Default Devardi Mini Bead Annealer

Wondering if anyone has used this annealer and if so, what do you like or don't like?

I tried it and returned it. Manually ramping down/holding the temp for upwards of 6 hours turned out to be not doable for us.

I have it and use it. The price was the reason why I got it and the possibility to use it as a rodwarmer once I was ready to buy a proper kiln. It is not my favourite product in my studio but I have learner to live with it. I always batchanneal since it is quite tricky to balance in the mandrels without the beads sticking to eachother or walls. And yes, the manual ramping up and down is truly a pain. Still glad I have it though.

If I could have afforded to keep it, I would love to use it as a rod warmer now. Seriously, a rod warmer would save me 5 minutes per bead. Maybe I'll ask for a rod warmer for Xmas.
