The Anova Precision Cooker Nano sous vide machine which is a record low price for the cooking gadget. That amounts to a 60 percent discount since the MSRP for this thing is $150. In other words, there’s no better time to dip your toes in the temperature-controlled water bath


The Nano is an entry-level sous vide machine, so it doesn’t have too many bells and whistles. However, it has a reliable and quite portable heating mechanism. This heating element weighs only 1.7 pounds and is small enough to fit in your utensil drawer.

It plugs right into a standard wall outlet and includes Bluetooth, so culinary wizards can monitor cooking progress from a smartphone. Don’t let the pictures fool you. Nano does not come with a special container or any resealable bags. The good news? Works with almost any pot and store-bought bags.

The Nano’s bigger brother, the Precision Cooker 3.0, topped our list of products on the market, so it’s a well-regarded company. The Nano and 3.0 share many similarities, from the overall design language to the easy-to-use temperature control panel. The Nano lacks the adjustable bracket that accompanied the 3.0 and has replaced Wi-Fi with Bluetooth, but is otherwise a capable replacement. Thanks to this deal, it’s a fraction of the price, too.
