The Oliso SmartHub & Top is a countertop sous-vide machine. Sous vide is a method of cooking in which vacuum-sealed food cooks in a heated water bath.

The Oliso SmartHub & Top is made up of a double-walled container and an induction base that heats the top.

The SmartHub can be used as an induction cooktop with pots and pans you already own.

The display on the Oliso SmartHub shows the set temperature, the current water temperature and a timer when you're cooking. A different set of features appear when you use just the induction hub.

The Oliso system is available on the company's website for $500 (roughly £330 or AU$680), a price that's on par with similar countertop systems.

The Oliso SmartTop can get heavy and cumbersome when it is filled with water. At one point, the top weighed 25 pounds (11.3kg) when I filled it with water.

A glass top prevents water levels from decreasing in the Oliso SmartTop.

Oliso plans to introduce other tops that work with the SmartHub, such as a griddle top.
