    Dont buy a new one, there are so many sitting in cupboards not being used just waiting to be turned into Correttos and leading a useful life!!
    You should be able to pick one up for around $30ish. I have a Breville and have not needed to modify it for roasting, it cuts out after 20 minutes but Ive only had that happen once doing a really slow roast and that was my fault.

    Cash Converters & thrift shops are a good source of BMs at around $30
    Anecdotal reports say that Panasonic, Sunbeam & Breville are a good BMs

    Have you considered the Turbo Oven design??

    Concur with not buying one new

    I found a near brand new breville BB410 programmable one in Vinnies for $30. RRP of that machine or current equivalent is $269.

    I call that a double bonus ;)


    ...always happy to help a good cause and not a fan of Crime Converters...
