Been roasting 10 days now using Whirly Pop and my results are improving. Very enjoyable hobby so far. Thank's for the site.
Welcome to Homeroasters!

The Whirly pop is a great way to start roasting. What type of beans are you roasting?

KKTO Roaster.
Thanks for the welcome. So far 3 kinds from Guatemala, 1 from Nicaragua, something called Indian Mysore and there's another bean in the freezer. I have 3 more on order. The first to roasts I guess you could say I burned up. After those I got smart & being a rookie and removed from fire at the first sign of second crack.
I was also not letting the roasted beans rest long enough and after more research I let the Indian Mysore rest 5 days and what a change. My roasting has been 4 oz ata time.
Welcome to HRO.

I have been so tempted to get a whirly pop every time I find one at the local thrift stores.

All I have seen have been new/unused and $5 +/-. The wife just won't let me get another coffee device unless I really whine. I am more apt to whine for an unusual brewer than another roasting method that I more than likely would never use.
