  • Wannabe KKTO Home Roasters...

    BigW have got a Turbo Oven (looks like the Quartz Halogen element variety) coming up on special as from the 30th of June...

    Might be worth a look....

    Thats a fantastic price for a turbo oven
    By the looks of it. The more popular they are the cheaper they get

    They are also very good for chicken roast   :-*

      Does anyone have experience of using both Halogen and Rigid element Turbo Ovens. If so, what are the pros and cons for the two different types?

      I would imagine that Halogen ovens would have more direct radiant energy, and would respond to power changes more quickly?

        I have only used the solid element thus far for over 400 roasts and counting
        I like the idea of the light in the halogen units

          BB, have used and own both, currently using the halogen one. Reacts more quickly to the thermostat & temp changes. The light is a HUGE plus. If I had to buy another TO I would be buying the halogen type again.

            Thanks KK and Steve,

            I put a lamp on the side of my TO (solid element type) to get consistent lighting inside, so I can see how the light from the halogen would be good, but doesnt the halogen switch on and off with the thermostat?

            I suspect that like KK my TO will last hundreds of roasts but if there is some reason to change it’s only $40. The unit Mal linked to doesn’t seem to have the extender ring, which I think is useful.

              The element stays on up until the 1C region then I drop the temp and it cycles on & off. It is on enough of the time to keep an eye on the colour changes and you always have the ambient lighting. I also first brought the solid type and when I found these on sale for around $60 I thought why not. For $40 I dont think there ia a decision to make.........just do it . My solid type sits in the cupboard as a back up :

                Found another option in Woolworths Supermarket today. $40 halogen but instead of the glass pot a SS pot (they also have a glass pot version for $40).
                Since the TO is a neat fit in the top of the large SS pot, I am now looking to find a SS stock pot / pasta set to fit neatly into the large pot.

                  I dont think they make a 32mm insert however I didnt look into the commercial range available

                  The stainless steel  type of TO will suit the original KKTO design

                  Same rules apply with volume ect

                    I saw yesterday in the delivered junk mail that Homeart have their halogen lamp ovens going out for either $29.00 or $39.00 :-/. I would be grabbing a spare if I didnt already have one.

                      Well I went and purchased a halogen Turbo Oven
                      Borat sent me a PM on a 24 hour special as a heads up

                      Now I will be roasting with "light"
                      When I get around to it  : as its a spare for now

                          I have seen turbo ovens with a stainless steel pot.

                          would this be simple to work with compared to a glass pot?

                            This stainless steel type will only suit the older KKTO design roaster
                            Same concept but diferent and more complicated build

                            See the video above

                              I have seen turbo ovens with a stainless steel pot.
                              I have used one of these for my version and as KK has said construction is a bit different to the standard KKTO.

                              I think the pot size is a bit larger than what has been determined to be optimal but I find this is only a problem when doing larger batches.

                              Some pics of mine are in this thread: http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1310730958
