HearthWare Roaster Value?
snwcmpr
I have this OLD roaster with the 3 original bags of green coffee beans.
It has the manuals, too.
It works and cools down at the end.
I have not roasted with it. Just turned it on, watched the timer, felt the heat, felt the cool down.

Any idea of the value?
I am not listing this for sale, at this time.
I just want a feel.

Edit: NOT the Stainless Steel Roaster

$1.25 on the high end and I'll send the check tonight. But it has to be in impeccable condition!limb

I have no idea but definitely interested when/if you decide to sell. I remember looking at the ads for that one way back years ago wondering how it would perform.

Another similar build and load, from same era, the Melitta AromaRoast, is on eBay for $40... for long time, but nobody seems interested.

Found a review of the machine:

btw, HearthWare is today NuWave, and is specialised in IR halogen ovens Grin

A nice write up. Thank you for that.

Indeed, apparently would be obvious that people should prefer start with this instead mod a popper ...
So the value should be at least of a good popper.

Hi Ken, I thought I'd update you on my thoughts on the Hearthware roaster you so kindly sold me for no more than the cost of shipping.
Using a 15 amp variac, I'm still doing sample and morning press pot roasts using this roaster and even though it frustrates the heck out of me, I've gotten some of the finest roasts out of it than from all of my previous and current roasters. Another puzzling outcome is that after sampling roasts in it for a year now and performing multiple experiments with various profiles, the best roasts are by letting it run its natural curve from start to finish with no change of power input after start of roast.
In fact, with the colder outdoor temps this week, I took it outdoors in 48 degree ambient, without the variac and ran a fine Kenya from Happymug through it and total roast time with 1 min 15 sec into first crack came out to 5 min 15 sec. I was expecting an underdeveloped grassy cup but this morning it brewed up one of the finest Kenyas I've had in a couple of years.
