Anova Precision Cooker 900 Watt Release

One of the main areas the Anova Precision Cooker was lacking in our sous vide benchmark tests was the heating time. It was the slowest machine tested for several years. Anova has now addressed that by releasing a 900 watt version.

This new version helped reduce the startup times from 32 minutes to 28 minutes, putting it closer to the other inexpensive circulators. Though it still lags the Gourmia Pod and ChefSteps Joule by a good amount.

Even with the slower heating, we still recommend the Anova 900 watt, and it is one of our Top Picks. It is available on Amazon.com. For more information, you can read our detailed Anova Precision Cooker WiFi review.


Jason logsdon headshot This article is by me, Jason Logsdon. I'm a passionate home cook who loves to try new things, especially when it comes to cooking. I've explored everything from sous vide and whipping siphons to pressure cookers and blow torches; created foams, gels and spheres; made barrel aged cocktails and brewed beer. I have also written 10 cookbooks on modernist cooking and sous vide and I run the AmazingFoodMadeEasy.com website.
