    Re: Breville Ikon "Bakers Oven" Bread Maker

    ok, well, ive finally got to do a bit of roasting in this IKON Bread maker.
    On the Bread Dough setting, it spins in pulses for about 5 mins, i wait til thats done, then it starts spinning fast and continues to do that for about 30 seconds in one direction and then stops and spins the other direction.
    it continues to spin good like that for 25 mins standard.
    so thats perfect.

    the only thing i am wondering if anyone else has experienced is this...


    My mixing blade... basically melted!!

    I dont know if it will continue to melt more and more each time i roast or just stay like this now...

    I roasted a 3 cup roast, and then a 4 cup roast.
    Full cups of green beans, using standard cooking measurement cups.
    My scales are out of action for a while, but 3 cups filled the 500g gold coffee bag real good.

    So it was quite a large roast the second one.
    It roasted very nice, and in about 17min i think.
    I dont have a temp reader still, so im not sure how hot it was for this stirrer to melt down...

    any comments on the melting of the stirrer? (yeah its aluminium)

    All my paddles have been metal so I havent had the problem.

    You dont want melting plastic near your beans.

    Someone explained to me when I had some plastic melting near my popper that there are fumes given off by some plastics before you see them melt.

    I recommend you stop using it and make a replacement out of metal.

    Where are you?

    Pretty sure its Aluminium, doubt any plastic would have held together in that heat...

    Unless you have your HG on max and its in the 2000W territory... (e.g. 600C+) youre not going to be melting aluminium.
    Some plastics are very resistant to heat...

    Maybe its just a plastic coating thats melting Eddy...

    See if you can wire-brush it all off before your next roast or maybe use one of those rotary wire wheels. TGs right about the fumes, far better off without em adding their nuances to the flavour profile ::) ;)

    oops - my bad... ::)
    i was looking into the shaft hole and seeing metal, but it was just a metal sleeve inserted for rotation strength.
    Making a nick into it with a knife I confirmed it to be plastic! duh!
    ok, Im gonna have to toy around with ideas of how to make a metal one.
    the collapsable blade that comes with it is metal/alloy, i might be able to drill a 1mm hole through the two parts that contact and put a split pin through so it does not collapse, that would do the job.

    Might be an idea to make a new paddle out of epoxy putty which is heat resistant.

    Im not so sure Id want my beans stirred by epoxy putty until I was 100% sure it was foodsafe.

    Secondly, I once used some to patch a hole in my cars inlet manifold.
    It didnt last very long.
    It became brittle (from the heat I guess) and eventually broke away due to the engines vibrations.

    As a paddle it would be subject to a lot of vibration and direct heat.

    On a similar yet somewhat unrelated note, I accidentally roasted 400g of beans the other day in my Behmor, and left the cleaning pastry brush in the bottom of the chaff collector. Amazingly, the bristles didnt melt and it didnt smell or burn or anything.

    Did you ever sort out the melting paddle?

    I might be able to help.
