Sansaire promises to transform your ordinary pot into an elegant sous vide device

You never knew what your humble pot was capable of — until you met the Sansaire Delta. Re-establishing its presence on the sous vide bandwagon, which is quickly becoming the latest trend for tech-savvy home cooks, is sous vide veteran Sansaire, whose latest product promises to make “perfect cooking even easier.” The clip-on device turns any old pot into a sous vide machine, which means that you can cook your next culinary masterpieces in a precisely controlled water bath. Trust us, it’s all the rage.

The point behind the sous vide technique is to create consistent, evenly cooked food. While controlling the temperature of your burner or your oven can be a bit dicey, water is much easier to manipulate (at least up to 212 degrees Fahrenheit, after which it boils). And with a device like the Delta, you can decide exactly at what temperature you’d like to cook your meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, eggs, and more. Using the Delta is easy thanks to the device’s front-and-center interface, which promises to “transform your ordinary pots into quiet, precise, and elegant cooking devices.”

Of course, Sansaire isn’t the only player in the sous vide game. For example, there’s Anova, whose device is more of a stick that you place in a pot of water, in contrast to the Delta’s clip-on design. But both devices are Wi-Fi connected, and come with a companion mobile app available on both iOS and Android. With the Delta, you can program your cooking instructions and cook times directly from your smartphone, and receive a notification when your dinner is ready.

The triangular device is currently available for pre-order for $199, which means that it will practically pay for itself within a few meals (because if you’re going out to eat sous vide, you’d better be prepared to pay a pretty penny). Sansaire hopes for a ship date of August in the United States, and a bit later in Europe, the United Kingdom, and Australia.

New products from Vesta will take your sous vide game to the next level

Sous vide has had quite an impressive run, making its way from Michelin-starred chef's kitchens to ... well, our kitchens. Despite the strides this culinary technique has already made thanks to devices like Anova and Joule, there are still plenty of home chefs who are a bit skeptical about cooking their food in a plastic bag and some hot water. But now, we may have a way to convince even the least daring of our culinary compatriots to give this precise method of cooking a try. It's all thanks to a new line of offerings from Vesta, a Seattle-based company on a mission to make "sous vide even more popular ... for everyday cooks and chefs alike."

With a number of industry-first inventions up its sleeve, Vesta is looking to make a splash at the International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago next week. First up, there's the VacuPot, a machine that allows you to to cook sous vide sans the sealed bags. Claiming to be a "dream for cooking soups, stews, and delicate foods you don’t want to ‘vacu-smash’ (like salmon or stuffed grape leaves)," this contraption allows you to slowly cook your food at a precise temperature but without the need for plastic. Frankly, this sounds a lot like a slow cooker (with more precise settings), but if that's your cup of tea, then the VacuPot could be a hit.

Appliance makers bring sous vide to the stove with built-in precision cooking

When immersion circulators dropped to under $200, sous vide suddenly became a much more attainable cooking style for a lot of people. The technique is often practiced in restaurants because it delivers consistent results. Suddenly, a lot of people were cooking off the stove, using a device that fits in a drawer. At KBIS 2018, we saw a few appliance makers incorporating technology into their ranges to allow homeowners to perform all the steps of the sous vide process — including searing — without needing an extra gadget.

The trick with sous vide is that it needs to hold a consistent temperature. To take advantage of a hot water bath that stays at 142 degrees Fahrenheit for hours, chefs will vacuum seal a pork chop and let it slowly cook. Signature Kitchen Suite — the premium appliance brand from parent company LG — has a 48-inch range with lots of ways to cook, including sous vide. There are two ovens, one of which is a combi-steam and takes advantage of both steam cooking and convection technology. On top there are several burners, including a couple of low-temp ones that can get to around 100 degrees Fahrenheit. But the range doesn’t use any of these for sous vide. Instead, it has a shallow compartment that’s controlled by separate knobs. One controls temperature to within one degree, and the other is a timer knob, which goes all the way up to 48 hours. Naturally you’ll have to add (and re-add, as the case may be) the water, but the range should take care of the rest.

Sous vide is a fast-growing trend, but most sous vide appliances can only do that one thing -- they are unitaskers. MasterSous bucks that trend with an innovative approach as an all-in-one multi-cooker. Its unique design allows it to sous vide, simmer, sear, saute, boil, steam, slow-cook, and deep-fry.

The MasterSous is designed with a six-quart, non-stick pot. Using an electronic dial, users can choose the cooking method, time, temperature, and several pre-programmed settings. For instance, MasterSous can heat up oil just below the smoking temperature of eight mainstream oils to perfectly deep fry food.
