but it has a digital timer . We use it about twice a week and I can't remember the last time we had a whole chicken it it. We do roasts , steak , steak tips , chicken breast ,burgers, fish, etc. We just got ours last January and cleaning hasn't been that time consuming for us , I was expecting a hard time but it isn't.

    Definitely don't forget it if you get it lest you burn your house down.
