    New Corretto Advice

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello, I'm really interested in building a corretto set up for the first time. I have been reading through the forums and try to piece it all together, and it seems like I have a good handle on it. I'm wanting more info on good bread makers. I read the thread some one starting but all the ones available to me locally are not listed. I'm from the US and it seems this community is international so your brands may be hard for me to find. The ones I can get my hands on easy are Oster and West bend. Anyone familiar with any of these?

    Also for a heat gun I'm looking at getting a Wagner 500 series. Again anyone familiar with the durability of these?

    Sorry if this is a repetitive question. And thanks for any advice.

    The models used in AUS are 220v while the US is 110v, hence why they are not available in the US.

    My son in law lives in MD, he roasts regularly on a Corretto, pretty sure his bread maker is a converted single loaf Panasonic, will check when next I talk to him.

    He uses a Bosch variable temp, variable air flow heat gun, important features in my opinion.

    Just made contact.

    Bread maker is a Welbilt single loaf, don't think they are made anymore, any single loaf machine will do the job, the simpler the better, I bypassed the electronics on mine and wired the motor directly, so that its either on or off, no pulsing etc, also disconnected the heating element.

    His heat gun is a Wagner 4500.

    I've seen his setup in operation, simple and does a good job.

    Ok. Ill look around for something simple. I found a West Bend programable, its not simple but is has 2 paddles in it like a lot of the brevilles i see others on here with. There are some Oster's available that are pretty simply machines. The wagner 4500 and 500 are basically same thing i think. Thanks for the info. Any other advice would be great if any one knows the American machines.
