This stick works effortlessly and perfectly so far. I just bought it for myself for Christmas so if it fails within the first year I will update. I am having so much fun experimenting with this cooker! I have made poached eggs, omelettes ( in a zip lock, lol), double thick pork chops, steak and veggies so far and it all turned out fantastic! It is large, but that means you can use a huge pot for a big roast and you can put plenty if water in so it doesn't evaporate before the thing is done.
You can download the Joule app and follow the Chef Step recipes for every type of food. You don't need a cookbook if you have any access to the internet. Any large grocery store has zip lock roasting bag like the ones for Turkey brining for large cuts of meat. Just immerse in the sous vide pot up to the zipper and close it up with no need for a vacuum sealer. If you use hot tap water to fill your pot it will get up (or down) to temp within about 5 minutes.
I can't see where spending the extra money for one of famously hyped other brand name units would make any difference in the outcome of your food. As far as not having the feature of controlling by Wi-Fi, you don't need it. I think that would only confuse things for me personally. I love this thing just the way it is. Simple with easy to follow directions and controls!
