these are very low quality and don't do the monoprice name justice...get yourself a anova nano or bluetooth regular model when they're on sale for a little bit more.

monoprice did not design and produce these, they're just some chinese company's anova knockoff branded as monoprice.

I have the 800w one and used it once. It took forever to get up to temp but sustained it fine for a few hours i needed. I should have bought the 1100w. Other than that, any reason why these are low quality? Construction seems solid and temps were relatively stable when I used it for about 4hrs+

I had one too when they first came out to test it because they were so cheap and reasonably priced- had to return it because the electronics were faulty. good example of cost cutting: the anova (and most good devices) adjust tempurature by 0.5 degrees regardless of being set to C or F...the strata only adjusts in 0.5 C increments which means in F it adjusts by 0.7 degrees. is that minor? yes. is it a sign of shortcutting? yes.

even aldi's sous vide device came with a 3 year warranty (originally 50$ but i picked up a couple for 12$ when they discounted them- they work great), this one just has 1 year o.O

the amazon clone companies keep changing names and shutting down, but here's one that's still active:
https://www.amazon.com/Gramercy-K...B073R2PZF3

if you look at the bottom of the main pic, you'll see that the U shaped dip in the front isn't there in the second smaller view, and that it's the exact same slightly square profile on the plastic bulge that the strata has, it's just a different color plastic. like I said, these are not produced by monoprice, they're just labelled as such.

i have been popping into Aldi's occasionally to see if the Sous Vide devices are back in stock.
it seems so intermittent.​ when was the last time you saw them? i am in New Jersey.

i've never seen an appliance come back to aldi, which is kinda perplexing :/ that said i also don't super keep my eye out for them.

Have the 800w and used it several dozen times with no issue. I just use any random pot that fits what I want to sous vide and it heats up in less than 5 minutes and maintains temperature.

I got the Suos Vide water oven for @69 off here, LOVE it! Only thing is the opening cut in the aluminum is too big for the control panel...I emailed CS at monoprice, never heard back 2 months ago...that said, there is no better way to cook steak. IMO.

I've been using the Monoprice 800w sous vide about an hour everyday for the past year -- I have a cat that needs daily injections of Lactacted Ringers fluid. This does an excellent job of warming the bag of fluids up to the cats' body temperature making the process much easier. Other than an increase in noise from the device since new (now about 35db, 6ft away), it has worked perfectly. I also use it for cooking fish and steak w/no problems.

These don't last long if you have extended cook times. My cook times range from 12-36 hours and Ive had two fail on me. They start making a whining noise that goes away if you wiggle it, but gradually it gets harder to make it stop whining and eventually they error out.

Don't own this one. But ANY sous vide needs a cooler. Check Google. You can buy a small cooler for $10 and use a hole saw to make a perfect fitting cut ($5 if you don't own one, and if you don't own a drill.. well you should)

Water comes up to temp faster. Hold heat tons better. That surely will prolong the life. Putting it in a metal (conductive) pot with no lid is just wasting energy.

Second this. I also use hot water from the tap to give it a head start

What's bad about the cheap ones? I have an Anova, a friend uses a cheap one. They seem to function exactly the same, aside from the Anova being able to connect with an app on your phone (which I have no need for).

I never thought about that but it seems so obvious now. Why doesn't anyone do this in any of the online articles or Youtube videos with they cook sous vide? It sounds like a great idea.

BTW if anyone wants to know more about sous vide or just wants to see some great cooking videos, I highly recommend the Youtube channel called Sous Vide Everything. Those guys are really entertaining and have cooked all kinds of meats and tried all kinds of recipes and suggestions, and compare them all to see what works best. It's a lot of fun to watch.
