Anova Precision Cooker Sous Vide

Anova Precision Cooker Sous Vide

Review date: 11/01/2018

Eating out is expensive. Cooking good food takes time. In this day and age, who has time and money? If you like to eat good food but hate getting out of your pajamas to leave the house--or the couch--to cook, the little gadget is for you. Pop some food in a plastic bag, put it in a pot of water, plop this sous vide machine in the pot and you're good to go. The Bluetooth version lets you cook from another room. The Bluetooth + Wi-Fi version lets you cook from another continent (which will be super handy once teleportation is invented).

What could happen if something goes wrong

Someone could hack your Wi-Fi, crank up the cooking temperature on your sous vide, and over cook your steak.
