  • Popper recommendations?

    Hi All,

    I'm really keen to give roasting a try. I've searched the forums but haven't found a succinct list (maybe there isn't one) of poppers that are recommended to try with roasting. Is any basic popper (from BigW, Target, etc) with side vents suitable? I see a lot of info on modding - I'm not particularly technically inclined. Can you get by with just the popper as is? Otherwise, what are the minimum modifications to make to improve the chances of a good roast?

    Thanks everyone.

    G'day Paul,
    I don't know if you've already seen it, but have a look through this 'sticky' thread. It has some good information in it.
    Pretty much any popper will do, there's not a lot of variation in their construction. Go for a cheap one, that way you can see if you like the concept without spending up too much.

      I recommend calling charity stores (Good Sammys, Salvos etc). Money goes to a good cause and you'll pay next to nothing.

        Home roasting is a turning point. It's what turned coffee from "a drink" into a hobby for me.

        A popper is a great way to start

        And a hobby into an obsession!
