If you’re looking for a well-designed and well-priced sous vide circulator, think about the Anova Sous Vide WiFi Precision Cooker, which is getting favorable reviews from passionate home cooks.
Sous vide aficionados know when food is slow-cooked at the right temperature for just the right amount of time it will achieve…well, something akin to culinary nirvana. Like most circulators, this Anova wand has a heating element and a fan at the bottom, but at only 2 1/2 pounds and 14 inches long, it’s easy to pick up and store away in a drawer. Super-sturdy, with a detachable clamp to secure it to your pot, and a temperature range that goes as low as 77℉ and as high as 210℉, the Anova is designed to cook food in up to five gallons of water (which could accommodate, say, around five steaks). Plus, at $159, it’s economically priced.
The Anova has a bright, LCD screen that’s easy to view. The larger number shows the current temperature and the smaller screen right below shows the desired temperature and the cooking time. The temperature of the water can be set manually by using the dial on the wand, or remotely on your smartphone through Anova’s iOS or Android app. The app’s easy-to-navigate features include how-to guides for cooks of every level, recipes from celebrity chefs and food editors, recipe-sharing capabilities, video tutorials, and more.
Voice-activated home assistants aren’t just for ordering groceries or asking about the weather. To cook with your home assistant (“Alexa, turn the temperature down to 150 degrees!”), you simply download the Anova app.
