I was hesitant at first because it was cheaper than most of the sous vide cookers out there, but I cooked a steak, and it came out a perfect medium rare with literally no gradient. I set the temp at 133 degrees Fahrenheit, and that was the exact temp of my steak when I tested the meat with a thermometer! This can definitely hold its own against the other sous vide machines like Anova, Joule, or any of the other top brands, but at a fraction of the cost.
Great way to begin sous vide cooking. Affordable, follow the booklet. Get great videos from youtube. So far I've cooked duck, turkey, and brisket. For a first time sous vider I am amazed. Easy and smart way to cook. Would be 5 stars if there were a contact site for parts if ever needed.
Sous vide cooking is all its cracked up to be. I have used slow cooking for a while. This is a lot similar. Low temperate cooking over a long period of time. Steaks came up great. Still experimenting with other things. Anyway I really like it :)
