This costly sous vide cooker doesn't quite cut it

Kitchen & Household
Hey there guys! I'm Megan Mullerton for cnet Appliances here with the CASO Sous Vide center, model number SV1000. So if you aren't familiar with Sous Vide it's basically a fancy-sounding name for sticking food in a vacuum sealable bag, sealing it up, sticking it in water heated to a specific temperature. And letting it cook gently over an extended period of time. So if you're someone who has a very specific way you like to prepare your steak but you have trouble getting it right every single time on the grill or in the oven. This could help remedy that. But there are a few drawbacks to this specific design. First this thing is pretty big. Like the size of a small toaster oven. So if you're just looking to dabble into [UNKNOWN], this kind of stainless steel cube is going to leave a pretty big footprint on your counter. Also, it's really expensive. It costs 500 dollars. So again, if you're just looking to get an introductory course into [UNKNOWN]. This is a pretty big price to pay. We also notice that the target temperatures, say I wanted to cook something at a hundred and 35 degrees doesn't actually match the temperature of the water in the cooker. It's actually three to four degrees below that temperature, so if you're expecting a certain result. You'll be disappointed right away. You'll need to actually adjust up. So, say, 137, 138, or even 139 degrees to get the result that you were expecting. Even with this temperature disparity, this thing did a pretty good job of cooking. It did cook consistently. I made a bunch of eggs. I made salmon. Steak and pork spareribs, and everything came out fine, but like I said, slightly undercooked. I also really liked that it has a built in vacuum sealer. This works really well, and a hose in the back so you can drain the water instead of having to physically lift this thing up and dump it into your sink after each use. I also really liked that this cooker has a built in circulator, so it'll actually circulate the water around to help maintain. Maintain a consistent temperature. So even though it didn't stick at the perfect target temperature of, say, 135 degrees, it did perfectly maintain 132 or 131. So if you are looking to get into [UNKNOWN] for the first time, I would actually suggest an immersion model, like the Nova 1. This is a hand-held device that you stick inside an existing stockpot. So it won't take up as much space and it was just as accurate, if not more accurate than this model. If you do want a water bath model, say you really are sure that you're going to cook regularly with [UNKNOWN] I would suggest looking elsewhere. Thank you for watching this review of the Caso SousVide Supreme Model Number SV1000. Be sure to check out the rest of our coverage on CNet.com. I'm Megan Woolerton for CNET appliance. [MUSIC]
