  • ALDI heat gun $19.99

    Seems like a good price to me, comes with accessories etc...

    Well timed. My Black and Decker gun (around $100) has died, for the second time and the warranty has well and truly expired. It has never gone near a coffee bean!

    Its biggest use has been "unwelding" plastic pipe joints around the swimming pool for repairs.

      I want to sulk as we do not have an Aldi in SA and I so want one of these http://www.aldi.com.au/au/html/offers/2827_4040.htm ;D

      I wish they would pull their finger out and build a couple here in Adelaide and give the big two a bit of half decent competition. Foodland is very good but they do not have the extras that Aldi gets in.

        I had one of these and it performed very well for about 30 roasts or so then the "fusible link" failed . I just couldnt be bothered trying to fix it as the link was located within the element hive and to get at it would have required my destroying same and the heatgun, so decided to put it down to experience and bought a B&D to replace it. The little B&D is doing very well....

        The Aldi HG was still within its 2 Year warranty but the nearest Aldi store is about 200Kms from where we live and the cost of petrol alone would be more than double the original purchase price. If you lived within a short drive of an Aldi though, you couldnt really go wrong as I think we may have been a bit unlucky with ours. They have a nice powerful fan and the Low-Speed/Low-Heat position is ideal for roasting small batches when the need arises, for blends of disparate bean varieties for example. They come in a tough ABS case including all the usual attachments so for the money, theyre pretty hard to beat. Id go for it.... 8-)

        Cheers,
