Pros:Ease of use, energy savings

Cons:none

The Bottom Line: If you'd like and attractive and easy to use vertical rotisserie, this is it.


I love my oven. It gets hot immediately; there is no need to pre-heat. The motor that rotates the food is very quiet.
Prongs to hold up a roast are very sturdy - I just did 4.12 lb roast beef last night. This is about the maximum sized roast it can handle. I love the automatic timer shutting the oven off at the end. NO BURNED MEALS! It is very easy to clean as the tray and prongs can be put in the dishwasher. The one drawback is that the tray is a little difficult to place in the oven with a full load of meat on it.

Some have mentioned that the tray rusts easily, but since I don't use any of the grease and juices in the bottom, the small amount of rust on the tray doesn't bother me.

It has a digital timer that you can set up to five hours and 59 minutes, more than ample for anything you want to bake. The oven light is bright and excellent for examining the doneness of your meat. Although the oven shuts off automatically, there is no shut-off alarm buzzer which would be nice but is not a big deal. There are five digital heat settings, 360, 390, 430, 465 and 500 F. and the corresponding temperatures in Celsius are also noted. I have only used the 360, so far, but I will probably use the 500 for broiling salmon as I don't care for baked salmon. Some people have trouble making kebobs vertically as they say the meat falls and slips off. I wouldn't suggest kebobs only because I don't like baked kebobs. If you want kebobs, broiling on 500 might be a better way to go.

The oven comes with a holder for chicken, prongs for a roast, a basket for chicken pieces, fish fillets, etc., and kebob skewers. I baked a 4.5 lb chicken last night and it turned out great on 360 degrees for and hour and forty minutes. I pinned the wings down with a toothpick on each side and it was particularly notable that the entire chicken was cooked evenly, the legs and wings were not overdone. Since the seasoning also drips off with the grease, I have to be more generous with the seasoning rubs.

The oven measures 15 3/4" high and 12" deep. Although it fits under a countertop, you have to pull it out from under the cabinets to give it enough clearance to bake. When I bake, I usually put it outside on the porch to keep from heating up the house in the summer months. No problem - this is one lightweight oven. It is expensive to heat a large oven and this is a real energy saver in that respect. The interior is just barely large enough to fit a pie pan (just under 9" which is pretty standard), so I am going to try to make a blackberry pie soon. I'll update and let you know how it turns out.

I got my oven second-hand as a gift and don't have the instruction manual, recipes or warranty info, but I know it does come with these things when purchased new.
