  1. Me again - this is like a pyramid scam - the more of you that sign up, the more fish I get 😜


    We want more families to enjoy our healthy, sustainably sourced seafood.

    That's why we are offering $75 off if you join today! 

    But you'll need to hurry because this offer will expire tomorrow.

  2. Not sure what you want me to "expound" on, The BSO is an excellent product and is heads above any comparable product - does many things exceedingly well. The APO just does it a little better (3 separate discrete heat sources which can be combined) especially as it brings precise steam injection to the party which other than the CSO (although undersized) is not available to the average consumer.

  3. BIG!!! to do about the new firmware push over at Anova Culinary Community Forums:




    Seems the newest firmware push blew up pretty much everyone's oven - over 70 (and counting) unhappy campers - Anova has posted a fix and reverted back to a previous firmware version


    At the the moment the only way to prevent a reoccurance is to disconnect from wifi


    I asked about that and the response was "Will look into this for you. At this time there is not, short of disconnecting the oven from Wifi"


    A further comment was "The last day’s experience clearly shows that this should be your top priority. One should be able to choose if when to download and install new software, What if you’re cooking for a big occasion and the oven starts behaving like it did this time? Probably happened to some people this time. So please, let us choose when to install new software."


    Which is obviously the correct response Anova's wasn't


    I still stand by all my kudos for this device and see this as just teething problems, but there does seem to be a disconnect between the manufacturer and the user

    Thankfully, I have my device set to my needing to confirm upgrades (very bad experience with Calibre Companion). So I'm usually behind the times when it comes to upgrades.

    Why do you use  Calibre Companion as opposed to plain Calibre - CC is a paid app whereas Calibre is free - I use it with a Fire HD tablet and previously nwith many other devices (Sony EReaders etc) - works flawlessly



  5. Maybe mine isn't connected to wifi as its been a while since I've used the app, so I got no upgrade prompts, but as I say I usually use it in manual mode - if that power cycling was universal then every APO would have been doing the same thing!!!



  6. I seldom use the app as I find it just as easy manually make my choices - doing bread at the moment - preheated to 150, turned off to proof - preheating to 482 100%steam - will put in for 5 minutes and reduce heat to 350 bake, steam off for 20 - 30 minutes (going by degree of browning)

    I think the differences among air fryers might make this tough. 

    I was thinking of your bog standard round pot, heater above as opposed to air fryer "ovens", which I'm guessing what most people have, present company excluded - us egulleteers just can't leave a good thing alone 😇

  8. @ Anna N & other Air Fryers - have you ever found "Air Fryer instructions" on any foods you've purchased?


    Most preparation instructions are for oven or microwave.


    Would they not be helpful as not everyone has access to someone like Anna N "to take one for the team" and benefit us with her experiences?

    I don't understand because I defrosted it in its packaging. Then I salted it like you'd salt anything before roasting it, so no - it wasn't desiccated.




    "desiccated" was a joke but if you defrosted it in its original packaging there was probably some liquid retained in the fish - but not to beat a dead horse (or salmon) bottom line it looked great and apparently tasted fine as well.
