Bottom Line: Good value for a quiet "starter" roaster that produces small batches -- fast.
Mike Burman (quality: 4.2) 09.23.2005 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: It's a hyper-responsive, somewhat tempermental, hands-on and yet very lovable roaster.
Brian Withnell (quality: 5.0) 02.21.2004 Rating: 7.2

Jon Stout (quality: 9.5) 06.13.2010 Rating: 7.8
Product Reviewed: Fresh Roast SR500
Bottom Line: This is a much better roaster than the old Plus 8 and a better option than a hot air popper because it is built to take the heat and has more control, as well as a chaff collector and a timer.
