The Wancle Sous Vide Cooker, did well in our test. It is easy to handle and due to its small, compact size it is flexible to use and easy to store. It doesn't show too big temperature deviations and no big volume.
The Wancle Sous Vide Cooker, stands out in the test with its design compared to the other sticks. Here, too, we have a rather simple design. This stick has the advantage that it is very small and compact. This makes it both easy to store and easy to handle, as it can be used on pots of standard size.
The stick is fixed to the container with a clamp, which can be fixed at different heights by several grooves. The clamp is operated with a lever on the handle. The container must have a minimum height of only 10 cm.
The display is easy to handle. It is switched on by the touch screen and the time and temperature symbol can be used to switch between the two settings. A small wheel on the side of the display adjusts the settings. After you have made your required settings, start the application with the on/off button.
The stick needs 17:57 minutes to heat the room temperature warm water to the target temperature (test: 60°). At the volume level, the stick reaches 44 dBA.
The stick manages to maintain the set target temperature with deviations of +/- 0.2°.
The stick has a temperature range of 25° to 99°, which can be set in 0.1° steps. In the time setting, the range is 0 to 99:59 hours, which can be set to the minute.
The stick beeps 2 minutes before the target temperature is reached, and again when it is reached.
This stick allows you to change the temperature and time even during cooking. The process does not have to be stopped, as with the other sticks.
We have evaluated almost 250 customer ratings on the Internet. In summary it can be said that About 90 percent of the buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars).

- Good temperature maintenance
- Good handling
The following points were noted negatively:

- Knob sensitive
If there is a power interruption during operation, does the appliance then continue cooking without resetting?
The cooking process continues. After a power interruption etc., the appliance starts automatically. The default setting is retained.
What is the maximum size (litres) of the pot, can large quantities of meat (up to 4kg) be cooked at the same time?
That is no problem, larger pieces can be prepared in a larger container, the stick can handle that easily.
How do the timer settings work?
With the button next to the set-up display you can switch between time and temperature settings, if both are set you can start with the start button below.
Is it also possible to heat other liquids (e.g. mulled wine) with the device?
In theory you can. But the inside of the circulation pump will stick together permanently.
