What Is Sous Vide?

Sous vide is a gourmet cooking method. Indicating "under vacuum" in French, this cooking method is essentially slow-moving food preparation in water. Food is sealed in air-tight bags as well as submersed in a temperature-controlled water bath. The food then cooks in the water for an extensive amount of time. The uniformity of temperature level as well as time yields ideal results.

There are numerous sous vide dishes online which consist of not just the ingredients, but the suggested time as well as temperature level. Food preparation is as simple as putting all the ingredients in a sous vide cooker, setting the temperature and also time, then waiting up until it's finished.

There are two kinds of sous vide makers-- immersion circulators as well as water ovens. Immersion circulators require an external water container while water ovens do not.

3 of the leading sous vide machines now on the market are the Anova Precision Cooker, Sansaire as well as PolyScience Cook.
