Originally worked well, but broke after only about 40-50 pounds of coffe roasted in it.
Positive Product Points
This roaster looks nice and well built. It has a nice capacity for those who want to roast up to a pound of coffee. It does a good job of roasting the coffee, nice and even. I loved it before it broke and sang its praises. Loved to show it off to all my friends.
Negative Product Points
This roaster broke after only about 40-50 pounds of coffee through it. Some electric panel broke.
I bought this roaster when I was able to drink a good bit of coffee, but I soon got ill and can't now due to some health problems. I only roasted a half pound batch every other month when I had friends over who drink coffee. I have roasted about 40-50 pounds of coffee in this roaster, which worked very well. This is not that much coffee for such a unit in my opinion. However, when I was roasting a batch the unit just stopped and the beans were sizzling with smoke pouring out of the unit. I was expecting this product to last longer than what I did. I have a freshroast and iRoast that still work. These did not have the quality of the Behmor, but they still work. I know I probably roasted about 300 pounds with the iRoast as I did drink a ton of coffee.
I cannot believe that the roaster broke with such little use. I am going to try to fix it and see if it will come to life again.
