About 200g of raw almonds on (P4) for 9 minutes seems to get more, of the whole almond, roasted.  (P5) works well, too, adjusted longer for time.

When 1st crack starts is when I press (Cool).  Then let them crisp up a bit in a bowl.

Yes, the aroma and flavor of the Behmor roasted almonds is amazing.  No salt needed.

Over the past 3 or so years, I've had good success with almonds and hazelnuts.  Pecans and walnuts shed too much and make cleanup quite messy.

Since I am allergic to peanuts, I've never roasted them.  But I imagine the aroma would be heavenly.

I roasted pecans once for a pretzel turtle recipe.  The pecans went on top of and pressed into a square pretzel topped with a caramel Rollo that had been baked in the oven at 300F for four minutes so that they were soft.

Recipe turned out fine, but I didn't notice a difference between the batch that I separately roasted and those where I just put the raw pecan half on top of the Rollo and pretzel and stuck in the oven.

I'll try it your way.
As you are using P4, did you pre heat the 1600?

BTW, sorry we're taking this thread WAY WAY off topic.
I belief Prof is to blame! :>D

:>D indeed.  No, I don't preheat the 1600.  I think the 1600 is the best almond roaster in the world for under $300!  :)

Door opening trick:  I usually do this when using (P1), for about 8 seconds, for a couple of times.  But nowadays I seem to have a good handle on (P2) and it is "my" preferred profile for most of the roasts.
