The Anova Precision Cooker Wi-Fi is the best bet for most home cooks due to its low price, relatively small size, and flexibility. It’s one of the cheapest ways to get into sous vide cooking, and thanks to an innovative adjustable attachment system, this version of the Anova cooker works with a much smaller volume of water than the earliest iteration did—so now you can cook with as little as 2½ inches of water in almost any container. The Precision Cooker Wi-Fi has an intuitive interface with simple, scroll-wheel control. It also offers a beep alert when water has come to temperature, circuit-saving lower wattage, and quieter performance. The Precision Cooker Wi-Fi is made by a lab-equipment manufacturer with a reputation for accurate and long-lasting gear, which is important for precise cooking.
AppOnFly has a different approach -- the company maintains Windows computers with a wide selection of Windows software, including utilities for accessing PDF, ZIP, graphics and other files, web browsers, various office suites (MS Office, Libre Office, Apache OpenOffice, WordPerfect Office), and statistical packages (SPSS, NCSS, R), to mention a few. They then provide apps for accessing this Windows desktop environment from any device -- computer, smartphone, tablet (Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android). This is a pay-for service, but they offer one-month free trials.
The Anova Precision Cooker makes it easy to achieve professional-level cooking results at home. To use, simply attach the cooker to any water-filled pot, put your food in a sealable bag, and set the time and temperature. The Precision Cooker heats and circulates the water to a precise temperature, cooking food to an exact temperature which creates maximum tenderness and moisture retention (without worry of overcooking). The Anova Precision Cooker connects to your phone, so you can cook amazing meals by the touch of a button -- spend less time tied to the kitchen by relying on the app to notify you when your food is ready to eat.
