Whirley better alternative?
Whirley pop aren't so popular in Europe, so I'll ask here: how is this Popsmith significantly better than a Whirley pot ?

Does this superiority could help to create a better coffee roaster too ?
For one, I could use it on my induction stove top. That seems to be it other than I could see it in my cabine due to odd colors

Unsure about not burning, my big burner tends to have a high heat area 1" wide at a 6" diameter
Would need to see if the beans will tumble or not.

They make a version of cheap roaster like my Cafemasy that uses a blade like the one in that popper and it tumbles the beans well, videos of the smaller roasts look good. It has a honey comb base that I think helps catch the bean to get it to tumble though.

I think this roaster might just push the bean if on the flat surface but changing speed and direction might help alleviate that issue?
