Was looking at one of these years back but held off on the first generation. Looks like the later revisions are much better and fully connectable to bluetooth and wifi with proper app control.

Buying direct on the Black Friday deal is the best price I've seen, and cheaper than Amazon. Free shipping in the UK.

Given you can have a 4+ hour cook, it's actually useful to monitor if you want to leave the house. You can also setup an ice bath when you leave for work and start cooking while away so it's done when you get home.

But yes, will mostly be used on the couch.

If they have anything similar to this at Aldi then I'll be all over it! I haven't seen any at the two I go to though.

I have this. I asked the wife to lob some chicken into it ('it' being the water bath) , whilst I was away.
She got antsy about it being too technical to operate (it's not), she didn't know what she was doing, etc.
Once she'd lobbed the meat (vacuum sealed) into the bath, and turned it on, I used the app to set the temp and time over wifi. I was about 150 miles from home when I did this.
The meat was cooked perfectly for me arriving home a couple of hours later.
Is the wifi/ BT connection a gimmick? Possibly, but it certainly worked for me.

Is that national as they were ~£50 in a store I went to on Thursday. Might have to go back and get it scanned if it is a national price.

Just let me get this right. Your wife prepared and vacuum sealed some meat, put a pot on, filled with water, attached the sous vide wand both in the bath and the bracket to hold to the bath, plugged it in turned it on to let you connect via app to roll a dial to temp and press play. I think she was letting you feel better for having spent more for the wifi app version fella.

Pretty much what you said, yeah.
Still, she wouldn't do it.
She's also a Geordie, she would have no qualms in giving me grief if she thought I'd wasted my money. In fact, she rolled her eyes when I bought it. After she'd tried a steak done sous vide, she was converted, but not to the point she'll use it herself.
As I said, "Is it a gimmick? Possibly, but it certainly worked for me."
