  1. Is it empty? It might not move once you have stuff in it.
  2. I posted in March about having my APO replaced due to a leak. The replacement which arrived mid-March does not heat to the set temperature or properly display the correct internal temperature. I contacted Anova support and as directed, I jumped through the trouble shooting hoops, none of which made a difference. I want to return the oven for a refund. I was told that since the original order was in November on 2021 I do not qualify for a refund but they will send a replacement. I have requested the issue be escalated to someone that can authorize a refund as I have had the new oven only about 60 days. I loved the APO when it was working properly. I did not love it enough to repeatedly go through the hassle of wrestling it back into a box and driving to the UPS store, waiting for then unpacking a new one and getting it set up .
  3. My new CSO is up and running. The instructions specify tap water but I wonder if anyone uses distilled water? Also, the instructions specify emptying the water tank after use. Does anyone do that?

    Bacon Jam

    I like bacon jam but really, really like bacon baklava. This is the recipe I used https://www.sunset.com/recipe/bacon-baklava . I usually make a half recipe in an 8x8 because I have no self-control and devour any leftovers.
  5. I have a traditional knife block which I keep covered with a shower cap to prevent dust from getting in the slots. It looks funny but I can remove it if someone is coming over.
  6. @TdeV, I used the sous vide function on some ribs (too rainy and cold to smoke or grill). As best I can tell, the new oven might get a bit steamier than the original.
  7. Couldn't resist. I'll give my leaky one to my engineer son.
  8. There was a fun, active forum associated with that website. It deteriorated after the sale and after trying a couple other forums I found eGullet. A number of the members of the original Taunton forum migrated to a Delphi format as CooksTalk Classic and then to Facebook Cooks talk Classic FB group. The Facebook group is a different group that the "official" Fine Cooking FB Community. The Delphi group is not very active but the Facebook group maintains a core of long-time Taunton hold-overs.
  9. I just got my replacement set up and haven't used it with steam yet. It arrived just in time, my CSO started leaking yesterday.

    This Crofton brand measuring cup is from Aldi. The lines are in the right place as verified by water and a scale but note the labels on the lines!
  11. Prepared the second of 2 cheap CBs from Aldi's. The first was very salty. Soaked the second one overnight, dumped the water, braised in beer as per my usual. The second specimen was not overly salty. Maybe it was the soaking step, maybe it was something else.
  12. Please explain how you desalinate.
  13. My oven is also being replaced (due to drip tray overflow issues). I'm grateful for the good customer service but annoyed by the hassle. I kept my original box (in a guest bathtub!) but that wasn't a requirement for the return.
  14. @rotuts, thanks for the advice.
  15. Aldi had points on sale last week. I bought two. Braised one so far. It was the saltiest corned beef I ever prepared. I rinsed it well before I cooked it. I have purchased corned beef from Aldi in years past and always enjoyed it. I am thinking of soaking the remaining one in several changes of cold water before I cook it.
