Topic: Cheap rotisserie unit for roaster making (6 msgs / 130 lines)
1) From: Steven Van Dyke
Just got the new American Science & Surplus http://www.sciplus.com)catalog.  On Page 17 they list item 32328 - a battery powered rotisserie kit
for your barbeque grill - $15.00.  Those of you who have a Turbo air oven
but don't have  StirCrazy popcorn popper could use one of these and a cake
pan to make the stirring portion of your roaster.  It's a 3 rpm motor and
runs on 2 D-cell batteries.
Go to the site and search by item number to pull it right up.  Heck, go to
the site just for the sheer fun of it - they've got *lots* of *neat* stuff!
Enjoy!

You should go to one of the stores!  We've got one here in Milwaukee.  Yikes!! 
Only issue is drilling a hole through the glass of the Turbo oven for the motor shaft.  The motor won't last long sitting inside the oven, maybe about 5 minutes before it melts down...

Chris,
I think Steve means to use it with a 13" standalone pan, and not inside the 
glass bowl, with the motor being under the pan. This is the same idea I 
proposed a while ago...I don't think the heat will bother the motor two 
much if it's underneath the pan. Anyway, a sheet of insulation could be put 
between the motor and the pan.
I've been looking around for just such a pan. Since I will be "destroying 
it, I don't want to pay much, so it's taking awhile.
As I mentioned before, I picked up a Faberware BBQ motor in the thrift shop 
and I will (eventually) get around to putting these two items together.
Ciao,
Angelo
I'm wondering if the battery-powered motor has enough torque to move a 
pound of beans around.

Ok, I see.  I had the same sort of thought, but have the same issue - to find a deep enough and large enough pan that's cheap.  Also, you don't want it to bleed too much heat out of the roasting area.  Glass is a better insulator than steel and much more so than aluminum.

I wasn't thinking of killing the Turbo Oven's glass bowl, just a cheap cake
pan.  Heck, American Science & Surplus probably has those as well.
On the one hand, it's too bad I don't have a store here in KC.  On the other
(wife's) hand, it's a *good* thing. 
Enjoy!

Turbo Oven owners,
A thought came to me wherein we might have the best of both worlds (ceramic 
AND a hole through the bottom): a large terra cotta planter....This is 
gonna be tough for me to track down, as i live in the middle of Manhattan, 
but you guys in the burbs should be able to find something in a nursery.
I might have to have one made to order at our local pottery 
workshop...they'll probably charge a fortune, but then it could be made 
from a ceramic that is a good insulator......
The only negative I see with this is the opacity of the material...Although 
we could peer in through the small rim of glass on the top... or maybe the 
pottery shop can work a "window" of clear glass into the design...I'll 
check that out
Ciao,
Angelo
