Detailed Commentary

I just received my second Hearthware Precision Roaster (now dubbed Home Innovations). The first one started malfunctioning about a month ago.  I roast three batches twice a week to make a pot every morning (Two on Saturday ) and a Latte for my wife.  The new unit has a white base and seems to operate a litte more quietly but still sounds like a blow dryer.   am sending the first one back for service under the terms of the 1 year warranty.  I purchased the first one about 10 months before it started malfunctioning.  We`ll see how they treat me!   Paid about $120 at Sweet Maria`s. I estimate I roasted about 60 pounds of beans before the first one died.  Figure on saving about 3-4 bucks per pound buying green beans versus roasted.  The unit basically paid for itself before it croaked, but I was hoping  to see about 2-3 years use out of it.  Hopefully the new one will fare better.
