Cuisinart CVR-1000 Vertical Countertop Rotisserie with Touchpad Controls is a fast, easy, healthy and delicious way to cook your meals. This vertical countertop rotisserie comes in an eye-catching brushed stainless steel exterior with 8 pound food capacity that allows an efficient way to prepare meat. It is designed to evenly brown everything from roasts to vegetables to shish kebabs letting you make delicious food time and again. It includes an 8-piece skewer set, roasting rack, poultry tower, multi-purpose basket, and a drip tray. The non-stick interior along with 5 preset temperature settings and touchpad controls and LCD readout let you enjoy the benefits of an electric roaster by cooking some of your favorite items.

To keep the temperature consistent, it comes with a removable chrome insert that reflects heat as the rotisserie turns, and a 3-hour countdown timer with auto-shutoff ensures perfect timing. This countertop Cuisinart cooking tool includes helpful accessories as well as a recipe book with a number of delicious options to help get you started. Many reviews have appreciated the interior light feature that allows you to view food as it cooks.

With time and several trials it can whip up a perfectly cooked meal however many users would have liked the instruction manual to include more information regarding the cooking time and temperature control guidelines. Additionally many user users pointed out that the unit worked fairly well with smaller meat loads, working with bigger portions could be a little difficult as parts of meat can get too close to the heating element.

Overall, the Cuisinart vertical rotisserie is a great addition to any kitchen. Cleanup is a cinch with the polished heat reflector behind the heating elements that just slides right out and the drip tray that catches all the juices, so the grand finish is just a quick and easy wipe-down on the glass door and interior walls. It is a time saving and easy way to prepare healthy and delicious roasted entrée or sides of vegetables or seafood that keep firm in a multipurpose basket.
