Meet your new sous-chef!
Mellow is the first sous-vide machine designed around a busy home cook's day: it combines the technology to make jaw-dropping food with a 30-second setup, an in-app assistant chef, and built-in refrigeration.
It takes a lot of energy to craft a great meal, when you have to balance dinner, work, and everything else you have going on. Mellow makes it a lot easier by cooking ingredients to perfection while you're away. This way, when you want to cook dinner, you can let go of the stress and focus on enjoying yourself. Think of Mellow as your loyal helper. Tell it what to do, teach it what you like, and it'll do its best to make your life simpler.
Using the Mellow app is as simple as selecting what you're cooking, how you would like it done and when you want it ready for. Mellow will do the rest and let you know when the food is ready! Mellow will also ask for your feedback and learn your taste over time so it can suggest you the best doneness every time!
What is sous-vide, though?
Widely used by top chefs, sous-vide means cooking in food-safe bags in a water bath to precise times and temperature. The water circulates and cooks the food to perfect temperature, texture and taste. No more undercooked or overcooked, raw or dry. Sous-vide is a way to cook food with such precision that we get results we could never get otherwise. Many great restaurants rely on sous-vide to make the food we love. We’re here because we think sous-vide needs to be better designed to be perfect for home cooking.

Thank you for all your past & continued support as we work hard to improve our product and user experience.
In this update, we have introduced our subscription model for the Mellow Recipes, My Recipes, and History features. You will continue to have free access to Manual Mode as well as our cooling feature.
Although this was not the path that we intended when we started Mellow, this is what we need to do to keep Mellow operational due to the on-going costs of maintaining an IoT product.
We sincerely thank you for all your support and understanding.
Be safe, and keep cooking!
Ratings and Reviews
Surprise subscription now!
Adding my voice to those are angered by the the unannounced requirement to purchase a $50/yr subscription to retain saved/shared recipe functions, including saving your own recipes. Open the app one day and repeated nags to purchase the subscription.
The $350 “smart” sous vide that this the companion app for is priced 3-5x other “dumb” sous vide sticks and the online recipes were part of the enticement to pay so much, BUT…
The hardware still has the chill function, which is a BIG plus compared to other machines.
I get it, running a business requires ongoing income, but this was a bad way to go about it, taking away features I’ve had for three years, again, with no notification in advance, instead of adding some sort of value to the subscription to make it seem worthwhile without being ripped off with crippling functionality.
Actually harder now than a cheap stick sous-vide
The Mellow sous -vide is size limited and takes up space when not in use. It requires an app to set the temp. The key thing it had was you touched a button and it cooled then later heated to be done at a specific time by selecting from a limited number of recipes. Sorry that a server farm to provide this costs money, but that can’t be $50/year, or $14 for a month! Maybe $5 a year could be understood, but as it stands, no one would pay the $400 I paid, then another $50 every year for an appliance, albeit formerly great, that gets used maybe 15 times a year! Reduce the usurious subscription!
The company continues to misrepresent via the cooling “feature.” Whereas before, it automatically cooled until time to heat - i.e set up in AM and leave to co e home to dinner ready, now it only cools until you are around to set a manual program. They could at least allow a sequence in the advanced menu to let you cool until a specific time, then heat, but they limit the lowest programmable temperature to 86 F to effectively disable the cooling that you overpaid for when you bought it.
Another IOT Screw-job
Mellow was faced with an understandable, and difficult decision when the ongoing maintenance costs outstripped any income they were receiving from sales of the units. Once again - understandable and regrettable. The decision was then made to disable all remote services (the thing that made the unit different than all others), try to force a subscription model on everyone with no warning, and leave the manual mode crippled by intentionally not allowing manual scheduling of cooling periods. There is absolutely no way now to cook a meal for later in the day, without being present to initiate the cooking. I understand why they had to move to a subscription model - but crippling the unit for all of us who overpaid for a product we supported and loved, was unconscionable. They are doing all of this when they are trying to launch another unit, and ask more people for support. They obviously timed this move so they had all the Kickstarter $ in their pockets, before they crippled the first unit.
