What do you consider a reasonable time for a half lb roast? All my Hottop
(B) roasts are 227g & I can hit 1C in the 9-10 minute range & finish a brew
roast in 12-13 minutes. Adding a Variac to give me 120v(or more) throughout
the roast (if desired) cut my times to 1C by close to 2 minutes over the
stock set up.
If the M3 was a 1lbr for that price I'd own one but I can't see spending
that much for another electric .5lb roaster when I already have the HT. What
I'd really like is a gas 1lbr which makes the Mini 500 tempting but more $$
then I want to invest in home roasting at this point.
