    My buddy has a Joule and he says he wished he had an Anova instead. Something something Joule requires your phone I think?

    oh shit
    ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide, 1100 Watts, White Body, Stainless Steel Cap & Base

    this thing is horrible, there are no buttons on the joule at all, other than the pairing button, once you dl the app you need a stupid account from chefsteps, then you need to add the joule to your wifi or keep your phone on and in bt range or the shit don't work.

    Not sure about Canada but Anova's go on sale quite often(or used to).I got the non Bluetooth/wifi version for $85 us around a year ago. Not sure you can get that model anymore tho.

    Man, very first time using the sous vide and I think these are probably the best steaks I've ever cooked.

    I'm going to love this thing I think.

    Anyone sous vide eggs? I'd like to do them over night so I can throw them in before bed and have enough eggs done for the whole family in the morning. What temperature do you use? Can they be in that long?

    Are you talking about the perfect soft boiled eggs that have the almost custard texture?

    Also, I made off da hook tortilla soup, and I've come to the realization that tortilla soup is basically soup-chili with chicken.

    I don't think you'd want to leave them in that long, but you can try. Here's a good egg write-up.

    I went to a brewery on Saturday and there was this food truck that cooked all their food in a sous vide. I went for the grilled cheese though. That tomato soup was really fucking good.

    I did 2 last night at 165. They were great....just like hard boiled eggs with better texture.

    I'm going to try cracking a few into a shot glass, cover it with plastic wrap and a rubber band, and then soft "boil" then for eggs Benedict. I think ~140 was the recommendation I saw for soft boiled, but not positive.
