About this app

Looking to pair your Joule Oven Air Fryer Pro or Joule Turbo Sous Vide with the Joule app? You’ve come to the wrong place. This app only works with a first generation Joule Sous Vide. Download the “Breville Joule App” to get started with your Joule oven or Joule Turbo.

Get access to the ChefSteps' sous vide recipes and control the original Joule Sous Vide with the Joule App. From raw to ready, the app coaches you through the whole process, so cooking sous vide is simple. Just pick what you want to cook, and we’ll walk you through the rest.

The Joule App includes groundbreaking features like Visual Doneness, precise temperature control from anywhere, and a robust collection of recipes and cooking guides created by the ChefSteps team.

You tell us what you’re cooking, we tell you when it’s ready. Making a two-inch steak? Great. Just tap the Start button, and Joule will set a timer for perfect doneness. Get notified when your steak is ready—and we’ll also tell you how much longer it can stay in the water without overcooking.


• Exclusive access to our cooking guides: The app comes with step-by-step guides for everything from perfect fried chicken, to succulent salmon, to the best steak you’ve ever had in your life, helping you unlock the power of sous vide.
• Visual Doneness: Choose exactly how you want your food to look and taste when it’s done, then press go. Joule does the rest. No more filtering through online forums to get the information you need. Visual Doneness takes the guesswork out of sous vide.
• Step-by-step instructions, so you can learn as you go: Every guide comes loaded with quick videos that’ll teach you new techniques and help you get the best results.
• Notifications that let you know when your water is hot and your food is done, no matter where you are. Not ready to eat? We’ll tell you how much longer your food can stay in the water without overcooking.
• Bluetooth and Wi-Fi control, so you can cook from anywhere.

I've been using this app for about 4 years and I think its very poor. I love the sous vide cooking and the gadget works great for cooking, but the app is so hard to use and frustrating. It's never been improved. The wireless connection works horribly. It takes forever to connect (I have no trouble connecting various other devices on my home network and bluetooth). Once you get it set up, the normal phone screen timeout disconnects the wireless. Aggravating.

Horrible App. No, it isn't my connection so stop sending messages like that. It doesn't work on my android or my Apple products either. I can stream video and game without issue so it isn't me. It doesn't connect via Bluetooth and never finds me via wifi. The hardware could be better if it had actual controls on it when the app fails, but it is 100% dependent on the app. The recipes are good. The connectivity makes me wish I got another brand instead.

The app is has good cooking instructions that include short videos. It's very flaky, if I move to a different app it eventually loses connection to the stick but frequently has trouble reconnecting. If I reload the app it starts from the beginning losing the data from the initial cook time. It's not optimized for a tablet either. It works well with the basics like setting the temperature but after that it's best to set your own timer.

What's new

Notice we’ve gone a little gray (our icon, that is)? We got tired of driving into town to get our color done and are embracing our silver fox status. But not to worry, we’re just laying low and getting ready for the big move over to our new app. We can’t wait to show you around the place. Stay tuned for more.
