Onlyfire 38 inches Cordless Outdoor Rotisserie Kit

If you only plan to cook meat and other types of food under or equivalent to 20 pounds for cheap, this could be the perfect open fire outdoor rotisserie kit for you. With its relatively cheap price tag, it does not compromise with its durable solid steel construction, flexible and easy assembly, smooth and capable motor, and sturdy set-up, it can support all kinds of food under 20 pounds with ease and reliably cooks your food evenly all throughout!

The rotisserie spit rod has a length of 38 inches which is enough cooking length to cook for 2 rotisserie chickens, a whole rotisserie turkey, and large cuts of beef and pork to roast which does not exceed the 20-pound limit!


BUILD

This outdoor rotisserie kit is built with durable solid steel material. It arrives unassembled but is easy to put together and with the dual post support system, it allows for a very sturdy set-up anywhere you go. It does include the 3V DC motor which runs on 2 “D” batteries.


COOKING EXPERIENCE

With the included 3V DC battery motor and the 3/8 inches thick hexagonal-shaped, 38 inches long rotisserie spit rod that could hold up to 20 pounds, it can rotisserie cook all kinds of food you could put on the set-up from chickens and turkeys, fish, and typical seafood, large beef cuts such as briskets, fruits, and large cuts of pork such as hams.

This has been tested by users to its maximum weight capability with a 20-pound turkey and it held up pretty great. You do need to keep in mind that having to put meat near to its maximum limit takes a bit of experimentation as you’d have to balance the meat on the rotisserie spit rod well for it to turn with the help of some counterweights. Nonetheless, the motor ran smoothly without any hiccups which cooked the entire turkey evenly all throughout.

That said, this is also perfect for an open fire rotisserie cooking experience as the assembly allows you to choose how much length of the rotisserie spit rod you’re going to be using to further improve the balance and smooth turning of your food. Additionally, it includes two rotisserie forks which definitely help in keeping your food tight and cooked evenly at all sides.


ACCESSORIES AND ATTACHMENTS INCLUDED

Out of the box, it includes the following:


  • 38‘’×3/8'' hexagon spit rod

  • heavy duty forks

  • bracket set

  • 3V DC battery motor

  • Instruction

  • adjustable height steel arms


CLEANING EXPERIENCE

With the durable solid steel construction, it’s recommended to quickly clean it right after use as it can get difficult to clean when it has cooled down completely. With that in mind, it is very easy to clean as supported by multiple users.


REMINDERS

Upon the arrival of the product at your doorstep, do immediately test the product as soon as possible because while rare, there had been cases where a few users kept it unopened but actually received a broken motor only to realize it way past the 30-day return warranty. Also, be reminded of cleaning it immediately after use.


WARRANTY


The included warranty depends on the seller where you brought the rotisserie kit from but Amazon does include free returns within 30 days after purchase.


CONCLUSION

This rotisserie kit is perfect for people looking for a cheap but reliable, easily assembled/portable, alternative for outdoor rotisserie kits. Considering its 20-pound limit, this is for people who don’t plan on rotisserie cooking so much at a time such as roasting a 7-pound beef brisket, as done by another user. This can still support rotisserie cook and turn two chickens at the same time! But if you’re planning to cook small pigs and hogs, this might not be the one for you.

Overall, it’s one of the best cheap motor-less outdoor rotisserie kits in the market right now and if all you need is what this rotisserie kit can handle, you don’t have to look anywhere else!
