The $400 SousVant Circulating Sous Vide oven makes countertop sous vide look good, and packs in quite a bit of performance prowess. Click through to see the tasty results.
Unlike other full-sized water bath sous vide machines, the SousVant looks good on your countertop.
The 3-gallon tank gives you plenty of room for big cooks.
The display on the base is simple and easy to use. The only buttons start and stop the cook, and adjust the temperature.
Set the tank on the base, and it'll heat and circulate the water.
The handles on the side make it easy to lift.
Snap the lid in place, and you won't have to worry about evaporation, even over the course of long cooks.
We started to test the SousVant with eggs.
It successfully produced results at a variety of firmness levels. We wanted this one runny.
These hit the middle, still nice and soft, but better able to hold a shape.
These were at the firm end, but not overcooked.
The next test -- salmon.
Both fillets proved quite tasty, and were evenly heated to a uniform temperature.
Finally, we tasked the SousVant with softening up a hardy flank steak over 24 hours.
After the cook, I used a water bath to quickly chill the meat.
I dried off the exterior.
Then, I gave it a quick sear to finish the surface.
