Introducing the Anova Precision Oven

Anova Precision Oven

We exist to help people cook like pros. Since our launch in 2013, we’ve envisioned a future where we’ll provide our #anovafoodnerd family with a kitchen that fulfills that promise. An Anova Kitchen is one where devices are affordable, accessible, precise, and connected in a meaningful way. For the past two years, we’ve been working on a product that moves us one step closer to that vision.


Super Simple Sous Vide Cheesecake


Sous vide cheesecake is super simple with this recipe from #anovafoodnerd Chef Spizale of New Orleans. Plus, get the lowdown on his sous vide blueberry topping. Chef Spizale is a pro in the kitchen, but he doesn’t let that stop him from exploring new recipes and experimenting with sous vide. He’s created some crazy awesome recipes with his Anova, taking the complexity out of many challenging dishes and sharing the process with his fellow food nerds. Chef Spizale uses his Anova to make super simple yet amazingly delicious food, so the rest of us can literally cook like a pro. And for that, we thank him.

Super Simple Sous Vide Octopus by Frank Scholz

Cooking sous vide octopus at home might sound a bit intimidating, but with help from our #anovafoodnerd family, it can be quite simple to nail this seemingly formidable yet impressive dish. Since octopi are invertebrates, they develop super strong connective tissue throughout their muscles. Thus, cooking these tough little suckers to tenderness can be, well, tough. Consequently, you may find yourself chewing and tearing at a tentacled, rubbery result without the right method to break down that stubborn connective tissue. That’s where sous vide comes in.

Our #anovafoodnerd fam rocks. Get to know one of our favorite food nerds, Cole Wagoner.

#anovafoodnerd Cole Wagoner

Cole Wagoner is crushing it in the kitchen and has become a pretty hardcore #anovafoodnerd, sharing his crazy good sous vide food photos with the fellow food nerds on Instagram almost daily. He developed a deep appreciation and high expectations for the quality of food during his years living in Portland, a city with some serious food game. When Cole met the girl of his dreams, he followed her across the country from his beloved home state of Oregon, to a small town in Alabama. The only thing missing seemed to be the glorious abundance of grub he’d previously enjoyed, which took a bit more of a drive to find in his new neck of the woods. So began Cole’s journey for the perfect kitchen tool companion to help him recreate food experiences from the comfort of his home, while snapping epic food photos along the way.
