We all heard about Web 2.0, Social Media 2.0, Fitness 2.0 and so on…! Just about anything that gets the cool touch of technology can be deemed 2.0!

The Anova Sous Vide Immersion Circulator is the technology boost that will bring your old cooking pot into the modern world! Here’s how it works (note how simple it is!!!): 1) Attach the Immersion Circulator to your cooking pot and set the cooking time and temperature; 2) Put the food (meat, vegetables, even fruits) in a ziplock bag and immerse it in the cooking pot filled with water.

That’s it! It’s as simple as it can get. Of course, once your food is cooked, you can sear it, grill it or broil it for a few minutes if you want to give it a personal touch. You can, but you don’t have to!
