@Davor Yes soap will damage and kill bacteria, but only what it touches. Unlike bacteria, soap is not a living and growing organism. bacteria will be 1,000 of cells deep, while the soap can only damage the outer layers of the bacteria colony. This is why mechanical scrubbing is required to remove the food debris housing the bacteria. From my days in the food lab the actual kill count is remarkably low for normal soap

Soap does not kill bacteria, it simply removes it

For two steaks the temperature accuracy may be fine, but when you load up a whole party things go wrong. With plenty of packages in a vessel, water loves to isolate itself in heat patterns, even with a circulator. The Joule should be better as it has the circulator exit at the bottom of the vessel, not halfway up the side.
