Doug Jamieson (quality: 5.1) 03.27.2006 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Frustrating at first, but can be rewarding in the end.
Louis Cornell (quality: 5.7) 04.02.2006 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Doesn't roast a lot of beans, but it does the job right.
Brent Heuss (quality: 7.0) 04.08.2006 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: I Know I Can Roast.  I Know I Can Roast.  I Know I Can Roast.
Gregory Bruen (quality: 7.8) 04.11.2006 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Improved Review! Functional and fun lil' roaster--the R2D2 of Arabica Geekdom that performs admirably day-in and day-out.
David Harrell (quality: 4.6) 10.29.2006 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Works great for a minimal price.
Jeffrey Portman (quality: 8.0) 12.26.2006 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: An easy to use roaster that fits the bill and produces great results.
Jules Gobeil (quality: 8.0) 01.15.2007 Rating: 8.4
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...
Carlos Alvarez (quality: 7.3) 01.28.2007 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: A lot of flexibility, consistency, and easy to use for a good price
John Alspaugh (quality: 4.4) 04.14.2007 Rating: 7.2
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!
Doug Gondela (quality: 2.5) 05.30.2007 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Easy to use Coffee Roaster - That just works like its supposed to.
Keith Dallmer (quality: 6.5) 07.17.2007 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Good little machine, easy to use, and well worth the price, particularly if you get a green coffee bundle deal
Gino Magnotta (quality: 9.3) 09.11.2007 Rating: 6.0
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
Steve Shapson (quality: 6.8) 01.06.2008 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: Spend more money and get a drum roaster which should last for a long time.
Anders Chan-Tidemann (quality: 6.0) 01.07.2008 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: Fine while it lasted.
David Batley (quality: 7.0) 01.13.2008 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: A great way to get into programmable home roasting.
Paul Wood (quality: 8.0) 01.14.2008 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Well worth the minimal investment for a quality roaster that will get you where you need to be.
Steve Arrigotti (quality: 6.0) 01.15.2008 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Why pay more when The I Roast2 does the job?
J Cardinal (quality: 7.0) 01.18.2008 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Great for beginners but quickly outgrown once you learn the ropes
Darshan-Josiah Barber 03.29.2009 Rating: 4.8
Bottom Line: I'd suggest passing on the i-Roast 2 and using a popper until you're ready to upgrade to a drum roaster.
Lance Goffinet 07.26.2009 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Absolutely a great value with great results and still running strong going on 5 years.
