There are some dishes that just have this uncanny ability to put our bodies and minds at ease. They speak sweet nothings to the soul, give it a little pat on the head, and leave us feeling, well – completely comforted.

Here at Anova, we LOVE food – but we don’t love wasting it.

This month, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, Anova is teaming up with Imperfect Foods to raise awareness around food waste. Since 2015, Imperfect Foods has disrupted the food system by saving produce deemed “cosmetically imperfect” and delivering them to customers’ doors at a discounted rate.

Introducing Anova’s Refurbishment Program

This year, Anova introduced a refurbishment program in the US and Canada to extend the life cycle of our cookers, keeping them out of landfills and providing our customers with longer lasting, more sustainable devices.

Through our partner, CoreCentric Solutions, every Anova refurbished product completes a robust process that includes full testing. All parts are guaranteed to meet or exceed the quality of the original device and will be safely mailed to you in a 100% recyclable cardboard box and plastic insert.

9 Ambitious Recipes to Get Lost in This Week

A lot of us are finding ourselves at home more and ready to distance yourself from the seemingly never ending slew of less than great news. We know our #anovafoodnerd family loves to dive head first into some lengthy, labor-intensive meals, and that’s exactly what we’re serving up.

As we mentioned last week, everyone’s pantry and fridge look different right now, and you may not have all ingredients for all these dishes. Play, have fun, sub as needed, and omit as necessary. This guide serves as inspiration, not a letter by letter recipe! Away we go.
