The Nomiku WiFi Sous Vide Immersion Circulator is a new entrant into the immersion circulator market from one of the pioneering home sous vide makers. This device is the second model from Nomiku.
Nomiku is reputed to be the first to introduce WiFi connectivity to sous vide machines. However, due to production delays, competitors like Anova were able to push Wifi enabled sous vide devices into consumer’s kitchens ahead of Nomiku.
The new Nomiku WiFi sous vide is set to raise the bar with its advanced set of features and powerful, durable heating mechanism.

The performance of the Nomiku WiFi is excellent. The heating time is good and the temperature accurate to 0.2 F.
