    If a recipe calls for a certain quantity, eg. 2 pork chops and you want to cook 6. Or conversely, recipe calls for a certain quantity but you want to reduce it, should you adjust time? Thanks,

    How to change temperature readings between Celsius and Fahrenheit?
    Why there is no lead to make heating more efficient?
    Where one can get manual for this product with actual content?

    Where is the "Complete User Manual" that one could view by visiting support.anovaculinary.com? It simply repeats the quick guide. Totally unhelpful.

    No mention of water... how high do you fill it.....This is a really pathetic guide. Its a copy of what came with the product, yet the guide advises you get a full complete user manual by going to support.anovaculinary.com. So where is it ?

    Since there is no usable user guide this product is useless right out of the box. I wanted to cook sous vide not take on a research project.

    Hey Come on I”m 84 yrs old and can do quite a bit on I phone and I pad. Sometimes PC gives me grief. But this device is very hard for me to understand. I don’t get this “easy” bit. Try to think like a teacher and figure out what so many of us are missing. The manual writers haven’t a clue,

    Useless manual! The online manual is no different than the printed one included with the device. I am about ready to donate this cooking tool to someone who has the time and patience to play with it. It's back to the good old bbq for me!!

    SETTING THE TIMER
    Hold down the play button for 8 seconds. During that time the display will change from C to F (or vice versa) after 3 seconds (keep holding!) and the timer button will light up after another 5 seconds.
    Hold the timer button down for 3 seconds.
    Use the scroll wheel to set the time (in 5 minute increments).
    Press the timer button again to begin the countdown.
    Hold the play button for 3 seconds to get it to switch back to C (or F, if that's where you began) and release
    Press the play button once more to start your cook.
    The display will alternate between your set temperature and the timer.

    That is the most ridiculous interface I've ever heard of. You have to change the units from C to F (or vice versa) in order to be able to set the timer manually!!! And then of course you have to set it back. Who in their right mind thought that was a good idea? Obviously nobody who has ever tried to set the timer! And one important piece of information that is missing - the unit must be STOPPED before you press and hold the play button. If it is already running, this procedure does nothing except change the units.
