No app?
Not sure about precision and durability.

edit: temperature range. Instant pot is 40-90C. Anova is 0-99C. Once I had to keep my turtle at 30C, and precision cooker came in handy: I just nested the turtle's temporary small container inside a water bath heated by anova.

App is not that usefull as the only feature I use with my anova wireless is starting it from work. If putting your stuff in an ice bath before leaving and starting your meal remotely doesn't appeal to you , then this should be fine.
The main downside is it's wattage, but if you plan on using an insulated vessel and start with hot water then it should maintain water hot enough.

No. Turtle’s container with water was nested inside the water bath container.

It cooks meats & other items throughout at a very consistent temperature the same all the way through. I have heard nothing but rave reviews of this style of cooking.

The cooker maintains a water bath at a precise temperature to cook vacuum-sealed food. The food doesn't need to reach simmer/boil temperatures when using this method, so certain desirable textures can be achieved. I regularly use a precision cooker to cook steak, chicken, pork ribs, lamb, eggs, fish, burger patties, etc. It can even turn $3/lb eye of round into delicious roast that I can thinly slice and serve with homemade hoagie rolls and mayo.
On a different note, I'd recommend Anova and Joule precision cookers over this Instant Pot one. Those two are proven to be powerful and precise over the years. Based on the reviews, Instant Pot's cooker has less optimal circulation and other small issues. The money saved with one sous vide steak meal at home is enough to cover the price difference.

I have this and the joule...both are great. Once you get used to sous vide, there is not enough difference to warrant paying more. No need for wifi/Bluetooth.

It makes the best turkey breast... And makes poor cuts, as good if not better than expensive cuts. I make chuck roasts taste better that prime rib.

I have this exact model. Bought on Black Friday. It is very accurate according to my Thermapen. I have zero complaints about this and it is well worth the money. Makes some of the best steaks.

Please share steak recipe/instructions using this sous vide model. TY

Necessary to vacuum seal the bag? Or can leave open or seal without vacuuming?
