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.

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 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.

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.

This nut roaster is fairly heavy-duty with a non-stick surface that is pretty effective. It does a great job with glazing nuts and includes recipes for different types of spicy and sweet glazed versions. You can tweak one of their recipes to your liking or totally make up your own recipe by choosing your own ingredients.

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.

I bought this for my husband to use to roast coffee beans. He uses it each week and have not had any issues. We are saving up to buy a larger roaster, but if you are just starting out and want to try roasting your own coffee beans, give this a try. It is simple to use and easy to clean. Be careful when stirring it, we use large pot holders, because as the beans crack they sometimes send shells up at you and they burn.

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.
