Tender, flavorful pork. Or chicken. Or anything else you can stuff into a ziplock bag and gently simmer in hot water. That's the aim (and poor explanation) of sous vide -- a cooking technique where digital machines can help to ensure temperature consistency, and often throw in some WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity for added fun. This week at CES, established player Anavo is showing off three new Precision Cooker models: a $99 entry-level device with Bluetooth; a mid-range model with WiFi that replaces its main cooker; and a professional-grade cooker with a touchpanel and what the team says is a "far more intuitive interface."

The pro model will be able to store your recipes so you can move your cooking away from your smartphone. (It also has WiFi connectivity to wirelessly start things up when away from home.) Additionally, the company is showing off its Precision Oven here at the show. Revealed a few months ago in 2016, the company pitches it as the evolution of the oven and the microwave. Besides, the promise of even temperatures throughout, the device can also steam cook and even sear meats to keep the moisture inside. There's no price yet, but it'll land toward the end of this year.

Although I didn't get to sample any melt-in-your-mouth delicacies on the show floor at CES, the company does have a prior form: Its Anova Precision Cooker is one of the best ones out there. With a cheaper option as well as a pro-level model for sous vide maniacs, now might be the time to start mastering a new cooking technique. The entry-level $99 cooker launches this spring.
