#HolidayGiftGuide - Home Chefs Will Love Anova Precision Sous Vide Appliances!

 *DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Anova for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

If you have a home chef on your gift giving list, you should definitely check out Anova Precision kitchen tools!  They specialize in sous vide appliances and things that make the whole sous vide experience a little easier.  Check out the Anova Precision Vacuum Sealer Pro:


This food sealer has a high power vacuum, reliable double sealer, built-in bag storage and cutter, an accessory port for sealing containers, and the ability to seal wet foods without worry – all with just one hand.


This vacuum sealer was built to handle over 100 continuous vacuum seals. 
Hinge your vac sealer open to see that it conveniently houses a full roll of bags and a simple sliding bag cutter. Flip the sealer over to reveal integrated cord storage hidden in the bottom of the unit. 


Having an extra hand available in the kitchen can be massively helpful. That’s why Anova designed the Anova Precision® Vacuum Sealer Pro to be fully functional, while using just one hand. Clamping bags, vacuuming, and sealing are all easily accomplished with a single hand. 


 An added accessory port and included vacuum hose opens the door to sealing much more than just bags – specialized canning jar lids, a wide variety of vacuum-ready containers, and even resealing wine bottles are all on the table.


The Anova Precision® Cooker Pro was built with a low pressure suction function and a reliable double sealer to handle even the juiciest of foods, no problem.


These bags are freezer safe up to 3 months for even longer term food storage. Vacuum sealing deprives your food of oxygen, which prevents harmful mold and bacteria from growing, which is important for long-term food storage. Which means less food waste and more dollars saved.


It’s also great for meal prep. If not cooking immediately, pre-seal your food and safely store it for later use in the fridge or freezer. Then, whenever you’re ready, transfer straight to your sous vide pot or the Anova Precision Oven and voila – a pro-level meal at your fingertips.


We sealed this tomahawk steak with herbs and spices and the cooked it with our Anova sous vide appliance.  After a final sear on a super hot grill...


Pure perfection!  I can't wait to use this food sealer for many more sous vide recipes as well as for food storage!  It's so easy to use and a gift that any home chef is sure to love!!
