You need to apply the promote code super6 to get the last few dollars off. Just remember if you have it shipped to Canada you will have to add exchange rate + shipping + duties etc.

Thanks, I'll be shipping it to my US mailbox but the damn exchange rate is still gonna get me.

edit: decisions decisions, do I spend an extra $20 cdn after exchange for the 1100 vs the 800.

Yup. I was in the US in Feb and most of this month and man did the exchange rate hurt?! I am tempted to order one and have it shipped to my US address but I won't be back there until August, not sure if I want to have it sit there for four months though.

Does anyone else have experience with this? Most things I've read suggest sticking with Anova
I got the 800 watt one for Christmas and we've started to use it on a regular basis. Work great for pork chops, and thick rib steaks cut from prime rib roasts (thanks RFD!). I honestly have no idea why one would want wi-fi or bluetooth ... isn't the whole idea to set it up and leave it for a few hours? I use a fairly large IKEA plastic container and it works great; I don't know how big a container would require the 1100 watt version (maybe a 45 gallon drum :-)).

To help just a bit with the extra US fees, remember ebates/GCR for a whole one-percentage off!

Thanks OP, I've been looking for a deal on one of these. I'm not too keen about playing border-fee roulette though, I got burned very badly a few months ago with fedex.

I'm still kicking myself for not picking up the 800W when it was around $77 at amazon.ca several month ago.

People I have talked to love the WiFi because they put the meat in an ice bath when they leave work, then when the ice has melted (it alerts them) they start cooking. This way the meat still stays cool during the day while at work and does not cause any bacteria growth.

Or so has been explained to me by them. I assume it's a problem leaving it running for 12 hours in terms of food quality or they just don't want to waste the power.

Okay, I can see how that would work well for some things. Thanks for the explanation!
