The difference between the two comes down to control preference. The Joule from ChefSteps is operated entirely through a smartphone app with thousands of recipes and customization options built-in, whereas Anova’s Nano circulator is controlled via a six-button interface on the top of the machine. Both prices match all-time lows on Amazon (Anova’s 35 percent discount is applied once the product is in your cart).
