In addition to giving away a sous vide circulator on this week's Boing Boing Gadgets podcast, today our pals at Nomiku are announcing their next generation, wi-fi enabled circulator!
I use my Nomiku often. I am a huge fan. Hard boiled eggs, steak, fish, chicken, literally everything I have tried comes out fantastic. If I had any complaint it'd be that the current model Nomiku needs too large a pot to be used for just one or two people with California's drought on. The new model appears to answer that problem handily, being of a smaller form factor. Additional upgrades are easier cleaning and wi-fi connectivity. I am not sure how the wifi will add to the flavor or texture of slow cooked food, but I'm open to trying.
Nomiku kickstarted their first circulator to great effect and have chosen to raise funds for the improved model there.
I can not recommend their current model highly enough. If you can wait for it, this new smaller sized unit promises to be a champ!
