Hi YJ... Pictures or it never happened :D

Right no worries.  I have a few photos.
I am trying now to  upload.

FYI I will be out of the country for 10 days from Sunday for any serious interest will have to wait until then.

what would the price on this roaster be and does it need to be flued in?

I did a review on a Hottop back in 2005 and they forgot to charge me for the roaster...well not forgetting but the review got a lot of coverage for them and they were delighted. I did keep waiting for the invoice but it never arrived.

12 years on it is still working. It is dead simple to use and always gives a good result, it is hard to fault, except for the price which is rather high but it is a great product. I've never had a single problem in that time, just replaced filters thats all.

They're a rather small volume roaster for the price are they not?

At 400g the new Behmor is really quite amazing.  KBean had it delivered to my door within the week (Melbourne to Brisbane) which is remarkable service!  I've only done a couple of roasts but this little roaster is a category killer :D

The Behmoor is 1/4 the price of a Hottop but they aren't as user friendly.

A hottop is dead simple. The downside is the price. I can view the beans as they roast.

250g is what I do in the hottop.

I have never used the Behmoor but from memory 250 grams is what my brother does in one.

Price is an important consideration and the Behmoor does the job.

Spot on IG.  Having had the old Behmor and now the new one, I use to do 500g well in the old Behmor when it was new.  As it aged I dropped it to 400g and interestingly the new one recommends 400g also.
