Probably still waiting for it to arrive :O)


It's sous-vide, of course it's slow!

Probably still waiting for it to arrive :O)

Thread bump: how are you all getting on with this, now you've had it for a while?

So how is everyone getting on with it? Been offered another make for £40 and seriously tempted!

ordered on the 14th, despatched on the 15th - it just arrived downstairs in the office, so took 5 days from ordering and 4 days from sending

cant wait to have a play tonight

No one is going to tell if there bisphenol or other carcinogens in your plasmic bag. Much safer with steel pressure cooker, food cooks much faster and more delicious than this slow cooking in plastic wrap.

Risks aside. A pressure cooker is nothing to compare by. Pressure cookers are great for some things and I use both. Good luck cooking a perfect edge to edge steak with no colour banding or loss of moisture.... chicken breast 60°c and perfectly juicy..... Pork fillet.... salmon.... etc..etc. I get the plastic thing but you cannot in anyway compare sous vide and a pressure cooker. Don't be such a delicate butterfly, you can find evidence that most things are going to kill us. I've yet to see a death attributed to sous vide and most decent restaurants use this method for a reason. Live a little, take a risk and stop being a HUKD bore/scaremongerer.

Just because I don't agree with you , I am a troll . How convenient. But Cancer is real and be careful of plastic and chemicals in your food . You can never be too careful . If you go to Asia or Africa they do not get Cancer like the modern world due to their primitive cooking methods.

Those poor fish that you want to use an 800 watt precision immersion cooker on. Differences include the precision of this device is at 0.01 of a degree, range of temp the components operate under, embedded circulation and also when you add comms to the fish tank those prices also jump a lot.

Dunno how anyone can mess up a steak frying or grilling over charcoal. Pork may benefit but this seems like an excessive amount of tooling around especially if you still have to sear the steak afterwards

Hmmmmm - whilst you have a point I think you are also a little misleading and incorrect on a few points:
Tyranicus66

Utter rubbish. Any restaurant worth their salts wouldn't go anywhere near … Utter rubbish. Any restaurant worth their salts wouldn't go anywhere near sous vide for steak



The Neptune, The Fat Duck, Comme Chez Soi, The Gore hotel or Restaurant Frantzén just to name a few that their Michelin chef's advertising dishes with examples of steak prepared sous vide (of course they also have other steak dishes cooked by other techniques).

Tyranicus66

the HACCP surrounding it is an absolute nightmare. Enviromental health … the HACCP surrounding it is an absolute nightmare. Enviromental health officers hate them and generally they are only used to prep terrines / pates etc....


As above and below they are not only used to prep terrines and pates.
Also on some produce they are a blessing to HACCP e.g. eggs can have pathogens eliminated before their previously raw use in many dishes. Veg requires a temp higher than any gram positive strain can survive whilst sealed. The incorrect storing, monitoring and management is HACCP biggest issue which whilst this technique has some specific considerations (more applicable to restaurants than home use) it is not a unique issue to sous vide.

Tyranicus66

Good steak restaurants use proper charcoal grills like a "Josper" in … Good steak restaurants use proper charcoal grills like a "Josper" in combination with extremely complicated and expensive combi ovens (Rationale etc..).


Alexander's Steakhouse (Michelin starred) advertises sous vide for the strip steak, lobster, pork belly etc. again not exclusively as other dishes are cooked just as you suggest.

Not voting hot or cold as love mine but got it a bit cheaper before xmas.
However, I have never had better tasting steak, fish as delicate and their flavours intact in my home cooking prior to this device. Carrots are hard to describe other than they are carrots but more so. Egg's are amazing but I still have lots of experiments to go yet albeit read yesterday if wanting to chill drinks (or other things) nothing faster than circulating ice water that this can do.

I have one, it's great for steak, just saying......

"Sous vide" is just hipster for boil-in-the-bag.

You can get a similar result with a slow cooker and a Digital LED … You can get a similar result with a slow cooker and a Digital LED Dual-use Temperature Controller Thermostat (about £7), if your slow cooker is the type that has a turn knob then you plug the slow cooker into the thermostat and set the temperature, place the sensor in the water and away you go. Add a sealed bag with whatever meat you are cooking and follow the temperature and time guidelines. My mate gets great results every time and he couldn't boil a kettle before that. I ignore the haters, I know I'm eating the most delicious steaks I could have imagined, at home.

This has been £169.95 for ages, excellent reviews and never seen it this cheap! Just ordered one myself and thought a great deal to post my first ever deal.

now they are charging 170 quid for it - absurd! (this is for the standard bluetooth version)

Ordered mine on 30/11 and it still hasn't been sent! No response to emails and their customer service number just goes to voicemail (left a message and still no response!)

Ordered mine last week and recieved today and already using it!

Been watching youtube all day at work, could not believe you can leave a steak in it all day at a certain temp, and it will always stay rare or medium depending on temp. The girlfriend thinks im nuts, but hey, wifi and food.. YUM!!
Going to use a steel soup type pot for now, want to get a cheap cooler in the future, it seems to handle larger portions, and retains heat a lot better. But it only seems it uses about 9p of electric every hour, so another bargain, better than slow cooking, garlic butter serloin here I come.
And remember you dont need a vacuum sealer as you can use ziploc bags (But they have to be ZIPLOC brand) as the others use PTFE which is no good for heat.

It's a sous vide device or also know as a water bath but instead of a large water bath which can be difficult to store this just fits into pans you have at home. Google it, they do work if your that way inclined or you can continue pricking the plastic packaging before lobbing into a microwave.

looking forward to this reaching 52 degrees for two hours. (_;)




Touche! ..very "on subject" humour X)

I have two as I was a Kickstarter donor. Work great for me. Better than the tanks as much easier to store away. And you can choose your pot/tank to suit your food size. Think I paid £240 for two so prices now are almost as good as early backers :-)

thanks for posting, just ordered. Been after one for a while!
