Ok, tried Anova for the first time tonight. First thing I thought: this is the worst enemy of the environment, and probably of your wallet too.
Option 1 - traditional method
Stove of 2000W, 8 min cooking, 22.5 cent/kWh (MA average rate) => 266 Wh used, cost 6 cent, water used (to cook) = 0 liter
Option 2 - Anova
800W, full power for the first hour and then 20% fo the time to maintain heat for 23h (beef shortribs) => 4,480 Wh used, cost 1$, that’s x17 more than traditional cooking!!
On top of that, I’ve used 11 liter of water. Just to put in perspective, in Haiti, one person use 17 liter per day.
It’s time to wake up - our resources are not infinite, nor is our wallet.
Did I get something wrong?
What do you think?
Am I the only one to worry about money and the planet?
