Cook like a pro with your sous vide sous chef.
The hottest technique in haute eateries is a not-so-hot (126° to 183°F), hours-long process that brings out food’s optimum tenderness and flavor(it’s a French method known as sous vide).
Chefs vacuum- seal meat, fish, veggies, or fruit in plastic, and then immerse in precisely temperature-controlled and circulated water. Making it easier to master this professional approach in your own kitchen is Anova’s Culinary Cooker/Immersion Circulator, which connects to your smartphone. Using what looks like an oversized restaurant peppermill, the device heats water to the right level, and keeps it churning for the perfect time in any cooking vessel—all with the touch of a button.
