Alfred,
 
The Hottop doesn't have a temperature setting.
 
Can you hear the cracks?

MessageThanks Rick for responding.
If you read the extensive review by Randy Glasshttp://www.quiknet.com/~frcn/Coffee/BeanRoasterFINAL.htmlhe shows the temperature sensor inside the unit. 
Yes I can hear the cracks, but as a newbie, am just learning to =
distinguish first from second

MessageRick: I probably misunderstood you. :When it says temp setting on =
the panel, it really means "time setting".Is that what you mean?

Hey, not only does Randy glass show the temperature sensor, if you look
on my website, here   you
can see a giant picture of it taken by our one-and-only Bob Yellin.
 
There isn't any question of whether there is a temperature sensor -- you
asked about a temperature setting, which there isn't.
 
We can pick a time setting.  That's what the controls on the front of
the Hottop do.  They are just a funny way to set a timer.  If you'd like
to know more about how the Hottop controls its heater, read the article
under the picture.
 
Sorry to yell at you about the cracks, but I've asked you that question
in each of the last four articles I've written for you.
 
There is not going to be any other way to roast coffee effectively than
by the cracks.  Just as no one can tell you how long to cook your steak,
they can't tell you how long to roast your coffee, either.  There are
just too many variables.  Is it a t-bone or a filet?  How much does it
weigh?  How hot is the fire?  Do you like your steak well-done or medium
rare?
