MEALS READY WHEN YOU ARE, WITHOUT THE FUSS: Let Mellow know when you want your meal to be ready, and then drop it into the cool water bath. Chill the water bath ahead of time using the Pre-Cooling feature or immediately using the Add Ice feature. Mellow's patented refrigeration will keep the food safely chilled until it's ready to start cooking, and then automatically heats the water at the right time so your meal is ready when you are.

STAY FLEXIBLE: Running late? Built-in wifi connectivity allows you to adjust your Mellow's temperature and cooking time on your smartphone from anywhere. Available on iPhone or Android.
I own a Mellow. I've been using it for a little over 6 months. I really like using it for smaller things as it's way more compact and is ready to go, as opposed to hauling out my Anova wands. It also produces a whole lot less radiant heat in my kitchen due to the double walled cooking container.
I have no problems at all recommending as a supplemental Sous Vide system. I'd still recommend getting an inexpensive Sous Vide wand for the flexibility of being able to cook many more, or much larger sized food items than you can cook in the Mellow.
However if I just want to drop in a vacuum sealed bag of steaks, pork chops, etc for dinner, then the Mellow already tucked away on my kitchen counter is a whole lot easier to deal with! I have also been experimenting with infusing various alcohols via Sous Vide, and it really is a lot easier to accomplish in the my Mellow.
Now onto the caveats...
I no longer use the chilling part of the Mellow cooking system. On the surface it's one of the "coolest" parts of the Mellow having a powerful little Peltier cooler keep your food refrigerated and safe in the Mellow waiting until it's time to start cooking, but from what I've read in the Wired article that I know someone will link to in a comment, there are food safety issues as your food goes from refrigerated to its optimal cooking temperature.
This brings us to the last issue... The app. If you aren't using cooling part of the Mellow, then the built in recipes won't work because the Mellow wants to chill everything first, and then heat the water. I want to skip the chilling step. So you pull up the recipe, get the cooking temperature and time you need (I am a BIG FAN of the Mellow's ability to set temperatures in tenths of degrees for even more cooking precision!), and then enter it in via the manual settings portion of the app. Once the water is at the correct temperature, I put my vacuum sealed bags in the Mellow, and away I go! I just wish there was a checkbox to choose to use the chiller or not in each recipe.
Even with its caveats, there still is a lot to like about the Mellow. At this price, it's a fantastic addition to your Sous Vide arsenal.
Of note: That whole reducing the radiant heat generated while cooking Sous Vide is a big deal. Especially in the summer months. Having a giant radiant heater running for hours, or days in your kitchen will definitely make your AC work harder!
