Orange Juicer + heat gun
rbata
Hi, anyone tried using an electric orange juicer motor/base instead of a bread machine for beans agitation?

A orange juicer isn't heat proof, I would need to build a heat proof chamber and paddle. While a bread machine is already heat proof.

But I'm envisioning something more compact than a bread machine.

Is the rpm of a juicer adequate?

What is the RPM of the juiser
The RPM is sedate at approx 55/60 RPM in a bread machine

In any case I'm also wondering how much green bean weight would fit in such a device ?
Not much at a guess

So my advise is get a bread maker at a thrift store for next to nothing and start roasting

Short of that
If you want compact have a look at the Turbo Roaster section
2 heat sources can be used 1) Turbo Oven or (2) Heat gun

Hi KK.

I tested my electric orange juicer and it seens like a 8 pole motor without any gear box, the RPM is much higher than 50-60.

So it wonīt work....

I had an inkling that would be the case
A juicer speed would almost reach centrifugal realms

So what's your next move - a BM or a KKTO turbo oven roaster
