Incorrect. As a point of clarification while the Behmor may "look" like a
toaster oven, it is not now nor was it ever a toaster oven converted to
roast coffee. Joe spent a number of years researching and designing the
Behmor 1600 from the ground up. Yes it may have borrowed some aspects of
some toaster ovens, yet the Behmor itself was never a toaster oven.

miKe,
What I got from Ira's message was that the Behmor was designed to perform a
complete roast and cool cycle with no user intervention required, IF you are
using it as designed with the proper bean load size, where in reality, there
are many folks out there that are intentionally using a smaller load, doing
pre-roasts, and other things in the Behmor and hitting cool manually when
the beans are at the proper roast level.
I guess the toaster analogy is that you put the bread in and it pops out or
dings when it's done.

Ah, since there are "roasters" out there being sold (eBay etc.) that are
based on modified little ovens and have heard references to the Behmor
lumped in with them in the past I took the statement literally. Never
mind:-)

Actually, like a toaster, you put in coffee press the proper buttons 
and 30 minutes or so later, perfectly roasted coffee, or that seems 
to have been the design goal.
I know it's not a toaster, and I'd assume if you thought about it, 
you'd have realized that.  There was no insult intended and whether 
or not it's based on a toaster or a rotisserie oven doesn't really 
matter, what matters is the end result which is a coffee roaster that 
works pretty well and can usually roast a pound of coffee at a time.
