Breville/Sage/PolyScience Hydro Pro / Plus


Recommended Posts

PolyScience has been doing some instagram teases. At first I thought this might just be the first time this is coming to this part of the world, but it seems to be a whole new product. Immersion circulator with networking, touchscreen, and probe. But they're being sly and using the product name in the hashtags if people pay attention. The design reminds me a lot of the Anova premium model.

 

The probe is interesting, though, and they'll sell little sticker blocks you attach to the outside of your bags, then drive the probe through to maintain integrity.

i also like that it looks like you can use it in a shallow pan. they show it off being used with some ramekins, or a probe driven through a terrine lid , with the bath coming up to the lip. kind of a fun idea, though i doubt i'll be able to afford this guy for home use. :)

 

there are a bunch of press photos on their flickr account here

 

the instruction manual is up on the fcc 

 

 

i wonder if they were planning on launching this much earlier this year and got delayed because of the pandemic...it looks like their HACCP iOS app was uploaded in december of last year and updated with explicit references to this product all the way back in may

I got to 45L at up to 90c.

 

didn't see how long it could constantly run at, anyone?

 

The Anova Pro's have frequently been half price in this troubled year, this unit, at least to me, looks pricey.

I think that’s a reasonably impressive stat, though Anova’s I believe goes up to 60L. Both are more than enough, really. 
 

I read in the manual that it’ll take timers of up to 99 hours, so that’s my stab at a maximum run time (can it overheat pushing 90C for that long, though, idk). I’m sure this will be targeted at mostly restaurant / commercial lines with the polyscience branding - I’m aware that there are a few here who buy the stuff, but I’d wager they are more exception than rule. Don’t get me wrong, I’d probably buy one if I were wealthy, haha. 
 

(I did manage to snag a return anova pro recently for $40, though, so maybe I should shut up).
 

One cool feature related to the haccp app is the ability to log, save, and email all your cook times, either to yourself or your food inspector.

Looks like a worthy upgrade to the older Polyscience units targeted at professionals. Easier to clean, integrated probe, better clamp system, IPx7 waterproof rating, HACCP manager app, built in "SV toolbox" and recipe/setting saving so your idiot employees can use it without killing people. I can only imagine that, like the crossbranded Control Freak, it's going to cost a lot more than I'd be willing to pay for it. But home users aren't the target market, so...
