Yes, there are cheaper options from Anova and Monoprice, but Joule works for those that prefer its easy to use app interface with recipes.

Been through 6ish Nomikus before buying a Joule. I would not go back, this thing is amazing. The app is great, the device is small and light, drains instantly, heats fast. Probably the best sous vide on the market.

I completely agree!

I imported back in January from Amazon.

It years up a lot faster, much more efficient, easy to clean and store away.

Works with Alexa, with Google Home coming soon.

Looks like it's only pre-order (delivery Dec 23rd) and $229 for both versions (stainless $20 off from $249).

Looks like it's a tagged offer for $20 less.

When I click the link from my e-mail I still see $179/$199.

That's the one I posted above.

Still worthwhile at current prices since you aren't paying for the import taxes and fees from Amazon.com.

Edit: NVM, I think they forgot to adjust the pricing on the links before the email went out, as now the email link loads at $229 too.

How much are you getting paid to post this?
Why would you ask this? It is a legit deal just for the fact that it is now available in Canada. I have an Anova, but when it dies I'll probably give the Joule a try.

I looked at the Anova before picking up the Joule and I paid import and currency fees since only Amazon.com carried it.

Like I wrote above, I find it much better than the Anova as its more compact, has more power and easy to follow recipes visually with the attached app.

They decided to offer it in Canada, just in time for the holiday season, so figured I share.

I think he just prefers the Monoprice units he posted.

800 Watt Units versus 1100 Watt Joule and not blatantly copied from Anova.

I also got the Joule, quick summary:

Pros:
-Smaller
-Heats faster (1100W)
-Quieter
-Magnetic base (for pots/containers that are magnetic)
-WiFi and Bluetooth (Depending which product you are comparing against)
-App/Visual Guide is very useful
-Looks better (subjective)

Cons:
-Costs more
-Must use app to control
-App requires account creation

Costs a lot more. Don't like that you Must use phone to monitor time left.

Power doesn't mean much if you heat up your water before you put on the unit.... Why would you use cool or warm water...I use hot tap water and also boil some water. Considering the food is cooking 2,3,4,5,24...48 Hours, what does another 10/20 minutes matter.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

I have an Anova and wish the Joule was available last year because I probably would have gotten that instead. The joule app is way better than the Anova app. I was hoping that since Anova was purchased by Electrolux that they would have the resources to redesign their app to compete with joule. So far there has not been any meaningful improvement on the recipes or the usability of the app.

Phone can be used to help guide you through cooking recipes. So your end result matches their end result.

Joule let's you set and forget it even when warming the water. Placed the pot on but had to go outside for a bit, Joule won't start the timer till your ready
More power is useful as Joule won't lose as much as heat as other units if you are cooking large pieces. How many times are you going to pour heated water to fill up a container to cook your holiday cuts?
Magnetic base means easy of use with existing pots.
Much more compact than the Anova when it comes to storage.

Anyways options are available for every type if consumer, for me, the extra money is worth it for Joule.

Having used the Anova for about two years, I don't see much that needs to be improved on. I'd opt to buy another Anova over having one Joule so I can sous vide multiple things at a time.

The Bluetooth Anova dropped to $100 around this time last year, I'd probably buy another and invest the rest in a Cambro poly container for it along with some insulation and still come out ahead if that deal comes around again this year.

I've already picked up my cambros, it's also nice that they have precut lids for the Joule.

I'll be picking up a Breville Polysciene Smoking Gun to experiment with for thus holiday season.
