This is latest sous vide circulator from Anova Culinary LLC, which it is less expensive and smaller than their previous offerings.
As you would suspect, the Anova Nano has similarity to its predecessor the Anova Precision Cooker. It is definitely smaller and lighter, making it easier to manipulate and store. More importantly, it is priced lower than the previous Anova circulators
The Nano also has an intuitive and easy to operate user interface. It can be controlled via controls on the unit, or through Bluetooth on a smartphone. Both are simple, intuitive, and easy to use.
The Anova Nano is excellent at maintaining the target temperature throughout the cook, even at high temperatures.
The Anova does have a few weaknesses, namely that with only an 750 watt heater it doesn't heat all that quickly. It also doesn't handle large water baths (above 5 gallons) very well. While it has Bluetooth, it does not have WiFi controls and the Bluetooth app is pretty mediocre at this time.
The Anova Nano has the lowest power rating (750 W) of all the circulators we've tested. It heats water slightly faster than the Bluetooth Precision Cooker, but is still one of the slowest circulators on the market.
Despite the shortcomings, the Anova is an accurate circulator available at a low price. If slow heating speed and the lack of WiFi are not deterrents, the Anova Nano is a wonderful machine for most people's sous vide needs.
