Topic: HotTop non-availability in the USA (6 msgs / 105 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria
After our test with it, I would say the 220v would be better than 
running a 110v.
After talking last week with Kyra for a long time, I think they 
probably made the right decision. Just the surface temp problem alone 
was a long way from being solved to UL's standards. Its a great 
machine as is for those who want to open it up and tamper with the 
drum fitting, etc, but not for the average joe (like me) . I do hope 
they continue to develop it to UL standards though...

It looks like Baratza will not be launching the HotTop in the US at this
time. Importers outside the US are satisfied with the roaster as it is now.
HotTop is going to put there efforts into those markets.
HotTop is postponing the launch in US, but will continue to work to upgrade
the roaster so eventually it will be ready for this market.
Baratza recommends to people that are interested in purchasing a HotTop that
they contact HotTop directly at hottop
I was looking for an additional unit for my daughter.  If someone on the
list comes with an alternative plan (to ordering through HotTop directly or
through the British importer), please re-post your ideas and plans.
Regards, Lubos

Beware that any Hottop purchased through Europe will likely be wired for 220V.  Unless you are planning on re-wiring your kitchen or roasting area, you won't be able to roast.
I don't want to launch into another 'lawsuits, idiots, and the UL' tirade again, but this is exactly what I feared would happen.  Well, looks like I'll call Tom up and order an Alp.

Chris, you made a very good point -- something to watch for.  However, Mr.
Ian Escreet from La Macchinetta, the British Importer indicated in a note to
me that they could and would provide a 120V unit. For more information,
