    i want a rotisserie to cook chickens the house, not one for a grill. i also want to get something the kids can use to cook their frozen food (corn dogs, pizza, chicken nuggets, etc) without turning on the oven and heating up the whole house.

    i was thinking of getting them a toaster oven, but then i saw some convection ovens that have rotisseries too. toaster ovens are $40, the rotisserie deal is $130. cheap is better, but the thought of a nice rotisserie chicken makes me think maybe spending more would be good.

    what's the difference between a convection and toaster oven? are there rotisseries in toaster ovens? is there a rotisserie kind of thing i can get for a regular oven that might be cheaper? any ideas?

    Most micro waves have a turntable in them. Take a little round board, and put a hole in the middle to fit the little dowel pin you are going to stick through the chicken, Cook until done, and eat the board. Throw the chiken out to the dogs.
  3. Dad bought one of those 'set it and forget it' rotisserie ovens off the shopping channel. I was very skeptical, but it works great and the food tastes very good, especially chicken and shishkabob. I'd assume it uses a wack of electricity. We've had it for about 4 years, but only use it every now and then.
