Looks like I can spend more to upgrade my HotTop

Check out http://www.ielogical.com/coffee for instructions on making a
HotTop fully controllable for far less than the upgrade

I think you could add a pid device into the machine ,which is anther
option and would not cost you so much . What the negative is you need
manualy set the temperture at every stage when roasting. But my point
is that a saveable curve is not very necessary for a roaster. For every
type of bean has its suitabe roast curve which is different.
I think the pid is not very expensive in China.It is about 20~30USD.But
as I know it would be 100~200USD in some place which is very strange.

I agree the $ is a lot, but it's a great option at this retail level.
This is the only one I know of that allows you to control the roast
curve for this price.
