Anova Nano vs. Bluetooth

Anova Nano vs Bluetooth

Today, we’ll take a look at the differences between the Anova Nano vs. Bluetooth. 

Of them all, the most important is Anova Nano’s affordable price and flexible temperature range.

While Anova Bluetooth provides us with more powerful heating capabilities and an adjustable clamp for greater flexibility.

In the end, we feel that both models are good options to go for, however, we do lean more towards Anova Nano due to its updated BLE 4.2 connectivity.

The Short Version

Anova Nano = 1.25 GPM 4.7 LPM pump, 197°F maximum temp, 32°F minimum temp, 750W heating power, preheat time of 30 mins, 110-120VAC power input, BLE 4.2 connectivity, immersion depth of 7.25 in, 360° directional pump, plastic material, no adjustable height clamp, comes w/ speaker, LED display, touch screen, no LED-backlit scroll screen, serves 6–7 people, can set timer for 99 hours.

Anova Bluetooth = 2.1 – 2.4 GPM 7-8 LPM pump, maximum temp of 210°F, 77°F minimum temp, 800W heating power, preheat time of 24 mins, 110-120VAC preheat time, BLE 4.0 connectivity, immersion depth of 7.25 in, 360° directional pump, material from metal, plastic, comes w/ adjustable height clamp, no speaker, LED display, no touch screen, can serve 7-8 people, sets timer for up to 99 hours.

Anova Nano vs. Bluetooth — What’s Different?


Speaker – The Anova Nano comes with an in-built speaker which will let out a sound when the food is ready, while the Bluetooth model does lack this addition, you’ll still be notified via Anova app.

Heating Power & Pump – There are some differences when it comes to both cookers’ heating power and pump abilities.

With Anova Bluetooth cooker being more powerful with its 800W heating source and 2.1-2.4 GPM 7-8 LPM, compared to Nano’s 750W heating source with an1.25 GPM 4.6 LPM pump for circulating the water.

Display – Both models also feature an LCD display to access the controls and check recipes with.

However, the Nano is controlled with a scroll wheel while the Bluetooth has a touchscreen.

Temperature – When it comes to power, Anova Bluetooth can reach a maximum of 210°F and a minimum of 77°F temperatures, vs. Nano’s lesser measurements of 197°F, and a minimum of 32°F.

Material – While the Anova Nano is entirely made out of plastic material, Anova Bluetooth is made out of metal for the lower part that goes into the water and plastic for the upper body giving it a more sturdy construction.

Connectivity – In terms of connectivity, there are a couple of differences between the two models.

Firstly, neither device uses a WiFi connection, the Nano uses BLE 4.2 while the Bluetooth model uses BLE 4.0.

Bluetooth 4.2 is a more updated version that is both more power efficient and even enables faster and better data transmission.
It’s also backward compatible with 4.0 and 4.1 technology as well.

Clamp – Additionally, Anova Bluetooth also comes with an adjustable clamp allowing it to be more securely placed in the pot, while the Nano does come with a clam as well, it’s not adjustable.

Size – When it comes to size, the Anova Nano is more compact than the Anova Bluetooth at a height of 12.8 in. vs. Bluetooth’s 14.75 inches, making it easier to store and use.
