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

HearthWare Roaster Value?
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.

well, poll results are not really helpful, huh

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.
