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.
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 tried the spiced glazed pecans with a bit of orange juice in the mix. They were lovely. Sugary glazed nuts are a treat and I'm probably going to make up a bunch in pretty Christmas jars to give away this season.
For healthier nuts, I also made my own version of Rosemary Almonds. I have lots of fresh rosemary growing around the house. The first batch that I made, I just added about a tablespoon of chopped rosemary leaves to the 1.5 cups of whole raw almonds as I roasted them on the stovetop. They were good, but the rosemary flavor was barely noticeable. The second batch (same amount of almonds), I first put the almonds into a bag with a few full sprigs of rosemary. I then rolled the bag around on the counter and between my hands for a couple of minutes...not enough to damage the almonds...but enough to bruise the rosemary leaves so that they'd release some of their oils on the nuts. I heated about a teaspoon or two of olive oil in the roaster, tossed in the almonds (minus the sprigs of rosemary), and added a scant tablespoon of chopped rosemary leaves and a sprinkling of sea salt also. I roasted the almonds until they darkened slightly and the almond smell became strong (but don't burn them). Much healthier than the sugary glazed nuts...but still quite tasty.
I'm planning on trying this roaster for coffee beans. A variety pack of green coffee beans has been ordered and I'll give it a try when they arrive.Read more ›
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.

It works, but wish it were heavier duty and would coat the nuts betterPublished 5 months ago by Thomas A. Loeppke
First of all, it is an aluminum pan. Aluminum has a low resistance to thermal fatigue and will warp due to thermal cycling. Read morePublished 10 months ago by jomyer

I use this as a coffee roaster. It roasts the beans more evenly than regular pan roasting. I'd rather use this method than an air roaster... roast up to a full pound at a time. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Bob Bledsoe
