Anova Nano --- New

Recommended Posts

It's a great proposition..... 

 

great size and prefer the interface than the app only Joule.

 

I just note it's available to the EU, but not in the U.K at least as pre-order...... so it begins.

700 W is no big deal

 

if you use hot tap water

 

and for loger cooks

 

a Coleman or generic cooler

 

remember the tops of coolers are not insulated 

 

but easy to fix.

A dealbreaker for me is the size of the clamp. Won't open wide enough for the sides of a standard cooler.

 

I wish they'd make a full-featured, no-compromise circulator, with the small form factor and and improved interface.

No reason they couldn't couple the body size and heating element design of the Joule, the clamp design of the regular Anovas, and an improved interface.

good points

 

my small and med coleman cooler needs  24  and 26 mm

 

the Nano is 18 mm

 

odd restriction

Based upon something I just saw I doubt Target will pick up the nano. The Target I am in right now has put the Bluetooth model on clearance.

@blue_dolphin

 

very nice vid 

 

from the SVE Boys

 

the issue not mentioned 

 

is the gap for the threaded holder

 

a bit small

 

but OK for some.

 Thanks for sharing. Nice but it won’t persuade me to give up my Joule.

No Matter

 

its about getting the job done

It does seem less flexible in the sorts of containers it will fit than either the original ANOVA or the Joule but the sub $100 price point might be enough to convince some to take the plunge into the SV bath.  :P

Now how about the oven?

 

I don't think the Sous Vide Everything guys review ovens.

That may change.

I think it ticks a lot of boxes for Anova:  smaller but still with manual controls, waterproof, and a great price point.  I don't think many people will miss the wifi connectivity.  I also think the clamp is a bust, but only because having it fixed in one place limits the size of the pot you can use it in.  I can't imagine why they wouldn't/couldn't have a sliding/adjustable clamp like their other models.  I certainly hope it wasn't just to maintain a slimmer profile (which IMO would be silly).

I'm impressed by the video. My biggest complaint upthread was that the clamp wouldn't open wide enough for a cooler, but it turns out Anova specs it at 0.7" ... it should just barely fit.

 

This looks perfect for a 2nd circulator, for those times when you need different temperature water baths. It would also be great for travel. I've crammed my Anova 1 into checked luggage. Passable but not fun. 

 

I prefer the construction of the Joule, but am just not interested in a phone-only interface. And the construction of this thing looks quite solid. Time will tell if it's built well enough to be a workhorse, but that's now how I'd use it.

Im wondering if the Nano is in stores and can be examined

I have one in my basement.  No, wait.  I have two in my basement, one of which is going back.  What do you want examined?  I doesn't come off.  I looked at it, and was worried it would break if I poked at it too much.  I'll take some measurements tomorrow.

the measurement of interest is the maximum width of the clamp

 

some beer-coolers might be too thick to use it.

Why is one nano going back?

 

I don't need three sous vide circulators.  I miht have kept it, if the clamp came off.

They say it opens to 0.7". My coolers are right around this thickness. My guess is that since both the cooler walls and the clamp are plastic, there's a bit of wiggle room. I just hope the clamp is burly enough to handle some flexing.
