Can the cooking bag "touch" the Anova tube

I am using my Anova for the first time. I am trying a pot roast. I finally settled on an insulated drink cooler, 2 gallons in size. It is nice and deep, but it is also fairly small in diameter, so right now the bag is touching the tube. Is this a no-no?

Excited to begin new cooking adventures!


as long as its not really blocking it, it should be ok, however i would definitely recommend using a larger vessel.

the tube could conceivably be hotter than the water, though it seems very unlikely.

Yea! As long is it doesn’t impede the circulation you should be fine.
