A great roaster for beginner to expert if you don't mind 1/4 cup batches. Evenly roasted batches except on larger beans.
Positive Product Points
Very easy to use and produces consistent roasts nearly every time. Easy chaff collection. Able to see beans to judge the roast visually as well as audibly.
Negative Product Points
Small batches. Compliants of a "floating dial" but doesn't affect the roast time.
Produces consistent, even roasts, I've only gone to through the 2nd crack for my darkest roast on a setting of 5.5, plenty of room left on the dial for darker roasts. Only really bad thing I have noticed is that on exceptionally large beans (i.e. Mexican Maragogype,) they tend to not circulate as well, which resulted in a slightly uneven roast.
This was my entry level roaster and I feel I couldn't have gone wrong. The price of $130 was a little steep, for $100 it would be a better deal. For every home roaster from beginner to expert I think this is a quality roaster.
