Anova Precision Oven


FauxPas
 Share

Recommended Posts

There were a couple other threads here on the previous (stalled) release of the oven.  I was really looking forward to the Anova oven a few years ago when it was first announced, but since then, my list of desired features has grown.  I'd like a counter top appliance to be able to: toast, convection bake, microwave, steam bake, and air fry.  The air fry function is the new addition to my wish list that wasn't there a few years ago.  The searing plate feature that was listed when the oven was originally announced a few years back might come in handy.  French doors on the front of the oven would be nice too - I saw it on an oven at Costco and it seemed like a clever configuration.  I guess I'll just have to wait for another company to make my dream device, as I don't see Anova including a microwave function.  I think air frying is a very real possibility though.

With regard to the searing plate function:  in my CSO I use a half inch stainless steel plate.

I am super interested in how it would work. 

 

"No need to use a frighteningly hot pan to sear. We’re truly excited to be able to make something crispy without the omnipresent risk of a grease fire." 

 

 

 

I wonder if the steam oven can really sear the protein? Wish they could explain further 

 

And....guessing they control the wet bulb temperature of the food by controlling the temperature of the steam? Because the temp of the steam is the temp of the wet bulb temp on the food.

what do people think below $500?

 

if Anova's stated aim is to have a fully connected kitchen and this appears in January's CES, then a precise induction unit must be in the background too.

It is about time someone has done this.  Modernist Cuisine called for exactly this sort of combi oven in 2011, where you can directly set the wet and dry bulb temperature.  Even the expensive Rational combis (pro kitchens only) or the Gaggenau/Miele/Wolf residential units do not do this.

 

Mainstream consumer products, however, are limited to about 1800W by our standard U.S. outlets.  That is unless Anova is planning on requiring a 240V outlet, as many residential wall ovens require.

 

Per adey73's suggestion, I do hope Anova will have an induction burner at a reasonable price.  The Breville/Polyscience Control Freak is just stupid expensive.

The Paragon is an extraordinary price. 

 

Anyone think this steam oven is going to have an internal probe attachment, like commercial units do?

Had picked up a rumor on FB that Anova would debut its precision oven at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, so I went looking. Did not find the oven (the show just opened this morning), but the Impossible Foods people are now bringing us Impossible Pork.

 

Article says it'll be at selected Burger Kings in the next few weeks as Impossible Sausage in the Croissanwich. I'll check around here. The rest of y'all, keep an eye out and take a hit for the team, OK?

 

Will be following CES looking for the Anova oven.

It looks big enough to be practical for more users than the CSO is/was.

does anyone know the L capacity of the CSO ?

 

im hoping that the Anova is :

 

1 ) attractively priced , and well made.     Im willing to wait for JB to discount it

 

2 )  larger , yes , but not so much width and depth , fine quality that they are , but height  for bread baking.
