I have a Stir Crazy 8 Quart popper, and there's a new purpose-built kettle corn/ nut roaster by West Bend. Motor is probably stronger too. Has heavier stir rod, along with new pan/ sump design. May be better for SCTO coffee roaster, but I do kettle corn in mine all the time. Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa! Got Grinder?
