I do run 1 pound back to back to do 3 - 4 pounds total.  No issues at all.
You have to be very diligent in the cleaning if you're going to roast that
much at a sitting though.  But mine has been absolutely rock solid.  I love
it.  No issues, no limitations that I've found yet...

Wow!  You really do up to 3-4lbs at a time in the Behmor?  Have you run into
any issues or other limitations?  Asking because I have only ever used a
Whirley Pop up to 2lbs at a time...but really performs best at 1-1.5lbs.
This method has really worked well for years but my family size has
increased so therefore now Im searching for a way to increase my roast
capacity.

Thanks,

Jeremy
