Anova Precision Cooker Sous Vide

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).

Shares your information with 3rd parties for unexpected reasons
Yes
Nearly every company collects some kind of information on its users. That’s how the internet works. It’s how they use and care for this information that matters. You should know whether a company shares or sells your personal information to others and for what reasons. For the purpose of this report Mozilla determined that if according to a company’s privacy policy, it appeared to share data with third parties that could then use that information to market or advertise to customers, then we labeled it as “Shares information with third parties for unexpected reasons.” This does not mean your information is definitely used for these purposes. Simply that the policy leaves the possibility open your information could be used in this way.
