Hottop announced the addition of an emergency ejection knob to both of their models and has modified the model numbers to designate them as such. The new model numbers are KN-8828B-2 and KN-8828P-2 (note the -2 addition). While this announcement has just become formalized, roasters purchased from us since summer have had this latest emergency feature. Added strictlyas a safety measure, the knob protrudes from the rear of the roaster.
Hottop notes that while emergencies are quite rare, situations can arise such as power failures, which would cause the coffee to sit in a hot drum. Pulling the ejection knob will get them out. Read the applicable sections of the Hottop owner’s manual for complete usage information.
