The simpler the roaster, the more able to "supercharge".  If you're
using a popcorn popper you can turn up the voltage until the thing
melts.  Go pay $3.50 for another one, and next time only turn it up
about 9/10 as much. :-)
 
You'll need to split out the fan control for that to be effective,
though, otherwise when you turn up the heat you'll also turn up the
airflow.  To say nothing of blowing beans out the top of the popper.
 
On the other hand, supercharging an Alpenrost or a Hottop is problematic
and likely to be expensive.
