the Behmor literature is peppered with warnings that this is not a machine to be left unattended.  

Posted September 6, 2011 link

Not just Behmor but all of the roasters including commercial machines say this and for good reason, all it takes is for some kind of malfunction, like the drum stops spinning and a fire is very possible long before you expect 1st crack. My Diedrich has all sorts of sensors to shut down the machine if they pick up a problem but I won't bet my family and house on a few sensors. I also had two fluke fires with monsooned Malabar in my behmor just before or at the beginning of first crack and these where beans fires not chaff, hot smokey and trouble if I was not there to deal with them, never figured out a reason for that particular bean to do this.

Interesting musings on changes for the Behmor. I would think these changes would drive the price up. Would it be the next generation? or would it be a second model?

In regards to a re-designed Behmor that needs to have a button pushed every 30 seconds to be liability-proof, I might as well just do stovetop stockpot roasting then.  Part of the appeal of the Behmor to me is that I can walk away for 10 minutes or so and do other things.

That reminds me, I gotta go check my one year old in the bath. Almost forgot!

(Comments like this remind me why I'll never live in an apartment. Geeesh.)
