I put a loaf of sourdough in there right after it came out of the (Anova precision) oven. Impossibly crackly skin with amazing soft interior.

Trip report on the precision oven? I want one

Yeah I am really tempted by that thing too but don't understand the benefits over traditional puddling + an oven.

You put the bread in the chamber vac?

First: steam. Keep things (fish, proofing or baking bread, etc) perfectly moist while cooking them, and then switch to the broiler to crisp without having to break the salmon into pieces getting it out of the bag. Also, just throwing vegetables on a tray at 220F/100% steam for 10ish minutes, no messing with steamer baskets or a pot.

Heats up faster than a full-sized oven and holds temp quite precisely. I think it generates and exhausts steam to “spend” heat if it goes over temp, even.

Mine is very much a one-dot-oh product and really doesn’t connect to the app, but with that and the water tank cracking fixed it’s a great appliance. We hardly use our main (Thermador) oven at all, and lament its slow heating and inaccuracy when we do.

We cross-shopped against various convection toaster ovens of roughly the same size, and I’m glad that we went with this one, even with its rough edges.

If one is in the market for a convection toaster oven, do you think it's worth the extra cost to step up to the Anova? I love the idea of getting rid of the waste associated with traditional sous vide and the worry over my lovely vac sealer. Giving away/selling the small air fryer, the sous vide stick + accessories, and paring down to just one device sounds appealing.

I wish they were for sale via Amazon, as I've got a bunch of points + gift certs to cash in on, tho

It’s awesome. Get it. I’ve used my “real” oven once since getting the APO

Yes. Straight from the oven.

This is a good post

Get the APO. Get rid of the “air fryer” since the APO does that. Keep the sous vide and vacuum sealer, since I have had two puddles and the APO going all at once.
