There’s one guy around here who is constantly bragging about how delicious his dinner is which he cooked sous vide. He’s not the only one though. I have heard the stories and seen the photos of dinners around the internet cooked sous vide and they look amazing. I’ve yet to try this method of cooking but it seems to be gaining traction with multiple devices popping up all over the internet. The Nise Wave is the latest one that has shown up on Kickstarter and they’re hoping to lure you in with a lower price on their offering.
From what I am told, cooking sous vide produces a much better quality and more flavorful dinner. According to Wikipedia:
Sous vide is a method of cooking in which food is vacuum-sealed in a plastic pouch and then placed in a water bath or steam environment for longer than normal cooking times (usually 1 to 7 hours, up to 48 or more in some cases) at an accurately regulated temperature much lower than normally used for cooking (typically around 55 to 60 °C (131 to 140 °F) for meat, higher for vegetables). The intent is to cook the item evenly, ensuring that the inside is properly cooked without overcooking the outside, and to retain moisture.
There are several other immersion circulators on the market but the Nise Wave’s super early bird price of $119USD isn’t anything to shake a stick at. That’s actually a pretty good deal and one the company is hoping you’ll jump on. After hearing all of the buzz from friends and family about immersion circulators and sous vide cooking, it’s a very tempting purchase. Check out the company’s Kickstarter page below to back the project, which has already raised $17,479USD of its $35,000USD goal with 43 days to go.
