Bulky Wi-Fi Nomiku sous vide machine falls short of the originalThe Wi-Fi Nomiku heats and circulates a water bath so you can cook food via a method called sous vide. But the model, an updated version of a device we first reviewed in 2014, is much clunkier than its predecessor, and the connected app isn't as robust...
[MUSIC] Nomiku was one of the first companies we saw to create a product just for home cooks who wanted to sous vide. Recently Nomiku has released a new version of their sous vide circulator with wi-fi connectivity. The WiFi lets you connect to an app called Tender where you can use recipes that other people have uploaded and it will automatically send the time and the cook temperature to your [UNKNOWN] Unit. I didn't find that the app was very robust. It was kind of a nice to have more than a Have to have, and the actual [UNKNOWN] itself is a lot less attractive than the older model without the wi-fi. It's bulkier and it's a little harder to use, especially the turn wheel when you want to adjust the temperature When it comes to cooking, the Namaku does do a pretty good job. The meat and veggies that I cooked with suvee came out pretty well. I tipped the temperature of the water bath while the Namaku was cooking the food To see how consistent it was with its set temperature. Though the Nomiku did stay within one degree of the set temperature, it tended to run about .6 to .8 degrees hotter, which doesn't seem like a big deal. But Sous vide cooking is all about precision so the closer we can get to the set temperature, the better. The [UNKNOWN] is going to sell for $249, but you can preorder it on the company's website for $199. But when you take a look at all the other suvee products out there a lot of them have connectivity that's a lot more useful and helpful then what [UNKNOWN] currently offers. Unfortunately, this product is not at the head of the suvee pack.
