The older galloping gourmet tops are well built. The newer Sunpentown
are lower wattage and cheaper made.  I by-passed the thermostat and
run the fan on a separate line and run the heating element through a
variac. My top has over 1000 roasts on it. I never used the stir crazy
cuz found it too slow in rpms, heard the ufo model is a bit faster but
I spent the time to build a custom bottom. see my blog for more info
