Michael W (quality: 7.1) 05.18.2004 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Consistent, easy-to-use, good-looking, large batch, excellent flavor and aroma.  If you can afford it, it is a nice luxury.
Fred Langer (quality: 8.0) 03.05.2004 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: If you want 1/2 pound batches of repeatable roasts, don't mind the higher price (factor in the possible need for a variac if your voltage is wimpy) - this beats the Alpenrost hands down.
Jon Radoff (quality: 3.7) 02.27.2004 Rating: 4.6
Bottom Line: Dangerous fire-hazard, avoid!
JP Cordill (quality: 7.6) 11.29.2003 Rating: 4.6
Bottom Line: If you buy a Hottop you gamble on getting a real bean baker like mine.
Bill M (quality: 5.8) 11.26.2003 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Would I buy it again?   Absolutely!
Susie L (Roxie's mom) (quality: 7.5) 11.14.2003 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: This is the first roaster (out of 7) that I'm very happy with.
