Bottom Line: Good roaster for the home,  allows for multiple roasts with fairly smoke free results -- uniform roast results
Tom Bodet (quality: 8.0) 01.03.2006 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Looks good on the counter, smokeless operation delivers but needs to be a little quiker and a lot quieter.
Walt Brubaker (quality: 7.8) 06.08.2006 Rating: 3.4
Bottom Line: Buy one of these cheap plastic toys as a gift for your brother-in-law.  Buy a decent-quality unit from another manufacturer for yourself.
