Hello, 

 

This is my first post here, and it happens to be about new precision cooker from Anova. I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but here it is.

 

what do you think?

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.

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

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

nah.  you will use both:  the smaller puppy for small jobs and re-heats

 

the Top Dog for larger jobs  and both for Goliath Jobs.

 

that's my plan

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

got the email

 

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

 

cant say much on the 110/220

 

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!"
