I don't know how true it is, but that's one of the warnings in the Start-up instructions.

I hope you post some more of your efforts and point for posting this one!

Thank You Disco!!

I'm working on a couple that might help with your Sweet Talking. One will be done for Supper tomorrow, and another one I should be doing Mid-Week. Hopefully they'll be Great ones!!

And Thanks for the Points.

I listened without saying a word, then added "I bet they sous vide their chicken and veggies." Then I went on to explain how sous vide infuses flavor and maintains moisture.  Honestly, I don't know if everything I was saying was accurate, but man oh man, I was SELLING IT! 

 

She says, "Well, if that's what sous vide does, we need to get one."  :banana_smiley:

 

Recognizing another opportunity, I said, "The handheld vacuum sealer we have won't work with sous vide.  We need a countertop model, one of the smaller ones that don't take up much room." 

 

She say's, "Whatever it takes."  :yahoo:

 

Now the research starts!  thumb1.gif

 

 


Sounds like you better get searching, so you can strike while the Iron is Hot !!!

 

If you get a new sealer, get one you can Double seal with!

Mine's a PITA. I have to seal once, then trim a half inch off the end, so it will go in the machine another half inch. Then I can do the second seal.

Thank You Justin!!

 

And thanks for the reminder---I might have to save some steaks or Backstraps from the next Deer, instead of turning it all into Deerburger.

And Thanks for the Points.

Nice unit Bear!
So that I don't clutter the kitchen I set mine up in the garage. It turns every cut of meat into tender juicy cuisine and takes all the guess work out of donness. I smoke vacuum pack and freez my meats and have always been concerned about over heating when warming them up. It's not a problem anymore as the SV will not heat beyond the set degree. Some things take days to cook with the SV. Also not a problem since there is no tending involved other than adding water at higher cooking temps. The SV doesn't fluctuate even by 1° Which is in itself a big deal to cooking to perfection without the big swings in either direction.
All in all it's a great cooking tool that works well with smokers and grills, but can't replace either one. Because we love to smoke!

Randy,

Randy,


Thanks Randy!!

I agree entirely, however mine fits nicely next to the sink, which makes it easy to fill directly with hot water from my Sink Hose Sprayer, and easy to dump the water into the sink, after it cools.

 

I'm looking forward to a lot of Great Meals & Great Reheats with this thing!!
