A sous vide lets you evenly cook your food at a specific temperature, making it pretty darn hard to overcook your meals. The Anova precision cooker is an immersion circulator, meaning it moves and heats the water it’s submerged in. It connects over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, so you can monitor your food's progress from anywhere in the house. There's also an app with more 1,000 recipes. In short, to use a sous vide, all you do is place seasoned food in a plastic bag, drop the bag in a deep pot or container of water, and let the Anova cook it at the right temperature—anywhere between 77°F and 210°F.
