4000 Series Rotisserie

The Original Showtime® Rotisserie.

Enjoy perfectly slow-roasted meats any day of the week with this countertop rotisserie oven. The Ronco 4000 Rotisserie cooks large cuts of meat such as chicken, turkey, prime rib, pork roast and lamb incredibly easily with the precision-rotating spit. And because the meat rotates, it's constantly basting itself while allowing excess fat and grease to drip away. But wait...there's more!™ This iconic Showtime Rotisserie includes a rotisserie basket that lets you enjoy a variety of foods such as fish, vegetables, hamburgers and sausages. Use it once and you'll know why Good Housekeeping™ Magazine gave it 9 stars out of 10.

  • Meat is naturally basted as it rotates, locking in the juices and flavor

  • Excess fat melts away into the drip tray

  • Cook large cuts of meat to assist with healthy meal planning... Even up to a 15lb turkey!

  • Removable parts and accessories are dishwasher safe

  • Faster than a conventional oven and uses about 1/3 the electricity

Outstanding UnitReview by Willy
We have also had the Original for 20 years and the bottom plastic had broken and been taped a few times. The glass front now does not have the groove to stay in place. My wife just came across a newer version in a Thrift Store and quickly snatched it up. It had hardly been used. One of my complains of the Original was the squeaking as it rotated. The newer one has bushings that eliminate the squeak. Great idea.
We fully expect to get another 20 years from this one. Love the way it cooks chicken and Prime Rib is amazing in it.

We have used (and LOVED) our Showtime "set it and forget it" for well ver 20 years. It has not failed us yet. We only use it twice a year (Christmas and New Years) but really could use it is just a matter of space that keeps us from doing space for permanancy on the counter. Christmas we do a to die for seasoned pork roast that has never had a bad review and New Year's we do a standing rib roast. YUM. Lately our little beauty has started squeaking a bit but other than that still works well. We think we may buy another of the original ones to have as a back up..."just in case".....the price is right! (Posted on 1/6/2018)

Generational Loyalty,Health and HappinessReview by Desertflower
I still have my original Ron Popeil Rotisserie from 20+ years ago!! My daughter now has her own family and at Thanksgiving and Christmas the baton has passed to her to make the Prime Rib Roast for the festive dinner. She drives to my house with her marinated treasure to put into my Ron Popeil - set and forget it - magic rotisserie. I never thought my 33 year old would want her very own Ron Popeil but she said, "Oh mom I wish I had a Ron Popeil, I bet they don't make it anymore ... " Well, her birthday is January 9th and guess what I just ordered for her 34th birthday??? Her vary own retro Ron Popeil!! I know that she will be enjoying healthful meals with her new little family for so many years to come -- that even when I am gone --- she'll have happy memories of the chicken and roasts we made together. Each time she uses her rotisserie she will think of me and the happy times we shared cooking for the family with the Ron Popeil "set and forget it" bestest ever rotisserie in the whole wide world!! Thank you for not discontinuing the original model - so nostalgic ... Thank you, Hugs! (Posted on 1/3/2018)
Best gadget I own!Review by Roadgoddess
I owned my original rotisserie for 20+ years before needing to replace it. The food that came out of that machine was outstanding. I was teased for making this purchase from TV but that didn’t last long once people tasted how wonderful everything I made came out.

I especially love it for roasts and chicken. I brine my chicken in a mixture of kosher salt, honey,garlic, black pepper and Bay leaves for eight hours prior to cooking. It always comes out absolutely perfect, so much better than grocery store versions. The skin is golden brown and crisp, We fight for the skin because is is so delicious.

It’s also great that I don’t need to heat up the house or oven to cook a meal. I now have several friends that have bought them after seeing mine.

When I needed to replace my original I thought I would see what was in the stores and was so disappointed. Many have such small insides you would be hard pressed to cook a medium sized chicken. I love the fact that I can fit a large bird in mine no problem.

It’s great to see how many reviews are people like me that have had them for 20+ years and still love them, that shows they stand the test of time. Just buy one! I would love to purchase one of the new low profile versions but I think it will be awhile based on how long my old one lasted! (Posted on 12/31/2017)

Best little oven in TexasReview by Judes82
This has been one of my favorite appliances ever. Mine lasted 20+ years and has never disappointed. I’m back to purchase a new one now that my original has finally seen better days. If your looking for a fail proof gadget to impress dinner guests, order one. I promise you won’t regret it. (Posted on 11/8/2017)

You Won't Be Disappointed!Review by Robert
I've had one for over 15 years.
IF it goes out I would buy another.
We've usd it at least once a week for just about everything. We purchased our with all the gadgets. Injector, Basket, etc.
Thanks for such a great product!!! (Posted on 7/13/2017)
GREAT!Review by Cookndrive
Wonderful product. I use it winter inside and summer on the patio. Great results every time!! (Posted on 7/4/2017)
Best machine everReview by Chris
You see this you have to get it. I have had mine now for almost 20 years. I have done everything. You know how pork chops are usually tough not with this. Best turkey chicken steaks fish trout etc. Burgers are the only drawback. Only due to shrinkage. The flavour permeates through the meat. Even without the flavour injector. (Posted on 7/2/2017)
Wonderful OvenReview by HPGirl
Mine was passed down from my Dad who could never resist a good gadget but this oven is so much more! it cooks the best roasted chicken. Thanks for having the food ties and other accessories so I can keep this going, yummy! (Posted on 4/2/2017)
Love the RotisserieReview by Jerry
I won the Ronco Showtime 4000 a few years ago and love it. We use it quite often when it's too hot to cook in oven or when gas grill out of propane. I have cooked chicken, pork, steaks and a 15lb turkey on mine ... although I used the high side of recommended time/lbs. in book was a little well done but no complaints. Using the rotisserie made me purchase the Ready Gill, just received it and will review it here and Ronco's Facebook. (Posted on 1/22/2017)
ExcellentReview by JeaniePie5
I bought the first generation Ronco "Set it and Forget IT" 17 years ago while on bed rest during my last pregnancy. I watch that infomercial over and over. We have used it and still use it to this day. A great machine. It does everything the infomercial told me it would. (Posted on 1/16/2017)
Great Machine Ron has always designed great itemsReview by IBOCSX
I have owned the 5000 model with the digital timer since Ron introduced it.
It has worked flawlessly for many years.
I on Thanksgiving this year 2016 was too late to get a turkey so I got a 8 pound chicken instead. I washed it with water and dried it. I then put it on the rotator section and rubbed butter, sea salt and ground black pepper on the outside. I put some butter and salt and pepper inside the cavity.
Then I started the unit and warmed it a bit and then put the chicken inside.
After a short period of time I set the timer to 120 minutes and used a silicone brush with the door open to cover the chicken with both the butter and drippings rolling on the skin. I then used a little oil mixed with sea salt and pepper and injected into the chicken at about the 15 minute time.
That was all I needed to do.
Then when the timer stopped I checked the temperature and it was 180 degrees right on the money.
I wrapped it up in foil and put it in a Trader Joes bag and drove from Jersey City, NJ to the Bronx, NY.
Traffic was horrible and took about 1 1/2 hours to get there. I was still hot about 170 degrees.
We feed 7 people it was so tender and juicy.
I was going to save some for my cat he loves chicken but my Filipino relatives (wife's side) would not give me back the chicken. My cat is heart broken cause he smelled it cooking. LOL
Guess what they want me to make for Christmas?????
Now I am English/ Irish decent so go figure.
Now I just ordered the black Ronco ready Grill and got 2 for $59.99 plus I ordered the extra basket and steamer on sale for each (2).
They came in 2 days and maybe tonight we will try one of them.
Lost your manual hey I downloaded a extra copy on this site PDF. I have original but if you lose or ruin yours they are here.

Lastly Hey RONCO pleas put the accessories on sale for the Showtime Rotisserie half price like the Ready Grill I never ordered those when I bought mine. In fact I just purchased one from someone same model today. For my summer home. I need the steamer warmer top. LOL

I have had the set it and forget it for 15-20 years and it is still running strong.
I love this product. It is used many times a week and never fails to make a delicious meal. From chicken and pork roast to steak and fish everything comes out perfect and juicy. Sears to perfection and then all you have to do is reset the timer flip a switch and bingo best meal of the day. I can't say enough great things about this product. I LOVE IT!

Top notch!Review by Cassandra
This product will change the way you cook. I've rosted turkey, prime rib, chicken and steaks easily and perfectly. I can't do family meals without mine. (Posted on 11/7/2016)
I Love This Rotisserie!!!!Review by BlackAngelPlayah
I bought one of these rotisseries years ago and LOVED it. I've cooked countless chickens, roasts, and even a turkey in it and everything comes out juicy and delicious. I loved the basket for things like leg quarters and wings, though you can cook probably anything that will fit. I am seriously thinking about purchasing a new one. (Posted on 10/12/2016)
