I would send the item back if I hadn't thrown out the box.

After the third use I attempted to slightly reduce the gap between the paddles and the surface of the pan by bending them, and one of the veins broke completely off.

This makes it very easy to evenly roast seeds, nuts and coffee beans.

I use a Behmor Home Coffee Roaster + 8 pounds coffee + free small grid roaster for my usual coffee roasting, but have one of these "nut roasters" to use for small batches and experimenting. I roast my decaf, needed only for parties to have a regular and decaf option, with the roaster and also fiddle around with roasting in parchment and trial batches. Works well with not too much cleanup required. Oh yeah, and it works well for glazing nuts as well.

I generally stick a thermometer into the beans at least a couple of times during the roasting process, but otherwise just use this roaster and a cup or so of green coffee beans. Roast by ear, listen for the first and second crack, and roast by eye/color.

I bought this for my retired dad to roast coffee in. It works GREAT for this porpose. The hardware used in the construction is top quality... Burly even... Not to mention that the non-stick surface doesn't get dirty AT ALL with coffee -- he's happy it won't need to be cleaned but maybe every dozen times.

It only takes ~8 minutes to roast green coffee to "second crack". I'm sure some automatic roasters can be more "consistant" but with this pan's dual-paddles, the coffee comes out remarkably consistant and at verry little effort.

If there is such a person as a nut-aholic, that's me! I love nuts and they're nutritious, too. In the past, glazed nuts have always been special occasion treats, bought in small jars or cellophane bags and doled out sparingly. No more!

The Back to Basics Nut Roaster easily glazes all my favorites - almonds, pecans, walnuts, cashews in a quick ten minutes on top of the stove. The roaster itself looks a bit like a deep fry pan with a mixing handle in the center. All I do is put the roaster on our electric cook top over medium high and then add nuts, glaze mixture (more about that later) and specified amount of water to pan. Then, simply rotate the mixing handle until the moisture is gone. I pour the nuts onto a non-stick cookie sheet to cool. If any stick together they're easily separated with a wooden spoon while they're hot.

Now for the promised glaze info: We really like the Back To Basics Toffee and Cinnamon glazes. For either of these we use 2 cups nuts, 3/4 Cup of glaze and 3 Tablespoons of water. Delish!

This past holiday season we gave neighbors and friends jars of glazed nuts for which we received thanks and compliments galore. We also try to keep some on hand in an air tight container for drop-in guests but, to be honest, more often then not they're for us.

Enjoy!

This is something of a gimmick item. I was looking for a nut roaster 3 years ago and
this kept coming up as the only one to get. So finally I bought it and it basically is for
using pre-made bottled flavorings full of sugar and spices and this thing sort of mixes them all around the pan so that the flavorings get applied well to the nuts. I don't want that. I want a nut roaster period. Yes I tried to use it for that but Almonds especially bunch up and you have to reverse directions with the stir handle and when you do that the handle sometimes unscrews itself and there you are. And when the nuts get caught up under the stir rod they can also burn before you can manage to unstick. I found it does not do a good job of keeping all the nuts evenly in contact and turning to avoid contact with the heat instead many of the nuts on the bottom do not get stirred up and around either. Basically if you want to sugar coat nuts maybe this works. But for me I do a better job doing small batches of nuts in a cup in the microwave than trying to manage small or larger amounts in this thing. I've given up trying to make this pan work out. It doesn't cut it as a nut roaster any way which way you turn it.

I bought one of these for my husband a few years ago and he looked stumped. After a few batches, he is the hero. It washes easily. We ordered two more for gifts for friends. They, also, love theirs. We have had ours for about 4 years now and still love it. The roasted nuts make a great gift for co-workers and friends.

I have spent a small fortune on an addiction to roasted cinnamon nutz at fairs, hockey games or craft fairs... Not any more.. with this roaster and purchase of the Cinnamon Nut Glaze by Back to Basics... I make my own and they taste EXACTLY if not BETTER than those that I have purchased. THIS is a wonderful product for those who want to make something special for friends and family for the holidays or whenever. You will not be disappointed!

I don't know about roasting nuts - that's not why I bought this. But for roasting coffee, this works very well! I've roasted 4 oz and 12 oz batches, and all roasts have been perfectly even and delicious. The only issue is that beans frequently are caught in the spaces between the blades and the sides of the pan. When this happens they can usually be dislodged by jiggling the crank (careful not to lift up on the crank - it's only held down by gravity), shaking the pan or banging it down on the burner, but sometimes they're stubborn and I keep a butter knife on hand for pushing the stuck beans out. Actually you don't have to dislodge the stuck beans at all - it just makes turning the crank harder, but not all that hard. The only time you really must dislodge the bean is when beans are stuck on one side only, which pushes the blade on the other side into the pan, where it scrapes the wall. A mechanically inclined person might solve the problem completely by filing about 1/8 inch off the outside of the turned up portions of the blades (the surfaces facing the side walls of the pan). If the space were made a little wider by doing that, then beans shouldn't get stuck in that space.
