Wanting to get into Sous Vide? Give this unit a try!
October 1, 2017
Hello there! This review is keeping in mind that this is a very inexpensive unit. I had previously owned a Sansaire Sous Vide which is four times the price(at least it was at the time I purchased it) and fell in love with Sous Vide Cooking. My Sansaire did not survive the movers in a cross country move (it simply went missing, not broken) so i will actually be able to compare a higher priced model at the same time as I review it's replacement. The Sansaire had an "alligator clip" type connector to keep the device attached to your container, This uses a more rudimentary C Clamp with a screw type setup. In terms of the two, it's slightly more clunky when getting it on or off, however, once it's on, there is no slipping of the unit unlike the Sansaire. The way the unit mounts to the clip also allows you to direct the water flow if you feel that is necessary (a delicate meat may need to have less direct heat applied for example) the Sansaire was larger both in height, width and weight. I find that I like G&M's smaller unit because it's easier to store in the cabinets at the house, as well as takes up less space in the pot I usually use. This unit has a built in dial to change the temperatures and where I think the Sansaire has higher temperature precision control, G&M will give you basically one click per degree rather than being able to control it down to a tenth of a degree. I don't think that in reality my palate is able to tell a steak at 135.6 versus 135. Over all, if you are interested in getting into the Sous Vide sphere, G&M has a pretty decent product for a great price, and has done a very good job on the three times I've used it so far.
