is no longer any state in the country with an obesity prevalence rate of less
than 20%, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This staggering statistic is a major reason
consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the foods they consume, and more
fastidious about ingredients, preparation and meal choices in the kitchen.
Cuisinart is unveiling a new addition to the home cook's healthy eating arsenal
with the Vertical Rotisserie (model no.
CVR-1000). The first product of its
kind for the company, the vertical rotisserie drains unwanted fat into a drip
tray and in turn, produces healthier, more delicious and succulent roasted
What to Look for When Purchasing a Rotisserie:
cooking is a style of roasting in which meat is skewered on a spit, allowing it
to be cooked evenly while being basted by its own juices. The Cuisinart Vertical Rotisserie is equipped
to roast up to eight pounds of food at one time, using five preset oven
temperature settings: 325˚ F, 350˚ F, 400˚ F, 425˚ F and 450˚ F. The new rotisserie goes beyond traditional
product functions with four accessories that make indoor roasting a multifaceted
experience. The unit has an 8-piece
skewer set for delicious kebabs, a roasting rack for beef tenderloin or leg of
lamb, a poultry tower for chicken or Cornish hens, and a multipurpose basket
for more delicate items like salmon, chicken wings and shrimp.
new rotisserie is designed with programmable touchpad controls, an LCD readout
and a 3-hour countdown timer with auto shutoff to guarantee precise and
thorough cooking, regardless of the food type.
Whether running errands or working out at the gym, these features all
help home cooks save time in the kitchen by allowing them to focus on other
tasks while food is cooking in the rotisserie. Additionally,
the removable chrome insert (which reflects heat for more even cooking) and all
four rotisserie accessories are dishwasher safe for expedient cleanup.
Cuisinart Vertical Rotisserie has a sleek and compact design with brushed
stainless steel housing that complements any kitchen. In addition, the unit has an interior light
that allows consumers to view food as it cooks, and a nonstick interior that
prevents buildup within the rotisserie itself, making it easier to clean. It also has a wide base with nonslip feet to
keep the rotisserie balanced and securely in place, and a vented top that
automatically releases heat and steam.
