This Is About as Cheap as You’ll Find a Decent Sous Vide Circulator

Monoprice’s Strata Home is on sale right now for about as affordable as you’ll find a decent sous vide tool.


Monoprice’s Strata Home is not a top-tier sous vide tool. By most reviewer estimations, that title belongs to either ChefStep’s Joule or Anova’s line of sous vide tools. But, as we’re discovering, sous vide cooking isn’t reserved for expensive steaks and salmon, and as such you don’t need to go for one of the top dogs if you’re just in it for its more general benefits.

The Strata Home doesn’t boast the absolute precision and speed-heating of Anova’s option, or the app control of the Joule, but it is more than half the cost of either right now. The Strata Home, which usually retails around $70, is $43 on Monoprice’s site — that’s $20 cheaper than it is on Amazon. Pro tip: you can use ordinary ziplock bags, you don’t actually need a vacuum sealer.
