Kitchen appliances have the ability to not only extend our culinary capabilities, but they also often present easy opportunities to try new recipes. Things we might not normally try in the oven or on the stovetop suddenly become possible. Now granted, many kitchen appliances specialize in convenience, simply affording an easier opportunity to get the job done. That may be all fine and good, but when a kitchen appliance expands the way we can cook, then its value becomes much more appreciated--no matter what new recipe we may try.

When it comes to rotisserie cooking, not many recipes can be easily replicated in the oven, but that doesn't mean the opportunity isn't available for the kitchen. The Cuizen Vertigenius Electric Vertical Roaster Oven combines convenience and versatility in an approximately 14-square-inch footprint. Measuring 16 inches tall, the machine features a variety of accessories to produce everything from rotisserie chicken and kabobs to roasted fish and vegetables.

Like any countertop appliance what it can do for you is what matters most. Rotisserie-cooked food can be a healthy alternative to other methods of cooking. Or, one could let the chicken fat drip down onto rosemary-seasoned cut potatoes; the choice is yours. The ability to try new things is what is important here--or even try a new way to make an old favorite.
