Joule sous vide device puts the power in its appThe $299 immersion circulator opts for a streamlined design and puts all the control in its Wi-Fi connected app.
[MUSIC] The company Chef Step takes a new approach to [UNKNOWN] machines with its joule immersion circulator. Instead of loading up the circulator with touchscreens and controls it strips all that away and puts all the controls on an app. Now this app is really robust, and slick with videos that show you each step of cooking using sous vide. Which is really, really cool and really, really helpful, especially if you're new to this method of cooking. Another thing I like about this machine is its magnetic bottom, now most sous vide immersion circulators, you gotta clip onto the side of a pot. Or whatever container you're cooking in but with this you can just stick it right in the middle of a pan thanks to this really strong magnet that's attached to the bottom of the circulator. But in case you have any doubts, there's still a clip too. Now the Jewel is retailing for $299 but if you pre-order it now you can get it for $249. This puts it a little bit above other similar More circulators. So we still have to test and see if its performance is better than the competition's. [MUSIC]
