Anyone else have issues seeing the whole window of a thread when accessing from a mobile phone? Any fixes?

Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

Electric heat with single range burner?
dfluke
I have one of those single standalone countertop stove burners like that are on a conventional stovetop (the coiled up burner)

I need to research specs, but before I get too far, I'm wondering if this will even be a viable heat source if I had one or two of them in a air roaster which has the inlet at the bottom, like a propane setup. I'm just a bit uneducated about gas burners and thought electric might work better for my setup. I know on Sivetz and artisan roasters they use the nichrome style heat sources.

It has been a while since I've been on the forums so I'll start looking around but thought a question specific to my burner would help the most.

Thanks

If you go to; 'All Forums/Build a Roaster/Fluidbed Roaster' on this site you will find lots of information. I know stove elements have been used for roasters. However, I doubt if they are as efficient for heating air has a wire-wound unit like a laundry dryer or the more practical for roasting small loads the heat gun element.

I agree with you oldgearhead. I use a heat gun currently and it does a great job.

I'm guessing that with the more surface area, the dryer elements are more effective heating air. I didn't know if anyone else had tried before I make a prototype of my own.
