[FCC Update 2014-05-12] After I wrote this post, but before it was published, Anova contacted me to see if I wanted a test unit. (I said yes.) This doesn't change anything I say below - I backed this project before they contacted me, because it looks like a great deal.
Interested in Sous Vide cooking? Looking for a deal on an immersion circulator with some fantastic features, including the ability to drive the cooker through your phone? Have I got the Kickstarter for you...
Anova Precision Cooker - Cook sous vide with your phone [Kickstarter.com]
Anova is Kickstarting a redesign of their popular immersion circulator. The new version has a simpler interface on the unit itself, and a iPhone app that lets you control the unit from your phone.
The best part? The new Anova has a list price of $169 - a new low for sous vide immersion circulators. But, if you act fast, you can preorder through Kickstarter for the low price of:
$99 for the first 1000 backers $129 for the next 1000 backers $135 for the next 500 backers $139 for the next 500 backers $145 for the next 1000 backers
(Um...wow, that went fast. That's what I get for scheduling the post for next week. )
So, the current price is $159 for the next 2000 backers...and you may have to buy quickly if you want it at that price. They also have good deals for buying two units at once, in case you want to cook at more than one temperature. But, even at the full list price ($169), this is a great deal on a sous vide circulator.
The downside? The units won't be shipping until October, so you'll have to be patient. (I hate being patient. But I have already backed this Kickstarter anyhow.)
