Sous vide cooking is now a fixture in many commercial kitchens. Defined as “under vacuum,” Sous vide pronounced ‘So Veed’ is a cooking method that uses a precisely controlled water bath to cook food to a specific temperature for a specific amount of time, whilst retaining nutrients and natural juice. It is nearly impossible to over or undercook, resulting in food that is cooked evenly and perfectly every time, with a tender, juicy texture, and rich flavour.

There are many benefits to using a sous vide water bath, including:

Consistency: Sous vide cooking is a very precise method. You can be sure that your food will be cooked evenly every time. This is especially important for dishes that are difficult to cook evenly, such as fish and eggs.

Juiciness: Sous vide cooking helps to retain the moisture in food, resulting in tender, juicy results. This is because the food is cooked in a sealed bag, which prevents the moisture from escaping.

Flavour: Sous vide cooking helps to develop the flavour of food, as the food is cooked slowly and gently. This allows the flavours to blend and create a rich, complex flavour profile.

Convenience: Sous vide cooking is a very convenient method. Once you have your food in the bag and the water bath is set to the correct temperature, you can simply walk away and let it cook.

Safety: Sous vide cooking is a safe method. The food is cooked to a high enough temperature to kill any harmful bacteria.

Waste reduction: Sous vide cooking helps to reduce food waste. You can cook food in smaller batches and store the leftovers for later.

Flexibility: Sous vide cooking is a versatile method. You can cook a wide variety of foods, including meat, fish, vegetables, and even desserts.

Sous Vide or Immersion Circulator?

Both sous vide machines and immersion circulators are devices that use a circulating water bath to cook food to a specific temperature for a specific amount of time, but Immersion circulators are typically more affordable than sous vide machines. They may have fewer features but are still very effective at cooking food sous vide style. A good option for those chefs looking for a way to cook sous vide without breaking the bank.
