I have the Silicone lid for the Joule and it works perfectly. Several people have mentioned that the hole does not fit correctly, but mine fits like a glove. I always clip it all the way down, so the Joule sits as low as possible in the container. There is never a problem. The lid is flexible, making it easy to lift back for adding or removing items from the water bath. Because it is flexible, you do need to go across it like a zip lock to make sure the seal is good all the way.
Before, I used ping pong balls (thanks seriouseats.com). They worked like a charm, but for $12, these are a lot more convenient. Also, they do an ever better job of limiting evaporation. I never have to top off the water.
This thing works great on my 18 qt rubbermaid container, but sometimes that container is just too big, so I bought a smaller one. Stupid me, I bought the 8 quart, which this does not fit. That being said, it works fine. It just does not seal all the way. Keep that in mind. You can use it with smaller square or rectangular containers.

I bought this for use with the Chefman circulator and the Rubbermaid 18qt container. The hole is too small for the Chefman out of the box, but I used a 3" hole saw to enlarge the hole from the corner and it works great. You could probably get a tighter fit with a 2 3/4" hole saw but I just used the 3" I had on hand. I would give it 5 stars except for the hinge bit. Not sure how long it will last as the hinge is not really a true free swinging hinge - it's just a bendable area with cutouts and something I could see being subject to fatigue after a while.

Love it. Snaps onto my Rubbermaid container perfectly and the cutout for my Joule is accurate as well. I found the hinge closure also useful to drop in a bag at the front of the tub and fold it over the front edge - works just like a clip when shut to hold the bag in place. (The included photo was taken before I figured that trick out) The plastic “hinges” are durable enough to allow me to knock the lid against the side of the kitchen sink to remove water droplets during cleanup.

I purchased the lid in the suggested kit with the container. The lid fits well and stays put with very little heat leaking around the machine.
Nice little kit with everything you need to get going except the phone or iPad. Most importantly, setup was extremely easy, fast and worked without a hitch the first time (that almost never happens for me with anything wifi). Every time I've used it since, it works seamlessly and the app is simple and easy to use whether you set up manual or automatic cooking. The temperature control is impressive with the app displaying the current temperature within a tenth of a degree.

Fits the box as indicated and works quite well. The opening for the joule is the right size for the regular clip, with the larger clip that is for thicker boxes but will also work on thinner boxes, is larger and would require the hole larger. The hole can be sanded to a larger opening to fit. Of course enlarging the opening means you can’t go back.

Fits the 12L Rubbermaid container well; however, note that the opening is too small for the Gourmia sous vide device that I have (it is not advertised to, so no negative points for that!). I was able to cut the opening about 3/8"-1/2" larger to fit. I assume it fits other sous vide units better without modification. This one with the articulated lid that half-opens is better than the other item that is designed to fit Gourmia, despite the need for modification. Plastic is not super soft and flexible. Good product.

So far so good - it fit my Rubbermaid container perfectly, and works flawlessly with my Joule. I haven't done any quantitative analysis, but it sure appears that it keeps a lot of heat in that would otherwise be lost with an open container. For long cooks or even repeated use of the same water there is less loss to evaporation, so it's all win. I'm very happy with this purchase - I wish I had picked it up much sooner.

Arrived on time and as described. Works great with ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide.

A great size to take care of all your needs regardless of the size of the cook. I bought the cover as well and just completed my first 36 hour cook of a brisket and it worked great. Never had to add water but I did get the plastic balls and the insulating wrap as well. They all worked great in concert together.

Great for those long sous vide cooking times (brisket, pork butt, etc). Definitely cuts down on evaporation. The lid fits perfectly around the joule and snaps tight to the rim of the Rubbermaid 18qt container. The hinge is perfect for opening and adjjusting/removing the bags while cooking.
