The Cuisinart CVR-1000 Vertical Countertop Rotisserie with Touchpad Controls, vertical rotisserie for short, is made from brushed stainless steel, and measures 16” x 16” x 18” approximately. There is a door on the front with a viewing window and a large handle. Beneath the door is the control panel, with buttons for time, temperature, start and stop, and a switch for the internal light. There is also a small LCD display. This chicken rotisserie oven comes with a full set of racks, including a roasting rack, a poultry tower, a multi-purpose basket, and a drip tray. The unit connects to a standard power outlet.
This Cuisinart oven rotisserie isn’t the cheapest on the market by a long way, the price at the time of writing was over $400! It is quite a large unit, so make sure you measure the space marked out for it before you purchase.
I found it to be one of the easiest vertical grill rotisseries to use, as the racks are all separate parts, more like stands, that can be loaded with food and easily placed inside the unit. It can take about 8lbs of food, but that’s going to vary depending on the shape. For instance an 8lb chicken wouldn’t fit, you’re probably looking at around the four or five pound mark for that. The food it produces is tasty and has less fat, as a quick look in the drip tray will show you. Once the rotisserie oven is set off and working, you’re free to do something else, the unit will beep when it’s done.
The controls are easy enough to work out. If you can use a microwave oven you can use this. The control panel allows you to set the cooking time in hours and minutes. There are five preset temperatures from 325 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. The start and stop button allows you to pause the cooking or stop it altogether, and there’s even a light switch for the internal light.
Everything you can remove from the rotisserie machine can be washed in the dishwasher, and the interior is non-stick wipe clean.
Overall, this Cuisinart vertical rotisserie is an excellent product, full of features, has a large capacity, will look good in most kitchens, and is easy to use. When it comes to the cost and value for money, that depends very much on your budget and how much you think you’ll use it.
