It’s fun to experiment with new cooking methods, especially if you have “cooking at home more” on your New Year’s resolution list. Now you can get a unique kitchen gadget for less that may lead you to try new recipes. Anova’s Precision Cooker sous vide is down to $119 at Best Buy, which is $80 off its normal price. If you sign up for a free My Best Buy account, you’ll get an additional $10 off, bringing the Precision Cooker down to its all-time low price of $109.
Sous vide first-timers don’t need to fear because the Precision Cooker is pretty easy to operate and Anova has a bunch of helpful tips and recipes on its website. The device attaches to your own pot and you then set your cooking preferences either with the on-device controls or via WiFi through the companion mobile app. This midrange model has 1,000W of power and will run for up to 5,000 hours, making it a good size for home chefs who also like to entertain on occasion. The device itself is water- and steam-resistant, partially dishwasher-safe thanks to some detachable components and small enough to store in a kitchen drawer easily.
The standard Precision Cooker dropped to $150 last summer and it’s been over one year since we’ve seen it drop to this low of a price. This one-day deal also makes it even more affordable than the $129 Anova Precision Cooker Nano, which is a 750W machine and connects via Bluetooth rather than WiFi.
