HEY!
Sorry, I have not yet decided that I am coordinated enough to stir and 
cook at the same time, but...
My PGR (Pretty Good Roaster), formerly Turbo Beast, keeps roasting!
Continues to be able to roast anywhere from enough coffee for a single 
cup to well over a pound with no problems.
Remember,
 it is a semi-complex marriage between a bread maker, SS 8 qt mixing 
bowl, and a 1450 Watt Galloping Gourmet convection oven, so it is really 
not for everyone. =-O
However, with diligence, aptitude, attitude, and a good selection from 
thrift stores you could duplicate it for less than sixty bucks, 
including the new thermo couple :-) .
Reminds me of an Ariens snow blower.
They just move snow.
Dependable.
This just roasts coffee.
(er.. and chocolate :-) :-X )
Also, I expect, that Jason's and Dan's continue to roast.
Please do not forget, the RK Drum 8-) , it will continue to roast into 
the next century.
Respectfully submitted,
PeterZ
Thinks that there are quite a few pretty good, dependable, roasters out 
there.
But would never buy one. ;-)

So if you use a pan - what type - stainless steel, cast iron?  I have two perfectly seasoned cast iron skillets, but I don't imagine they would work for that very reason (I suspect they would impart some flavor).  Should I assume that whatever pan I use will end up dedicated to this function alone?
