Gene and Behmor advice to offer...
So, I've been roasting for 6 months, now. I use both the Behmor 1600 and Gene Cafe (a HUGE SHOUT OUT to Ginny for the gently used and wonderful equipment). Having received some excellent advice from both Ginny, Eddie, and many others on roasting. I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring on advice giving.

After the birth of our little boy on the 13th (yep, I just needed to say that as a very proud and thrilled dad), I began really studying my roasters and discovered the true quantity of power required to allow these machines to work for all their worth.

Behmor: This powerhouse takes 15amps of power. That means 1 dedicated circuit off your breaker box. It will work much better if nothing else is competing against it.

Gene: While not as electric sucking as the Behmor, this machine also requires quite a bit: 10amps.

To give you a frame of reference, the average full size refrigerator/freezer requires 5-6amps.

That said, Make sure you give your machines the power they need, and they and your circuits will have much longer life spans, and your roasters will operate much more effectively, as I am currently experiencing this evening.
