- Monoprice Sous Vide Immersion Cooker 800W: Sous vide is super simple with this immersion cooker, which boasts 800 watts of power. Using the adjustable clamp, you can set your sous vide unit into any pot that you already own (use the unit’s minimum and maximum lines to be certain you’re immersing it correctly). The LED touchscreen on the top makes it a breeze to adjust the cooking temperature and time, and when you’re done cooking with it, you can clean it using your dishwasher.
- ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide 1100 Watts: Don’t have a lot of space in your kitchen? This is the sleekest and smallest sous vide product, coming in at a mere 11” tall and weighing just 1.3 pounds (that’s half the size of other units available). It features a stainless steel base and cap, along with a white body, a clip for attaching the unit to a pot, and a magnetic foot that helps keep it secure in a magnetic pot when not using the clip. It also boasts 1100 watts of power so it works fast. Plus, it’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth ready, working with both Android and Apple devices. After downloading the app, you’ll use your tablet or smartphone to cook up delicious meals.
- Anova Culinary Sous Vide Precision Cooker Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 900W: This is yet another easy-to-use sous vide cooker that anyone can try, even if you’re brand new to this cooking method. Simply fill any pot with water, use the clamp to secure the cooker in the pot, and set the cooking time and temperature using the interface on the unit or your mobile device. The wireless connectivity lets you cook from anywhere, allowing you to control the cooker using your Apple or Android device even while you aren’t in the kitchen, so you can let the unit do all of the work while you relax or take care of other things.
- FoodSaver V2244 Vacuum Sealer Machine with Starter Kit: To cook sous vide, you need to place your ingredients in a plastic bag, and a vacuum-sealed bag is often preferable. This particular vacuum sealer kit includes everything that you need to get started: a heat seal roll, quart heat seal bags, gallon heat seal bags, and accessory hose. It also features a dishwasher-safe drip tray, 1-touch operation, and an extra-wide sealing strip. All you have to do is fill your bag and place the open end into the vacuum-sealing channel. Then, close the lid, press a button, and let the machine do the rest. You can use this unit to prepare your foods for sous vide, or to keep your ingredients fresher for longer before using them.
