Description

  • Pros have been doing it for years, and now you can too. Sous vide (pronounced sue-veed) is a cooking technique that utilizes highly precise temperature control in a circulating bath of water to deliver consistent, edge-to-edge perfect results, with virtually no risk of overcooking your food.
  • Our best-seller, only better. The first Anova Precision Cooker launched in 2014 and started a home-cooking revolution — bringing sous vide to the masses and making Anova a household name in the process. This third generation of our flagship sous vide circulator adds key improvements, making perfect results easier to achieve than ever before. What’s different: 1) We upgraded to use dual band WiFi for improved connectivity. 2) A two-line touch screen display allows you to quickly view time and temperature.
  • Cook, browse recipes, and monitor your meals remotely via your mobile device. Whether you’re seeking inspiration for your next ambitious weekend meal, or just want to make an easy weeknight dinner — do it from anywhere via the connected Anova App.
  • The adjustable clamp makes it an ideal fit on nearly any pot that is deep enough to meet the minimum water depth requirements. A removable stainless steel skirt on the cooker’s lower half makes it easy as a twist of the wrist to detach and clean the skirt either by hand or in the dishwasher.
  • With 1100 Watts of power and a flow rate of 8 Liters/min, the Anova Precision Cooker 3.0 has the power to get to your desired temperature quick, and is a perfect tool for big batch cooks.

    very easy to use, works with a variety of different size bowls snd containers. We have two, and I have not been able to get the app to connect to either. There are multiple apps for anova on the iphone app store. None of them will connect to the devices I purchased, however luckily you don’t really need that to operate it. Paid extra for Wi-Fi enabled device and that feature completely fails to work. So that was a waste of money. I have kept my iOS version up-to-date, and ensure the app is also up-to-date. Doesn’t matter. The instructions within the app(s) do not match the feature and functions of the devices. Good thing they work flawlessly unattended. From what I have read it is related to the fact that the company was purchased and the new owners don’t support the devices.

    Por lo que pagas es buena calidad, va grados abajo de la temperatura que marca, ejemplo si son 60 grados en el sois vide probando con varios termómetros se queda abajo por 1 o dos grados de temperatura, aún así hace su trabajo bien

    ***UPDATE: About 3 years later from my initial purchase and review, giving it 5 Stars now!! It still works like a champ. I do not use the wi-fi though. It kept disconnecting and honestly, I do not need to start and stop it with my phone. You literally tap the screen to set the time and temp, it is so easy! This makes THE BEST chicken, steaks, chuck roast, fajitas, etc. It turns inexpensive cuts into heaven! You do not need a vacuum sealer. I use ziplock bags and lower the food inside of the bag in the water and the water surrounding the bag helps crush the ziplock as you press the air out and seal it. Google water displacement method. You do not need to make this complicated!!! Keep it simple. Once you are done cooking, pull the bag out and submerge it in a bowl with ice water and leave it for an hour. Then you remove your meat, pat it completely dry. You do not want excess liquid to boil your meat when searing. Remove as much of the liquid from the meat as possible with a paper towel. Then, sear the outside quickly in a hot pan or under a broiler just enough to add a golden brown crust. Not too long, because the meat is already cooked. That is it! Everyone will think you are the most amazing chef. THE BEST PURCHASE!!! SOOO WORTH IT!!! This is my update after several years of use. Still a huge fan!

    So far so good. It does make noise the entire time it is on. I guess I thought they were all supposed to be quiet. The noise is not super loud. I took a video, but decided not to post it due to the video making the noise seem louder than it is truly is in person. It is a low humming sound. I guess it’s a good reminder that you have something cooking. You probably will not notice it from another room in the house. 4 stars only, because I thought it would be silent. Maybe it truly deserves 5 stars.

    I love that it is wifi! At first, I ordered a cheaper one that was not wifi as I initially thought, “who really needs that feature?” I sent it back thankfully. I LOVE THE WIFI!! I have lots of wifi products in my home already…I admit it, I am hooked on controlling things via my phone from any location! LOL

    Buy it. You will not regret it. Yes, it is a little more expensive, but your food will be amazing and it is fun! This one did not take very long to heat up either. I am impressed. This will cook your meat to the perfect temperature. You never have to worry again about overcooking. Click the helpful button below if you found this review helpful at all. Thx.

    Bought as a present for my girlfriend. I have an older Anova precision cooker already. Improved screws for attaching the unit to the pot and unit to the bracket.

    Worked great right out of the box! Hooked up to Wifi network and works well with the phone app or with the controls on the unit.

    Customer service from Anova has been great with my other one. Lots of heating power. We cooked 2 turkeys (in pieces) in a medium sized cooler and it had no problem keeping the temperature fit the 7 hour cooking time.

    Fast shipping too! Highly recommend this sous vide machine.

    My first attempt using this machine was an expensive steak, which came out perfectly after a pleasantly easy cooking experience. I made this purchase knowing exactly what I wanted to achieve and only after having scoured the internet for reviews and tips. The research paid off and I’m going to share it.

    This unit was always in the top five of any review site I found; it was often in the top two. My reasons for selecting the Anova from the list of well-reviewed devices were:

    1) Ease of use: six simple buttons and a large display that my older eyes appreciate are neatly organized unto a control panel on top of the unit that is slanted for easy access.

    2) Power: I felt that 1000 watts was a nice compromise. It’s important that the unit be capable of preheating in a reasonable time and maintain a constant temperature in a larger vessel (if I want to use one). I didn’t believe that my needs (8 or less people) justified the additional expense of a more powerful unit.

    3) Comments from somebody who purchased the competing, well-reviewed unit and emphatically lamented the lack of any controls at all on the device itself (i.e. that device relies on a mobile phone app for control and monitoring). As this reviewer pointed out: these units are simple water heaters; that’s all they do. There is absolutely no reason to overcomplicate, glorify or cutsey-fy that simple fact. You will do well to consider that during your evaluation. The Anova also provides an app but one has the option to use it or not. I have not yet attempted to do so, so I cannot speak for ease of connecting this unit to wifi.

    4) Price: attractive considering the features, relative to the competition.

    Anybody who is considering sous vide needs to carefully consider what it is and what it is not.

    • First off, if you like your meat rare, well-done or charred, don’t waste your money. Lovers of medium-well should also consider carefully. Rare is much easier to accomplish on a grill or skillet (i.e. flash sear on each side and done). Likewise well-done or charred. Medium-well that is truly medium-well can be a bit tricky to achieve consistently and may therefore warrant this device but, in my opinion, it negates most of the benefits (e.g. tender and juicy).

    • It works best on small to medium-sized meats or fish. You get foods that are perfectly cooked from edge to edge and crackling with flavor every time, because they are slow cooked at a constant temperature inside a vacuum-packed bag that seals in all of the goodness. Assuming that you start off with good cuts of meat, you will end up with flavor, tenderness and juiciness that will blow you away.

    • You can get a really nice but relatively thin crust on steaks and crispy skin on fish/poultry by finishing with a pan sear. Tips will be shared below.

    • You cannot get the intense BBQ flavor or thick crusting of grilling but you can get a thinner crusting and some of that BBQ flavor by searing with a grill or blowtorch. Sous vide is probably not for you if you like your steak infused with the smokiness of a grill; you may find this method to be too bland for your liking.

    • You’re likely to never use this device if you are always in a hurry at mealtime. Sous vide takes time, which is the secret of its tender and flavorful results. The included app and wifi capabilities of this device may be useful to those who lack the necessary time. Set everything up before you leave home and, later in the day, use the app to activate the unit (i.e. such that the food is cooked when you get home).

    • Sous vide is not suitable for most vegetables. You can make it work for some, notably carrots and corn on the cob, but not for most. It’s also not for large chunks of meat (e.g. roasts, hams or whole birds), which I believe do far better in an oven. There are some who claim that they have successfully cooked a roast sous vide but I prefer an oven at 250 to 275 with a good meat thermometer. Tri-tip is an exception to this rule; it does quite well with sous vide.

    • Everybody at the meal must like their meat cooked to the same level of doneness. I suppose that you could accommodate a guest who wants rare (i.e. briefly seared on each side) or well done (i.e. cooked to death) but anything in between would be better handled with sous vide and, unless you have more than one machine, everybody must like their meat the same way.

    My experiences:

    • I am a foodie who enjoys cooking. I want to enjoy the results of my cooking and I am willing to pay for good quality food. I like my meat medium rare to medium. I like a good crust on a steak and crispy skin on poultry or fish fillets. I got tired of the mediocre meats that I was able to purchase at the supermarket. I now patronize butchers and fishmongers, who sell high quality goods at a much higher price.

    • At these price points, I want to do everything in my power to maximize flavor and minimize the risk (i.e. of me screwing something up). Grilling is fun, sauté and/or baking is fine but the results are all-too-often inconsistent, especially for thick steaks and some poultry (e.g. duck): it’s far too easy to get perfectly-cooked flesh and wimpy skin or crispy skin and dead flesh.

    • Hence my interest in sous vide. Cheap was not an objective. If I’m going to do it at all, I’m going to do it right. So, I also purchased the Anova 12L cooking container and vacuum sealer. The vacuum sealer is unnecessary if you are adept at using Ziploc bags and the displacement method of creating a vacuum; I am not, so vacuum sealer for me. The cooking container is not cheap but there are several reasons that I am happy I bought it: 1) its large but not enormous size fits perfectly inside my sink; 2) the included rack enables me to hang eight bags without impeding water circulation; 3) the cover minimizes evaporation; 4) I can see through the transparent walls from any angle and ensure that none of the bags have sunk, or have sprung a leak (especially important when cooking at higher temperatures).

    • Everything came well packaged and nothing was damaged. Unpacking was easy (i.e. no chainsaw required) and setup was a breeze. I am very pleased by the high quality of everything. The instructions for the sous vide unit are adequate. I did have to play around a bit with the clip, until I got the hang of it, but everything else was clear enough, even for a klutz like me. I found the controls to be very easy to use and the display is very easy to read. Temperature wavered by 0.1 or 0.2 degrees until preheating was complete but thereafter it was rock solid, possibly because I am using a covered container inside the sink, which provides some degree of insulation. It makes a noticeable hum while operating, which did not annoy me but it probably could annoy some. When the timer expires, it makes a couple of noticeable beeps. The vacuum sealer was more challenging; I had to watch some tutorials – I did mention that I’m a klutz – but this is not a review for that unit.

    • Most importantly, I got highly-satisfying results from the onset. I am delighted with this purchase. As long as your expectations are in alignment with the capabilities and limitations of sous vide, I am confident that you will also be delighted with this unit.

    Tips:

    1) Do some research! I especially appreciate tips and recipes provided by Food Lab’s J. Kenji Lopez-Alt at the SeriousEats site and Helen Rennie’s tutorials at YouTube.

    2) Read the instructions and follow them. The two individuals I named above will tell you everything you need to know about temperatures and timings for myriad types of food and doneness.

    3) Temperature is critical; always cook at the temperature advised to achieve the level of doneness that you prefer, no matter how big your pot is or what it’s made of or how many bags are inside it. Don’t worry too much about letting things cook longer than the recipe calls for. Most meats are very forgiving; up to an hour longer than recommended won’t make a noticeable difference. Fish and seafood are much less forgiving; up to about 15 minutes longer than recommended is maximum. Eggs are even less forgiving of overtime (i.e. if you want your yolks less than hard).

    4) I have two sinks, so I put the container into a sink and fill it with hot water right out of the tap. Cooking occurs in the sink, covered. I believe that the cover and confined space of the sink enhance heat retention. After I’m done, water is simply dumped into the sink.

    5) Don’t forget to add your favorite aromatics to into your bags. Do NOT add fat of any kind to meats except fish or seafood (see below).

    6) I prepare steak with a generous sprinkling of sea or Himalayan salt on both sides and letting it sit for about 30 minutes before adding the aromatics and sealing the bag.

    7) To cook more than one piece of fish in the same bag, it’s advisable to add some oil to the bag to prevent sticking. Vacuum sealers and liquids do not get along, so: a) use a Ziploc bag and water displacement; b) brush the fish with a light film of oil; c) place thin pats of butter inside the bag.

    8) A pound of raw, peeled and deveined shrimp should be tossed in 1/3 tsp baking soda (NOT powder) for about 30 minutes before cooking to enhance texture. I like to cook it together with butter, tarragon and several cloves of crushed garlic for about 30 minutes at 132 degrees.

    9) The biggest trick to sous vide is the searing process after the cooking is done. There are a million different opinions about how to best sear. You will find some great advice at the websites mentioned above, so I’m going to focus on what I like. I do not much care for the bitterness added to the flavor by placing non-clarified butter in the pan and/or using a blowtorch. I do, however, like a dark brown crust on my steaks and crispy skin on my duck / salmon. Searing immediately after removal from the bag did not achieve optimal results, no matter how much paper towel I applied. There is too much moisture bleeding and too little time to achieve the crust I sought without adversely affecting the perfect doneness. So, here’s what I do.

    9a. Meat is removed from the bag and triple wrapped in paper towel. Steak is placed in refrigerator for 10 minutes, rewrapped in new paper towel and put back in the refrigerator for 5 minutes longer. Duck is also wrapped but left in the refrigerator longer, until it has completely cooled, which enables a longer sear.

    9b. After removing the meat from the refrigerator and unwrapping it, I preheat my aluminum pan to medium high heat. I prefer aluminum because it preheats more evenly and reacts more quickly to heat changes than cast iron does (e.g. when my stovetop is too hot and I need to turn down the heat pronto). I use ghee in my pan because I like the rich flavor that it adds but any oil with a high smoke point will work too. Since ghee has moisture and milk fats removed, it doesn’t burn as butter does.

    9c. The pan is ready when ghee just starts to smoke (at about 450 degrees). Oils with higher smoke points will be shimmering but not smoking. Immediately add the meat (i.e. don’t permit the fat to smoke more than seconds). For duck: place it skin side down for about 7 minutes, jiggling and pressing it with a spatula every once in a while. Start peeking for doneness after about 3 minutes and every 30 seconds thereafter, permitting the skin to get as brown as you like (up to 10 minutes). Finally, flip the piece and cook it for 30 seconds more. For other meats: sear on one side for a minute, flip, and cook for a minute more. If the upside is not crusty enough, flip again and continue to flip every 30 seconds until both sides are satisfyingly crusty. It’s a myth that you ruin the crust by flipping. For all meats, you may want to pour the cooking juices over the meat (not the skin) to add flavor and warmth.

    Have to play around with it and experiment with different temperature and time.
    Very useful to use the app in order to get recipes and follow closely the cooking time.
