Maxi-Matic 2008S Countertop Toaster Oven with Rotisserie (Detailed Honest Review)
Updated: Oct 23, 2020
With an overall size of 17” x 14.5” x 13.5”, the Maxi-Matic Countertop Toaster Oven with Rotisserie contains a 6 slice 8 cubic feet capacity in the inside while leaving a small footprint in your kitchen. It’s actually considerably large inside; fit enough to roast a whole chicken while roasting vegetables underneath simultaneously or even a 12-inch pizza!
It has an aluminum construction, has sturdy buttons, has screws instead of rivets, and no internal rattling to be heard when you move it around. Even if it’s not stainless steel, it makes up for a pretty decent solid build. For the price, it’s a good trade-off. The unit itself weighs in at 17.61 pounds and is rated at 1500 Watts. With that much power rating; it can heat from up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Being a multifunction oven, it includes 8 different functions for Rotisserie, broiling, baking, toasting, steaming, oven-top grilling and the daily keep warm. It’s pretty easy to use since it already has 8 pre-set controls for you to choose from Rotisserie to toasting.
Cooking experience-wise, this oven can handle many forms of cooking without the worry of heating up the whole kitchen. Rotisserie cooking is pretty easy to deal with because of the pre-set control for Rotisserie having it tested with chicken, pork roast, bottom round, and rib roast!
Other than that, you can basically cook an entire breakfast of eggs, sausage or bacon, eggs, toast and never get the pan or yourself dirty. You can even fit in a 12-inch pizza inside! Steaming and broiling vegetables and tofu can be dealt with no waste of time. Toasting can get interesting as it includes an instruction book to set the timer to “light” or “dark” but we didn’t see a dial mark on the dial but it gets the job done and right with correct timing.
ACCESSORIES AND ATTACHMENTS INCLUDED
It even includes some very useful accessories such as the Rotisserie Tongs, Rotisserie Spit Rod, and Rotisserie Forks making the whole process convenient!
In terms of cleaning, it’s basically carefree since it’s easy to maintain with its slide-out crumb tray. You can easily remove crumbs and dripping by washing in the dishwasher or wrap in removable foil, and the bottom has a pull knob to open and wipe out.
There is a slight inconvenience where you cannot turn the timer to a lower setting so you cannot turn it off immediately if you turned the timing dial too long, so better time it well and correctly to your approximate cooking times. Another thing is that the unit itself can get considerably hot so take care.
Even with that said, the current ratings of 4.3/5 stars in Amazon with over 800+ reviews with quire a relatively attractive price tag, it makes it such a steal for a multi-function oven with rotisserie!
