[Homeroast] Roasters for Blind Folks

I used to have a basic hottop.  I basically punched it up to as long as it
would go and roasted by sight, smell and sound (just basically an "on"
button, hitting a "length" button a handful of times, and an "eject"

It would work well and can handle about a 1/2 pound per roast.  The big
drawback is that the area surrounding the roasting drum is not protected so
she would have to be very careful about where to touch.  I'm sighted and
more than once (minorly) burnt myself.

Grace and peace,
