    Im sure it will turn green beans brown quite well - but the only variable is the time I think.

    It will need some Popper type modifications to control the heat - and youre going to battle to get the beans out quickly enough for a decent cooling cycle.

    For the price it may be justified for experimentation purposes.

    Looking at the drum in AMs post I would think it would be easier then the Behmor as it has a handle for you to lift out and dump in your bean cooler..

    Re: An option or not...

    couple of things to consider will be

    airflow, maybe a small fan underneath and a top vent?
    element location might scorch the beans or worse still catch the chaff on fire :o?
    will it get to temp in under 20 minutes with a little airflow?

    Still worth a go I reckon :)

    I reckon this is worth a SNOB MOD star; and that some one needs to put their hand up for it..

    If it works... Who would need a popper..

    "My Rotisserie" is 600 Watts and 230-240 voltage

    Could be a bit light on... But depending on other things... Could be a go...

    If not... Will do the odd chicken pieces.. Roasted capsicum and or other veggies etc...

    Re: An option or not...

    Interesting.....

    @ 1200w i would deffinately try it but as mentioned by others....600w may need some extra help.
    Having said that...that "extra help" may be the variable needed to speed up and slow down the roast when needed?

    Ill be staying tuned to this one...not that i need another roaster but am interested in the results :)

    Good luck AM :)

    Re: An option or not...

    Aldi will offer a Rotisserie Oven for $ 99 from Thursday the 22nd of July.
    Is this an option?
    Other advertised details:
    Convection oven, 34L capacity, Double hotplates, Four stage heating selection, 60 minute timer with bell and auto cutoff and 2200W.

    I know nothing more about this unit, but suspect that the 2200Ws may be squandered on the hot plates to an extent.
    It could be interesting if the oven was rated at 2200W or near to it.

    Behmor Coffee Roaster
    Gday Lindsay... :)

    Quite a few CSers have tried to transform a Rotisserie Oven into a Coffee Roaster and as far as I know, not many have been very successful without a hell of a lot of modification. I know Andy gave it a go a few years back and even ended up converting it to gas. If you do a search going back a fair way you should be able to pull up info on what various people have tried...

    Cheers mate ;)
