A Helpful Comparison of Cooking Appliances that can Make the Most Delicious Meat

Rotisserie Machine/Rotisserie Oven

Rotisserie machine or oven helps you to bake meat as you can skewer meat on a spit, which is a long rod which will hold meat while being cooked. This is similar to roasting the meat in a fireplace or over a campfire. But you need to put the spit in the oven. While making rotisserie meat over an open fire, you have to rotate it manually, whereas while making it in an oven, a fuel or electric power is used to rotate the skewer.

versatile ROTO-Q 360

Compared to this method, ROTO-Q360 being automatic gives you the freedom of completing your other culinary tasks or attending your guests while the meat is being rotated over the fire automatically. Also, it doesn’t need any fuel or electric power. This rotisserie appliance can be used with various other appliances, including a barbecue grill or oven. It’s also very compact and foldable, so gets accommodated in a very small corner of your kitchen, like even in a drawer, and can also be taken on your outdoor trips.

Vertical Rotisserie Oven

Vertical rotisserie is another style of rotisserie cooking. Here heat is applied directly to the food from all sides or convected from below, though this is less common.

If you compare a vertical rotisserie oven with ROTO-Q360, both are quite equal in convenience. Both require less time for cooking, are easy to use and make food tasty. A vertical rotisserie oven gets heated much faster. You can just place the meat on the center spit and turn to other things. It will do its job. However, although a vertical rotisserie oven is quite versatile and comes with stainless steel trays, fish baskets, kebab skewers and other accessories to let you prepare various types of foods, it’s bulky in size and needs a lot of space on your counter, and you cannot take it with you on outdoor trips. ROTO-Q360 on the other hand, can be taken to wherever you want and enjoy tasty food in the outdoor setting. A vertical rotisserie oven is pricey too. (ROTO-Q 360 is also equipped with rotisserie rod, rotisserie cage, rotisserie kebab, rotisserie hot dog cradle, steak cage, outdoor grill system).

The ROTO-Q 360 can cook various types of meat, fish and poultry (up to 5lbs.) Maximum rotating time 60 mins. Adjust your temperature, time by your personal preference. Additionally, by utilizing one of the many accessory attachments available for the device, you can further utilize your ROTO-Q 360 to cook other non-meat food items, such as potatoes, fries, and roasted vegetables.

Air Fryer

Another excellent appliance you can use to cook meat is an air fryer. This appliance uses an innovative method of convection. It’s in fact a small version of convection oven. It allows hot air blown by a mechanical fan to circulate around the food at high speed. An exhaust is provided at the backside which works to control the temperature by discharging unwanted hot air. It also works to prevent an increase in internal pressure.

If you compare an air fryer with ROTO-Q360, you can see that an air fryer takes too long to cook and takes almost double the time than conventional frying. Thus, if conventional frying takes 5-10 minutes, an air fryer takes 15-25 minutes. On the other hand, ROTO-Q360 cuts down cooking time by 30%.

Another major drawback of an air fryer is that it makes a loud noise (due to the fan), as loud as 65db. This may ruin the cooking process and make it unpleasant. On the other hand, ROTO-Q360 operates quietly, so, you can even listen to your favorite music while cooking.

Also, in an air fryer, you have to heap up food, often known as crowding. This is a dangerous technique because it blocks circulation of air around the food. ROTO-Q360 allows you to cook your food without crowding and thus safely.

One more disadvantage of an air fryer is that it cooks food at an extremely high temperature i.e. at around 300-400°F. So, you have to be alert because it can burn food within a fraction of a second. ROTO-Q360 eliminates the risk of burning food because it cooks food evenly from all sides.

An air fryer is also quite bulky whereas ROTO-Q360 is compact-sized. Air fryers are expensive too.

ROTO-Q360 rotates automatically and cooks food evenly

Toaster Oven

A toaster oven is one of the simplest and therefore most popular kitchen gadgets. It’s quite similar to a toaster, but is upgraded. While it can get reliably heated up and toast bread, waffles and bagels, it often has a number of settings that you can use for much more than just toasting, including baking, broiling, reheating and thawing.

However, a toaster oven cooks food much faster and so, you have to be very careful to avoid burning. This also causes uneven cooking. For example, one minute you may see your bread uncooked and the other minute, it may look charred black. Toaster ovens traditionally have a heating ring at the top; so, you should keep flipping your food regularly to ensure it’s cooked evenly. ROTO-Q360 eliminates all these risks. As it keeps automatically rotating, you don’t have to keep an eye on it and the food gets evenly cooked.

Slow Cooker

A slow cooker is another appliance you can consider for cooking meat. Its bottom is heated first and then the heat is transferred to the sides and with the evenly spread heat, the food is cooked. It has low and high settings for temperature, and mostly low setting is chosen for cooking meat. Although it puts out less heat, it’s enough to cook food safely at the correct temperature and cooking hard cuts of meat at the low setting over a longer time period gives a tender and juicy end result. High settings are typically used for sauces and dips i.e. for cooking only for an hour or two.

However, in a slow cooker, all the steam is trapped between the lid and the vessel which is then condensed and gets back down into your food all day, due to which all spices and flavors are diluted, ending up in bland food unlike ROTO-Q360 which gives you extremely juicy food with a crisp layer and flavors rightly trapped inside. On the other hand, some of the flavors like that of fresh spices like cinnamon or thyme may get overpowered.

ROTO-Q360 easy to use

Most of the above appliances have limitations to the size of the food being cooked in them. But ROTO-Q360 can accommodate even a 5 lbs. bird or you can even cook two mid-sized birds at a time. Plus, even a large 5-lb bird can be fully cooked in less than 40 minutes.

Moreover, cleaning most other appliances can be time-consuming and problematic. But ROTO-Q360 can be easily cleaned.

Hopefully, this comparison will help you choose an appliance just right to make yummy meat. All the best!
