Prices of drums from Coffee Roasters Club range from about $75 to almost $3,900, as of March 2015. Price depends upon the style, capacity and material. The most expensive models are barbecue grills with drum roasters.
The roasters hold from one to 20 pounds. One hundred percent stainless steel roasters are more expensive for their size. Less costly models are heavy duty aluminum or a mixture of aluminum and stainless steel.
Roasters are available for free-standing rotisseries or grills with rotisserie units. If a grill does not have a rotisserie, one must be purchased in order to use a roaster. Gas grills are recommended because heat regulation is faster. While some roasters are suitable for private use, others are large and sturdy enough for commercial purposes.
