Review from Shawn Sherwood
Works great! It's super easy to use.
January 26, 2016Thanks Shawn!
Anova has changed the way I cook. The tenderest pork chops I have ever had and the juiciest chicken. All thanks to Anove. Simply follow the recipe on the app drop your food into a Ziploc bag and let the Anova cooker do the rest. Not only are the recipes but the cooking time is all part of the app so you do not even have to set a timer.
This app is awful. It randomly won't set temperatures for no reason. Incidentally why are a load of reviews discussing the cooker itself? The cooker is great, the app is not. Edit: over a year later and the app is still rubbish. Constant disconnect notifications. Inaccurate alarms that my food is ready, despite there being hours left. Down to 1 stat now. Awful
Pretty good app, it's cool that it has recipes and a guide easily accessible. The only problem is that for some reason when the Bluetooth gets disconnected, the units turn back to Celsius. So when I was cooking, and came back from work, it reconnected and started to lower my temperature. Thank god I noticed right away.
Beware! *DO NOT USE THIS APP* this app is absolute garbage. It has rendered my new anova cooker useless. Once you connect, it will randomly disconnect, resetting your timer in the process. If you close the app, the cooker looks for it and constantly shuts down. My cooker will be going back unless this is corrected in the very near future.
Lost bluetooth connect while cooking. Has no idea how long my steaks have been in the bath. Now i have to guess which defies the purpose of have a sous vide to begin with. Don't even download this app. The recipes included are basic and the app doesn't work work. EDIT: Anova replied to my review and asked me to write an email to their support team. Their reply to my email was a yes/no question as to my satisfaction with the support. I did'nt get a reply back..
The tool itself is awesome. Outstanding outcomes. The software however needs a bit of work. While I have benefit of controlling anova remotely and start cooking before leaving home the timer function gets rarely setup right and gets reset after heating up. Support so far gives dumb responses instead of being curious how to help improve product. Hope it will get better soon.
