Just received my oven within the past few weeks, so I haven't yet used the rotisserie function. Pros: Fits nicely on counter top and does not heat up the kitchen, nor did my counter or cabinets get over heated. Used the toaster, broiler and baking functions. Cons: The temperature is 25 degrees off. Just finished baking a meatloaf. In order to achieve 325 degrees, I had to set the oven at 350 degrees. I used a regular oven thermometer to determine the temp of the appliance. I used a Corning ware loaf pan for my meat loaf and noticed that the rack was sagging slightly in the center. So, the racks could be made of sturdier material. Overall, I am quite satisfied with my purchase. I am single and I tend to bake/broil or roast smaller portions than a regular family, so it is perfect for my needs. I do wish I could use my glass baking dishes, however, glass is not recommended.
Wonderful unit. Nice and flawless out of the box. Easy to use and to clean. Rotisserie attachment is wonderful and works great. Did a 3 # turkey roast in it for Thanksgiving and it turned out perfect. Has wonderful aluminum handles that allow removal of pan or rotisserie spit with ease.
I turned the oven on then was afraid to put it near anything else for fear of a fire. One review said it was cool to the touch, one said it isn't. So I took the chance, and #2 was correct, unfortunately. I really wanted this to work, as it has all the features I am looking for. Buut i don't have enough counter space to put it far from other things for safety. It needs more insulation between inside and outside, then may be good.

I LOVE rotisserie chicken. And this little machine does a great job. With a few caveats: 1. The whole oven gets hot: don't have it close to anything flammable. 2. Practice assembling and installing the rotisserie component BEFORE you cook for the first time and before you preheat the oven - you have to get the skewer/bar in far enough to support the meat but not so far that it doesn't connect on the other end—which will make more sense when you see it—but you don't want to be doing this for the first time, as I did, in a preheated oven. Ouch. 3. It'll take a 3 1/2 pound bird, but you need to truss it up well, pulling the legs and breast in, rather than just securing the wings, otherwise the bird drags on the pan until it's cooked enough to shrink a bit and clear the pan. And if you want crispy skin - rinse the chicken, pat it dry and let it 'cure' overnight in the refrigerator UNcovered (not touching anything else, of course. I also think this helps the bird render more fat. We got a very moist, non-greasy bird with thin, crispy skin. And clean up was a snap.
This product is AMAZING to say the least, to have rotisierrie chicken at my finger tips is a dream come true:). Easy to use, easy to clean but the food is cooked thoroughly. This is a must have.

My oven is quite new but I have made toast and liked how quickly it was done compared to my old toaster oven and the bread was evenly toasted. I've used the rotisserie twice, once for a whole chicken and once for a beef rump roast. I am really pleased, both were succulent and juicy. It was not difficult! The surfaces clean up easily and so far I love it! I plan to bake a cherry pie today and see if my little toaster oven can really save me from buying a double oven. That would save me hundreds of dollars. So far, I'm thrilled. Judy

Was surprised the product is as good as it is. Looks good and works very well. Use it everyday in place of the stove's oven. Keeps the apt cool and does its job well.

I have not used the rotisserie yet, but found baking was easy and clean up was too. The only concern was that the top and sides became quite warm and require careful handling. I am enjoying this product and am glad to have found a more healthy way of cooking while saving on cost.
I've had this for about a month, and I think it's quite good for what it is. The oven heats quickly, which is great. I used to have a smaller toaster oven, but it always had unreliable temperature setting. This one is pretty accurate. This is a perfectly adequate toaster oven for my and my boyfriend.
I don't use the rotisserie very often, but when I do it works well. You can only cook a chicken that is less than 4 lbs. In the market I use, that is a difficult size to find. The toaster oven works great. I like the removable tray on the bottom. I line it with tin foil to make cleaning easy.
This oven does everything well except the rotisserie. I had to learn to bind any meat I put on it in a very tight role with nothing at all hanging down or the rotisserie won't roll over. Centering the skewer is hard to do with a chicken because the skewer can't be placed in the center but must go under the back leaving the heavy breast hanging. I had to roast the chicken. It worked perfectly with a beef roast that I wound tightly into a roll with string. The skewer then went through the center and all was well.
I loved my last toaster oven and it just wore out as I used it daily, sometimes twice a day. So when I went to replace it, I ordered this one because of the rotisserie feature. I have not used the rotisserie yet, but love the oven itself. Nother plus is it does not heat up the kitchen and cooks all foods quickly. josie 15
This is a very nice Rotisserie Toaster Oven and Broiler. The only complaints that I have is that it could have been a little bigger to accommodate larger items on the rotisserie plus the 'box photo' of the oven shows the different 'toaster ranges' but they are not listed on the oven itself.
This is a very nice toaster oven for the money. It has a lot of nice features that more expesive units have. The oven part works great. Have not tried the rotisserie yet, but I'm sure it will work great too. You won't be dissapointed with this buy. Thanks Overstock.
