Anova Precision Cooker Bluetooth Review | Sous Vide Cooking
For the longest time I’ve been trying to grill the perfect steak at home. I have cooked some awesome steaks on the grill but I would have to sit, watch, time it, and use the thermostat to monitor the inside temperature. Constantly checking it.
I would even use the the pushing on your hand technique for doneness. The steak would still have a gradient of doneness and I would end up overcooking them half the time. It was never really perfect like a restaurant steak were they have a 2 inch thick steak with no gradient of doneness just solid pink. Now I have found that resutrants do have some commercial grade tools that makes it easier.
My new best friend
I started talking with a friend at work about my new food blog (The Food Dad) and how I wanted to cook a perfect steak. He mentioned cooking with a Sous Vide. Of course I’ve never heard of cooking with a Sous Vide and honestly couldn’t even say it right at first. Which I’ve found people say it in many different ways. I say (Sue) (Veed).
I had to look it up and see what was so cool about cooking with a Sous Vide. Well after hours and hours of researching I started to realize cooking with a Sous Vide takes a lot of the guess work out of cooking! It seemed like the margin for error was super low and much easier to get perfect results every time. So of course I had to buy one.
That’s when I found the Anonva Prescison Cooker. (Sous Vide) Which they do have two version one that’s Bluetooth and the other is WiFi. I thought to myself why would I ever need a WiFi version. So I got the Bluetooth. Now I wish I had the WiFi and I’ll tell you why after I tell you how it works.
What is a Sous Vide?
The way Anova Sous Vide (precision cooker) works is by attaching it on the side of a pot or tub of water. It brings the water to a precise temperature and when you place your food in the bath it will cook it to that temperature. So it’s hard to ever over cook you food since the temperature will never go above what you set. So in a nutshell sous vide is cooking in a water bath.
