peveleth, It is better if you start a post in the forum with your question. These shouts go away in time.

For Gene Cafe Roasters I have an older Gene Cafe Roaster. Temp fluctuates probably showing age. Question: For recent owners of the newer Gene Cafe Roaster, your opinions?

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!

Low fat fryer for heating
Wiz Kalita
I'm looking into building a TC, and most of the turbo oven-like devices I see are low fat fryers. It looks similar enough to the halogen ovens popular in the US, but I've never used one and I don't know if it's quite the same thing. The temperature dial on one I'm looking at goes up to 250°C, and the heating is 1300 W, but I'm not sure if it's all from the halogen heating elements or if any heat is provided by spraying hot oil. Any experiences?
Wiz Kalita attached the following image:
No spray, is the classic oven lid we all are basing our builds.

You could also get a Sunpentown version fitted with carbon fiber FIR instead halogen tube, better results with IR + convection instead convection majoritar heating.
More expensive at about $60 lid only, as spare part, but the digital control unit will save you all the electronics you need to buy for the heater control, temperature measurement and timer

Thanks. Do you know if there is a significant difference between the regular oven lids and the ones for cheap oil fryers like the one in my picture? I suspect some of them are basically convection ovens plus a nozzle that can be disconnected. I don't think Sunpentown is available in Europe but I'll keep my eyes out for IR ovens.
The one in your picture is not for oil frying !
It is for hot air convection.
Oil frying are completely closed metal cases, with a large bowl for some 2-3 liters of oil for deep immersion of the food to be fried.

If you mean the small glass with the black cap in the left of your picture is an oil sprayer, then it is for manual usage, not something automatic inside oven during roast.
If I assumed right, then the lid is standard, there is no need for special oil resistance build, because oil is on food, not in the hot air.

This machine is being sold as a low fat fryer similar to the ones from Philips, but if the oil has to be applied manually I guess they're basically the same device. Immersion deep fryers are entirely different of course, although I suppose they could work as well if you have an oil that survives the high temperature ... First crack would be very dangerous, though.
