While the app has a plethora of useful and exciting features, we've designed the Anova Precision Cooker to operate completely without the app. You can use the device to its fullest extent without connecting the app to the device.
To learn more about how to use your device without the app check out this unboxing video, which includes how to set up your cooker, set the temperature, and start your first cook.
Also, if you are interested in switching your device from C to F temps, or setting the timer, check out this video:
