Thanks for the addition to the group. Seriously considering building a drum roaster along the lines of oldgrumpus's. Love the design and craftsmanship.

Mystery new chinese drum roaster
renatoa
Noticed today this strange Apple-sque white arrival:

https://www.aliex...20680.html

Probably is the cheapest solution that can be found for 1.5 kg roaster, but I doubt this capacity as being real, given the small size of "the cube". The limited heaters power, 1600W only, is another factor that place this machine in the 1-2 pounds class, rather than +1 kg.
Also, no details about a heat profile, chaff management. no visible exhaust for smoke.
No wonder about all missing, because it's not a specialized coffee roaster, but a generic seeds oven.
Even so, it looks very promising as a development platform for anyone interested in a drum roaster, but not having the tools, skills and desired for tinkering.
You get a lot for this amount: mechanics - drum with interesting looking vanes, heaters, sensors, a temperature control system, and free shipping !... very little to add to have a fully featured 1 kg roaster for a lot under $1000.

From what I can see itís multi purpose nut roaster

Independent precise heat control to 250 Celsius is optional
And yes you are correct
1) where does the chaff go
2) Coffee Oils can destroy many electronics if not managed
