So my Poppery 1 came today. Unfortunately my SM beans won't be here until Monday. Is there a certain way I should be cleaning or sanitizing this thing before I use it. I couldn't find any info.  It shows some signs of use in its previous life but it's not filthy or anything like that.

I can't wait to start roasting!!

You might want to wipe out the interior of the roast chamber with a slightly damp sponge. This would help remove possible chemical contamination (like if someone had spilled some Drano in there)!

As far as actual "sanitizing" (eliminating microbial contamination) is concerned, I would not worry about it at all. Roasting temperatures are way higher than pathogens can withstand.

Hi Goldensncoffee,

+1 to what Andy said.

I just want to add that you have about the most hackable air roaster there is.  The motor is a 115 Volt universal motor so you can separate the motor and heater with relative ease.  A router control such as they sell at Harbor Freight will work for your heater control.

Search this form and Sweet Maria's website for stuff on your Poppery. There is a lot of info.

You will need a chimney fairly soon.  You will soon melt the clear plastic popcorn chute roasting coffee.

Phil

Thanks for the advice guys. I have a few specific questions I'm going to ask in a different post.
