Here are the voice prompts you can do with your Anova Oven and the Anova Oven Skill.

Say "Alexa, " followed by:

Food Probe / Cook to Core

  • Sous Vide my chicken to 145 degrees in my oven.
  • Bake my pork to 165 degrees in my oven.

Cook with a Timer

  • Sous Vide my fish in my oven at 125 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Bake my cookies in my oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Questions You Can Ask

  • What is my oven’s temperature? (Oven must be cooking)
  • What is the temperature of the food in my oven? (Needs the food probe inserted)

Notes

  • The responses Alexa gives are controlled by Amazon. We can’t edit or change these.
  • If you try cooking with the door open, the skill detects this, and prevents you from starting the cook until the door is closed.
  • If you try cooking to core with a food probe, but the probe isn’t connected, the skill will ask you to connect the probe.
  • For these last two notes above please note: There is a current PVT Firmware bug that prevents quick detection of the door closing/opening or probe being inserted/removed. This is known with a fix being worked. Currently it can take up to 5 minutes to detect these event. Or, if you open the app and then try the command again, this forces the oven to update state.

Can you ask it to bake @ 350 and then add 50% steam?

Can I ask “Air fry my vegetables at 425 degrees in my oven”?

You can!

How do I add this skill to Alexa?

I thought it would be as easy as Alexa app>more>skills, search for ‘Anova’, add skill. But I don’t see an Anova skill in my results. U.K.-based so unsure if the Anova skill is regionally available.

There is a ‘home connect oven’ skill but it seems more general.

UK -based here too
