Personally, right now I don't think it's the roasting equipment that's holding me back. I think
it's mostly ape running the roaster. Of course, I'd consider a nicer roaster, but i can't see
going for ...

So yes, the turbo oven absolutely makes it better. WAY better. I would have done it sooner, but
this life of mine only lets me move forward so fast on the hobbies. Anyway, I'm loving this new
