Sal, it works pretty decently actually, easy, yes, less intimidating and less likely to scorch the grains. They are very evenly roasted too.

I had been thinking about this as I was wondering about a coffee roaster to get the job done. I thought that was overkill. :wink:

I think it works pretty good. And you get more "popped" than with panfiring.

The best results are obtained by actually steaming and then drying the rice. The reason it doesn't puff well is that it has too little moisture.
