Got one of these last year, best kitchen gadget ever. Improves the quality of everything I’ve cooked using it. Bear in mind, you’ll likely also need to invest in a vacuum bag sealer as well.

Comments above seem to split into 2 categories; people who own one and love it; and people who don’t, but know that it’s rubbish. Not come across anyone so far who has one but doesn’t love it...

It's not about speed or something you have to use every day (you might though). It's about cooking your meat, veg to absolute precision. If you like a rare steak it might be 50°c for example. Medium rare 56°c. You can adjust it be 0.5°c to get it exactly how you like it. Perfectly moist chicken breasts etc.It's hard to explain. Google it and look on YouTube. A lot of the best restaurants in the UK and world use it, so I'm guessing there's something in it.


I'm only going by the website recipes it's 6 hrs 30 mins for steak and 1 boiled egg 45 mins etc and i'm not missing the point i love to cook and i know this will produce top notch cooking but im not a food snob that needs to cook something for 2 days to say it's done to perfection so i will stick with my 3-4 min pan fried steak and 4 mins boiled egg and go to the restaurant for this stuff.

I love my slow cooker, use it more than my sous vide. But I would never attempt to cook a steak in it, like wise I wouldn't use my sous vide to make a stew.

Why not save £100.00 and cook it yourself

These are fantastic, I swear by them for cooking steak. Much better than restaurant quality. Heat thanks.
I have one of these and they are a really excellent kitchen tool. The precise temp control allows you to make some truly awesome stuff, conveniently and dare I say, perfectly.

Best steak, fish, chicken and poached eggs i've ever had. And i consider myself more than a competent cook. All the top chefs use this method. That should tell you something. Perfect food every time. You really can't go wrong with it.

Train for six months before attempting a marathon and you still have to complete 26 miles 385 yards. It's all about getting the best result.

It depends on whether you want a poached egg done well or a poached egg done to perfection. If you are content with the former, save your money.

I'm sure there are recipes that you can cook for days at a time, but typically I'll cook meat for around 1hr 15 and its perfect, even better you can cook straight from frozen in an extra hour with no loss of quality. I used to spend 15 mins to do a couple of steaks on a regular griddle and they were usually fine, occasionally raw or overdone, but usually fine. Using sous vide they've never been less than perfect, and or may take longer elapsed time but no more effort. Essentially, plan a bit more in advance and get better results. Clearly not for everyone, but for me the quality makes it very worthwhile
So I spent £2500 on a falcon cooker, only to find if I want food to be cooked perfect I needed a £100 gadget and a plastic bag?

No, you’ll also need a bag sealer, so probably budget for another £30. Although sounds like you can afford it...
waste of money get a slowcooker cheap enough.... does the same job i cook pork and beef over night in my slow cooker to perfection...... so cold from me
Does anyone know if the WiFi version will work with Samsung smartthings? I know I could always use a controllable plug, but it would be good to know if it would work with smartthings so that I had complete control. Thanks for any advice

Your 3-4 minute pan fried steak won't be anywhere near as good as my 2.5 hour steak done sous vide.

You have to try it first to understand what we mean by that. I bought mine for £40 from a deal on here a few months ago and love it.

Who says it would not taste as good as my pan fried steak you ? its subjective and i dont need to cook a steak for 2.5hrs for me to just say to everybody ohh i have a perfect steak i'm not a poncy food snob and i'm happy with the traditional method.

I would be willing to bet any amount of money, that in a blind taste test, with an independent taster, my steak would win every time.

Would you be willing to bet the same amount of money?

Bearing in mind, I have never tasted your steak, and you have never tasted mine.

I'm not looking for a massive explanation, as to whether you would or would not.

A straight yes or no will do.

Have a look in an Aldi store if you are going there anyway. They recently had their sous vide down device reduced down to £19.99. There could be some about. See old threads like hotukdeals.com/dea…917 and hotukdeals.com/dea…397 for info. Granted it is not a bluetooth sous vide.
Great device but I got mine a couple years ago for 70 new sealed on eBay think it was from Anova from memory so worth checking.... I would pay the extra 10 for wifi but then again mine is Bluetooth .. didn't have WiFi when I got mine but would seem good to pre heat before getting home

I Don't think you remotely understand what sous vide is, is cooking to the temperature that it can't be overdone and is still juicy and rare (if that's how you like it) not cooking it so long that it no long holds itself together...

Worth noting I have a pressure cooker (slow cooker) and it's job is very different to sous
Can anyone recommend a decent bag and vacuum setup to accompany this?
Its also very good for making homebrew beer
Great product but I can't see any 'deal' here. Were much cheaper in Aldi recently.
Good price for this item. I have two sous vide wands, both from Aldi bought at unbelievable price of £15 each! Have been using them frequently since I bought them. Brilliant for steak and other more adventurous dishes: once you’ve tried sous vide lobster there is no going back. Am mid use right now, have been cooking a brisket for 36 hours at 68 degrees. Will finish off today with three hours in smoker bbq. Special meal for special folks.

Of course there are quicker ways to cook — this really isn’t for the Pot Noodle generation. But if you want perfection, sous vide provides a level of control and accuracy that’s unsurpassed.

This Anova device gets great reviews, not sure why you’d need the Bluetooth, but being a bit of a gadget geek, I’m sure it would be a lot of fun! Heated

I bought a really cheap one from Amazon. It was rubbish, with one of my bags splitting on first use. Then I went a bit further up the price ladder and bought this amazon.co.uk/gp/…rch It does the job, and can take bag rolls (more economical). You can pay a lot more, and I’m sure you’d get more for your money. But this one will do the job well enough for most of what you need when starting out.

I'm willing to bet both your steaks taste great. It's horses for courses. Buy a typical supermarket steak, bring it to room temperature, make sure your skillet is super hot, and you can cook an amazing steak that way. But in another scenario, sous vide is better, imagine a really thick bit of fillet (say 6-7cm thick). Cook it in the pan and you'll have a piece of meat with a nice crust on the outside, followed by a layer that's a bit overdone, followed by a bit that's nicely medium rare, followed by a bit of jelly blue in the middle. There are ways to mitigate against that (e.g. baking in the oven at a low temp), but with varying results. Now if you sous vide the same steak for a couple of hours at 53 degrees, that same steak will be medium rare from edge to edge. Finishing off in the pan will give you the crust you need (plus I like to finish with a blow torch to give it a bit more of a burnt edge and render any surface fat). Another added advantage is that if you're not ready to serve said steak, it can sit in the water bath for another hour or even longer -- it still won't cook past medium rare because the temperature never rises above that point: hard to get your head around, but that's the true difference of cooking this way. So if your guests are late or you've not budgeted enough time to make a Bearnaise, etc. this affords you that flexibility and control. The exception to the rule for me is ribeye steak. That lump of fat in the middle of your steak stays too jelly when cooked sous vide. I prefer a grill pan on searing heat to get it to render properly, albeit at the expense of consistency that I'd otherwise get sous vide. Peace

Bluetooth Is good to look in the app for recipe / the food and done level and press start and it's sent to the phone and alerts on phone timings and steps. Not a must have but it's useful

That's fine. This product is not aimed at you so save your money. Some of us are wired different, want to experience the best and are prepared to put in the time to get it. You are happy, we are happy so i don't see an issue.
This and an actifry are in constant use in my house, this is a gadget you will use once you tast the quality of the meat you cook, even cheap steak cuts are unreal.

It is used for a completely different purpose. I think you'll find most people with one of these have a slow cooker.
