Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • This kitchen product and Wi-Fi app are easy to use. You can monitor your cooking from anywhere you have wireless access.
  • With a little prep and post-cooking work, chances are good your food will retain the level of moisture you like.
  • The cooker unit is nicely sized to fit in most deep kitchen pots.

CONS

  • Compared to Anova's Bluetooth app, the Wi-Fi app for iOS users is light on features.
  • Android users have to wait for a compatible Wi-Fi app; it's currently in beta.
  • The Wi-Fi app and Bluetooth app are not integrated (yet).
If you're interested in building up a connected kitchen incorporating Wi-Fi and the sous vide cooking method, the Precision Cooker Wi-Fi could fit into your plans. With the immersion circulator, you immerse food, which is sealed in a plastic bag, into a pot of water at a controlled temperature. Anova's newer unit differs from its Bluetooth-driven predecessor, the Precision Cooker, thanks to the integration of Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi capability means that you can start cooking your meal--or monitor its progress--from the couch, your yard, the treadmill, or your conference room, using the iOS app (Android version coming soon).

Anova is one of the first to deliver a useful connected kitchen appliance. The ability to come home to a nice, cooked meal with minimum preparation and the freshest ingredients makes the Precision Cooker a great investment for the beginner cook or a seasoned chef.

One minor annoyance I found was a continuous beeping sound after setting the time and temp. I corrected this by pressing the start/stop button twice to shut off the device and turn it back on.

I'm happy enough with the core functionality to consider the $199 Anova asks for the Precision Cooker WiFi reasonable. After all, not that long ago you'd be looking at ten times such a figure - if not more - to get started with sous-vide.

For four years now we’ve been testing sous vide cooking tools, and the Anova Precision Cooker WI-FI makes the most sense for a home chef due to its low price, ease of use, and ability to adjust to pots and containers of almost any size.
