Despite other users' complaints, I've not had a single mechanical issue with my roaster and I've heard of others who have roasted 200+ batches with their Nescos.
My only real complaint (which I was aware of when I purchased the roaster) was the lack of adjustable roast profile, meaning you can only adjust the amount of time, not the temp.
Nonetheless, this machine is a great way to get reliable results, especially for beginners.
UPDATE: My Nesco burned out after about two years (the auger assembly gave out and the parts were more than I was willing to pay). After the experience we'd gained with the Nesco, I upgraded to the Behmor 1600, which I've now had for about three years. If people are willing to pay a bit more, I'd definitely recommend the Behmor. It's a drum roaster that is seriously built to last (I've run hundreds of batches through it already) and, while still somewhat limited, provides much more control of the roast profile.
Not a fluke... both machines experienced the same "catastrophic failure" within one year of weekly use. The pulley mechanism is poorly designed. It is coated in plastic and eventually fails; the auger stops moving, the beans overheat, which can potentially overheat and melt the control components, making the machine a fire hazard.
My experience with customer service also has been similar to others' experiences described here. You cannot order spare parts to fix the machine yourself, the machine must be returned to the manufacturer. You have to pay for shipping (both ways) and you also have to pay for the repair.
Performing a Cost Benefit Analysis, I discovered that it costs almost as much to return the machine to the manufacturer for them to replace the failed pulley mechanism (providing you caught the malfunction in time before it melted the other components) as it would to buy a new one.
"Fool me once, shame on you... Fool me twice, shame on me..."
Since I have about 10 pounds of green coffee beans sitting in my cupboard (and I am tired of drinking stale bean coffee) I am looking for a similar machine with a higher margin of safety and a low to zero a failure rate, that performs the same fit, form and function (time controlled, produces small batch, and smoke/chaff free) for around the same cost.
So... if there are any unemployed inventors who are also home-roast coffee aficionados ... you have a "niche" market here, and, by the way, if it was made here in the USA that would ROCK! :)

Pulley that drives the auger melted within 6 months. Nesco wont sell parts to individuals, requires machines be shipped to them for repair and will not give cost estimate. Read morePublished 7 days ago by kellydeanledgerwood
