If you are “wary” (a little is good) then I recommend you simply play around with sous vide eggs to have on toast & pre-determine from several versions & timings out there what difference a few degree’s / 15 mins - 45 mins + holding time all make.
(use serious eats site to have a look at slight variables on yolk cook types, however for a no faff, zero presentation egg on toast I recommend Emily & Jeff Farris 45 min cook 63.3C / 146F (decent cornish sea salt flakes or cholula fruity sauce to accompany) to get your head round things there is the “favourite” option & the frequently cooked" options on your phone app profile, if you find an item of interest it will ask you (somewhere) “cook this recipe”? …& ping to your Anova the setting & time pertaining to that “recipe”.
Give it a try, set a Siri / Alexa / “whatever” timer & play…
Remember that Costco sells in bulk (uk at least) bacofoil brand Sous vide suitable bags, which works out cheaply & are multimodal kitchen kit if you don’t have time to vacuum seal) the 3 litre bags work out at about 13 pence each.
Eggs in the shell do not need a bag obviously
& remember a block of butter if finishing off in a hot pan for the steaks you are itching for,
(incidentally the other week we cooked off venison steak, buffalo & regular rib eye (uk version) all in the water from the freezer at the same time, same temperature we like ours rare to vaguely medium) all fared well, so whilst technical is good, once you trust your anova, experiment a little further to understand squeezed for time along with safe & edible.
(a 7 minute temp raising circulatory dip is enough to unfreeze most regular steaks, burgers etc, stand around, crack that heat saving thermal lid on your pot for temperature recovery best practise & get your head round it all quicker. (took 20 hours with a simple silicone lid on my instantpot to come down to 19C / 63.2F room temperature from cooking yesterday at 59.7C / 139.46F (as I was in a hurry I didn’t use any insulation, just the lid, & didn’t have to concern myself with water loss nor water vapour condensate in the kitchen.
I only wish I could get hold of more Ostrich hearts, they are delicious “steak”
I heartily recommend your first chicken breasts @ 60c /140F for 2 hours, (as per the app guide for meat types for either a salad wrap or simple no faff chicken salad) …eye opener to say the least (again pan finish the breast)
Think “trainer wheels” & don’t trust the app 100% there are a few jerks out there putting out spurious time uploads (usually denoted with obvious garbage)
Enjoy, (however far you take it), it’s all good.
