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

Wattage in Hotop
After reading about some users being able to achieve a RoR of 30F/min or more, which I would be hard-pressed to do more than transiently, I decided to recheck things here with the Kill-A-Watt. Of course, I realize that the RoR is a function of several things including batch size, fan, and perhaps the bean, in addition to the wattage.
Previously I had only been interested in line voltage, which remains unchanged at 118.6v. However, during a warm-up from ambient to 200F, the wattage was constant at only 711. The spec on the website is 750, although Michael tells me they have been making 740 watt elements for 10 years. He also says my numbers are fine. What wattage do others see?
A related question is the appearance of a white powdery material on the oven wall, below the element, that I remove along with the chaff. Anyone else see this with their HT?

I think you will find that the calculations at around 108-110 would show a draw a lot closer to the 750 stated draw. Add the initial startup draw which will likely peak a bit higher and voila.

I am not sure, but I believe that these current draw figures are for "maximum" situations. Not a guarantee that the appliance will draw that much current.
