If this is the white Home Innovations Precision, I heartily recommend that
model. I have been using mine for about 15 months, averaging 8-10 roasting
batches per week (each a heaping half-cup of green beans). I was waiting
for the Hottop, but with it not coming, I'm still looking for something
that does a bigger batch.
If the $154 is Canadian dollars, the current exchange rate is about $1
Canadian = $0.64 US. In other words, that woiuld be a great price. I
suspect he's selling in USD. In that case, it might be viewed as high, if
it were not for the facts that (1) there aren't many HIP models out there
(been discontinued for about 5 months in anticipation of a new model that's
reportedly delayed until late 1Q03; and (2) the list price, when available,
was $129 US.
The real surprise, though, could be the charge from the shipping company
for customs clearance. I've read horror stories (can you believe anything
on the Internet) of charges in the $30-40 range. Be sure you know what's
going to happen on that score before you order.
