Product Reviewed: Fresh Roast SR500
Bottom Line: This is a much better roaster than the old Plus 8 and a better option than a hot air popper because it is built to take the heat and has more control, as well as a chaff collector and a timer.

Product Reviewed: FreshRoast 8+
Bottom Line: Inexpensive entry into coffee roasting made a bit more expensive by variac and thermocouple that are very helpful. Small batch size can be a plus.
