This rack has it's pluses and minuses. Overall, I love it and would recommend it. I was going to buy the chrome/steel rack, but it is a little pricey, so at about half the price I tried this one. I wanted to use it several times before reviewing it so I could hopefully provide some info that might help others to know if this is the product they are looking for or not.

What I like: It is light weight and compact when not in use. It is plastic, so it is easy to clean and it doesn't rust or corrode in anyway. The base is fairly thin and doesn't take up a lot of vertical space in my cooking container. It fits nicely in my 12 quart Rubbermaid container, which is what I use most often to cook in. The racks are easily adjustable to different widths. No maintenance required, just rinse and dry after use. Durable, if used correctly.

What I don't like: It's light weight, which I also listed as a plus above, but in this case, it is a minus. If you have anything that floats - such as crab legs or the corned beef I made the other day, it is too light to hold the item down. This was easily corrected by vacuum bagging a 2lb lead shot weight that I use for SCUBA; the same could be done with a rock or anything small and heavy, but in any case, the metal rack would be heavy enough to not have this issue. The other negative is that the plastic racks could be broken if not handled properly when inserting or removing them from the base. It is easy enough to avoid a break by pressing only on the thicker areas, but the potential for a break is there, so I mentioned it.

Overall, I am extremely please with the rack and I would recommend this product to others.

You can leave it as it is when you get it (flat and disassembled) or put it totally together. The black upright holders can be spaced any way you need them. If you have thick items, omit a screen and the opening doubles. Versatile and reasonable.

very adjustable, small enough to fit into my round pot as well.

Great product however a suggestion for the future: add some weights to the base so that it doesn't move around when empty and putting your items in, or, vacuum seal some sand and place it in yourself like I did.

This rack is awesome for sous vide cooking because it can keep the food in place, under the water and can let water flow all around the food. It’s not huge, will hold 4 thick steaks, barely. It will fit in a large pot and is easily adjustable and breaks down easily for storage.

Like the adjustable racks. Use frequently in container. Holding up nicely.

Used just once so far. The base seems very solid but the separators feel very flimsy like they might break but so far so good and am happy with it. It is pretty small and wish they had larger models but likely the plastic separators would break if any larger.

This rack works great when cooking several steaks or items at a time. No worry of food floating to the top and you can change the size between food itmes.

Love the convenience of this rack as well as the ease to make whatever size I need to hold what I'm cooking with the Sous Vide. I use it regularly and can recommend it.

This far exceeded my expectations. Was able to hold my steaks securely under the water leaving enough room for water to circulate. The steaks came out perfectly thanks to this!
