Steve Shapson (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Spend more money and get a drum roaster which should last for a long time.
Steve Arrigotti (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Why pay more when The I Roast2 does the job?
Paul Wood (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Well worth the minimal investment for a quality roaster that will get you where you need to be.
Mark Wathne (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Cheaply made roaster, inferior materials and ZERO customer service from manufacturer
Maier Ruben (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: It will work well, but will not last.
Louis Cornell (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Doesn't roast a lot of beans, but it does the job right.
Bottom Line: Absolutely a great value with great results and still running strong going on 5 years.
Kerry Watson (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: No replacement parts = no coffee joy.
Keith Dallmer (quality: 6.5)
Bottom Line: Good little machine, easy to use, and well worth the price, particularly if you get a green coffee bundle deal
Jules Gobeil (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: In my opinion, highly recommended. Of course, if your budget allows for 500$ or more, this is another story. But at that price it seems like the best choice, given that nothing is perfect...
John Alspaugh (quality: 4.4)
Bottom Line: Produces a good roast very quickly. If you're into programming speacial roasting curves, be warned: Programming this unit is far worse then it was setting the time on your VCR in the 1980's! Ha!
Jeffrey Portman (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: An easy to use roaster that fits the bill and produces great results.
Jan Van der weel
Bottom Line: Will produce an inferior roast
J Cardinal (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Great for beginners but quickly outgrown once you learn the ropes
Gregory Bruen (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Improved Review! Functional and fun lil' roaster--the R2D2 of Arabica Geekdom that performs admirably day-in and day-out.
Gino Magnotta (quality: 9.3)
Bottom Line: IR2 is an efficient, safe and effective in turning those useless green beans into something of magic. If you live in a cooler climate however, inconsistency of results is a major issue, to the extent that I could not recommend this machine. The Behmor
Bottom Line: Roasts decent-sized, even batches at the noise level of a jet plane taking off -- but with suspect product reliability.
Doug Jamieson (quality: 5.1)
Bottom Line: Frustrating at first, but can be rewarding in the end.
Doug Gondela (quality: 2.5)
Bottom Line: Easy to use Coffee Roaster - That just works like its supposed to.
Bottom Line: excellent roast - smoky - noisy
