GeneralMy new Sous Vide has arrived! Pin

At long last - don't know what the problem was, but their website still says the order is "processing" and "hasn't shipped yet". Fortunately their support is good, if a bit slow since it works on California time, not UK.

My word this is a big lump! Herself as started referring to it as "my kitchen sex toy", but you'd have to be .... umm ... rather brave for that.
So big in fact, that I've already had to move to Plan B: Plan A was to repurpose the old, dead Sous Vide Supreme as the water chamber (since it's already insulated and got a lid I can make a hole in) but it takes so much space that just won't fly. Plan B is to multi-use the deep frier, since it holds 8L of oil it'll hold plenty of food without crowding. I'll have to get a new lid and insulate the body but that shouldn't be a problem, I think a Gastronorm 1/2 lid should fit pretty well.

Connecting it to WiFi wasn't without problems - you have to create an account at the Anova end, and the developers lowercase your email for storage and then compare your entry against that without lowercasing your input. So enter your email as "Paul.Griffin@..." to set up the account and again to log in and it can't find it... Sigh | :sigh:
It's also damn slow at sending out the account verification email - it took about 40 minutes to arrive which is a little silly.

Still it's connected, and sending notices to my phone that it's preheating. Don't see how to control if from a PC, which would be an irritant, but it seems to heat prety quickly - less than twenty minutes to 60C from 19C ambient. The temp reading doesn't seem quite as accurate as the old unit which agreed with my infrared thermometer, but I can adjust for that if I have to.

Only trouble is I don't have anything to cook in it for tonight as I didn't know it would be here Laugh | :laugh:
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
