So far, so good. I have already used it to do both short and long cooks, and it has behaved perfectly. I will challenge it later this summer when I do extra long brisket or spare rib cooks. If it continues to work the way it has so far, I can see nothing but five stars in its future. Recommended.
I was so excited to try this when I received it as a gift. I’m not real big on spending a lot of time cooking. So of course at first I thought this might make more work for me. But after some research I realized this is an amazing time saver. I can pre-cook chicken breasts without even having to turn on the stove. And even better than that, they come out super moist and juicy. No added heat in the kitchen, no open flames, no odors. A great way to cook fish! I love fish but cooking it in the house really stinks it up. This is a great way to cook without the odor. Then all you need to do is sear the fish or chicken for a min or two on a pan before serving. Super yummy and cooked perfectly! The Sous Vide itself is super easy to set up and use. Just plug it in, set the temp you want the water to be and let it be. You can even put it on a timer or just let it run until you are done. I use ziplock freezer bags but you can use specially made sous vide bags or foodsavers too. I think the foodsaver would be a great addition so you can cook and freeze. Making meal planning super simple.
