PROS

  • The Anova Precision Cooker is one of the most affordable tools for using conventional pots as sous-vide cookers.
  • The second generation model supports a wide variety of pots.
  • The Anova's built-in Bluetooth support allows you to control it using a smartphone app.

CONS

  • To use the Bluetooth app you must be within Bluetooth range of the cooker. A Wi-Fi version is in the works.
  • Some reviewers found the Anova slow to heat water to the required temperature and underpowered for maintaining it.
  • Some reviewers complained of poor documentation.
Now in its second generation, the Anova Precision Cooker is a sous-vide immersion circulator designed for consumers. Sous-vide, a cooking technique that previously required costly equipment, involves placing food sealed in a plastic bag into a pot of water maintained at a low temperature. The Anova turns a conventional pot into a sous-vide cooker that you can control using a Bluetooth-enabled Android smartphone or iPhone.

I've never had better hamburgers, you haven't lived until you've had a chicken breast that's actually tender and juicy instead of dried-out from overcooking to safe temperatures, and you'll never ruin another $25 cut of tenderloin by leaving it on the grill for just a minute too long ever again. But the #1 benefit, for me and my household, is how *easy* it is, and more than that, the minimal amount of effort involved.

Of the nearly half-dozen sous vide machines I’ve tried over the years, there are a few reasons I like the Precision Cooker best. First, at $179, it’s one of the cheapest sous vide machines available. Second, it has a drop-dead-simple interface; anybody can figure out how to use it.

Makes really yummy steak!
Sous vide is a cooking method used by some high end restaurant. This device brings that technology home to an average user. It is bluetooth connected so you can choose a recipe from the Anova app and it will set the temperature and timer accordingly. It took Anova a while to get the app out to public, but when it finally did it gets the job done and I don't have much complain about it.
