    There are legal ramifications for people starting a kick starter accepting investments and failing and not returning the invested moneys.

    It's part of the agreement you sign when you create your account.

    I don't think I'd have the patience to let something cook that long. 24 hours max.
    I'm not knocking Sous Vide, and like I've said I would love to have a go, I just need to use my BBQ more before I can justify starting another hobby with another cooking method.

    I got an email asking for shipping details from kick starter last week, so it looks like things are progressing nicely.

    Just throwing some of my thoughts... as I've been using various low budget Sous Vide options over last few years.

    I like it being reasonably priced and well designed but at the same time I just don't like to plastic build where the unit makes contact with water.

    I'm now waiting for Anova's immersion circulator

    http://anova.myshopify.com/

    I don't like the touch interface but it has nice design overall and aluminium on the contact part. and price is US $199 so it's about the same (will vary on shipping cost when it's available for Australian purchase)

    Also, this company is not one of those Kickstarters and has history on the temperature control devices.

    They said 220-240v will be abvailable in October but it's not happening yet !!

    Anyway, Nomiku looks the biggest rip off to me...

    I might give few more weeks to Anova and get my hands on Sansaire if they don't come up with 240v version until then. :p

    Been looking at these various low cost circulators for a while, any recommendations so far?

    I nearly went with the sunbeam sous vide but heard bad things from different sources about it's ability to hold a proper temperature.

    So far the only immersion circulator that's available for international purchase (ie 240V) is the Anova http://anovaculinary.com/
    Reviews on Anova has been great, and I like the look of it better then the Sansaire or the Nomiku.

    US$199 , but international shipping is very steep at ~US$80. Total is around Aus $300 shipped, which I think it's still pretty good value for what you get.
    I'm seriously considering getting one soon.

    Sansaire has been pushed back to Jan 30 2014 release date, so another couple more months wait (assuming if there's no further delays).

    The only other option is Polyscience's product, but those are for professional use and cost over $1k.

    Thanks mate, read the large thread on the Anova on egullet and seem pretty impressed with what i've heard so far. Disappointed that it only comes in black however :p.

    Could there be any problems going from 110 to 220V that would be a worry, seeing that the 220v is only just released, whereas the 110 has had a while to iron out any issues?

    I don't imagine there would be. 1) its a fairly simple thing to change electronically, and 2) I imagine being in commercial kitchen and laboratory supplies its something they've done a fair bit of.

    In other news.. I noticed that when you change quantity from 1 to two the shipping goes from $79.99 to $110 ($55 per unit).

    When I change quantity to 3 it says:

    This sounds like there may be potential for a group buy. I've got two friends that are buying with me. Before I contact them to ask for shipping quotes Would anyone else around Melbourne be interested in joining a group buy in principle?
