I'm a chronic over-cooker. I know this about myself and still I find that at least a few times a year I over cook to the point of being inedible because I get distracted with kids and life and leave food in too long. My husband is a chronic under-cooker. Which is understandable because he doesn't want to risk burning our food like I do. Add in the fact that our stove and oven have temperature maintaining problems and it's really quite amazing any of our food turns out. But, Anova is here to fix our food issues once and for all with their Precision Cooker that introduced sous vide to our life. So now we can get perfect cooking results every single time with a totally new cooking technique that takes all of the guesswork out of cooking. Sous vide gives you restaurant quality results that are impossible to achieve through any other cooking method where food is cooked evenly edge to edge, with no worry of overcooking.
This may not seem like a huge deal to you, but to me this is a game changer. Since I'm typically still working around the dinnertime hour, having something I can cook with that is mostly hands-off and that I can control while I'm working away at the kitchen table is the coolest thing ever. It allows me to focus on work while still whipping up an amazing meal that is cooked to perfection every single time without fail. If you are at all interested in trying sous vide cooking, Anova is the way to go. You can order one from the Anova Culinary site and get $50 off plus shipping before Christmas or you can pick one up from Amazon.
