My latest purchase is an Anova Sous Vide precision cooker. Interesting concept and works well. Season and seal meat, and then cook in water to specific temp for a specific amount of time. Very precise edge to edge cooked meat, that is then seared prior to serving. I have documented several recent completed cooks on the main page using this device. In several instances, I am using the Sous Vide, then smoking and searing.
