This rotisserie is easy to use and the meat prepared for on it is wonderful. I like the grill enough that I replaced my old one (after fifteen years) for the newer model So why the score of eight. I hate cleaning it. I even line the drip pan to make it easier and it is still a chore. Performance The rotisserie comes with two different sized wire baskets that you put meat in. I prepare a larger amount of ribs, chops and such so to be honest I have never used the small basket but if you were a family of two then it would be useful. I fix a small turkey on the rotisserie and it came out to perfection. The drip pan works great if you are wanting the drippings. Whole chickens are better than any of the ones you buy precooked at the store. Durability I use this grill several times a week. The first unit was still working when I bought a new one. I gave my old one to a friend who was still using it last time I heard from her. Ease of Cleaning This is the only negative that I can say. Clean up is a pain as far as I am concerned but then I don't like to clean the charcoal grill either. With the rotisserie, you have a drip pan, wire baskets are a coated the frame which is the most difficult to clean. The glass front cleans easily even with cooked on juice from the meat. Ease of Use This is the easy part and the end results is worth the effort is takes to clean the unit up. It really is just a matter of preparing your meat with your favorite seasonings. If you are doing a chicken or turkey tie the legs with the elastic band that comes with the unit, then put it on the stainless rods, turn the unit on and it will be done in about a hour. Easy to understand instructions come with the machine.
