Sous vide is the secret to many restaurants' success—not only does it allow you to easily prep food in advance, but it also ensures food is evenly cooked throughout the inside. In other words, it's fail-proof. The Anova Precision Cooker WiFi comes with both WiFi and bluetooth compatibility, so you can monitor the status of your food from outside the kitchen. A splash-proof touch screen display is easy to read and adjust. With 1000 watts of power, it can heat up to 8 litres of water with +/- 0.1˚C accuracy. A length of 32.5 cm (12.8") makes it compact enough to keep in a kitchen drawer or cupboard. Use the Anova app for thousands of recipes and tips from a lively community of home cooks, who'll show you sous vide is for much more than steaks! You can use it to make hummus, puddings, homemade gin, and so much more.
Using a sous vide cooker is simple. All you have to do set the temperature on your cooker and place it in a container of water. Once the water reaches the desired temperature, place your ingredients in the water bath. Your ingredients should be in sealed bags with as much air removed from it as possible, so it stays submerged. (Place a heat-proof bowl or plate above it if needed.) Leave your ingredients in for as much time as your recipe requests. If you'd like, quickly sear your food so it gets gorgeously browned exteriors and don't worry about the insides, as they have already been cooked in the water bath.
Why we love it
'The Anova sous vide cooker does a majority of the work for you. You can set and forget it anywhere from 30 minutes to three days, and once you're ready to cook, it's done in a flash—and done perfectly, with consistent results. I always use it when expecting guests, especially if it's a barbecue.'
