  1. Electrolux buying Anova?

    It's actually an ARM processor, which I believe does allow for USB programming.
  2. Electrolux buying Anova?

    I recently had a fellow member's Anova here on my bench for repair, and I was a little surprised to find a USB port tied to the PCB along with the usual headers and things. I can't help but wonder if that will allow some communication with the unit? You can see it in the upper right corner of the pic below. I wasn't too keen on experimenting with someone else's stuff, but maybe someday after that extra glass of wine or something I will crack open my own Anova and see if there is any I/O capability in there. Might just be to allow for firmware revisions or something too...
  3. No I hear you, and I'm not saying I disagree. I'm sure there are loads of great things we are unable to get because of bureaucracy/ignorance/unfounded science, but I think that some, like pasteurization discussed above, are probably the right thing to do in the long run.
  4. So plutonium? Lead in baby formula? Farmed human meat? I think there has to be a middle ground somewhere...
  5. This is brilliant, thanks for the idea!
  6. @weedy man you should have just packed that sucker up and sent it to me for repair .
  7. Then there is more work to be done, I guess.
  8. Where I live, these programs are available at public schools all year long.
  9. There are children out there who, without these programs, would go hungry on a daily basis. So do we just let them starve? Or starve until we can educate people so that this problems goes away (never)? There will always, always be hungry children out there and like it or not these kids are our future. Maybe I'm just a stupid hippie or something but it takes a village...
  10. I would think it is not the motor making that sound, but rather whatever kind of clutch setup they are using to engage/disengage the motor from the transmission. I find it sort of weird that they are saying the motor and it's "magnetics" are what is making the sound, induction motors are inherently silent as you have a core/shaft essentially floating inside a larger coil whose magnetic field induces the rotation of the inner motor shaft.
  11. I can hear my dad now, in his heavy Mediterranean accent, "ah, this is just the Greek disease". OPA!
  12. Ah OK gotcha, just misunderstood what you were saying!
  13. This will tell you nothing assuming the oven is on the 220V side of the breaker box. If 220 was "leaking" into the 120v house wiring @GlorifiedRice would most definitely know.
  14. Some almost too ripe bananas and a few pantry items led to Mary Berry's banana and honey tealoaf:
