Bottom Line: Good little machine, easy to use, and well worth the price, particularly if you get a green coffee bundle deal
Positive Product Points

Easy to use, does what it say it will do!   Just read the manual..  Not a big manual at all. Easy to program, just understand the whole roasting process to get the full advantage of this machine..  It took me a few roasts to get it down.

Negative Product Points

Vent attachment isnt worth a damn..    Use outdoors or under a hood.  You can only roast a couple of batches a day .. Noisey

Detailed Commentary

I never roasted my own coffee before; I read up on roasting and looked for as much as I could in regards to the i-Roast roasters. Once I understood what it was I was doing, I attempted my first roasts,  

Presets 1 and 2.. are not very good.   SO I figured out my own profiles using all the information I found on roasting.   I now roast about 4 to 5 batches a week, I love it. I only wish I could roast a little more, but I canít see spending $600 for Ĺ lb roasters so my i-roast 2 does me well and was well worth the price.

It is noisy, but you can hear first and 2nd crack and the chamber contents are visible so you can really make a nice roast

Buying Experience

Got it as a gift, but I have had to deal with the Hearthware's people nd they are very nice!
