I've never heard of this before, but I'm guessing that many of you have. Probably chef-gal could tell us more about it or anyone that is professionally trained. Sounds interesting:

Fresh ingredients are combined to create complete dishes, they are then vacuum packed into individual portions, and cooked in water with a controlled temperature and lengthy cook time. The result is a perfectly cooked product, vegetables that are tender and have retained nutrients and vibrancy, meat that is juicy, flavorful, and evenly cooked throughout. This method is incredibly precise and relies on temperature control more than anything else to ensure this level of consistent results.

I've had an immersion circulator for sous vide for a couple years now and use it all the time. It's great for all sorts of meats and veggies, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt-making, etc.

Immersion circulators have really expanded from professional kitchens to home use in the last couple years and there are a lot of companies to choose from. They're relatively affordable (~$100).

It's not so much of a drawback as an extra step, but since it's cooked in water you don't get any char on veggies or meat, so you have to broil or sear it to finish. Hot cast iron or a blowtorch work well. Meat, especially, has a weird texture if you serve it without crisping it up.

It's also good for making yogurt.

I could go on but I really like having the option to cook sous vide!

Wow - thanks for the info! Never thought about putting a char on your meat though.

If you've ever had dinner at a large "conference" such as those held at hotels, you have probably had a sous vide meal. Now tell me how badly you want one of those contraptions.

Now that's interesting mtree - those meals are pretty bland.

Look up ChefSteps either on PBS TV or on your computer. They use the Joule for almost everything and have great cooking ideas.

A friend of mine has one and prepared a meal with it. Meh. She had to "finish" the meal on the grill. It was certainly interesting. Not sure it saved much time, but the cooking process itself looked rather hands off...except for the finish.

These are widely used for large gatherings in some restaurants, hotels, and conference centers. Anywhere a large group of people is being served. Been around a long time. Just recently being pushed out to the average consumer. Like most gadgets, its a fad for the common household cook.
