Just add water

Sous vide is a cooking technique that involves suspending vacuum-sealed ingredients within a water bath that's held to a very steady, very consistent temperature. That's what Anova does -- stick it down into your pot, and it'll heat the water right to where you want it and hold it there for as long as you need.

New and improved clamp

You'll clamp the Anova cooker onto the side of your pot by tightening a screw. A new, second screw lets you loosen the device itself, then raise, lower, or turn it. That gives you a little more cooking flexibility.

Breakfast of champions

I like mine poached to a nice, slightly runny medium. 15 minutes at 165 degrees F (74 C) does the trick. With sous vide, it's easy to dial in to the exact settings you like.

On to dinner

Next up was steak -- flank steak, specifically. The flavor is typically on point, but it's a notoriously tough cut of meat. Our hope was that an extra-long sous vide cook would help soften it up a little.

Perfectly cooked

Nailed it! 24 hours at 131 degrees F (55 C), and our steak came out juicy and tender, with edge-to-edge consistency.

A quick sear in a hot pan

Of course, you'll want that carmelized crispness on the outside, so a very quick sear in a very hot pan is a very good idea.
