Anova’s new Precision Cooker Pro is the most strapped consumer sous vide circulator on the market. Its durability and toughness measurables are angled toward the professional kitchen, but it could find another home in the kit of the serious tailgater.
Most sous vide circulators for home cooks are capable of controlling the temperature of roughly 15 to 25 liters of water. The Precision Pro can handle 100, or enough to fill pretty much any Yeti cooler you’d realistically buy with water to pre-cook steaks and pork chops before a quick sear on the grill. And because it was designed to live in commercial kitchens, the brand says it can run for 10,000 consecutive hours without issue — more than enough time to prep a pork shoulder for the flames.
