      In the past few months, my Nomiku would stop working at higher temps (160F +) saying the engine was stuck... no problem at lower temps though (below 150F).

      Last night while I was doing chicken at 145, the Nomiku failed, and the engine would not start up again no matter how many times I reset. Help?

    2. Creator Roni Puma on April 17

      I have never received the Nomiku. Please help.

    3. Creator Assaf Litai on November 19, 2014

      Did the international versions ever ship out? I never received mine and messages to the team are unanswered.

    4. Creator E. Houde on November 11, 2014

      Whatever happened to all the backer parties?

    5. Creator Uwe Montree on October 21, 2014

      Hi Lisa, should I have received my unit by now?

    6. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on August 14, 2014

      @Jen Caputo thank you! We haven't forgotten about you, it's in the works!

    7. Creator Jen Caputo on August 13, 2014

      Congrats on your new project. I was wondering if a date was scheduled for the Chicago party yet?

    8. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on August 1, 2014

      Hey @Qasim, let us help you troubleshoot, the fastest way to reach us is or, thank you for the message!

    9. Creator Qasim Hussain on July 1, 2014

      @Lisa. I received my unit a couple of weeks ago, thanks. However, the unit does not seem to be working. The water seem to be circulating fine but the is not getting heated at all and the temperature keeps falling. Any suggestions?

    10. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on May 25, 2014

      @Juergen @Antti So sorry to hear about the issues you both are experiencing! My colleague Patrick will be following up with you shortly! Thanks so much!

    11. Creator Juergen Kimmel on May 25, 2014

      Maybe no EU citizen received the right cable. I also was lucky to such cable at home.
      But: My Nomiku's temperature runs like crazy most of the time. Lukewarm water shows 70° C and temperature is still rising up to 120°C. Any ideas?

    12. Creator Antti Plathan on May 24, 2014

      @Lisa, I received my CE unit couple a weeks ago. I have two questions about it:

      1) The touch screen is already peeling off. When I unpacked the Nomiku, the touch screen sticker was already 1/4 unpeeled and I was able to see the cables and electronics inside the Nom.

      2) The green wheel rotates freely, i.e. there is no damping, resistance or any other form of haptic feedback in the temperature setting ring. Is this how you designed it, or could my unit be missing something? The temperature setting works fine, but it feels Über cheap.

    13. Creator JBW on May 23, 2014

      @Lisa - just wanted to say that I heard from Patrick already - you guys are awesome - really happy I supported the project.

      p.s., I'm waiting on some 48 hour corned beef brisket - should make some nice weekend Reuben sandwiches!

    14. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on May 23, 2014

      Hi Gary! Asian backers' units should be shipping out at the end of the month--update coming very soon!
      @Annette, so sorry about the wrong plug! We recently discovered that our supplier sent the wrong cables to our warehouse. Thank you for your flexibility! Don't forget to check out or our blog at for yummy inspiration and recipes :D
      @JBW My colleague Patrick Wong will be following up with you shortly!
      Thank you all!

    15. Creator JBW on May 23, 2014

      @Marshall Simmons - my power supply is insanely loud - louder than the actual immersion circulator. It's so loud that I can hear it a couple of rooms away and feel like I need to close the kitchen door. Not sure why the power supply even needs to make noise?

    16. Creator Annette Nordheim on May 20, 2014

      Got mine yesterday, also with the wrong cable. Fortunately we had a spare at home, no need to send another. But for the future, please note that Norway (and most of Europe) don't use British plugs :)

      Now to decide what nom to cook first... Yay!

    17. Creator gary yeo on May 11, 2014

      from singapore... still not recieved anything yet...

    18. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on May 8, 2014

      Hi Kristian, so sorry to hear about the heavy import fee and getting the wrong cable--my colleague will follow up with your shortly!

    19. Creator Kristian Aasgård on May 8, 2014

      $120 dollar import fee did hurt, but atleast I have mine now. Mine also came with the wrong cable.

    20. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on May 7, 2014

      Hi Patrick, Marshall, Henrik, and Jan! Sorry to hear about these issues--someone on my team will be following up with you immediately! We look forward to getting all these issues sorted out!

    21. Creator Jan Åge Johnsen on May 7, 2014

      Got the wrong power cable as well. As Henrik I should have received two C13/C14 couplers, but now I have two C7/C8 in addition to the two C13/C14 couplers.

    22. Creator Henrik Backlund on May 7, 2014

      There was a clear cable mixup at the EU repacking facility I think. The cable in the box was UK plug to a IEC 60320 C13/C14 coupler. What would have been expected as an "extra" was an EU plug to a C13/C14 coupler. What was actually supplied was UK plug to C7/C8, which fits neither the wall nor the nomiku. Thankfully I have tons of the proper cables lying around from other devices, but it's good to know in case you don't. Reference to the couplers:

    23. Creator Marshall Simmons on May 5, 2014

      Is anyone else unit making a loud grinding noise? It's coming from the power supply? I have a US unit.


    24. Creator Patrick Scholz on April 30, 2014

      Hey, CE Unit 00052 arrived. The only drawback is that I received an UK power cord (additionally to the grey one in the box itself was another black UK cord in the outer packaging). Stealing a cord from my PC to at least turn the Nomiku on made me stumble over another issue: The power-box emits a low-to-medium buzzing noise, even with the unit turned off. Is that normal?

    25. Creator Miguel Marcos on April 29, 2014

      Just an FYI, I live in Madrid, Spain and received my Nomiku yesterday. Yet to put it in action, though.

    26. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on April 25, 2014

      Hello jdseilson, we're working to finish all of our CE units first, it's all hands on deck. Rest assured, we're coming!

      Thank you Andrew and Max! We have brand new recipes all the time on,, and our facebook page

    27. Creator Max Ziebell on April 23, 2014

      Oh my god! Believe it or not but I was a Sous-Vide-Virgin and waited for my Nomiku date all this time (living in Germany duo to the CE-Sign). My taste-buds exploded and are still sparkling with joy… I ate the best Steak I ever tasted and I made it right in my kitchen. I still can't believe this. Slowly the worry is dawning on me that I'll probably gain weight! Help :-)

    28. Creator Andrew Cook on April 15, 2014

      Came back from trip, to find my UK nomiku waiting for me. Bringing water up to temperature now!

    29. Creator jdskeilson on April 9, 2014

      Any updates on the other backer parties? I haven't seen anything on the DC party yet.

    30. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on April 2, 2014

      Justin, the Chicago party will happen later this year, but no solid plans yet. We're actually on the lookout for a venue--do you have any recommendations? We've run into some issues because it seems like venues are wary of doing sous vide. If you have any ideas, please shoot an email--he's heading up our marketing tour :) Thank you, thank you!

    31. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on April 2, 2014

      Hi Steve! An update will be released soon. We've recently heard back from Customs and are now just waiting for some final logistics to get sorted out between them and our factory. Stay tuned! Thank you so much for your patience!

    32. Creator Steve Walsh on April 2, 2014

      I know things are probably in holding waiting for other parties, but any chance we can get an update on the 220V shipping status? Even a "no change, still waiting on customs paperwork" would be good.

    33. Creator Justin Uy on April 2, 2014

      Heya Lisa! Any word on when the Chicago backer party is going to happen?

    34. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on March 17, 2014

      Hey sorry you're feeling left out sjachapman, we're working to ship to you and will make sure we get you inspired.

    35. Creator sjachapman on March 17, 2014

      Sitting here in the UK feeling left out - half a million dollars and soon we will be two years down the line since funding - bored now

    36. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on March 17, 2014

      Hey everyone thanks for checking in. Our next step is to pay our factory and have it go through customs. If you need to reach me faster please email

    37. Creator maarten on March 17, 2014

      21st is Nowruz a.ka. Persion New Year.
      Maybe you guys mixed that one up with the Chinese one?

      Seriously are you ever going to ship something, the Sansaire which funded what seems like centuries after your products is already arriving at the backers?

    38. Creator Richard Perera on March 16, 2014

      ...and another one for "where are we with the 220v units"? Time is dragging on...

    39. Creator Juergen Kimmel on March 1, 2014

      Chinese New Year has passed, any updates on 240V units?

    40. Creator Jens Hørup Jensen on February 26, 2014

      Chinese New Year has passed weeks ago, any updates on 240V units?

    41. Creator Peter Törlind on February 18, 2014

      Chinese New Year has passed, any updates on 240V units?

    42. Creator Rich McDonough on January 20, 2014

      Sansaire are shipping their 220v product. What's Nomiku doing? #hungry

    43. Creator Steve Walsh on January 19, 2014

      Another Bump on an update for the 220/240V version. Is it going to make it out in time before the factories close down, or will there be further delays?

    44. Creator Derek Chan on January 19, 2014

      Umm any updates on 220V? Its looking like we won't make it in time before the Chinese New Year factory shutdown.

    45. Creator Rick Skubic on January 16, 2014

      Lisa, any idea when the Chicago backer party is going to happen?

    46. Creator Benni Klomfass on January 9, 2014

      i also wanted to get some information about the 240v ones, i'm one of the 123 backers that backed for 2!

    47. Creator Vhils on January 7, 2014

      Im still waiting for mine since oct 2013. Delivery out of the US.
      Please give me some feedback soon

    48. Creator Steve & Karen Anderson on December 13, 2013

      Lisa, thank you for responding so quickly. I have sent you an email reply. Let me know if you do not receive it.

    49. Creator Lisa Q. Fetterman on December 13, 2013

      Hello Steve, I sent you an email! Hope to connect soon.

    50. Creator Steve & Karen Anderson on December 13, 2013

      I have a problem with my Nomiku and have sent multiple email requests to with no response. What is the best way to communicate with someone that help resolve my problem? Thanks. Steve
