Good price. I haven't heard of this brand but I'm sure it will get the job done as well as any other one. Cheaper than any sous vide item for sale on Amazon/Costco.

Tons of no name Chinese sous cookers on Amazon/Ebay this price or cheaper. Anova 900watt wifi/bluetoof needs to go back on sale soon for $70-80. I am hungry!!! Based on no name reviews I would stick with anova, joulles, or instapot. I am waiting.

Unfortunately a lot of the reviews are from recipients who received free products - most of them interestingly review the concept of sous vide rather than the product itself.
The Gourmia w/ wifi from Amazon is at a camelcamelcamel low for $70 and may be without tax. Would be something to look into:

Have friends with the Gourmia... and I own the Anova Precision... both are great. I think any will probably work OK, you're probably paying for longevity.

Bluetooth is a decent feature... nice to be able to look up a recipe and transfer cooking time and temp directly to the unit. That said, you really don't need it. That goes even more so for wifi (probably be just as useful to have HDMI! Smilie )

Best accessory to buy to go along with it is a cheap vacuum food sealer. I buy chicken breasts, pork chops, etc. in bulk and vacuum seal them with some spices and freeze. They go great from the freezer directly into the sous vide bath.

How do you accommodate time for frozen meats?

I am a generally a poor cook, and spend very little time cooking. My style is "spend as little time as possible, use simple recipes, stick food into cooking appliance, set it, come back when ready". Out of three appliances I got recently, air fryer and pressure cooker get a lot of use, replacing my previous favorite standby microwave. Sous vide gets very little use.

Not commenting on this brand, or for usefulness of sous vide for any people who are better cooks than I am - but for me, I found this cooking method overrated.

I'm an infrequent cook as well but I do like using a sous vide when I do. Not sure if you have a food sealer but that certainly makes using Sous vide pretty simple... And I love recipes I get for the sous vide

Hey, I almost never post BUT, I would spend the little more for a name brand.
I have an Anova nano and I can now make better steaks than the best steak houses. Good day

I have this exact model from Macy's. I've used it many times. Works great. I wanted an Anova but my mom got me this one as a gift since she shops at Macy's a lot. At first I wasn't sure about it but I haven't had any problems with it.

For frozen meat, you just have to wait for the water temp to reach required temperature, then add 30 minutes to the cooking time

Lots of rave reviews on Macy's only to indicate that they don't recommend the product. Are people that stupid!?

You are what you eat. If you keep up the quick simple methodology, you are going to be sacrificing your health. Take the time to prepare wholesome foods and you will reap the benefits in more ways than you can imagine. Think of it as life insurance for the future. Heck, not just life but quality of life insurance.

Profit motives and the pursuit of money have broke down our ethical compass of what is good and right. Companies have started to cater to people's needs of quick and easy at the expense of quality of foods. Yes, you may be saving that time now, but more than likely you'll be paying that time back in faster health degradation and other quality of life demerits. More visits to doctors after working all those hours at the job because you are too busy; too busy to care about what goes inside the mouth. Essentially, what your saying is your too busy to care about yourself.

I hope I didnt come out as offending in anyway. Just wanted to point out the harsh realities some are facing in these modern times.
