ANOVA PRECISION COOKER
Sous-vide cooking — sealing food in a plastic bag and cooking it in hot water — means you can slow-cook for hours with precise results. The Precision Cooker from Anova takes the idea and brings it into the 21st century. You can control the WiFi-enabled device from anywhere using a companion app, plus it clips onto the side of any pan before easily packing away for storage. Pop a meal into the cooker before work and program the device to have dinner ready when you walk through the door. $129.
