CLEANING EXPERIENCE

Having that chrome steel material used even on the motor casing makes cleaning much easier such as wiping down the stain and splashes from rotisserie cooking. But, it’s recommended to clean it right after use as it becomes difficult to clean up the mess when it cools down.


REMINDERS

Even with the advertised 40-pound weight capacity on the rotisserie kit, it’s definitely much better to follow the recommended capacity which is around 15-20 pounds as from many user reviews. Right above 20 pounds and the motor will start to struggle to turn the weight on the rotisserie spit rod.
