Looks great. i love the bluetooth control. Looking forward to a more in-depth review of the software, including its customizeability, etc.

The kickstarter campaign is going like crazy, when I ordered ( 30 mins a go) there were 200 backers and 28000 pledged. Now they are up to 88 k...

Over $100,000.  Looks like I have two of these bad boys coming!  F*ck yeah!

 

I hope someone at Serious Eats is getting a free device; that's where I saw the news.  Quite by chance, I might add.

 

They sold out of their $99 units in the time it took for me to order two.

Yeah, it went down from 400 to go to nothing pretty quick.

 

Still, The Dev Pack is good value.

 

 

I hope they'll introduce some cool stretch goals.

I'm in at $129.  And it's my first Kickstarter to boot!

 

I bought a SideKIC when it first came out.  Luckily, I was able to dump it during Amazon's 30-day return period due to a faulty display.  Glad I dodged that bullet.

 

I've been a very satisfied Sous Vide Magic customer, but everyone knows it's a wee bit of a pain to set up.  If I can keep the SVM in the garage on a permanent basis, I'll be happy to have a more compact unit around for use in the kitchen.


So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money. But when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

In at $129, also my first Kickstarter project. This was sort of an impulse buy, but I have been following Kenji's home-user SV reviews for a while and thought about going in.

Hope my old Anova breaks soon.....

Wow, I missed the 99 while I was on the webpage but got in at the 129. I hope they make an Android app and have the app hold user preferences

You could buy two for $115 each and get one early if all goes to plan.

The 220V and International shipping included sealed the deal for me.

But then I still have  the basement-dwelling  SV Supreme which, oddly,  I use more than the Anova.

for 99 you get what you get I think, in terms of colors   there were offers for a bit more for a white

maybe check w them if possible

 

there is a "manage your pledge" button but it doesnt go anywhere to change you 99 $$ I tihnk

 

maybe they send you the one based on your address?

 

be a bummer to get the 220 w a 110 set up and visa versa.

It pisses me off that they didn't come on here and tell us it was coming. We gave Jeff a TON of feedback and we didn't even get a chance at the $99 units. By the time I got the email, over 2,200 people had already pledged and all the cheap units were long gone. I can't believe that's how they treat their most loyal customers who just wanted to help them make a better product. Not happy at all!

Apparently, I have my mom to thank for loving to cook. As she always says, "You should thank me for never cooking. It forced you to learn how!"

    • Anova Sous Vide Circulator (Part 3)
      By DanM
      [Host's note: this topic forms part of an extended discussion that grew too big for our servers to handle efficiently.  The discussion continues from here.]
       
       
      I am thinking about an Anova for a slightly different purpose. Can I use this in a home brewing environment to manage the grain mash temperature? 
       
      Maybe I can use this for a HERMS brewing setup? I would use the Anova to maintain the temperature of a hot water tank. I would then use my pump to circulate the wort from the mash tun through a heat exchanger (copper coil) that is immersed in the hot water tank.
       
      Thanks.

    • Rotary evaporator
      By Kent Wang
      This article from the French Culinary Institute goes into detail about the rotary evaporator that they have.
      Highlights:
      An initial question I have is that for doing something fairly simple like reducing pomegranate juice to make grenadine, could I just put the juice in a pan and put it in a food dehydrator, which is much cheaper? How about stock?
      Sure, you would lose some of the aromatics, while the rotary evaporator, based on my cursory understanding, would capture all of it. But that's a compromise I'm willing to make. I could see something like making brandy and syrup from wine (as detailed towards of the bottom of the above article) to absolutely require a rotovap.
    • Polyscience Sous Vide Toolbox (formerly known as SousVide Dash)
      By ElsieD
      Does anyone know anything about this? It looks like an interesting app but the Apple store does not seem to have any info on who created it. Neither are there any reviews. I'm a new sous vide user who needs all the help she can get and am wondering if this app would be helpful.
      Thank you!
