    Air Popcorn Maker Roasting?

    How inferior is this home method to commercial roasting? Also, will using an air popper to darken already roasted beans dry out the oils? Thanks.

    with the hot air poppers you can not adjust temp...only time...

    With the new I-Roast, although I don't know if it's a "true" hot air popper, you can adjust both the time & the temperature, although it's taking me a little getting used to as the temp display on the LCD display is somewhat misleading. See the review at sweetmarias

    Another question. I have some beans that are roasted too lightly for me. Will there be degredation if I re-roast the beans (with the air popper) to make them darker as opposed to roasting only once?

    I've never tried re-roasting beans, but I find if you use slightly less of them so that they all get aggitated in the chamber then they should roast a bit more evenly, I always used to roast about 80gm in my old popper,and they came out very even in colour.
