Why is it that coffee roasters have such lousy heating systems? My first  
IRoast had a faulty system that roasted coffee to ash in under 10 minutes, 
the  second worked for a few months, then at eight minutes proceeded to heat 
up to  high levels and burn everything to ash. My first Gene had a faulty 
thermostat  that again turned beans to ash in a matter of minutes and then 
melted most of  the machine. Two others went the other direction, with the 
thermostat failing to  go over 450F. And all of this after cleaning after each 
use and relatively minor  use.
