I just tried pasta this most recent time (lasagna noodles).
No, I didn’t put it in a water filled bag. I just put it in the container.
I don’t think any of the pasta got in the machine’s base, because my pasta was intact at the end.
I had been having a problem with the pasta breaking when I tried them on the gas range in a pot, so I wanted to try the pasta in my tall plastic food safe container, where it would fit more comfortably.
Ok, so you think the water vapor is getting into the controls. So when the water is heating next time, I’ll cover my container. Since that’s when I seem to have it stop heating the most often, during the heating process.
If I still experience this, should I then contact Anova? Since I think I’ve experienced the heating stopping all 3 - 4 times I’ve used it (when preparing those different meals).
One more question.
Is it ok to put the machine directly in my container, and not use the screw to latch it onto the container? If I latch it onto the container, then I have to fill my container almost all the way up, for it to get past the minimum line. And then the water would drop below due to the evaporation, and then the machine would say the level was too low.
After I saw that, I started putting it directly in the container. It did move around a little while heating, but this seemed much better. The cord is still away from the water. And once it was heated and I put my food bag in there, then the machine didn’t move around in the container as much. Overall, this seemed better for me the last few times, for the container that I use. The only issue I then seemed to have, is what I described earlier, with it stopping heating (but not because the water level was too low this time).
