Even when using my Imex (a Rosto to you North Americans), I never cleaned of the seasoning.
My RK Drum is going SO well (thanks Ron!), I don't touch it... It's roasted around 50kg since February, and besides, I would think the heat of the roast itself would burn off anything that isn't meant to stay.

Subject: +Need to clean a coffee roaster
I have been reading about folks cleaning the drums of coffee roasters - I have a Hottop and since I received it about three months ago, probably roasted over 30 pounds of coffee. When I look at the drum it has a light coating that does not rub off and I took that to be a "good thing", like a well seasoned iron skillet. So why do folks clean the "seasoning" off of the drums in a drum roaster?
