Air fryer with cage rotisserie
I noticed that Kogan are selling a Turbo Oven style cooker, which has a horizontal rotisserie built in, with what looks for all the world like a basket to roast beans in. Anyone given it a go to see if it works for coffee? I figured for $100 someone might have given it a go
hey mate have a look at this thread its the same oven from kmart i've been following it but not sure whether to do this or get a behmor or gene cafe
I fry with a very similar air fryer. It took a lot of modification, but the results are excellent! I followed the guide which was posted here:
This particular style of air fryer isnt on Kogan any longer, but ebay still has them for $100ish
If you're handy and have a number of hours to spend on this then i give it the big thumbs up
I have been reading up on kkto bean roasters. There is some awesome builds on them.
Would be interesting to see the op roaster in action.
Dimitry eBay item number^
That looks interesting! I was meaning this one though...
I have one of the original beta testing KKTO's, and apart from a recent extended rest during a renovation, it's been doing a great job for quite a few years. My latest efforts around it are to try and get the 800gm to 1kg roast times under 27mins! The beans are still pretty good going for a reasonable light roast, which works really well in my Leva, but it's a bit of a dull process - just let it do it's thing til the target temp is reached and then dump. 400gm there's a lot more flexibility, and I can get down around 16 to 17 mins or so, and can adjust more readily.
That looks excellent - exactly what I was thinking!
As a KKTO user I can highly recommend the design but be warned that they somewhat tricky to master. I strongly encourage adding a switch to bypass the thermostat (else it always comes in at crucial times) and separating the heating and fan elements so you can control the heating element with a Variac (this is on my todo list).

I bought one of these (exact Kogan model) a few months back for this same purpose
Finally a couple of weeks ago got organised with beans etc and "had a crack"
They Work very well
Burnt the first lot (300g at 21 mins) waiting to hear the second crack ... not an expensive exercise at about $3.60
have done numerous batches since all about the 17- 18 min mark ... I watch with a powerful torch and go by eye now
A little uneven with the roast but the taste is superb
I might add another agitation fin or two in the cylinder to see if that's better ... or I could just go smaller batches
This is great. Love it. When I first upgraded from my popcorn maker I was going to take an old tumble dryer and put it on top of a BBQ...thought the resale value wouldnt be that great though so decided to get the real deal.
