Topic: hearthware gourmet roasting cycle (2 msgs / 35 lines)
1) From: Acorn54
just tried a gourmet roaster i had lying around the house. my original 
gourmet roasted to second crack in 7 minutes (a timer setting of eight) my 
new gourmet roaster burns the beans at that setting. i have to set the new 
gourmet at 6  or 5 1/2
and i don't get the clear delineation between first and second cracks. seems 
i have to go to cooling cycle when the first crack stage in not clearly over. 
anyone else have this situation with their gourmet?-guy from long island

I do know that you can take a pair of needle nose plyers and adjust the tabs
on the Gourmet so that it slips out of the base easier, and when you reach
your desired roast level, just slip it out, carefully remove the chaff
collector and dump the beans into a bowl and cool them by another method.
That way you don't have to worry about the timer or cool down cycle.  You
know its important to get the beans cooled as quickly as possible, but an
enterprising person can come up with alternatives.
