Nomiku's Wi-Fi sous vide machine needs some fine tuning

The $249 WiFi Nomiku is an immersion circulator that connects wirelessly to an app called Tender. But the sous vide machine doesn't live up to its more streamlined predecessor.

WiFi Nomiku

The WiFi Nomiku attaches to the side of a pot or other container. The device then heats and circulates water inside the vessel so you can cook via sous vide. This method involves putting food in a plastic bag, removing the air from the bag and cooking it in a temperature controlled water bath.

The WiFi Nomiku (right) is almost twice as wide as the original (left). This makes it more unwieldy, especially when it comes to using the green turn wheel to adjust temperature, cook times and settings on the screen.

The Wi-Fi enabled device (right) is the second sous vide machine from Nomiku. The original Nomiku (left) was longer and more slender, but did not have Wi-Fi.

Instructions for setting up Wi-Fi are relatively simple. Once you're connected, you can use the Tender app to use the WiFi Nomiku.

This flank steak was tender and cooked to medium after 24 hours in a 140-degree water bath that the WiFi Nomiku regulated.
