Anova Precision Oven


FauxPas
 Share

Recommended Posts

I use the front panel on the oven for everything except for the Toast 101 program.

I resent that one can neither create nor share one's own cooking programs. (Probably why I'm refusing to play in the sandbox. 🤣 )

For some things I have copious hand-written notes.

You certainly can create your own multistep cooking programs.  I outlined the procedure earlier in the thread.  For sharing you could send someone the steps and they could enter them themselves.

Oh, the things that I have finally “bit on” because of eGullet… but really, I have never felt led astray. Yup… I finally bit.

As I await my new toy, I am pondering the placement of the beast. Do those of you who have it already have insight as to the advisability of setting a CSO atop it? I would never use both at the same time, so power draw is not my concern, rather the issues of heating up of the top surface of the APO or the effect of the weight of the CSO.

You could always store the CSO inside.  I exaggerate only slightly.

 

I can see the advantage to using both ovens at the same time, amperage permitting -- I wish I could -- but if you have an APO, for what would you rather use the CSO?

First off -  congratulations - if you like the CSO you'll  love the APO

 

Couple of things, you might want to connect it to your wifi just to get the updates - I seldom use the app - there is a learning curve but in terms of steam usage, I just consider am I afraid of something drying out or do I want crispy and go from there - regarding appliance on appliance - it does put out a bit of heat (I use it to warm plates while whatever is cooking in the oven) so you might want to ensure some spacing

 

There are all kinds of facebook pages around, but the best and most reliable source I've found is:

From the horse's mouth so to speak :)

So I'm guessing Thanksgiving turkey is probably a stretch - Christmas for sure!

I used to do a deconstructed turkey

 

over stuffing , and conventionally baked.

 

that would be a nice item to try.

 

I have ideas where it might go

 

and im hoping some careful stacking

 

would help out.

 

That is my hope as well!

the turkey is pretty simple

 

if you like doing a bit of boning 

 

it came from Julia Child and Jacques Pepin

 

make your usual stuffing , but use turkey stock you make from

 

the carcass on the deboning day.

 

put your stuffing  ( uncooked , but just like the package

 

sugests.  put the de-bones breast on top , and the deboned 

 

 thigh , the leg is not deboned , and I added the wings

 

also not deboned , so it looks like a Turkey , doing a little 

 

dive on top of the stuffing

 

bake.     it bakes quicker than a whole turkey

 

when done , and rested ,, just slice

 

you get stuffing , white meat , and dark with a simple slice .

 

plenty of easy to get to left over to boot !

Congratulations. You'll love it.

 

Re stacking, I'd say yes within reason. The APO gets warm on top but not what I'd call dangerously hot. Just be aware it vents a good deal of moisture from the front right. You might want to avoid that plume.

 

Try it and see. I can't imagine anything disastrous.

 

Re online resources: I find the Anova community thread ho-hum. I expect you will get more out of this Reddit discussion: https://www.reddit.com/r/CombiSteamOvenCooking/

I checked that source when I first got mine and the APO references were few and far between - I just revisited it after your mention and it is also very good and I would recommend it as well - thanks

You're welcome Palo. It covers steam in general but the APO is predominant.

 

You might also like https://cookingwithsteam.com/

 

It's appliance agnostic but I'm predisposed to it because it is produced in Melbourne. The pair who do the podcast are located right next to my closest market so it feels homely to me.
