The Anova has been going for 5.5 hours now and I've been up anyway so I have checked the temp with my Thermapen about 10 times and every time it has been 130-130.1F (mearsured at several spots in a 5 gallon kettle). The Anova has read solidly at 54.4C (130F), so it is thus far standing up to it's +- .01C accuracy claims! And you have to be standing right next to this thing to hear it running, SUPER smooth and quiet operation!

Another thing for those that may not have picked up in the photos of the machine broken down/taken apart, is that it does NOT have a pump, but an impeller/prop to centrifuge the water. Thus, no need for distilled water as there are no internal parts in the water. Nothing gets pumped thru the machine.

There are a few differences between the original “One” and the new “Precision”.

The One is more powerful (1,000 watts vs 800 for the Precision), has better display/interface and can handle a larger amount of water.

The Precision has Bluetooth and a better clamp that also slides up and down allowing use in a shallower container than the One.

I own 2 of the Precision models as a KS backer. They are so good and precise that I have mothballed the DIY setup that I'd been using for many years. I'm just cooking "household" quantities and have never found the need for more than the 800 watts. Maybe the 1000 watt model would heat the water faster, but since the hot water out of my tap is very hot, it really isn't an issue. Once the bath is at SV temps, only a small amount of energy is required to maintain the desired temp.

I have never used the app.

My first sous vide attempt - the cheapest piece of beef I could find - select chuck @ $2.49/lb. 30 hours at 131F with a few peppercorns and garlic slices in the bag. It was as tender as you could ask for, but I was a bit underwhelmed with the flavor. I'll look for something with more fat next time. This piece was LEAN. Seared on a cast iron skillet after. Definitely better than making pot roast with the same cut of meat.

Here is the simple set-up - I was losing about 1/2cup water/hr until I put some Al foil over most of the pot then almost none.

NICE.....I do the same thing with foil or plastic wrap covered with a towel. Heats up to temp remarkable fast. Give the short ribs a go Craig, my favorite thing out of it, hands down!!!

You'll love it. That collagen and connective tissue melts into that dense, creamy, gellatin stuff surrounded by hunks of meat.........I gotta get some soon. I liked them little pockets of soft tendon and collagen as much if not more than the meat. I know you know what I'm talking about, love that stuff. I'll be waiting to see your results.

One of my favorite ways to do beef short ribs - Korean Kal Bi. Just pop some short ribs and some of this mix into a pouch. Finish over coals or hit with a Searzall. Serve with sticky rice. This batch will go for 36 hours. I prefer a bit lower temp, but my wife prefers them this way.

Bill, are you using the clamp on the Anova, or just resting it in the hole?

Clamp. It almost fits perfectly on the Cambro.

Craig,
   I'm only mentioning this because I can't tell from your picture, but a Sous Vide in a flat bottom pot can and will crack a hard surface countertop.  If you aren't already, something underneath the pot will save you from my disaster.

   Also, I've been putting the meat with marinade in the  bag overnight in the fridge and then just popping the bag in the Sous Vide and it really amps up the flavor.
