Oh, I just have to disagree with this. My homemade, well insulated
'Zen Roaster' can do 1.5 lbs in 14 minutes, and I've maxed it out at
2.5 lbs with a 17 minute roast. And it's 120 V. 20 amps, but 120
V. Day in day out it does 1 lb at no where near full power. The
main reason we don't see it is safety and various safety concerns and
the cost to bring it to market.
My $0.02 worth.
