Strata is a Monoprice brand so you wont find much around the internet about it. The brand is fairly new, 7 months(?). I have heard good things and the reviews on the Sous Vide seem to be pretty "It does what it is supposed to" not much bells and whistles. I think I am going to pick on up today. 1/3 the price of the Anova but Anova does have WiFi, Bluetooth, etc... for my first though I think I will go with this and invest in a better one if I (read: my wife) really love it

I have this exact model (ordered from the first time this deal ran), I had previously made my own DIY sous-vide with a crock pot and a temp switch, and before that with a thermometer a kettle and a cooler.

It shipped quickly and I plugged it in a tried it out the day it showed up. It seemed to be pretty close on temp only varying within a degree or so (I did not perform any type of calibration). Which is much better than I was every able to get previously. I also just threw it in a big stock 20qt stock pot filled 3/4 of the way full. It was likely near the capacity of the unit but it raised the water temp and held it perfectly within my expectations. I did check the temp with a calibrated thermometer and at all places in the pot the temps were within the same degree or so range.

I'm confident it will be more than suitable for my needs and palate. I was able to cook some very delicious steaks with my rudimentary sous-vide previously, things can only get better.

Picked one up so I don't have to transport my Anova back and forth to/from work. Yes, I sous vide at work and finish in a nice Breville toaster oven. Have done ribs, steaks, and whole tri tips at work for lunch! Smilie

I'm curious too. It appears to be a direct knock off of an Anova but there is almost nothing online about it

I got one for $60 like a week ago. Used it once and it works great. Circulation seems sufficient and it maintained temp well.

Figured I'd try one of these as a gift for my Aunt for Christmas. Thanks, OP - looks pretty cool!

Can anyone recommend a container for the water/sous vide?

I must suck at cooking because everything I've made on my machine has been just ok

Anything should be fine. I have used large pots and a food storage tub as well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000R8JOUC/
Make sure you're not eating it right after cooking it sous vide; sear/otherwise finish it in a pan, on a grill, in the oven after the bath.

Should you use special bags to sous vide? Or will regular food saver vacuum bags work fine?

I am pretty darn good at smoking meat and I've always wanted to try some hybrid techniques with a sous vide. I just worry about chemicals leaching out from the bags.

If you need large amount, you can also use a cooler.
