The Different Types Of Rotisseries
As you have seen from our selection, there are several types of rotisseries:
- The electric rotisserie : perfect for use all year round, it is a compact appliance. Fully automatic, it’s the easiest to use and you won’t even have to watch it since it has a timer. Maintenance is also very simple with accessories that are generally dishwasher safe. However, space will be limited and cooking may take a little longer. The electric rotisserie can be a stand-alone module or included in a mini-oven which will then offer you many other preparation possibilities.
- The gas rotisserie : even if we wanted to present it to you in this comparison, the gas rotisserie is mainly intended for professionals. The capacity is substantial, disproportionate for the daily life of a lambda household. The power is much higher, the operation more complicated and the cleaning tedious. In short, unless you want to get into the profession soon or regularly organize large parties with family and friends, the gas rotisserie is not ideal for an individual.
- The rotisserie for barbecue or wood fire : here we are talking more about a rotisserie kit. It can be integrated or added as an accessory to a gas or charcoal barbecue. The rotisserie can also be completely independent, autonomous and nomadic, installed above a brazier or an outdoor wood fire.
How to choose the right rotisserie?
The choice of the rotisserie is very variable according to its type, we have just spoken about it and it is obviously the first point to take into account. For example, you must bear in mind that you will not be able (or with difficulty) to use the rotisserie of your barbecue in the middle of winter or even when the weather is too bad, which can unfortunately happen even in the middle of summer these days
… This fact, it is important to ask yourself if you want to be able to use your rotisserie easily and at any time or if it is for you an additional accessory which can in particular diversify the kitchen with the barbecue in summer. In the first case, the independent electric rotisserie or multifunction appliances with rotisserie will be the most suitable for your needs.
Then, some other criteria can allow you to find the best rotisserie for you:
The dimensions of the rotisserie
If the square meters are lacking and the cupboards are overflowing, you will not be able to afford to buy an oven for the kitchen or even a large barbecue for the outside. In that case, look to small, compact rotisseries or perhaps consider replacing an existing unit with a more versatile model, with a rotisserie. For the outdoors and to take camping, rotisserie kits or rotisseries that can be added directly to an existing barbecue will make you happy.
The cooking capacity of the rotisserie
for How many people ? Observe the cooking surface, the capacity or the weight of meat that each rotisserie can cook. Clearly, you have to be able to cook enough for the composition of your household if it is for daily use. If it’s for summer meals with family and friends, ask yourself how many people you should be able to accommodate. Of course, electric rotisseries have a lower capacity compared to large rotisseries for barbecues, oven type appliances will generally fall between the two. Mounted on a spit and firmly clamped between the clamps, you can actually cook a fair amount of meat kebab style!
The practicality of the rotisserie
Pierce the chicken, enclose it in an electric rotisserie, close the door, engage the timer and wait for the beep while reading a good book. Always skewer the meat, but make the fire, install the spit, start the motor, watch for flames that are going crazy or the fire that is dying out and regularly check the end of cooking time…
One is more practical than the other, however we cannot speak of an equivalent experience and this characteristic little smoky taste will not be found everywhere… Unless you have fun buying two types of rotisseries, you will have no choice but to compromises or simply choose what suits you best!
The accessories provided
The accessories are part of the practical concept, in addition to potentially reducing your budget, everything that is included is no longer to be purchased so do not hesitate to compare the offers! Protective cover, skewers, various grills, kitchen utensils, cleaning accessories…
Think about what can be useful to you (because not everything is always useful), the various cooking accessories also increase the versatility of the rotisserie. Indeed, with a simple spit, you can only bet on large pieces of meat. If peaks are added, you will be able to prepare delicious skewers of meat and vegetables. Double grids or cups further diversify by cooking ingredients that would have fallen on simple
skewers’stainless steel ! Otherwise hello to rust and ultra-rapid degradation… In the presence of a glass door, make sure that it is tempered glass resistantFinally, for complete appliances, take a look at the interior surface to favor robust and easy-to-maintain non-stick coatings.
Why Buy A Rotisserie?
The rotisserie offers a unique cooking method that you will not find identically in a grill, an oven or even a barbecue. It cooks quickly and evenly thanks to its automatic rotating system. Indeed, forget the rustic manual rotisserie installed above the fire, the rotisserie turns by itself and during this time you can do something else ! With some models, you can even directly activate a timer so that the rotisserie stops by itself after the given time.
So no risk of having a charred chicken! Theuse is extremely simple and you can obtain, at home, a cooking similar to that of the professionals. It is also worth pointing out that with vertical cooking the fat falls into a collection tray, so your cooking is much healthier than with horizontal cooking where the fat stagnates and soaks the meat. However, this cooking juice is not lost since you can always recover it very easily, for example to make a sauce.
What is the price of a rotisserie?
A small roasting pan first price sells for less than 100 € while large professional rotisseries exceed €6,000. The variety of models is enormous, for various needs and uses. It’s important to narrow down the selection to find the type of rotisserie that’s right for you so that you can then compare prices in each category, based on the features and quality of each model.
How to Clean Your Rotisserie?
Regardless of the type, you will need to clean your rotisserie after each use if you want to keep it functional and in good condition. The less you wait the better, but let it cool anyway! Avoid harsh detergents that could damage the coating of your rotisserie, in addition to being potentially bad for your health. Prefer hot water mixed with dishwashing liquid, a sponge, a small brush and a little elbow grease. This should be enough to clean properly if you do it every time.
If chunks of meat have stuck too much to the skewer or skewers, soak or wrap in a damp, soapy cloth to loosen the dirt. For the stains most stubborn, you can also make a paste with baking soda and water, rub the surfaces then soak with a little white vinegar. The foamy reaction of this mixture is unparalleled for descaling, it also has the advantage of disinfecting in a 100% natural and food-compatible way !
Where to Buy a Rotisserie?

Why have to go out, waste time and pay for gas when you can just click and receive straight to your door?
