I have owned this one for nearly 6 months, and it's not as good as my Anova, but it definitely does the job without fail. I have noticed that it fluctuates +/- 1 degree a couple times an hour. This is not crucial at high temps, but is annoying at low temps.

If you want a second sous vide for high temp cooking (aka veggies), or just want an intro into sous vide on the cheap, you need to buy this now!
At this priced, it's a no brainer.

Take my money!

Found this:
"We had been looking forward to testing Monoprice's Strata Home Sous Vide Precision Cooker 800W since its announcement at the CES 2017 trade show, as the low price and Monoprice's strong reputation made it intriguing. It looks pretty similar to an Anova immersion circulator, down to the scroll wheel for setting the time and temperature. We encountered enough bugs with an early production unit that we can't recommend it, though. The temperature, even when we set it to Fahrenheit, moved only in Celsius increments, so when we tried to set it to 135 °F, the only options were 134.6 °F (57 °C) or 135.5 °F (57.5 °C). Monoprice told us that it's "working with the manufacturer on updating to be based on Fahrenheit increments." The other issue is that when we set it to the higher of the two temperatures, we saw the circulator's display repeatedly jump to 136.8 °F before going back down, throughout our 12-hour cook. Although Monoprice acknowledged that "the temperature will fluctuate within +/- 1% while in operation," this result is more than a degree of difference, and it's strange enough behavior that we don't think the Strata is the best choice at this time."

I wonder if that's why you have issues Godson?

So people here are thinking that a couple degrees in temperature change is going to ruin the food you're cooking and using plastic bags will kill you.

Pretty sure both are nitpicks and not true.
At this price I'm tempted to bite.

Also, it's the exact same size as the Anova (the head/control panel is slightly larger), so anything that works with the Anova will work with this.

so it will actually tick through all of the tenths of degrees and not correct itself? That's just crazy. Integrated temperature control is pretty simple, and it would be crazy for it to be this bad.

Don't these things require you to cook things in a plastic zip loc bag? And isn't it a health hazard to heat or cook things in plastic?

I was looking into this, and I noticed a few comments on the product about the minimum bath size. Some people were saying they found that the minimum bath size of 2.6 gallons (10 liters) was sort of restrictive.

I didn't see any minimum bath size with the Anova model.

Is the minimum bath size a usability concern with this model?
