I love my Anova sous vide but the app could use work. It doesn't seem to communicate very well with the sous vide. When opening the app after starting a cook, it'll sometimes stop the sous vide. Also, notifications can't be swiped away. Even after I've lost connection (unplugging it) I get a notification that the water temp is ready but I can't swipe it away.
The app is very user friendly, everything is simple to read and understand. The downside is that some of the features don't work as expected. For example the recipes will set your temperature and timer, but I was having a lot of issues with it working without playing around with the anova itself. I honestly recommend taking the extra 5 seconds and do the settings yourself. One final thing to note, the Bluetooth range on this product is not all that great.. if you plan on walking around your house with your phone, get the WiFi anova (or manually input all the settings for the anova yourself)
A couple months after purchase, the app no longer connects, and the cooker does not work. The cooker itself is broken. The display is blank, though it beeps sometimes when I press the screen. I am an engineer - getting the cooker connected was easy - when it worked. The problem is the cooker, not the setup.
When it works, its fine... Since the last update, the screen flickers between the actual and the goal temp very fast. Also kind of annoying how it will notify you several times that the connection was lost when the unit is turned off.
The Wi-Fi setup is really bad. If the machine can only use 2.4Ghz, then it should not have the capability to choose 5Ghz. At the very least, let you choose a different network.
The app drops frequently. Why I have to power on the Anova device just to seek recipes or check the guide? Also lost connection frequently. I think the problem is not the device, but the app, turning the experience of use really bad.
