So I won't be able to monitor my Anova from work and adjust temp/time? This is a game changer.

 

Correct, no Wifi option as stated on the kickstarter page, only bluetooth. It will allow you to adjust/see temp from within the bluetooth range (your house). 

 

Saying this, theoretically, one might be able to connect to the new Anova through a Mac/PC/phone and with the right program, transmit the information out on Wifi. Saying this, the device would have to be in range of the Anova and be turned on at all times.

 

Lets see what Dev's come up with once the API is released. Ideally, I would LOVE to see a Sousvide Dash time of app, tied in with thermal probe (For Android as well as iPhone). Wouldn't it be great to be able to track the internal temp as well as the water temp?

Anova is seeking some more feedback on the new precision cooker...

You'll have to lie about your postal code if you are from Canada.

Perhaps that's something worth mentioning in the survey comments... I suspect it isn't a problem only Canadians will experience.

I apologize on behalf of my fellow USAians. :blush:

rotuts, the email I got said they weren't able to add in wi-fi and still meet their delivery time commitment. The subsequent survey asked if we were willing to wait longer to get a unit with wi-fi. So my interpretation is the decision still hasn't been finalized.

I guess it is true the thing might be hacked, though.

I wonder about a software solution that uses a desktop computer in your house to act as a go-between. This would be a 3rd party software project. And maybe not so easy to set up ... you'd have to navigate firewall settings and all that. If someone could do it simply, I'd be intrigued.

 

I'm less intrigued by the prospect of teenage hackers from Kyrgyzstan giving me salmonella.

Well, looks like the PRO version is out of the bag: http://anovaculinary...sion-cooker-pro

 

26L/min circulation and goes low temp at 20C (68F) instead of 25C(77F) for the other two units. Going for $399 for US/Cad version

 

External temp prob!

599 international.

I'm happy with my two red PCs I have coming for 198.
On your domestic market, however, this could clean up in commercial kitchens.

True, it's an extra $100, but you get a 2kW heater instead of 1kW. Not saying it's worth the extra $$ but that thing must heat up water so quickly!

It's impressive, but I have a 1.25kW from Clifton, which is our domestic brand.
By the time you add on vat, duty and postage to the Anova pro it's not worth it anymore.
I will keep my eyes peeled for an Anova chamber vac, though.

-a way to sync with via bluetooth with a computer that could text you when you're not home (I know this would be complicated ... but I don't need remote contact if I'm at home with the circulator).

-alerts in case of wide temperature fluctuations or power interruptions

-ability to program multistage cooking ... like a precook at low temperature for increasing tenderness, followed by the final cook at higher temperature

-ability to set an on-timer, so it can start heating the water a half hour before i plan to get home

 

A more advanced app could have the features of the sous-vide dash app, but with better graphics and ability to control the  circulator directly. But the developer of that app may be planning such a thing.

Two-way communication for lazy people, so I can see what temperature the water is at on my phone without having to get up!
