Think of it this way: an Anova or 159 limes.

Think of it this way: an Anova or 159 limes.

This morning the AP is reporting "The average advertised price of a lime in U.S. supermarkets was 56 cents last week, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That's up from 37 cents the week ending March 28 and 31 cents a year ago."

 

Curiosity abounds.

This should be a new topic, but the mystery is not hard to figure out.  Here is the raw data from the USDA:

 

http://www.ams.usda....s/fvwretail.pdf

 

 

Note that last week the total number of stores with ads for limes is 35, whereas a year ago the total number of stores with ads for limes was 1175.  If you were selling limes at $1.25 a piece would you bother to adverise the fact?

 

Seven minutes till my roast is done cooking in the Anova pot, but I think I'll leave it a little longer.

Oh, the mystery I was caught up in was when and where I was going to get my Anova for 159 x 56 cents = $89 :biggrin:

Mine will get here Thursday, but now that the price of limes has come down I'm having second thoughts.

She showed up tonight, went straight from the box into the water. Cooked some skate at 48C (I liked it, my gf wanted more cook). Some chuck steaks are in the tanke now at 55, Purring away in a lexan container covered with a blanket, until I can be like the cool kids and properly mod a cooler. Not sure exaclty what part of the chuck they're from, so unclear if they'll be ready tomorrow or Saturday.

 

Here's a thought: the packaging foam is high quality and nicely designed, as others have noticed. If someone could find a decent, reasonably priced piece of soft luggage that's the right size, we'd have an instant travel case.

No interest in a travel case? The foam insert is about 16" x 9" x 4". 

 

After a quick search I found this. But I think some simple, soft luggage-style bag would be better.

How fragile is the Anova? I don't think it's a bad idea at all, however I don't know that I'd spend 25% of the Avona cost on a case. But then, in most scenarios I can imagine taking it somewhere, I'd just throw it on the passenger seat.

I'm thinking all you'd need is an inexpensive case or bag that's about the right size for the foam insert. $50 is more than I'd like to spend (maybe not unreasonable if you travelled with it a lot, which I don't anticipate). But if we found something for $20 or $25?

This is what you might be looking for  http://www.carrycase...ses/t-1712.html

For $13, it's pretty cheap!

 

Though it might require some foam shaving.

That's really close. I'll have to see how much room there is to thin the foam.

3.5 inch depth

 

cutting it a bit too close by my reckoning.

The foam is about 16.5 by 9.5 by almost 4 inchs.  Oops - see someone else has already measured it.

That's cool. Always measure twice cut once
