The ‘iPhone of sous vide cookers’ is $35 off, but you should but Instant Pot’s sous vide instead

Maren Estrada

The ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide is regularly called the “iPhone of sous vide cookers” and “the sous vide cooker Apple would make if Apple made sous vide cookers.” In truth, the Joule only got those labels because it looks like an old iPod from back when Apple made smooth white iPods. It’s on sale right now for $144, which is a pretty good price for this 1100-watt model. Honestly though, if you need a new sous vide cooker you should definitely buy the Instant Pot SSV800 Accu Slim Sous Vide Immersion Circulator for under $80 instead.
