The new roaster works- it moves the beans without the motor stopping. However, the rotisserie motor has proved to be much too slow, which results in an uneven roast. This roaster will eventually work, but I am going to have to invest in a more powerful motor. Eventually, I might be able to use the same motor for my drum roaster. For now, I will continue with the Turbo Crazy. I actually roasted my largest Turbo Crazy batch ever today- a full 14 ounces. It didn’t have any problems. I think I can probably do a full pound, maybe more, but I’m afraid to push it. One of these days I’ll try it.
