Topic: Cuisinart CPM800 - Anyone seen or used one of these? (4 msgs / 70 lines)
1) From: Angelo
http://www.comforthouse.com/cuiscorblen.htmlI'm wondering how this might perform as a coffee roaster. It seems to 
be a competitor to the stir-crazy...Ya think the higher price 
translates to enough heat, so that we can dispense with the Turbo 
Oven part of the SC/TO combo?

2) From: Steve Hay
My guess is that the TO part of the SC/TO is the most important part due to
the convection heat transfer and the amount of power.  People who leave the
SC element on have reported "tipping" of the beans due to uneven
heating...    Not trying to be a naysayer-- just my thoughts.

Barry Paradox: Consider k to be the greatest element of the set of natural
numbers whose description require maximum of 50 words: "(k+1) is a natural
number which requires more than 50 words to describe it."

Angelo,
My wife brought one home on Friday and when I saw the stirring arms and how 
it works I to thought it might be good.  I noted that it is rated at 1000 
watts, and has a Teflon coating, which could be removed, that we weren't too 
happy about. The watts could be boosted a bit.  Not for me.... I don't 
think.  But I did see the possibilities right away and wondered if others 
were on to it.

There's been a couple of us working on a similiar project, and no telling
how many others are also experimenting one way or another that just aren't
posting or sharing their thoughts.   I have used a SC/TO for awhile with
great results, but I like to tinker and experiment so I have been working on
the UFO.
Here's the link: http://www.coffeegeek.com/forums/coffee/homeroast/236604In a nutshell, I started out very excited about it and my first roast with
it turned out well.  I dropped the batch sizes down then it started to not
do very well.  But I am considering trying its motor out in the Stir Crazy.
So if you do decide to experiment, which I think is neat and fun and
worthwhile, make sure you still keep your SC handy. :)
