@CanadianHomeChef For what it's worth, in modernist cuisine, they stated that the temperatures inside the rational combi ovens weren't very accurate below ~140 F. So I'm not sure how accurate this oven would be compared to the rational ones. 

 

Okay. So, I just want to confirm whether or not this applies to the APO:

 

"This is why we hesitate to recommend combi ovens for cooking fish, rare meat, or other foods where you might need temperature accuracy"

[Modernist Cuisine (Vol. 2, Pg 156)]

 

@PositiveMD's quote is the only thing I've found on eGullet for using the APO at temperatures 140 F / 60 C or below.

 

I'm curious, what is the accuracy of this statement for APO veterans?

 

 

P.S.

I am considering returning my unused Anova Precision Cooker Pro (immersion circulator) to subsidize the cost of the APO. This was just purchased because of a sale but if the Sous Vide mode of the APO is not a concern at low temperatures, then I can't see why I'd have both. Can you?

 

P.P.S. I have been ignored the three times I've reached out to Anova for response to this main question. The first time (2 months ago), they said I'd be contacted by a technician. And ghosted me even after 4hrs of leaving a chat window open. They have been horrible with Customer Service so far, hopefully that's just been my luck though and isn't the norm.

I haven't found much on this on eGullet.
