I'm looking to buy a used roaster with a 2 to 6 kilo capacity. It seems these days it's difficult to find a used roaster and the used ones I've seen come on the market look pretty weathered for the asking price. I've heard that every roaster is unique in its roasting variables. I don't mind paying for quality but would prefer a vintage or antique style of design. I have some questions and would appreciate some feedback from some of you who are more experienced in the industry.

1) Is the extra money for a brand new roaster really worth it?

2) What brand is the best value for the quality?

3) Which would be the most visually appealing models without compromising function?
