Farberware OPEN HEARTH ROTISSERIE BROILER GRILL MANUAL FREE!


FREE Manuals for Farberware Open Hearth Rotisserie Broiler Grill HERE!:  At one time I needed to get a copy of the manual for my Farberware Open Hearth Rotisserie Broiler Grill. I could not find one anywhere EXCEPT for people selling copies on EBay. This really bugged me, to make things worse the jerks on EBAY wanted like $10.00 and up for the thing. Well I eventually found one at a second hand store and made a electronic copy of it. Selling this manual is just wrong… if you want a copy here it is for free

UPDATE: I recently found another Farberware Open Hearth Rotisserie Broiler Grill bad news is that although the motor work, its not working well; Good news is it came with another manual for me to share with you.  I was able to get additional manuals as well!  I’ve just added three more manuals and an instruction sheet. If you would like to be updated when I add more manuals leave a comment and I will send you a message each time I add another manual.

I’ve place softcopy’s, adobe pdf ‘s of the manual’s at this location here. Just click on the picture or link under the picture of the manual you would like to download it;

  1. Tracy says:

    Thank you so much for this info. My mom had one up in storage for years and I just brought it down today to roast a chicken. Everything was there-except the manual. When I saw how much people were charging, I was shocked! Why would anyone charge for a manual? Great job and thanks again for taking the time to scan the pages.

    • usabaker says:

      You are more then welcome glad I could help…

      • TraceeT says:

        Bill, Over a year later, and you are still “paying it forward”. Thanking your kind heart for taking the time and energy to post these user manuals for all to use for free. The world needs more “helper souls” like you who do things simply for the joy of being helpful. I will redouble my efforts to do the same in my life…Thanks again!

  2. Jim says:

    Thank you so much for posting the Manual

  3. Gary says:

    Bless your heart, and thank you for this manual. I adopted the grill a few weeks ago as we helped my Mom clean out some cabinets of unused stuff. I remember it from my youth but hadn’t seen it for a few decades. I cooked a 3# gyro loaf on it last night.

  4. karen f. says:

    Thank you SO much for posting this manual for free.
    My mom has lent me her Farberware rotisserie, (in pristine condition) and we could not locate the manual.
    She used this back in the 1960′s and 1970′s to make great suppers for a family of 6, and sometimes for more people than that–with company included.
    This brings back many memories, and hopefully I can replicate some of the delicious meals we had many years ago.
    Never feel that you are losing out by sharing for free. I try to do this as well, and it is SO refreshing to see someone who is not merely interested in monetary gain.
    Thank you again.

  5. Mike says:

    What a lifesaver! Needed for Thanksgiving (tomorrow!).
    Many thanks and have a great holiday season.

  6. jk says:

    Thank you so much for doing this. So things are meant to be shared, and I will pay it forward, too.

  7. Dave says:

    Thanks a lot for the manual. It’s always nice when people share.

    • Normando says:

      Thanks so much. Have had mine since the 60′s and use it every Christmas Eve. The Grandkids like it better than the gas grill. Couldn’t remember if grate was “up” or “down”. Thanks again.

  8. Felicia says:

    I would also like to thank you for sharing Bill. We should start a free manual site.

    Thanks again.

  9. Jill and Hugh says:

    We found one at an estate sale…no manual. Thanks so much for “paying it forward!”

  10. Carole says:

    Thank you for posting this for free. My mother recently passed away and I found the Farberware rotisserie when cleaning out her things. Each piece was carefully wrapped in newspaper from 1986. I will think of her when I use it and of your thoughtfulness in sharing with others.

  11. Henry says:

    Thank you for posting the manual. Our neighbors parents are loaning us their rotisserie to cook a prime rib. They told us a wonderful story about how they bought one when they were just starting out and what an extravagance it was. They said it was well worth it and it lasted many, many years. Now, whenever they find a nice one for sale, they buy them as gifts for family and friends. They have introduced quite a few people to the Farberware Open Hearth. Now they will be able to include a manual to their new converts. Thanks again.

  12. MH says:

    Thank you for posting this manual for free. May God Bless You for your kindness.

  13. Gerald says:

    It was very nice to find this Farberware Broiler manual for FREE. I share the providers outrage at being charged $10 for this booklet and really appreciate the effort to post it for everyone to use gratis. My old broiler has been used three or four times each month since 1969. I had to epoxy the plastic or bakelite side support (legs) back together about 20 years ago after I dropped the grill. It is too COLD up here in Alaska to grill outside and my faithful little electric cooker does a great job. We are big fans.

  14. Faye says:

    Thank you ever so much. We are passing on our Farberware broiler/rotesserie to our daughter and couldn’t find the manual. Many good memories!

  15. P8ntldy says:

    We received the Farberware Open Hearth Rotisserie as a wedding gift in 1972 and have LOVED it over the years!! It still works great! Chicken on the rotisserie is fabulous! Everything cooked on that grill is wonderful!

    Unfortunately, my manual has disintegrated through the years. So, was looking for a new one and refused to pay the $10 (or on Amazon – some sellers wanted close to $25). I really only wanted the broiling chart page…. so I contacted Farberware – with no results.

    I just found your post and can’t THANK YOU enough!

    Actually, our son & daughter in law just bought an old victorian home from 1893 and there was a Open Hearth Rotisserie left for them. They’ll be really glad to have a manual now. Our son has enjoyed many meals cooked on ours over the years.

    Can’s believe that this product that still going strong for over 37 years!
    THANK YOU again for scanning and posting this PDF file!

  16. Kimberly in So Cal says:

    Thanks so much for posting this ~ it is truly ridiculous for someone to charge $10 for a download and at times more for an original copy on ebay. I just picked up and Open Hearth Electric Broiler/Rotisserie at at thrift store Sunday and can hardly wait to put it to use, which I couldn’t have done without your free copy of the manual.

  17. jk says:

    Bill,
    I can’t thank you enough for posting the free download of the Farberware Open Hearth Rotisserie/Broiler Manual. I had my Open Hearth Rotisserie and manual as a single in the 60′s and when I got married in 1972, I don’t know what happened to them. I did replace the rotisserie /grill but to my surprise, the prices for the manual were outrageous. You were very kind and generous to do this. There are not enough people like yourself who would do this. I am very grateful for what you have done.

  18. k9drum says:

    I am the person you have been criticizing about charging $10 for manual downloads. I created the downloads of all the manuals at [his web-site], which also provides important model and parts information. Back in the old days … I had to find, purchase, scan and convert all the manuals. They were hard to find, and very expensive. Not even Farberware had them. Creating [his web-site], was a combination of therapy, education, and distraction. It was either that – or get a dog. I am a single mother on Social Security Disability, and trying to put my only son through college. It used to help with books. I have been shamed into defeat and surrender. Crushed again by the USA. You win! I was wrong.

    • usabaker says:

      I don’t know who you are or what your deal is and as harsh as this may sound, I don’t care. EVERYONE has one problem or another and EVERYONE faces challenges. Honestly there were over 6 people selling the manual and I doubt my small post “singled” you out. I actually think you are a troll, whose not really the owner of that site and just posted to get a reaction from me (congrats you did,) but on the off chance you are; then maybe you should take this as a lesson, if you are reasonable about what you charge you would make more in volume rather then really SOCKET to people. I would have paid $2.00 or $3.00 bucks for something YOU DID NOT AUTHOR and I’m sure everyone here would have. You took the vampire road, Its all about supply and demand right?. I’m not sorry one single bit. I still like the price I offer it to people FREE and you should not worry you still offer way more manuals than I have (yet.) If you are REALLY struggling (since the “old days” maybe your son should get a job and put himself though school rather than make his mother suffer or better yet have him join the service and serve his country he would get the GI bill and would get paid to go to school and could send his money home to care for you. Then you wouldn’t suffer so much.

      • k9drum says:

        As if the ebay goons taking advantage of ebay’s digital ban a few years ago (including some who buy downloads from me and then sell printed copies on ebay the next day) weren’t enough of a challenge – your meanness has virtually destroyed my website. I have spent hundreds of hours and hundreds of dollars to provide this service to fellow “Open Hearth” fans — for several years. I even made my own background. I do not blog. Since your meanness has already destroyed my website, I will put a (small) link to your FREE second-rate, second-edition manual on my site for all you cheap-skate bloggers. There is only one manual that serious “Open Hearth” fans want – and your FREE one is not it. Your version is best combined with the ORIGINAL 1960’s “A” version. All other versions are rarely purchased. The REAL version has the prime rib and turkey. Yours just has the gravy.

      • usabaker says:

        ” virtually destroyed my website”
        “I will put a (small) link to your FREE second-rate, second-edition manual on my site for all you cheap-skate bloggers. There is only one manual that serious “Open Hearth” fans want – and your FREE one is not it.”

        You seem to be contradicting yourself, on one hand you say I “destroyed” your website on the other hand you say the manual I am giving away free is not the one people want anyhow. So how is it that if the manual I have is a “second-rate, second-edition manual” how am I destroying your website?

        OHhhhh… I get it this is your attempt at trying to get people to visit your site, the same reason you put a link to your site twice in the prior post. SO the real story is not that I have destroyed your site but that you are using my blog to advertise your site. Shameless! Gess Louise, stop your whining already. BTW: I’ll be posting more manuals in the future.

        ” I even made my own background. ” Wow maybe you should get a work at home job as a graphic artist.

  19. Gary says:

    k9drum – I think your anger is misdirected. Bill here did not “ruin your website”. He provided a service, just like you, only he didn’t charge anybody for it.
    Sounds like you need to diversify if your business model is so fragile that a simple blog post can crash it.
    Bill, thanks again for the manual.
    Regards, Gary

    • Steve in Wilmer, Alabama says:

      Yes! Yes! Yes! Mr. usabaker, I whole heartedly appreciate what you have done as far as making the manuals available I cannot express enough gratitude, so please accept
      this simple “Thank You” as being from the heart.
      I agree with your sentiments directed at Ms. k9drum, she seems to have a case of “poor me”. I too am on S.S Disability and I too have other ways of garnering income, often with competition. That’s life, competition, survival of the fittest. Whining won’t accomplish anything except animosity amongst the people you subject to your whining. Yes, her son should pull his own weight, I did, 6 yrs active duty military, 1972 – 1978. I’m now 60 and still doing the best I can with what I’ve got.
      Gary, you also make a very valid point.

      BTW, I have drug mine around from New York to CT all the way to AL since 1978.

        Thank you, Thank you!!! Got it in my head to use my Farberware Open Rotisserie – which I received as a gift in 1975!!! We moved a few years ago and I couldn’t find my manual – and it’s been awhile since I used the machine. I was shocked to see the charge to get a manual! I have downloaded mauals from companies many times and never was there a charge. Thank you again – and my family thank you for when I make the best rotisserie chicken on Father’s Day!!!

    Thank you so much for posting this manual!!!! A neighbor passed away and his sister was just giving away things. I didnt know what it could be used for but I wanted it. After looking at the previous post, I can tell that it has been around for a looooooooooong time and it can make your life easier when you have a big family or lots of dinners! THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU! KEEP DOING GOOD AND DONT FEED INTO NEGATIVITY!!!! HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!

  23. Andrew says:

    Thanks for the manuals. My friend was moving and knew that I was interested in a rotisserie and he stopped over yesterday and said I could have his Farberware open hearth broiler. It had no manuals and I found your site, thanks and I learned from all the comments how nice these things really are. Wow, I guess I got a really good gift!
    Thanks again!

  24. deborah long says:

    I let my daughter use it to roast a turkey and she was very upset, because it was still pink inside and had been cooking for 6 plus hours for a 12 lb. turkey. then she told me that when the juices would drip on to the coil, it would catch on fire. I told her i never had that problem and if she did not want it, to bring it back and they did. so now i am taking out my turkey and going to test it out. wish me luck. i love it and always have.

    • usabaker says:

      The problem I found with turkey is that when the Farberware Open Rotisserie was made turkey were less meaty. The trukeys from the market to day have much larger breasts, amoung other things, and will cook longer then the book say. I’ll bet that she kept the grating in as well. Make sure you removed the grill grating so you can get the turkey closer to the heating element. Not sure why she would get fire, I cook pork all the time and don’t have that issue…. intresting…. Good luck though I hope you can figure it out.

    • deborah long says:

      well, now i have to order a bar thingy that holds up the grill part. i wanted to fix turkey this weekend but now i have to wait and fix it in the old oven. oh well. i will order it anyways. miss using my awesome rotisserie. its fab u lous.

  25. Thank you for taking the time to pdf these manuals/booklets. I got my Open Hearth from my mom after seeing my sister use hers to roast a chicken. I was going to take it to the thrift store because I never used the darn thing, but decided to give it try. I may just hang on to it and try some of the recipes. I’m roasting a chicken as I write this!

    Thank you for posting this manual. I was making great food on the Farberware Open Rotisserie but now I believe it will be much better. I had my chicken much higher than what the manual stated. Gonna try it the right way this time and I can’t wait to try it

  29. Elaine says:

    Hello, which model Rotisserie would you recommend I search for? Are they all good? (Farberware, of course). -Elaine

  30. Elaine says:

    Hi again, just saw lots of different models on Ebay and would love some advice on buying. Need to know if I should buy vintage or the ones that look newer. Any info would be helpful. I am excited to buy one of these but need to know from the experts here what to look out for. Many Thanks, Elaine R.

    • usabaker says:

      Hi Elaine,
      All of the models you are seeing have varying degrees of options and ‘improvements’. At the basic level all of them do the same thing. The ‘newer’ models are a little longer and have improved motors. Because of their age, all of them are old; I would try and get something as new as possible just because it will last longer. I own thee of those the one I use the most is the model 455.

  31. lisa says:

    Thank you Elaine!!! You are an Angel. I found one today on our share table in our mobile home park but it had no manual. I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful you are. Thanks again. lisa

  32. jeff medders says:

    Thanks so much for the manual! One more favor… I am missing the arms that hold the spit. Could you measure yours and tell me the dimensions? I have the materials to build them but I would rather not have to guess at the height and depth of the little hooks. sincerely, Jeff@salinegateway.org

  33. Eileen Gillis says:

    Bless your heart. My Mom passed away last month at the age of 92.. My youngest adult son was remembering the the many times that he and his grandma made wonderful hamburgers on her open hearth broiler. That was many years ago. Mom had her own special method of broiling the hamburgers, putting a thick slice of onion on the burger and then toasting the bun and assembling the perfect burger. Yes, that made me find a broiler rotisserie unit so that we may continue this tradition and teach our grandchildren the special way their great grandma made her burgers…………..Looking forward to much fun and remembering Mom

  34. Eileen Gillis says:

    Thank you very much for posting these manuals free to me. I truly appreciate it.

    We should all pay it forward daily.

    Just wanted to thank you for posting these manuals. Bought a Series 435 that was never used at a thrift store for $8.00 but it didn’t have a manual with it. I can not find anything out about my model number but these books will do the trick. Thanks again. – Nancy

  37. Dane says:

    The official Farberware site also sells the manuals and has one that has all 7 manuals in one for 11.95. You can also order parts. See it here at: Ste-Link-Deleted

    • usabaker says:

      Hi Dane, You are right in your correction. THAT IS NOT the Farberware official site. Farberware not longer supports these. The reason she is selling them all for 12.00 is because of my blog, she use to sell EACH manual for 9.00. She even came to my blog and sent me email insulting me and spewing all kinds of garbage. Her link is not welcome on my blog as she is a useless twit. I have ALL the manuals that have found at 2nd hand stores and from people how shared theirs with me. I’ve just not posted them all yet, But I will now soon. people should NOT have to pay for these manuals, that person is not the author and should not profit off other peoples work.

  38. Dane says:

    Sorry! After looking at the site more closely, it is not the official Farberware site, but it still looks like a good resource.

    • usabaker says:

      As I said the person who runs that site is a rotten person and a snake. So her link will NEVER be posted on my blog. just scroll to the bottom to see just some of the crap she wrote, maybe I should post her email messages as well.

  39. jason says:

    i thank you so much. i just bought a 455a with Shish Kebab rack for $25. but i found out when i went to use it for the first time they had the wrong coard with it for the heating element. i found the one for sale for 4.99. my mom uses hers every time i come home for pork rost cant wait to use mine.
    thank you for your info.

  40. Eric Rairdon says:

    Thank you Bill for your work making this available to everyone. We have been buying these for several years now…both for ourselves and the kids. The best place we have found is Goodwill Stores here in the greater Portland and Seattle area. Often parts are missing but by buying several we wind up with spare parts. Heating elements and motors,etc. Prices run $12 to $20. Some units are “like new”. I suspect it was given as a wedding present and then put up on the self and forgotten. Tip: Disassemble motors and remove the old grease. Replace with Lubriplate white grease. These are well designed motors and rarely wear out. Sometimes at Goodwill, the motors will end up over in Electronics. Go look for it before giving up and leaving the store. ER.

  41. Harriet Moore says:

    Thank you for posting PDFs of these manuals. I inherited this Farberware broiler from my father and I love using it. I will also enjoy being able to refer to these manuals.

    Thank you very much for the free manual.
    My husband went out to grill steaks in the snow and could’t get the grill to light. Oh what to do. He asked where is that indoor grill we got as a wedding gift (34 yrs ago) We got it out but couldn’t find the manual, Your blog saved the day! Thanks again
    We also realized that we need a new cord, the cord was way too hot while cooking the steaks.
    Any suggestions where to buy one?

    Do to others as you would want them to do to you! Thanks for the example

  48. Chris Neagle says:

    Like so many of the other comments posted here – we are thrilled to have found the cookbook on your site for free. We moved into a new home recently that did not have appliances and this vintage grill was given to us by my Dad who acquired it from my Great Aunt! Not only have we put it to good use, but feel we have honored my Dad and my aunt by using it so frequently. It’s wonderful! Question for you: My husband insists the meat should be “tented” and becomes rather concerned about the consistency of the heating and worries about the timing of larger meats – any opinions?

    • usabaker says:

      Chris, If you follow the instructions in the manual there should be no need to tent it. I’ve cook a great deal on this and have never had to do anything additional. I’ll I do out side of what the manual say is to cover the inside to the open heath with foil because i’m lazy to clean ;P if you are worried about the temp of the meat just get a meat thermometer, remember when you let the meat rest 10 minutes after cooking the internal temp will rise about 5°F so if you are cooking to 145, take the meat off at 140 then let it rest for 10 minutes. THere is a great meet guide at this website;

    I wanted to thank you for taking the time to copy and post all this information. Like so many others that took the time to thank you, I too am most appreciative for being able to print this information , which I needed to help out a friend of mine. I have another manual, aside from the one I just copied (Gallery Of Broiler, Rotisserie Masterpieces) that came with mine called “Farberware Company’s Coming”(with blue cover). If I knew how to do all the scanning and posting like you did for others, I would share this with everyone, but would be happy to mail it to you for this purpose and have you return it to me when you are finished. It also contains recipes. I am literally so appalled at the nasty comments you received and thrilled you were able to turn the tables on those with hearts not nearly as generous as yours. Thanks Again, Linda

  52. Tracy L says:

    Thanks for the info. My dad gave me one, still in the box, no manual. He got it from a friend while visiting in Maryland and brought it home to Alabama. I am going to try a chicken tomorrow.

  53. Bill says:

    Many thanks for the many cook books. For over 20 years I have wanted a Ferware Broiler. I used one all the time when I was living at home in the 1970S. Just got one but without manual or cook books. What a nice thing you have done,

  56. Jane Nelson says:

    thank you for posting this information. We just bought the electric broiler at an auction and we were quite sure how to use or or how long to cook different kinds of meat. I’m saving this in my favorites so I can refer back to it often.

  57. Mark Selleck says:

    I’m curious: We inherited a grill from my in-laws, and it had no manual. After looking at your posted manuals, which I’ve downloaded, I have been unable to find any information on one part we have. It is a piece of stainless steel that is slightly bent along the center line, the long dimension, to form an elongated “V”. In its bent form it is almost exactly the same size as the opening below the grill element. I can’t figure out what is supposed to be done with this piece.

    Thanks for any help, and thanks for making the manuals available.

    Thanks so much for sharing this information. My dad use to have two of these going during Easter to cook ham for company. Years later I found one at a church yard sale and now enjoy cooking with it.

  64. Trudi says:

    Thanks so much for this act of kindness. I was so pleased to find your post as I had lost my manual after all these years and wanted to consult the cooking chart. You are a very kind person and I am hoping that you have like karma.

  65. Leah Candler says:

    Thank you, I am planning on putting on my prime rib today. It is one of my family’s favorites’. We have been cooking on the Farberware (turkey, prime and ham) going on 25 years now. I had one that I passed on to my son and I am using my mom’s today. Bless you for for sharing the manuals. Have a most wonderful Christmas today.

  66. Tina says:

    12/25/12 – Merry Christmas – pulled out my grill to do cornish hens. This grill has to be 30+years old and of course the manual is long gone – Thanks for allowing me to download yours.

    I can not thank you enough for the time you took to put the posts up that you have done. Thank you

  68. Brenda says:

    Thank you so much for sharing these manuals with us! I was just talking with my sister, sad that my CharBroil Electric Patio Kettle died on me. She suggested I get a Farberware. She has been using one for years. She buys them for $5 at yard sales and thrift stores. She’s going to “gift” me one!!

  69. Frank Palermo says:

    Would like to know if you could post the shish kebob manual, #455 I think it’s called? Thanks.

    • usabaker says:

      Hi Frank, sorry but I don’t have a manual for the optional shish kebob. I normally find manuals at second hand stores and swap meets I’ve been to neither in a longtime but when I do go I will keep an eye out for one and post it

      • Frank Palermo says:

        Thanks so much, will keep a eye out too. Will let you know if and when if i come across one.

  70. Kim H. says:

    Much appreciation for taking the time and effort to post the manual for the rotisserie! Thanks!!

  71. Deb Hill says:

    I think all of us who grew up in the 60-70′s era recall these, with fond affection, as a fun family appliance our parents used. I thought it was really “space-age”. Now, I inherited my Mom’s and like everyone, the manual was long gone. This was a last ditch effort to find help….googling. Wow! Thanks for so much info….even the recipes. And especially reading all the comments from everyone! We all have a great American bond !!!!

  72. Jef Lawlor says:

    Very nice of you to post the manual information. I have a vintage motorhome… 1976 Midas/GMC drive train) and am always looking for vintage era stuff. It has the original Magic Chef stove and convection /microwave convenction oven and a NEVER USED toaster oven. I just picked up two open hearth grills in excellent shape WITH a manual for the 450 n model at a yard sale and get this… $4 for BOTH!! They are both missing the spit supports and I have been unable to find them on the internet so I guess I’ll have to do a little fabricating. If anyone may have these please let me know! jlawlor@award-design.com

  73. Gordon Tinsman says:

    Thank you so much for posting these manuals. I bought my Open Hearth for $5.00 at a garage sale back in 1977. It had never been plugged in and even had a hideous print vinyl cover. I wanted to try the spit roasted chicken again after years of not using it and had to fabricate a new cord and the heating element support. For some reason I could not find them. I’m sure my manual is here somewhere, but you helped me to read it now and I can look for it later.

    God Bless!

  74. Carol says:

    Thank you so much for this FREE manual!!! I too saw the sites where they were charging to download this manual!!! My brother and I bought this for our parents for Christmas many years ago. My parents and my brother have passed away and I now have this Open Hearth but no manual!! I have also lost my husband and will find this a great way to prepare grilled and roasted meals for myself. I don’t know the year we bought it but do think it was in the 60′s! It is in perfect condition and looks brand new. My mother had a vinyl cover made specifically for this item and she always kept it covered and sparkling clean. The cover is still on it!! I know I will enjoy using this now that I have the manual!!! Thank you again so very much!!!

  75. R Roser says:

    Just another note of GENUINE GRATITUDE for your efforts here. I received mine from my grandparents, and will soon be buying another one for our son. We have used ours for years and years. It’s still running strong and it’s one of our favorite appliances. With your labor of kindness we can now start exploring the full extent of rotisserie/broiler cooking.
    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU ! ! !

  76. K. Wilson says:

    My wife and I have had our broiler since the early 70s when we were married. We have continued to use it countless times over the years and it obviously made to last for a long time. I found these manuals and truly appreciate you scanning these into pdf files (you did an excellent job, btw)!!
    Our manual was lost decades ago so this was like finding gold.
    These Farberware broilers were made with quality materials and desiged to be simple and last
    In today’s world, these would be typically be made in China with cheap materials and craftsmanship. Grilled pork chops on it tonight.

  77. Alan says:

    Thanks a bunch. I have 2, one was my mom’s and the other I found at the good will. No manuals until now. Nice to see others thing pay forward reaps rewards

  78. Marilyn says:

    I’m cooking a 6.20 lb. bone- in prime rib on our wonderful rotisserie. How long should I let it cook medium to medium-rare?

  79. Gary says:

    Thanks for posting the manuals. I am a freestyle chef, (I use what I have), but always need
    help on cooking times. Ther manuals cover it all. Thanks again!!!!
    Gary

  80. Jeff says:

    Kindly advise if you would like a copy of another Farberware Rotisserie manual to post to your website. The manual is for models 455N, and 455nd. I believe it is the manual that came with the last rotisseries sold by Farberware in 1985. If you want a .pdf file of the manual please email me directly.

  81. kris says:

    i never reply to things but i had to this time. Been looking for this item for a while. Had one years ago. I live in an apartment now and cant bbq so was looking for something with open drip. All you can find now days is the “george forman type”. Dont like those. Found today at goodwill for $8.00. (no rotesseri but oh well). I was thrilled and just for fun decided to see if there was a manual availble. Found you. You are a wonderful person to do this. Thank you so much!

  82. Laura says:

    Thank you ! I just picked up this grill and I had no idea how to use it. Thank you again for taking the time to scan and post these.

  83. Judy says:

    Thank you! Received this Xmas 1970, lost instructions for cooking times, but have used it over the years and will be enjoying a great barbeque once again.

  84. Jan says:

    We just cleaned out my parents house yesterday and no one else wanted the grill so I brought it home. I had to guess at how to put it together. I’m so glad you took the time and effort to put the manuals here. I really want to use it and show my husband how my mom used to cook for us. Thank you so much.

  85. CINDY says:

    THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING ME THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR MY NEWEST COOKING UTENSIL. I BOUGHT MY AT A GARAGE SALE. IT WAS 50 % OFF; SO I GOT IT FOR 12.50 BUT IT HAD NO INSTRUCTIONS. THANKS TO YOU .I WENT OUT BOUGHT A 8.5 LB CHICKEN .USED MY ROTISSERIE AND HAD THE JUCIEST MEAL EVER. THANKYOU AGAIN!!

  86. Jon Cimone says:

    Add me to the list of the very grateful so glad to have found your blog! I had a Farberware grill years ago and foolishly gave it away and now I’m looking for another one on eBay. Going through all the manuals, others’ comments and your replies, I’m more informed and know which model I want now. Thank You!

  87. I just purchased a manual for the 455N on ebay and scanned it. Would you like to add it to your free online collection? Let me know how to get it to you. I’ve been playing Johnny Farberwareseed for thirty years, buying up Open Hearth rotisseries, replacing missing parts, and giving them away. It’s nice to be able to refer them to your online manuals! Thanks so much.

  88. jeanio says:

    Thank you so much for providing these PDFs. I will be enjoying my homemade rotisserie chicken tonight!

  89. Amanda R. says:

    Thank you very much for taking the time to post this manual. I love finding vintage kitchen gadgets and have such a hard time finding the manuals. I just picked up what I think is a model 450 at a thrift store for $8.00. There’s no rotisserie kit but I’m really just excited about an indoor grill. Can’t wait to start cooking on it! Thanks again & have a blessed day. =)

  90. Joe Hussin says:

    I am looking to purchase a Farberware Rotisserie and noticed many different models. The models I found on line are 441, 445, 450, 454A, 455, 455A, 455N, 455ND, 456 and 460. I looked all over and can’t find the differences between the models. Does anybody know what the differences are?

    • Jeannie Degan says:

      Joe, by now you may have already bought your Farberware Rotisserie, but in case you haven’t, this is what I suggest. The broiler models ( the complete base where you can broil on the grill) are #450 & 460. The rotisserie unit which includes motor, spit, etc. for these broiler models are models #454 & 454-A which are 115 volts, 60 cycles, 14 watt receptacle and motor. I understand that there are universal motors out there that will do the job too. Hope this helps. Jeannie

  91. Cathy says:

    Bless your heart! I bought mine at a garage sale years ago and in several moves forgot that I had it. I’m now cleaning it up and going to see if it works. A manual didn’t come with it. I’m like you that it is so aggravating that something that people wouldn’t think twice about throwing away if they came across it without the actual grill try to profit by selling it online.

  92. Jeannie Degan says:

    Thank you for the free manuals. I hope you realize how much of a blessing you are! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  93. Liz, Islip, NY says:

    WOW! Thank you so much for posting the manuals. My BIL just gave one to my husband. It was their mothers. I have no idea what year it is, but am excited to try it.

  94. vicki says:

    thank you so much I had all the parts and no manual ,so we could use it for thanksgiving this year their should be more people like you who help us all find our missing itens

  95. Bill Utnage says:

    Thanks for the free manual, I bought the rotisserie 30 years ago, used it for awhile, then put it in the away. Got it out a couple of weeks ago, couldn’t find the manual. Again, you are a life saver. Thanks Bill,

  96. Sandy Schmitt says:

    I bought the open grill in 1975. A couple years later, I loaned my recipe book to a friend and never got it back (some friend!). The recipe I really missed was the Broiled Beef Short Ribs. The barbeque sauce was SO good and SO easy! I have thought about it many times over the years but didn’t know where I could find the book. My husband just today bought this big EXPENSIVE pellet grill and smoker. He’s making short ribs as I type this with the recipe book that came with it…which made me again think about MY recipe. THANK YOU for giving it back to me!!!! Next time we’ll use mine!

  97. Andi says:

    Thank you for sharing your manuals! The time and effort you have put into providing these items saved ME a lot of time searching the internet – and it looks like money – for the manual I needed.

  98. Steve says:

    My brother found one at a garage sale a few years ago and after see the neat foods he cooked on it, I wanted one too. Last year I almost got my wish at an estate sale I went to. But I arrived too late, a man was carrying out “my” Farberware. But today I finally scored. It’s a little used but in great shape. Thanks for the posting of these manuals and cooking ideas.

  99. Ricgie says:

    Bill… Thanks for posting these manuals. Scored a unit at Goodwill for $12, it appears to work great. Putting a chicken on this afternoon. Btw… mine came with an extra spit and motor support. If anyone needs these leave a reply. -Richie

  100. Sue Ann says:

    It is incredibly kind of you to make these manuals available free! I bought one of the rotisseries at a thrift shop in 1995, but I have never had the recipes or instructions. This will make using it again a priority, instead of a dread. Thanks!

    Sue Ann

  101. Phil says:

    I’ll just add my thanks to all these others. Very thoughtful of you to make it available. We got ours out after not using for years but no manual. We wondered how long to cook a whole chicken and you had the info. Thanks so much.

  102. Karen Long says:

    Thanks for the comment section. I have learned other hints that help with using my Model 455 Rotisserie. Keep the great ideas comming. Thanks Bill. Good job.

  103. Sus says:

    Thank you SO much for making these manuals available! I am looking forward to using a 28-years-old but little used Farberware rotisserie/grill.

  104. mikebaz says:

    Awesome info… I am looking for a Faberware rotisserie. Do you know the differences between the model #s…? Ie 455A, 455N, 450 etc… Do the letters stand for anything?

  105. mikebaz says:

    I guess I would ask which one of the older vintage Farberware rotisseries is the one to get…
