To add to the list above:

-An audible alert to tell you it reached desired temp

Ability to take add own notes under each cut/protein/veg. That is a very useful function in SV apps I have used.

 

@Rotuts: I have got the hacker special, as mentioned. I hope that we'll be able to best test the Anova app too.

Mine is sitting in Mississauga and will be delivered on Tuesday.

Yikes! So where is mine?

I'm not sure that expecting non-competition is unreasonable.

 

It's like Microsoft saying you can only create a program for Windows, but not OSX. Or for example, Apple saying you can create an app just for iOS but not Android.

These T&C pretty much rule out having Sous Vide Dash app for the Anova. Unless I'm mistaken?

According to a post from a commenter on their Kickstarter page, the T&C reads, in part:

 

2.2 Limitations and Non-Competition: You may not access the Developer Tools if you also develop applications for use with products that directly compete with Anova Products; namely, any application for use with a product using immersion circulation or water bath, or any product designed to cook food at a low temperature for a defined time. If you develop any application for a competing product, your license to use the Developer Tools or any of them is immediately revoked.

 

That seems to pretty clearly ban anyone from developing for multiple sous vide platforms. I'm glad the physical controls look to be useable and that apps were a distant second concern of mine, since this will almost certainly prevent the more capable developers from working with this device. We'll be left with apps from your random dabblers who only have this, and no other, sous vide solution.

who cares.  apps dont cook.  any of them

 

do some cooking.

 

Well that's pretty rude!  The advantages of having app running immersion circulators is that it makes life a bit easier. The apps are a tool, you can use it, or, in your case, choose not to.

Not all of us have the temp/time/thickness charts memorized ;)

That is correct. Unless Anova is willing to amend the terms appropriately, Sous Vide Dash will not be able to use their API. We are currently having a conversation with them about this.

A Big WoW AnnaN

 

like unpacking a new Apple Comp.

 

It seems the AnovaTeam took a page from the Apple 'Packers'

 

good for them

 

BTW  how do you think your'e  'Early Bird' might differ from the later versions ?

 

like to hear what you think about this one !

I"m confused... that looks almost exactly like the packaging of my Anova One, but with a slightly different cutout in the foam.

It probably is. Why would this be confusing? When I can dig up a little bit more energy I will go downstairs and get the packaging for the ANOVA one and compare.

      Has anybody tried making a dark roux in a pressure cooker? Can this be done without scortching do you think? I have made roux in the oven before and started wondering about this topic.

      I really want to improve the flavor of my chicken breast so I want to try to inject brine with fat and flavors.
       
      I would like to try brining with some hydrocolloids. The one example I found is this: https://torontofoodlab.com/2013/08/20/meat-tenderizing-with-a-carrageenan-brine/.
       
      However I cannot apply that to my chicken breast because I am cooking it sous vide, so the chicken will not reach the temperature needed for the carrageenan to gel.
       
      I am thinking of using Methyl cellulose, first disperse in hot water, then leave it for 24 hours in the fridge, then add salt, fat and flavors and inject it.
      I am afraid that until it reaches the 50C or 60C that the Methyl cellulose needs in order to gel, the liquid will escape.
      Any ideas?
      Thanks.

      Thanks for putting up this forum 🙂
      I would like to bake using a combination of sous vide and a conventional oven. Would it be possible to put the dough in a vacuum bag cook it sous vide at 37C for the dough to raise optimal and then put it in a conventional oven?
      Thanks

      Olla podrida sous vide
      Origin
      Not rotten pot, but mighty or rich pot! Originated in 16th century Spain, olla poderida became olla podrida and was falsely translated into French as pot-pourri.
      Ingredients
      For two servings
      * 100g Brisket well marbled, cooked SV 48h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Pork meat well marbled, cooked SV 24h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Lamb chops without bone, cooked SV 4h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Chicken breast, cooked SV 2h/58°C, large dice †
      * 100g Chorizo, sliced approximately 4mm †
      * 125g Chickpeas (garbanzos), soaked overnight in water †
      * 1 Onion chopped medium-fine †
      * ½ Savoy cabbage approx. 200g cut into pieces, thick leaf veins removed
      * ½ Celeriac approx. 200g quartered, sliced about 2mm
      * 2 Carrots sliced approximately 120g about 3mm
      * 1 Leek approximately 20cm / 100g sliced about 5mm
      * Extra virgin olive oil
      * Rice bran oil
      * Dried parsley qs, aromatic, black pepper
      † Beef, pork, lamb and chicken (or at least two kinds of meat) as well as chorizo, chickpeas and onions are mandatory ingredients, other vegetables vary according to desire and availability.
      Cooking
      Boil chickpeas in water for 30-60 min.
      Sauté onions in olive oil, add chorizo, continue sautéing, add chickpeas including its cooking water, add remaining vegetables, cover and cook to the desired softness, stir from time to time. If additional liquid is needed, you may add Sherry instead of water.
      Reduce heat. Season to taste. Add parsley.
      In a heavy skillet, sear the meat dice in just smoking hot rice bran oil (very high smoking point allows very quick sear, not overdoing the center of the meat).
      Sear one kind of meat at a time and transfer to the pan with the vegetables.

      Warm Onion Bavarois
      * 300g Sweet Onion purée
      * 250g Whole milk
      * 150g Whipping cream
      * 150g Chicken stock (or fresh vegetable nage, not stock cubes)
      * 3.5g Gellan gum
      * Seasoning
      Lightly grease with vegetable oil the moulds you intend to use (darioles, ramekins etc) and set to one side.
      In a pan (but not on the heat), whisk together all the ingredients.
      Place on a medium heat and whisk continuously, the mix will start to thicken slightly. Carry on whisking for a further 3-4 minutes when it has started to bubble. Then quickly pour into the greased moulds & chill.
      To reheat for serving, just place the ramekin in a pan of water and simmer gently for 8-10 mins.
