Ah. After reading a few other threads I see that the general idea is to not use the timer. very sad issue that seems to need addressing for a gadget that is being sold as BT-Wifi based for a feature.
Apart from the other horrid behaviour of my BT-based Anova software, my gripe at every cook is that I am told that I have to start the timer after the bath has reached temperature. Is there any way around this?
If I am doing an all day cook while I am not there, I could be forced to wait maybe 30-40 minutes for the bath to warm, then set the timer, and that hardly works in a time-poor society. I have another make of "agitator" and it just gets up to temp then starts timing, which I feel is what should happen.
I discovered this problem when I came to check the cook and the machine, with food in the bath, was holding temperature, but with no timer showing. Luckily I had a fair idea of how much time was left and could restart the cook with the remaining time set.
That is wrong.
Any help appreciated.
