This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Did a lot of hunting and shooting when I was young before we know about = hearing loss. What about the beeps on the Hot Top? My hearing is quite good except for the high frequencies like watch = alarms and sometimes auto turn signals. What about the beeps on the Hot Top?
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Huh? Just kidding. I can hear the HotTop beeps if my ear is turned that = direction. But I roast by sight, smell & sound so I can crank the HotTop = all the way to 6 or 7, set a timer for 5 minutes (warm up), and hit = start. After 5 minutes I dump in the beans and set the timer for another = 15 or 16 minutes. After the 15 minutes I tend the roast closely until it = is complete, hit the eject button and come back later for the finisher = product. Roasting that way I really don't need to hear them beeps = anyway. TerryF

In fact, when it first came out a number of people complained about it and asked how to turn it down or off. I don't have any problem hearing it if I'm on the same floor as the roaster. However, since I tend to start the roast and walk away to do other things, I set the countdown timer on my watch for 15 minutes and when it goes off I return to the kitchen to start listening for the cracks.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Terry: Did my first roast on the Hot Top and I can't hear the beeps at = all. My first roast was Columbian and at the three setting, it came out = too light. So I put them back and did them again as recommended in the = booklet. Much darker this time, maybe too dark. Looks like full city = plus.. Thanks for the tip and I'll have to use your method Huh ?
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Alfred, This method has worked very well for me. I hope you have = equally good success with your future roasts. Terry
