Verdict = Anova slightly ahead of the Sansaire (beta version only - release version coming in January) and Nomiku trails

From what I read of the piece I am happy with my purchase. (sansaire) Also sounded like some problems he found have been taken care of with it.

I kind of got that same feeling. I am happy with sticking with the sansaire.

Jon, Would love to hear your thoughts on the Anova once you've had the opportunity to spend some time with it. As well as other's thoughts on the Sansaire.

+1. Nothing super detailed just initial impressions (at least at first).

I opened it up last night after getting home and made an egg, because i didnt want to wake up my kid with the vacuum sealer at midnight ;)

The build quality feels really nice, the controls are pretty straightforward, i like the directional flow of the water, and it works quickly enough for me. In all honesty, i thnink i'm going to like it more than the polyscience creative that i've used at a friends house before. Trying to cook some real food with it soon, but have dinner plans tonight sadly.

posted this in another tread too:
"finally got to use it tonight for a steak (skirt steak... new mexico style)... really happy with speed of heating up, temp consistency, and flow direction control... i set the timer, and i expected it to beep or something, but nothing like that happened... i wonder what that is all about... it just kept going, but the timer stopped. Anyways, steak came out perfectly... temp was spot on. So far, so good."
