I have an Anova from a few years ago, 800W I think. It has bluetooth but not wifi. I used the bluetooth twice, ever. Pointless feature for me. I like the anova since you can use it without any other devices. It works great, I wouldn't want one with a permanent clip on it, I have a cooler modified and if it had the clip permanently attached it wouldn't work as well for me.

I have the Anova 800W Wifi.
The Wifi allows you to do delayed cooking, which I am doing right now. Fill the bath with 50/50 water/ice, put the food in, and you'll get a notification if the temp hits 40F (danger zone). The impeller spins every few minutes to circulate water around the ice. This is handy for times when I want something to finish right when I get home. Not a critical feature and I don't use it often, but handy when needed.

+1 on the Joule. The phone-only interface scared me, but it’s been flawless. It will keep a 60 qt cooler at perfect temp without even breathing hard, and the clip/magnet attachments are awesome. It is also so little that SWMBO doesn’t gripe about it it in the cabinet...

Wow! A lot of choices.... I have Anova from a few years ago, 800W Bluetooth and very-very happy with this device. Very reliable.... In fact I was thinking about buying new Anova - Pro version - but price bites... It's $399.

Nothing special. Set it up a few years ago and haven't had a problem. What are the details of the problem you are having?

Got a 1200 watt from Aldi. Doesn't move a lot of water but seems to work. It was $50 but I've seen them reduced to $35.
I saw an Ambiano (Aldi brand) SV circulator at the store last summer for $50. If it was reduced to $35 I would have bought in, being the last one. Glad I waited since Inkbird gave their coupon code that got it to $50 then I had Discover card cash back bonus $ to throw at it on Amazon to get it to $18. I think Aldi stands behind their product warranties in store so if you have the receipt and there's a problem within the warranty, just take it back.

I gave the Inkbird a run today, and it did great! I did a couple of frozen chicken breasts that I smothered in pesto. 145º for 2.5 hrs. Finished it with a quick sear, then free-styled a sauce with the fluids in the vacuum bags. Served over tortellini.

I have done 21 hours on my Inkbird for bottom round and it works perfect. I just used it this weekend for 3 tritips (previously smoked and frozen) and it was such a huge hit with the 13 guests we had for dinner.
