Topic: used IRoast (3 msgs / 36 lines)
1) From: MS
I just found a used IRoast at my local habitat for Humanity.  But it is missing the glass rosting pot.  It has the base and the chafe collector topwhich I expect fits on the roasting pot. The cost is $5 and i can get online the missing part fo around $35.  Is it worth it? Or, can you regularly find them used --and a whole unit--for $40 to $50?  Is the roast better than the Poppery II?

I think so ... you have a bit more time and temp control. I have an I roast 
and it  works just fine for now ... will build something bigger when I get 
down to Florida this winter ... that is the only problem ... small batches. 
Good luck, Bob

I haven't seen used iRoast machines anywhere, but if it is in working 
order, I would think that a total cost of $40 is a good deal and would 
be worth the money spent.  A new one costs something like $170ish.  I 
like the iRoast better than air popper roasters, but I'll reserve my 
comment on what is "better" so nobody gets their pink panties in a 
twist.  I think it is all a matter of preference.  I have an RK Drum 
(which is fantastic) but still occasionally heat gun roast in the 
dogbowl or for really small batches use the iRoast (max capacity 150 
grams/5.3 ounces).
