Hi everyone. I have received my Bullet today and I have a very simple question that I dont find reading online nor the manual guide.
How should I turn off the Bullet? I know, I have to wait until the temperature is below 80ºc but it keeps making some noise (much more than when I turned on). Seems like I will damage something if I directly unplug the cable while is running.
Doesnt have any turn off button or easiest switch? Thanks, and sorry for the noob question.
Bothered me, too, that there was no ON/OFF switch. But I got over it when I added a 15A outlet box with a short extension cord and a circuit breaker. Now I have a switch to flip (the breaker) to appease that obsession (what can I say? I’m old!), plus it eliminates the need to frequently connect/disconnect from the Bullet.
Iirc, the warning about removing the plug from the wall was to minimize wear on the receptacle at the Bullet end (it’s mounted on the Bullet power board and mechanically anchored but you still put some small amount of stress on solder connections). You’ll probably still have to remove the cord when you do maintenance in order to get the roaster positioned the way you want it.
I picked up one of these so I have an On/Off switch…so that if for some reason I need to kill the power to the Bullet it can be done quickly rather than fumbling with the plug. With the child safety sockets these days (for building code reasons) it’s a harder push to plug in and harder pull to unplug.
Thanks for your responses and ideas. My second question is that if is normal than the roaster keeps sounding so much louder than when I turned it on although I wait until the temperature is below 80ºc and its ready to unplug.
I live in an area that gets more than an occasional thunderstorm. I roast in my basement where I also have an expensive table saw. I unplug both the Bullet and the saw after I’m done for the day. When I storm blows through, I don’t have to worry about a lightening strike frying some expensive pieces of equipment.
