First Look: Nomiku turns any pot into a Wi-Fi sous vide cooker

1:53 /

The second-generation Nomiku boasts cloud connectivity, a new app, and a smarter design for those who want an immersion circulator without the bulk.

[MUSIC] Hey guys, I'm Sharon Profis in San Francisco at Nomiku headquarters where the company is serving up a new WiFi connected immersion circulator. Like the first version, the point is to make sous vide cooking more accessible by allowing you to just clip this device onto any stockpot or container you already own, and boom, you have an immersion circulator. The main use kits for them is soothy cooking, where you put food like meat or veggies in a plastic bag, and cook them at a constant low temperature, which gives you nice, even cooking and really juicy results. What's changed most over the first version is that it's now WI-FI connected. So, you can monitor the temperature and the timer, even when you're away from the device. It's also open source, so in theory, one day your hue light bulbs might flash to let you know your food is ready, or you can get a notification on your smart watch. It also lets Nomiku send over their updates to the device. There's also a new app, so you can use it to find recipes from chefs and community members and send the exact temperature directly to your Nomiku. And unlike the first version, the clip goes on the outside this time. So the display is facing you. Plus you don't have to put your hand over hot water to adjust the temperature. [INAUDIBLE] now works with shallower depths, as little as 1.5 inches and like the first version, it's design ensures that it will never overheat. Like it's first product, Nomiku went to Kickstarter to fund its new project. And in as little as 12 hours, it already hit its goal. So you can definitely expect to see Nomiku hit the shelves for $249 in the spring of 2015. Plus, it's made in the USA. For cnet.com, I'm Sharon Profis.
