Note to believers: on sale at Sur La Table for $129 (vs $199 MSRP). Same price at Amazon, by the way.
The burning question: What will the MD price be, and how much longer will you have to wait for it????

Wake up--It's a trendy gimmick brought to you buy the same people who told folks forty-years ago they could cook a Thanksgiving turkey in their microwave! You can, of course, but what's the point? Two-step cooking is one step too many.

Yup, I‘m in the same minimalist camp as you when in comes to buying junk that is just that. I just think the sous vide cookers may be a little different than the trash on infomercials. I think the average buyer of this item is genuinely interested in making high quality food, as opposed to convenience like others you’ve referenced. It’s a well established cooking method that previously would have been tough, or at least inconvenient to use in a home. That said, there is an even more minimalisitc approach to sous vide without this device: heat water to 160ish degrees, out water in a well insulated cooler, put meat in a watertight ziplock, “suck” the air out by submerging the bag into the water just to the opening of the bag, toss bag into the hot water, cover, wait like 2 hours and voila... perfectly, evenly cooked meat. It all has to do with specific heat of water and efficient heat transfer vs air (convection). The energy required should actually be less than an oven or grill, that is once the water is heated. The temps used are not much higher than the finishing temp of the meat. Also, no evaporation of lovely juices! See? Science! I believe in it as much as I do climate change and live a lifestyle as such. So, no, your garbage heap pic is not theoretical, although the notion that I (or many like me) are actively contributing to it via sous vide cooking is a little alarmist imo. Ironically, I did buy a vacuum sealer and use it for sous vide. Now THAT thing is a POS that may tip the scales to ending the earth after I throw it away.

You know, I just may try that ;- )
Looking forward to it!!
I really want to know how to remotely turn this on from my phone. Has anyone come across any solutions?

Depends if it's bluetooth or wifi. If it's bluetooth use a computer or laptop with bluetooth. If it's wifi it just has to be on the same network. But it has to be on and not sleeping. Install an Android emulator on the computer (Android Studio, Bluestacks, Genymotion, whatever), install the Anova app onto it, set it up to talk to the unit.
Then set up your preferred remote access app. If you use Chrome you can use Chrome Remote Desktop. There's always VNC and its varients, Splashtop, many more. Use that to access your computer from wherever, to access the Android emulator, to access the unit.
These are used for cheaper cuts of meat but great on high dollar cuts also very slow way to cook but does well but worth the wait
Looks like the deal is live now: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/anova-wifi-sous-vide. After shipping costs, it looks to be a $20 savings over Amazon which seems like a good deal.
Any update on when this is expected to happen? I'm pretty excited to see what Massdrop comes up with on this one since it's been on the list of "must have but can't afford at the moment" items for some time.
Heefty
Hi Heefty! The drop will happen in the next two weeks. Keep checkin' back!
OK, so just found this deal yesterday and decided to with for Massdrop.
Newest WiFi version was at $142, please come thru with a better price for that version!

Hi Chimi - the WiFi price on Amazon has never dropped below it's current price of $169 (in 2017). If WiFi was selling for $142, it was through a reseller and not from Anova - this means the product could be damaged, outside of it's warranty, etc. Definitely check the seller before purchasing!
If this meets my expectations of a "deal" then this is an instant buy.
I hope you can offer us a good price on them. I have one waiting in my Amazon wish list for ages. Also, hope you include suitable bags with the drop.
I got a great deal on this thing at Black Friday last year, 60% off. Hopefully they offer a pretty good discount here as well, since they've proven they're willing to offer deep discounts.

I just bought the bluetooth model last month, so now I’m anxious to see what the deal will be on Massdrop.
How does the warranty work since you were just bought out?
jheinrichs79
Anova offers a 1 year full warranty
this will be great. i've wanted too try one of these for a while now.

I'm not allowed to say, but it'll be within the month :)
sarahatanova
Having an idea about the time frame is fair enough. Thank you very much. ;)
Nice, a home sous vide, have an European delivery?
I love mine. Best kitchen purchase I ever made.
LOL. Massdrop deleting comments again. Can't take criticism about their horrible prices that aren't even deals.

I have mentioned this MANY times on various different products and have not gotten any feedback even once... Most of the time it is ignored or my comment gets deleted. I remember it happening on the DXracer office chair drop and some other smaller drops.

Maybe it depends on how you say it ;)
Can it do celsius as well or just american degrees? And is it suitabe or available in 230V?

I have one - can be set to either C or F. But is 110-120V. I think there is a 230V available but can't say about the drop. The last coupon from Anova was $50 off of msrp on bluetooth edition.
Note that Electrolux is agreed to acquire Anova. Not sure how that affects matters.

I have an Anova generation 1 (the original, built-like-a-brick-shithouse model), and it's switchable between centigrade and fahrenheit, and it works fine in Japan (100 V, 50 Hz).
On the other hand, sous vide is overhyped. Like slow cookers and pressure cookers, you'll find it's good for a very small number of things. For me, being able to make onsen tamago eggs is the one thing I use it for now. If you like super rare meat, it's good, but why does the temperature of the entire slab of meat have to be the same exact temperature? In Japan we can eat beef, and even chicken, raw, because of better sanitation controls in production, so we just cook meat lightly if we like it really rare. And sous vide vegetables are just a waste of time. Summary: There's a strong placebo factor at work among sous vide advocates.
I love mine! I make chicken thighs every Sunday and shred them in a mixer once they're done and then use that in meals for the week. I cook rice with the juice left in the bag also.
My favorite thing that I have made so far was an 11lb brisket. Next up will be an attempt at: http://www.seriouseats.com/2011/12/the-food-lab-deep-fried-sous-vide-36-hour-all-belly-porchetta.html
I use a cooler for mine. A hole saw cut in the lid makes for an easy place to insert the Anova unit. Since we have an Anova person here, how would that affect the volume of water the unit can handle? I've been looking at upping the size. My brisket barely fit in what I have now!

" . I cook rice with the juice left in the bag also. " Great idea.
If this drop cost anything less than Amazon shipped, I'm in!
And Massdrop, stop coming up with such good deals!!!?!? My wallet can't take it!
I have heard so many people rave about this way of cooking. I definitely will have to pick this up.
livingspeedbump
It's super simple, and the results are delicious!
I bought the older Anova on Amazon probably 2 years back and I love it. It can make some incredible thick ass steaks cooked medium rare all the way through, with a thin sear on the outside. I also do a 48 hour BBQ pulled pork which comes out better than the much more labor intensive slow smoke and oven method I use to do.
I bought a vacuum sealer once i got in to it more, but you can definitely start out with freezer ziplock bags for steaks and other short cooks.

That sounds awesome! Check back in a few weeks for the Drop - the Precision Cooker is a great gift for Mother's Day and Father's Day.
Hopefully there'll be an option for one with a NZ / Australian plug...

We will be offering UK, AU, and US plugs.

Kioaro I'm definitely interested for an Australian delivery...
Never used one before, but I know how certain "BBQ Competitors" win their divisions now. :P
All things aside, this thing looks to be pretty bad ass. My little brother Michael would love this. Will be watching for sure. His birthday just passed, but he'll love me nonetheless.
lquessenberry
He will definitely love you if you get him one! I got one for my brother and he considers himself a pro now.
Been wanting one for the house for quite some time. Being a chef and knowing how much the professional grade ones cost, I could never bring myself to drop $600 to a couple of thousand dollars on one, just to use it at home every once in a while. If it comes with a vacuum sealer I'm definitely in, since mine for the house died about a month ago. If the price is too sweet to refuse I may get 2.

We love to hear you're familiar with sous vide and interested in our product! If you don't have a vacuum sealer, you can use the water displacement method with any Ziploc bag you already have at home: https://anovaculinary.com/video-get-air-normal-plastic-bag/
sarahatanova
I know that method well. I also teach culinary arts in high school and we use the ziplock bag method a lot. Thanks
Will this be available with an EU plug?
Redkid
Yep!
When?
Ahreno
We haven't announced a date just yet, but it'll be within the next few weeks! Stay tuned.
I loved the bluetooth model Anova we used for a while before it stopped working. Made some incredible steaks with it. Definitely some of the best steak I've ever had.
We bought the bluetooth model off Amazon about a year and a half ago and then right after the one year warranty was up, the unit started popping circuit breakers and GFCI outlets whenever the heating coil kicked on. Been a little hesitant to buy another since.
ZachGrossi
Hi Zach - So sorry to hear about your experience. That's definitely a very rare case. Please reach out to me directly if you're interested in replacing your Bluetooth model, however I think the WiFi deal will be worth waiting for!
Man this thing is amazing, coupled with a vacuum sealer and its even better. Once you figure out how this thing works you start dialing in the magic: Ribeyes cooked at 135 for 3 hours, Potatoes and carrots at 190 3 hours, chicken breast at 165 or even the whole chicken at 150 for 6 hours. You can even infuse you favorite fruits and spices to make amazing deserts and great tea and juices for mixing drinks. If we get this at a great price I'm getting at least two!

...Bluetooth version, purchased at Target here in North Atlanta maybe 2 months ago at $150. This thing is really awesome, I've got all of my co-workers buying one, we're all railroaders and most of them are grill masters but I'm not, I couldn't figure out how to cook a great steak to save my life until I saw a YouTube video on the sous vide technique. long story short I bought the Anova Precision Cooker and instantly I was grilling steaks better than all the guys in my office. This thing is a must-have in my kitchen, it has revolutionized the way we prepare meals. thanks for making this!
s_latrelle
That is so awesome! That's how I felt too once I got the device. I could finally make a meal I was proud of - and one that my family didn't have to pretend to like.
I got myself one on amazon (sale, and gift card / points) ... Used it a few times.... it REALLY shines making 24 hr pulled pork !!! tried several variations so far .. turns out awesome
spike913
Great to hear you're enjoying it! Do you have a pic of the pulled pork?
sarahatanova
Only the pic while it was taking a 24 hour bath ... I don't have one after charring it in the oven, nor after shredding it
