  • My New Turbo

    I was looking for something to do so decided to build a new roaster.

    Basically the same principle a my old one with a few refinements I am very pleased with the results and the roasts are spot on..

    The paster set and extra boiler came from Kmart and they go together perfectly  heres a few pics...

    Cheers Gra..

      That twin agitator blade looks like a Ninja weapon (insert Ninja sound here)

      You were one of the first converts to this design Gra and you have found it to be reliable enough to stick with the same principle

      Keep on roasting on [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

        Like they say if it aint broke dont fix it ;D So I just fine tuned the build a bit and changed the agitator and made the motor shaft drop in with out pinning for ease of unloading I can now lift the basket out with out a drama..

          Sorry if I havent seen your previous design, but what is the heating method in that? Is that just a standard deep fryer, or a pressure cooker???

              Thanks for the link. Its good to see that the halogen heating is working well. I have an unlimited supply of halogen heaters at my disposal, so this gives me promise of making an array of them in a quite different design. Looks like my weekend will be a write off.....

                  who said that KK? they must be crazy! ;D

                  Great looking setup there Gra, love the extractor fan! have you insulated between the inner and outer pot? what sort of quantities are you getting out of her, and what times are you hitting FC?

                    The extractor fan is a great idea. Staring into the glass, through the smoke and burning eyes Id often said Id build one...

                    Doesnt the the lower grill SUCK air in, and the upper vents EXTRACT?

                    On my TO, I only seem to notice the smoke exiting via the upper grill.

                    Does your extractor cover both?

                      Hi Warren ( good to see you back Mate)

                      Yes on the insulation I raped with a fire blanket then insulwool I had for the garage ceiling works fine..I have only done 4 roasts so far at 600g first crack is in the 11--12min around the same as the old unit.

                      I have picked up some Insulbrite that I will roll up to make a collar for the top of the basket which is the only part not insulated it will be interesting to see if it makes a differance.

                      I thing all Turbos work the same re:the airflow as for dose it work a big YES ;D it has made roasting in doors more pleasant no more smoke filled garage and very little after smell if any and the big benefit is I can roast with the doors closed if the winds up..

                      Cheers gra..

                        That vent looks like it will suck a brain of an alien into the next dimension. ;D
                        A very good idea as you have said about roasting indoors, as the gold coast would i presume get its fair share of inclement weather, as well as away from prying eyes of the neighbours.

                            Hi. Just a question for you guys who have been brave enough to go the turbo oven route.  I initially was going to go the convection oven route, you know, the ones that have a rotisserie and can grille, bake, etc.  But noticed that Andy tried the Aldi unit many years back and found that it lacked the ability to build up and maintain good heat depth.  So with this turbo unit, is it good enough to provide the necessary heat to roast coffee beans successfully?  Also, do you need to preheat the unit or do you just put the beans into the cold unit and then turn it on?  Ive researched the site the best I could and did not find the answers that Im seeking!

                            By the way, I bought my turbo oven the other day for $41 - delivered.  Last night I cooked frozen chips and within 20 minutes they were cooked very evenly.  Today, I cooked spinach and ricotta filled pastry parcels (the pastry was frozen and raw).  I put them into the cold oven, sprayed them with olive oil spray, turned it onto around 200 (packet said to preheat your oven to 250!) and in a round 20 minutes they were fully cooked throughout and were puffed - top and bottom.  

                            Thanks
