Just announced today, in case we were suffering a shortage of Anova threads.

 

Looks like they're going for Poly Science's jugular.

 

I'm not sure why the 120v model doesn't got 18KW ... other brands do. Otherwise looks like a killer for $400.

Number one, You don't need more then 1000 watts to maintain temperature. I prefer a lower wattage heater. They last longer.

 

In a small confined space, the higher wattage will have to burn the heating element at a higher temperature.

Sad that the international model (220V) is 50% more in cost at $600.

I don't personally want more than 1kw, but I can see how it would be useful in a commercial kitchen where big, uninsulated cambros are typical. 

 

Is there really a history of professional lab circulators with 1.8kw heaters crapping out?

Grumble, and it ships 2 months before the ones we crowd-funded.

I didn't see warranty length noted anywhere so I fired off an email to ask.

I think it is an old Lone Ranger joke, but I am fond of my Anova.

I must say that it's the best looking SV circulatorso far. And the data for HACCP is a great thing, does the polyscience have that?

It looks a lot like one of their existing lab circulators. Which could explain its quick arrival. I don't know what they changed besides the price (listed at $895 on the lab site).

It's a 1 year warranty.
