This is the 2nd iRoast 2 I have owned, the first was replaced because the base died. According to the instructions you can roast up to 1 cup of beans at a time. In my experience, depending on the amount of chaff the beans you are roasting produce, the machine can overheat. This has left me scrambling to unplug the machine and restart it before the beans burn. To avoid this I tried using the vent attachment with a dryer hose but eventually settled on just roasting fewer beans each time (more like 2/3 cup). I inherited an older Freshroast which is fine for my needs so I will not be using this one anymore.
All the programming works, the unit comes with the base, roasting chamber, vent attachment (optional), and 3 piece lid with chaff collecter. The unit roasts coffee as advertised but there is that overheating issue which seems to occur from time to time. I would just like to see this unit get used by someone rather than sit in my garage. I am cleaning up the roast chamber now, will post some pics shortly. If you have any questions please ask.
