In this work, we study minimal rotational surfaces in the product space ℚ2 ϵ × S1, where ℚ2 ϵ denotes either the unit 2-sphere 2 or the 2-dimensional hyperbolic space ℍ2 of constant curvature - 1, according to ϵ = 1 or ϵ = -1, respectively. While there is only one kind of rotational surfaces in S2 × S1, there are three different possibilities for rotational surfaces in ℍ2 × S1, according to the types of the induced inner product on the rotational axis of the surface. We determine the profile curves of all minimal rotational surfaces in ℚ2 ϵ × S1.
