Sure, some suggestions:

You should mention that wifi works only on the 2.4 GHz band, only if the password does not contain special characters, and only with certain router models.

For bluetooth, you should mention that loss of the connection from the app is frequent and can be fixed by re-starting the app only some of the time.

You should mention that, for cooks above around 75 ºC, it is necessary to have a container with a lid, otherwise the steam that rises from the water confuses the Anova’s electronics.

Please also mention that, after setting the time, it is necessary to then again hold the button for three more seconds to switch back to Celsius, otherwise the temperature scale will remain on Fahrenheit, potentially causing the wrong temperature to be entered next time.

Additional FAQs:

Q: “How do I stop the beeps once the timer goes off?”

A: “You need to walk up to the device and press the play button or unplug the unit. You cannot turn off the beeps from the app.”

Q: “How do I extend the cooking time once the timer has ended?”

A: “You cannot do that from the app. To do it at the device itself, you need to press the play button to stop the beeps, and then enter a new cook with the extra time you want, either on the device itself or via the app.”

Q: “How do I stop the continuous beep after the Anova detects that the water level has dropped too low?”

A: “You cannot stop the beep by adding more water. Instead, stop the Anova, add more water, and then enter a new cooking time that subtracts the amount of time that the food had been cooking before the low water condition was detected.”
