It’s in our nature to find new ways to tickle our taste buds. Over the years, we have continued the quest to develop unique culinary methods. Depending on how food is prepared and cooked, the results will vary in flavor, texture, and aroma. Perhaps the most popular method many will agree on is grilling, which imparts a one-of-a-kind experience for anyone. Meanwhile, with the help of a rotisserie machine like the ROTO-Q 360, it can elevate the process even more.
Spit-roasting allows you to grill larger ingredients and cook each side perfectly. This is made possible by consistently turning it over so that the heat is distributed evenly. So far, the only problem here is that a manual rotisserie needs somebody to oversee its operation. Some ovens have it integrated and other standalone automated options are likewise available. Yet, these are rendered unusable in off-grid scenarios. Thus, the ROTO-Q 360 addresses these problems and more.
Getting to know the story behind ROTO-Q 360
This versatile and portable rotisserie comes from the brilliant mind of Susie Wen. For those of you who might have not heard of her, she is also responsible for popular products such as the Montel Williams Health Master Elite, Power Cooker, and Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer. Now, her latest project — the ROTO-Q 360 — is ready to innovate how we cook indoors and outdoors.
With grilling season already in full swing, having the right equipment can deliver remarkable results. Sure, understanding the basics of how to cook food in various ways can go a long way, but add-ons exist to make our lives easier. As such, ROTO-Q 360 is a wonderful solution that does not require electricity, batteries, or fuel to complete its task.
Moreover, this awesome item does not force consumers to upgrade their current setup or gear. It measures 17 inches long, 7.4 inches wide, and 7.4 inches high, which allows it to fit into standard-sized ovens and gas/electric/charcoal grills even with the lid closed (depending on the space between the grids and the top of the interior part of the lid).
Benefits of owning the ROTO-Q 360
- Portability and easy storage – Conventional built-in rotisseries are often locked in place, which limits where you can prepare your food. Moreover, most commercial models are bulky, heavy, and are difficult to set up and store afterwards. This is not a problem for the ROTO-Q 360 since it only weighs 5.5 pounds, and folds down for hassle-free storage.
- Cleanup is a breeze – According to the product page, the self-rotating assembly is removable and the rest of the components are dishwasher-safe as well. Just run it through some warm water with some detergent and after a light scrub, it should be ready to keep or use all over again after it dries out.
- A superior alternative to other cooking methods – The constant turning motion of the rotisserie not only cook everything to perfection, but it also allows grease and fat to drip down onto the tray or over other ingredients underneath whatever is on the spit. In theory, this should help those who are watching what they eat. Nevertheless, this also infuses everything with rich smoky flavor as the liquids evaporate. On the other hand, you can always use it to make sauces or gravy to accompany your meal.
- User-friendly operation – Since the ROTO-Q 360 does not rely on external power sources, it uses kinetic energy stored and produced by the mainspring inside the heavy-duty gear box. Just turn the dial knob a few times as specified by the manual and let it handle the rest. Sit back and relax until its ready to dig in.
