Looks just like an Amazon roaster from China. IF I was going to buy a Chinese Roaster it would be one of the standard gas models with the blower motor on top like the 1K.  Why not just import it yourself? It's not that difficult; the builder will arrange shipping, you call a customs broker and pick it up at the closest port.

Seems under-powered among other questions.

I really cannot see even a catalytic converter action taking care of the smoke and carbon monoxide with a 2 pound roast for non outside vented operation.  Sounds deadly.

The FRS 5lb monolith used a CC for inside/non-vented operation. I used one for more than a year and am living to tell the tale. I guess it's possible, but I'm not seeing where they fit one into this roaster.

How did the FRS CC system work at capacity with darker roasts, such as a French Roast?  Was it able to eat up all the smoke and CO?

I might pay 500 USD for their (not in production) 2 pound fluid-bed. If it's at least 4 Kw.
The main problem with it would be chaff control.

Jim, do you have a link to that 2 pound fluid bed?  Curious to see a pic of it and read its specs.

Best,

Honestly, I didn't care. French roast not my market niche, a dozen+ other roasters cater to that.

However, the FRS isn't recommended for that. The smoke in the cooling tray was enough on lighter roasts - I had fans attached to mine to disperse. With a french roast I doubt you could use it in a shop environment because of that alone and you'd probably burn out the CC/filters well before intended.

Brilliant machine though.

This is the first time for years since my old faithful Stir Crazy/Galloping Gourmet
that refuses to die after roasting 1lb/wk for 10 years now, that a roaster has
caught my eye.

This machine definitely looks like the real deal, i just need a few beta-testers to
pitch in with real-wordl results.

The seller is a fellow Audi driver BTW:)
