You get what you pay for

  • Summary: So, having read many reviews I purchased two. One for me and one for best friend. She did not want it, despite being on Atkins. Too big for her counter she says, with Amazon the return was truly painless. Mine, is just as big; However, I have space for it. Too bad for her. The 4.5-5lb chickens are absolutely scrumptious with Walkers Wood Jamaican jerk seasoning and honey for the last few minutes of roasting.

  • Summary: The ease of using and cleaning this machine has made me very happy. Its as good as my Showtime rotisserie from the 90's without the hassle of cleaning. I use it about 4 or five times per month and am happy every time. Made Gyro meat two nights ago, made chicken tonight, and probably a tri-tip or hamburgers tomorrow... good purchase!!!

Cuisinart Rostisserie is Awesome!

A. Schoenhofer, Amazon
8 January 2012
  • Summary: Used my new rotisserie for the first time tonight, and I am so impressed. I made a 4.45 lb chicken in it, and it was every bit as delicious and juicy as picking up a rotisserie at your local restaurant. Very tasty, and what surprised me most was the speed. It would have taken me an hour and a half to two hours to bake a whole chicken in my oven, but this bird took only an hour.

Excellent Product

  • Summary: The first thing I made was a chicken. I followed the directions and brined the chicken first. I also stuffed some fresh herbs in the cavity and brushed the skin with melted butter. It turned out perfect. The skin was golden brown, the chicken was moist and tender. Next I tried a pork loin roast. Brined that also then put a dry rub on before cooking. We all agreed we never had pork that was so moist, juicy and flavorful.

Great Product

  • Summary: We cook a lot and have almost every kitchen gadget there is, but we didn't have a rotisserie oven. I did the research and based my decision to go with a Cuisinart because of the very good reviews. I've had it now for about 2 months and I'm very pleased with the functionality of the machine. My first chicken was a tad bit burnt but that was my fault because I didn't have it completely straight.

  • Summary: the item died the first time I used it. I was cooking a boneless rib roast and an hour into the cook, it just stopped running, I checked the plug, moved it to another one and gave it time to cool down , but it never went back on so I ended finishing my roast in the oven, this is going back on monday.....

Togetherness and the Rotisserie- a cautionary tale for American marriages

  • Summary: So after years of store-bought rotisserie chicken, we decided we could do it ourselves. It was an easy decision, the price was right and some friends swore by their machines (not at their machines as is often the case). It assembled in minutes, which is good. Even better was that we only had to disassemble it once as a result of not understanding the manual. Apparently there are only two options for assembly, the wrong way and the right way.

  • Summary: Have been using it for over a year about 2-3 times per month Pros: 1) Nice looking 2) Compact 3) Easy to use 4) It does the job Cons: 1) Internal coating started peeling off pretty soon 2) Door handle fell off soon (screws are too short) - have to glue it back 3) Flimsy construction, particularly, the door 4) Too expensive

Best Rotisserie I've ever owned

Keith, Amazon
13 March 2011
  • Summary: I was recently diagnosed as type-2 diabetic, and cholesterol level off the charts, then to top it off my blood pressure was sky rocketing. In order to manage my new problems required a diet change. So after figuring out how to cook the way I needed to I realized I didn't have enough oven space. This works great for all my needs. It's easy to use, if you know how to cook or at least follow directions.

  • Summary: I recently bought this to replace an old Ronco rotisserie that was past it's prime. I really like how it's much more quiet than the Ronco. No matter what I did, the Ronco made a squeaky grinding noise while it rotated, the Cuisinart does not. It makes NO noise at all. I also like how it takes up less space on the counter. Loading and unloading the food is very easy, and clean up is a snap, no chicken stuck to a metal skewer. Highly recommended!
