You're right on Timothy, I roasted the first batch on Thanksgiving, so just about a month ago.
The roaster is working great. I did receive a hefty claim settlement from the freight company for the damages that they caused.
As most people pointed out, something could show up later that isn't apparent now, so I put the claim money into a "just in case" account.
My roastery is in an industrial setting (not open to the public), so the dents and scratches are just an annoyance to me. If it were in my bar in the view of customers, I would take a different stance on the cosmetic damages.
