Simply tighten the circulator clamps onto any pot or tank, up to 20 liters (5.3 gallons), and transform it into a controlled bath, capable of preparing a meal for up to 12 guests.

What is Sous Vide Cooking? The idea behind Sous Vide cooking is almost as old as cooking itself; some of the earliest civilizations realized that wrapping food in leaves or potted in fat not only helps preserve the food, but helps keep it moist during the cooking process. Why? It has to do with the transfer of heat into the food - more gentle cooking methods have the ability to keep the food from drying out. Modern Sous Vide cooking has evolved over the last 30 years and now is as simple as ever: seal your contents in a plastic bag, and submerge in a water bath set to a very specific temperature using an immersion circulator - allowing a low, slow, and precise cooking time, yielding amazingly consistent results.
