Looking at the 1-star reviews... construction might be an issue. Cookbook...if you're lucky, and if you do get it, don't expect much.

Probably a Karen who 1* resorts because there’s too much sand at the beach.

No experience with this sous vide cooker but my cousin has it and doesn’t seem to have any complaints.

Thanks OP. I have an Anova and ordinarily I'd stick with a known brand, but for the money I'm willing to take a chance on a second circulator for when I need a second bath running a different temp.

I'll let you all know what I think when it arrives.

These stuff has been increasing in price lately. I remember getting a Chefman one for like $50 at walmart just a few years ago, which still works after a few dozen or so usage.

Now everything is $100+ unless on sale. I wonder what is going on.

I have an anova wifi but never use it. Sure it makes a great steak but ask yourself am I going to really use this thing? Some people will love it and use it a ton I thought I was but it never happened.

Also reading the description etc they haven't put much time into translating to English I'm not sure I would want to trust the safety of this knockoff.

InstantPot branded sous vide is 99 at bb&b, not sure if it applies that 20 off or 20% coupons..

Not sure if they have the same features, but it's defo an option for a name (and Canadian) brand...

So you don't like a great steak?

I can make a great steak without it in a fraction of the time. If I'm going to spend all day cooking meat I would rather have roast or ribs on my rotisserie. You will never experience collagen breaking down into the most delicious thing on earth with sous vide.

Then you clearly don't know what your sous vide is capable of.

Anova Nano was selling at London Drugs for $119.99 a few months ago. Unfortunately they no longer carry it. They presently carry Instant Pot model SSV800 at $119.99 (seen on sale for $99.99 in the past).

I decided on Anova because it has a known reputation for reliability and accuracy though not the cheapest brand. It also comes with Bluetooth on the lowest priced Nano model. My experience is that temperature control is quite precise to within 0.1 deg C. Anova also has a low water level alarm which won't allow the immersion heater to turn on unless there is enough water. It's not clear whether the other brands have this feature.

One reviewer on Amazon had a bad experience with the Instant Pot failing after accidental immersion of the display in water (this is apparently safe to do with Anova although I don't recommend).

Judging from photos of the VPCOK unit, it appears the clamp mechanism is more suited for a flat walled container. Instant Pot and Anova models both have screw clamps which appear more robust and can adjust to a round cooking container. VPCOK clips appear thin and more likely to break with accidental drop or frequent usage.

Although the VPCOK is a good deal at $70, look beyond price if you intend to use this for a long time. I've had my Anova for several months, and used 2-3 times per week with no complaints.

there's pictures of the VPCOK being used in a round pot similar to IP pots, so that won't be a problem. I have also heard of Anova's crapping out often as well, and their customer support being hit or miss.
