Need a roaster

Postby joechinon » Thu Jul 14, 2011 6:01 pm

I went through 2 Iroast 2 in about 23 months, and since then I've been using my old popcorn poppers. But I'm really tired of the small batch size and having to wait 2 hours to roast another small batch. :x
So I'm in the market for something bigger and better but i want something that will last longer than the warranty. I see the Gencafe and Behmor but I'm looking for some real world feedback on them before I drop a load of cash.

I'm still using a converted bread machine and a heat gun...seems like it may last forever :wink:
