Looks like this is an all-in-one system. The anova is just the heating stick, this one is the whole container/bath.

This unit has a refrigeration system as well. This means you can put your food in (like a piece of fish) in the morning, and it will keep it refrigerated until it's ready to be cooked, about 45 minutes before you get home.

Yeah this was my issue with it from the beginning. Been doing Sous Vide for almost a decade now and as awesome as this SOUNDS it's a terrible design from a health standpoint.

if you kickstart the cooling process by adding ice to the water in the morning i don't see the whole argument of bacteria growth while its cooling to be an issue.

And you can now pre-cool it...I start the cooling when I go to bed, drop the food in the chilled water in the morning. Tell it the time I'll be home and it's done when I walk in the door. It goes from the cooling temp to the cooking temp very fast- the issue was the time it takes to go from room temp to cold which is not an issue w/ the pre cooling function now.

You could just do this with an anova in a rubbermaid/cambro. Mine holds temp incredibly well and it has a function to start cooking when it reaches a dangerous temp.

I would steer clear of mellow.

How does your Anova start cooking when the water hits a desired dangerous temp? Is that an in-app feature (and is it for the Wi-Fi model)?

That's only half the issue, the other issue is going from cold to the required temp taking too long. With traditional sous vide you start with the water at the temperature you need and it's only a function of how thick your item is for it to get to the required temp. With this, you're starting with ice water and then heating that slowly to the required temp which takes a long time

I have never used it myself but it's a feature of the delayed cook time. So if the temp reaches a level before the cook is supposed to start it will go ahead with it and notify you. Not sure what models dont support that but it's likely only useful on the wifi model.

Also seems like the reason they're getting rid of these is that their new dual section version is out and has a much larger vat starting at $179 https://www.kickstarter.com/proje...f-a-button
