That's pretty unlikely. I think it gets used in a lot of kitchens without any mention. Especially before it became a cool term to refer to. When it isn't being used to cook something in a funny/molecular way, they probably don't bother referring to it on the menu.

What do you mean by stand alone controls? You don't need to use bluetooth to control the Anova Precision--it has all of the controls on it. It lacks the touchscreen interface of the One, but people have complained that the screen is annoying compared to buttons.

It has a slightly more powerful heating element, so it will come up to temp faster (doesn't matter much if you start with hot water though). The clamp design isn't as nice...the Precision has a much more refined clamp that people are saying is way better.

Duck confit using sous vide is so much easier. I'll be doing some of that next weekend.

One of the things they never tell you in the brochure is once you have a NYC apt with an extra bdrm the country mice come out of the woodwork to "visit" you in the big city. Since I have no friends they are all the leftette's gang. The last group was a family of four too large for our guest room. "Oh, that's okay - our teenage sons can crash in your living room. We'll just move your furniture aside." For a week I fed, watered and entertained them as I watched their kids step over the back of my sofas and plop onto the seats. My fault for owning low furniture, I guess. 

Two more are coming this weekend. A lovely young girl and her arrogant asshole BF who insulted me for my political views when I last entertained him in another house. I was seriously considering finding a reason to travel and leaving them to my wife, but she just informed me she has a business trip and I'll need to look after them.

New York, New York, it's a hell of a town...

I can bring some grade-school kids to test out your furniture...

Thanks very much. That's extremely helpful to know, especially about the clamp.

I also really hate the video for the Anova 1 so I will scratch that off the list.

If you've eaten in a restaurant before there is a 99% change you've eaten Sous Vide.

One thing that is true is that when you take "finished" meat out of the water bath and out of the plastic it is seriously disgusting to the point of being nauseating until you blowtorch it.

I don't eat in fancy restaurants no more.

It doesn't matter, I know several normal people restaurants on my block that use them. Most of them illegally (don't ask me how I know) because there is an extra license required to use them.

I really only eat at places with formica counters and men.

 

Have you tried sous videing your coffee? Could be the new thing.

That's not a bad idea. Put some beans in there at 206 degrees for a while and snack on them.

When I first read that I thought it said Minnis Shabu Shabu. I thought it was a new fabric offering.

Why do you let these people stay with you? Once the man insulted you for your political beliefs, or it really could have been any another beliefs for that matter, then in my rule book,  he has successfully forfeited his chance at staying in my house, riding in my car, sharing my beer, sharing my space at a dinner table or really any other sort of possible function or event where we would need to share a common space for more than a few minutes.

 

 

This is of course if he really, actually,  insulted you.
