Topic: Z&D/Nesco (3 msgs / 79 lines)
1) From: Allon Stern
A non-roasting friend of mine was given a Z&D, which he passed along  
to me.
Any tips 'n tricks (other than the SM tip sheet) anyone cares to share?
I see that Jeff Hayden uses one for small batches in a blend - that  
may be a win here, especially for the light end of the roast profile.
Maybe it's time to try blending.

The Z/D is great for test batches in addition to blending 1/4's
for a pound.
Preheat it like you would a Gene Cafe`, then turn off & restart.
Similar profiles, turn the time up all the way and hit cool when
needed.
Also, because it does not have a temp gauge, it tends to go dark
fast; so watch the last few minutes and be ready to hit cool
BEFORE you think you should.
Not sure what model you have, but the ones without the hood
latch have been known to rattle loose and stop the roast
process, I've put a couple of phone books on top to keep that
from happening.
fun machine, ya always love your first roaster.

Yep, I always put a heavy book or two on top of it and found that helped out
quite a bit.
