Update: The Wi-Fi model is sold out at $150, but the Bluetooth version is still available.
Lifehacker has a great explainer on Sous-Vide cooking for you to check out, but the basic idea is that you seal the food in plastic bags, and then cook it in precisely heated water over a longer period of time. It sounds weird, but trust me when I say that it works like magic.
Every time we post this, we get some snark about the Wi-Fi connectivity, so just know that it’s optional. If you connect your phone, you can find a recipe via Anova’s app, and automatically program the cooker with one tap, but you certainly don’t need to use it.
If you have Amazon credit you want to spend, the nearly identical Bluetooth model is marked down to $149 there as well. The only difference is that it uses Bluetooth to connect to your phone, rather than Wi-Fi.
