Anova Precision Oven: Features, Accessories, Troubleshooting, and "Should I Buy One?"


FauxPas
 Share

Recommended Posts

@rotuts, rest easy. So far, I have only used the app for toast (and we did break down and buy a toaster, so not very often).

We've had the machine for about 11 months and used it hundreds of times.

It's used manually because I wanted to learn what it was doing, not just follow along some other idi*t's idea.

Since it's connected to our WiFi, sometimes it updates (once in the middle of a critical cook! ūüė° )

OK

 

another question :

 

lets say the APO , connected to WiFi

 

gets its firmware updated.  

 

and an App appears on an iPhone

 

basically to turn on the light ?

 

does the APO have to remain w WiFi

 

to get the light to turn on ?

 

of can an iPhone , w app connect to the APO

 

after the WiFi is replaced in its box , and unplugged ?

 

I might be investing in a nice flash light ....

 

some day.

Indeed it is but there is at least one workaround.

 

If you want OFF, there is no such thing. But program a next next step for many hours at 25c. Warm room temp.

 

Anova seems to think there could be major liability problems with allowing 'clients' to shut the thing off. This is insensible, unreasonable, illogical and utter BS.

 

Lawyers?

 

Anyway, you'll love it.

 

 

 

Odd. My Breville turns off after a cook.

Same company, no?

@rotuts

 

seems like the oven light is on by default. comes on as soon as the oven starts heating up.

as far as the light is concerned, you basically only need your phone if you want to turn it off while the oven's on.

 

the light is off when the oven is off/idle.

Anova's parent company is Electrolux.  I do not believe they own Breville.

Just got an email from AnovaCulinary.com

Looks like Andrew Rea from "Binging with Babbish"/"Babish Culinary University" is collaborating with Anova to show off their Precision Oven.

I wonder what will come of it...

Hopefully new a fun, creative, and simple recipe on youtube.

Ideally, this means more food nerds are exposed to the wonders of a home combi-oven. Which means new people getting into it, doing experiments and therefore hopefully publishing new recipes! I would love the combi-oven recipe list to grow!

I just received my APO last week and have been slowly reshuffling my kitchen to make space for its debut to precious counter space. Edited by Jon S

a  question for Firmware'd up APO users:

 

lets say , you firm up the shipped APO

 

will the APO work , more or less

 

W/O WiFi  constantly on ?

 

a la CSO ?

 

my current plan is this :

 

My library is near by.

 

it has WiFi , electrical outlets , and 

 

carts  ie they would lend me one for a few minutes.

 

might have to ' check it out '  Ha Ha

 

a friend of mine , and myself

 

take the APO to the library , use their cart

 

( not the book-carts )

 

wheel it in to a computer table

 

etc etc

 

wheel it back to the car.

 

now , do I have a CSO ( manual , thank you )

 

that's a bit bigger ?  using only the buttons on the

 

APO ?

 

the experiment would probably require you to

 

turn off your WiFI for a few minutes 

 

and see.

 

getting your WiFi working again as before

 

is up t you.

 

Id appreciate hearing about y0ur results .

I did get a very prompt answer :

 

"""   Thanks for reaching out.

If the Oven is working perfectly with its current firmware version, then you may leave it as is. Just kindly ensure it's not connected to your WiFi, so it won't automatically update when a newer firmware version is released.

I hope this helps!

I did reference Catch - 22 

 

just in case

 

Im hopefully , as they ship out the APO

 

it comes w the latest

 

then again , w shipping delays ...

Rather may I suggest borrowing a wifi hotspot from the library.  Update anova firmware.  Return hotspot to the library.

 

Or if you have a cellular device it may function as a wifi hotspot.  I believe my iPad will.  In any event I'm sure MC would appreciate another hotspot.

well ,

 

MC and his HotSpot !

 

if they upgraded the WiFi to current 

 

Im fine

 

although, my many Pals @ MyLocal 

 

would be seriously amused 

 

that I up-date an Oven

 

at The Local.

 

BTW :

 

some time ago , not that long ago 

 

but in the Era Before 

 

Anova undated their circulators to both have

 

WiFi and BlueTooth 

 

OK 

 

I have that model , and did indeed 

 

D/L the App for my iPod 

 

remember those ?

 

there was a fine discussion her re :

 

Chips :  not Potato or Kale

 

re : the econo0mics of Chisp

 

Bluetooth and possibly WiFi chis

 

were as I remember 

 

were quite cheap.

 

Ive noted the APO , and the BoraBora team 

 

chose not to include a bluetooth chip

 

with the WiFi chip

 

interesting , very interesting 

 

Yawn 

 

but think about it :

 

They Want To Hear From You 

 

more or less continently 

 

DataMining ?

 

I don't even know what that means

 

but the option to earn a billions of a cent

 

real co0pper cents

 

must have made the AnovaMasters

 

salivate
