    Nah! I'll stick with my Anova. When my original one died after 3 uses, they replaced it with the upgraded version at no additional cost. I like that about a company. 😁

    That's disappointing. I saw Monoprice had one for $99 actually today, but I've already got two Joules. I usually recommend Monoprice to friends, but I've mainly used their cables and TV mounts. I can still recommend those without hesitation, but I will pass on checking out their immersion cooker. Thanks for the tip.

    Was not able to get a response to my email or call to Monoprice. I ended up buying an Anova from Costco. The regular model is on sale everywhere for $179 (from $199) and Costco has the same, bundled with a $60 tank for $199. I think it had been on sale for $159. The Joule was also tempting, but pricier.

    I did consider trying to repair the Monoprice, but it had special screw fasteners that couldn't be opened without a special tool.

    Get what you pay for is a good rule of thumb and meets expectations.

    Did you check the warranty? Monoprice has decent warranties on some things.

    Monoprice Sous Vide circulator dies

    About a year ago I had recommended a $70 Sous Vide circulator from Monoprice after using it about a half dozen times. It did a good job and looked much like an Anova. But I guess you get what you pay for. It suddenly failed and no longer works reliably. Shuts off intermittently and blinks erratically when you turn it on. Not about to tempt fate by putting this flakey electric appliance into it into a pot of water.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
