Is that capacity? Or average use?
Every sous vide setup I've ever seen or used cycled. After a few minutes bringing the water
up to temperature, it would shut down, except for brief bursts every now and again to keep the temperature within range.
With my setup I'm seeing it on for less than a second, every 20 or 30 seconds.
Cumulative energy used is very low.
