The Sansaire immersion circulator is the only tool you need to cook sous vide, and it only costs $199. Just place the Sansaire in a pot or basin, add water, and set your cooking temperature. The Sansiare maintains the water temperature, ensuring that your foods will cook perfectly every time. In the last few years, a few companies have marketed devices for sous vide cooking. Unfortunately, those devices are often too expensive for home use.
Sous vide is a cooking method that uses precise temperature control to achieve perfect results, every time.
On a stovetop, in an oven, or on a grill, you’re cooking with temperatures that are much higher than you ever want your food to reach. As a result, if you turn your back for a moment too long, your steak can overshoot perfection and end up as a tough, gray mess. And, even if you do achieve a medium-rare interior, the high heat environment of traditional cooking creates bands of overcooked areas around the outside of your food.
By contrast, sous vide uses relatively low temperatures to achieve perfect, repeatable results that you just can’t replicate through any other method. Foods are cooked evenly from edge to edge, to exactly the doneness you want. And, because foods won’t overcook while they hang out in the water bath, dinner is ready when you are.
These identical steaks were both cooked to an internal temperature of 52°C / 125.6°F. The steak on the left was cooked sous vide, as evidenced by its edge-to edge even doneness. The steak on the right was cooked on a cast-iron skillet.
How it works
The Sansaire is an immersion circulator: it houses the heating coils, thermometer, microcontroller and water-circulating motor that work together to maintain a precise temperature in your water bath. Unlike some other sous vide machines, which have a fixed-size water bath, or require you to use your own rice cooker or crock pot, the Sansaire circulator works with any container. Just making a few eggs for breakfast? Attach the Sansaire to a small saucepan, and you’re ready to cook! Cooking racks of ribs for a crowd? No problem – the Sansaire will heat and
circulate up to 6 gallons of water in a large basin!
