I don't know, it seems weird to me that a pizza joint would roast their own coffee. I would go with something more pizza related, like a flour sifter or cheese grater.

My husband worked at pizza shops for many, many years (starting when he was 13) and he had never seen anything like this. But after careful examination, he votes cheese grater...you would put the big block of cheese in the bottom and then put the tumbler on top - as you would turn it, the cheese would grate into the tumbler and due to the long slits on the side, it would slide down as the cheese block got smaller and smaller. Then you'd remove it and empty it through the hatch.

Maybe it has nothing to do with pizza and the pizza parlor owners bought it as part of an auction lot, not unlike Boffer who ended up with it at auction. I believe it is a coffee roaster. Wish it was mine. Wink Try roasting some coffee and tell us if it works... yummm, fresh roast coffee... Very Happy

Post  Wyldflower on 4/3/2010, 11:11 am

Maybe this will resolve the question of whether it's a grater or a roaster: Do the holes have an indentation that would 'catch' on the cheese to grate it? Or are the holes smooth and flush with the metal of the drum?

Wonder if you'll ever find out for sure what it is? I was just throwing in my guess (coffee roaster part) like everyone else. Don't suppose there is any wording or numbers engraved on it somewhere?

I guess you could always email someone on that sweetmarias.com site! I'll bet some of those coffee fanatics would love to have your whatsit, even even it is not a roaster drum. Look at this page...these guys either have too much time on their hands or they've been chewing on too many of those coffee beans!:

http://www.sweetmarias.com/homemade-homeroasters.php

Now about that salad spinner...were you joking or are you really looking for a good one? :o) Not sure I'd use a metal one. Metal has a tendency to make lettuce rust./oxidize. I have a large and small Oxo brand -- love them! Very efficient at getting the water off lettuce and greens. I love that it has a brake too.

I'm thinking an old style roaster that was just on display. Hence no burn marks.

If it doesn't work out as a salad spinner, my wife said the drum would be perfect for blanching veggies at canning time.

It's a coffee roaster. I was waiting for a photo that was going to prove it - at least mighty close to proving it - but I believe the person who told me they had the back-up photo was pulling my leg. However, I still believe the rest of the story we got, ending up with aforementioned coffee roaster.

Now, how are you going to turn it into a planter?

But I don't want to roast coffee!! I want to dry salad with it!! I told my wife if we can't turn it fast enough by hand to dry salad, I'll put a motor on it! :idea:

It still seems strange to me that the housing the drum sits in has no holes in it.

Anybody know what temperatures coffee is roasted at?

From Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffee_roasting

"Indirect-fired roasters are roasters in which the burner flame does not contact the coffee beans, although the combustion gases from the burner do contact the beans. Direct-fired roasters contact the beans with the burner flame and the combustion gases."

With no holes in the shroud, I just don't see the temps getting to 450 degrees inside the basket.

the same page also says

"In larger operations, bags of green coffee beans are hand or machine-opened, dumped into a hopper, and screened to remove debris."

I would be more inclined to think it's a screener of beans.
