  1. I feel that's an over-estimation. I don't know how many APO users are in these forums but probably at least a dozen, that would equate to 3 cracked tanks. We aren't shy about raising an issue. It is happening I'm sure, but not to that extent. I would recommend you get off the fence, order one and enjoy its benefits. p
  2. Amazon has dropped the price of our winning 10-inch cast-iron skillet, the Lodge 10.25-Inch Cast Iron Skillet, to $13.99* for a limited time. Only in the US though, Canadians will have to pay the regular price 😞 p
  3. My apologies, you're correct. PTFE IS teflon - I didn't know that. p
  4. I did a search before starting this topic and the only one with relevance was back in 2010. I've been using silpats (or knock-offs) for many years and cleaning was always a bugaboo. I purchased this: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0899TH9H6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 a month or so ago and have nothing but praise. There are a few different iterations, but this is what I got based on price and description. Cheap, can be cut to fit, 15.75 x 13 inch, good up to 500F, most drips/spills pop or wipe off, no staining, no "te
  5. Happens to me exactly - racks when hot will not slide out - I could probably move the whole oven before they move - I'm debating a light application of some fine sandpaper, but still at the debating stage. p
  6. From my experience (couple times a week and not necessarily with steam) it would probably work out to 6 months as opposed to someone who used it more frequently. p
  7. More on supplied pan warping: I contacted support as it happened to me, here is their response: " Thank you for contacting the support team! The pan warping under high temperatures is normal especially when food is not evenly distributed on the pan. The pan will return to its normal shape after it is cooled. Also, we are coming up with a pan with better heat resistance. More on this soon." "Is normal"? Well yes, if the pan is sub-standard. "More on this soon" ? How soon? p

    It seems small and constrained by cook zones. According to "how-to" videos I watched the temp sensor is really fragile. Won't bake bread or roast a chicken. Door appears flimsy, watching videos I kept thinking of the "Easy Bake Oven", it uses light as well 👅 The concept and theory is good, but limited by practical restrictions and considerations. I doubt many of us will be adopters.
  9. I queried Anova about their Anova skill for Amazon's Alexa, here's their response: Yes it should work. It's quite new so let me know if it isn't working for you or if you find any bugs. Cheers, David Liu Customer Success Associate Anova Culinary I like the phrasing "Yes it should work", then again maybe not, your mileage may vary 👅 I appreciate this skill is quite new (perhaps not tested fully), and they do not promote or advertise it. Anyone trying it is on their own as a beta tester Just so you know. p
  10. This was a salmon filet and it was not moist after the cooking (over cooking?) p
  11. Interesting/concerning event - I was baking something @ 450 for 20 minutes no steam manually Huge amounts of steam expelled from bottom right corner and condensation forming in water tank. Should I worry? p

    Food recalls

    Damn those inspectors, they just can't leave well enough alone: https://globalnews.ca/news/7548666/yukon-jerky-recalled/#:~:text=Yukon flag Canada (isolated with clipping path).&text=Yukon residents who purchased beef,the psychoactive ingredient for cannabis. p
  13. Did I mention there's a Alexa skill for it: "With the Anova Oven Smart Home skill, you can start cooking by saying "Alexa, preheat my oven to 350 degrees." As your food cooks, you’ll be able to keep an eye on the oven's temperature and food probe readings by saying "Alexa, what is the temperature of my oven?" or "Alexa, what is the temperature of my food in the oven?" If you want to cook in Sous Vide mode, the Anova Oven Smart Home skill couldn't make this easier. Simply say "Alexa, Sous Vide fish in my oven at 125 degrees" or "Alexa, Sous Vide fish in my oven at 125 degrees fo
