I bought this this to replace the existing unit. Firstly the motor unit was a massive improvement as it was so quiet. My only issue is that the prongs constantly come loose, which means the meat doesn't rotate and burns if you're not looking. The screw in the prongs needed constantly tightening which is annoying, however I will use the prongs from my old unit. I was also disappointed for for the cost that the bar was a solid unti and couldn't be unscrewed in the middle and stored easily like my existing unit. But I can use the old one. For the price I paid, I felt I should have shopped around more.
Works a treat

It is easy to buy a cheaper rotisserie - and you can certainly spend a lot more, but why do that? This one really does the job. What the picture above doesn't show you is the powerful little motor that comes with it that happily wound a large chicken around for nearly two hours as the unit cooked it to perfection. The prongs are sharp (speaking from personal experience here, but hey, they're supposed to stick into flesh!) and position firmly with their screw down mechanisms. Fitting? The left bracket is infinitely adjustable in many ways. I had to drill two holes each side of the BBQ and then level the whole thing carefully but it goes on really easily. The motor then just slots in and away you go. One tiny beef - the instructions aren't quite clear enough to follow easily and the diagrams are truly tiny. The spit I received differed slightly in design from the one above so there was a little bit of headscratching at first, but none of this proved a real issue. All in all, I thoroughly recommend this unit and I was delighted with how fast the Garden Gift Shop delivered it.
