This was my first coffee roaster, and I will remember it fondly. I always used it outdoors because of the smoke (though it does come with an adapter that fits on an electric dryer hose to funnel the smoke out a window). If you will never, ever need replacement parts, this is a fine entry level roaster.

You can save four different roasting profiles, but you must manually write down what each of them are - there is no way to review them. The user manual is difficult to understand and I had to re-write the programming instructions on a sticky note so I could do it. I broke the roasting carafe and have been waiting for a replacement roasting carafe for a year now. The website continues to read "on backorder" and the telephone reps refuse to take an order until they come in. No parts=no roasting joy.
When it was working, it was really really working. And when it was not, it was horrid. I almost always had to slowly twirl the machine for the first few minutes to get them evenly browned, and occasionally for the last few to get them dark roasted. No problem. I always used it outdoors to keep my smoke alarm from going off.
Sadly, one day about a year into my roasting joy everything went wrong and the roasting carafe was smashed to pieces in the wind. I have not roasted coffee since. Apparently all parts for all coffee roasters are on permanent backorder.
If I could get the parts, I would continue to use this roaster. It was a little work horse.
