The large illuminated digital display makes programming the TFA Sousmatic 14.1551.01 simple. Just enter the desired time and temperature according to your recipe. Then clip it on a pot or container of water, up to 25 liters. It will warm the water to the desired temperature, at which point you put in your vacuum-sealed food. The pump in the Sousmatic circulates the warmed water around the food to gently and slowly cook it, preserving much more of the nutrients compared to regular high-temperature cooking.
What is Sous Vide?
Sous vide is French for "under vacuum." It refers to cooking vacuum sealed foods in water at a very precise temperature. This method is commonly used by professional chefs in expensive restaurants to achieve the best results with meat, chicken, fish, vegetables, and eggs. Slow cooking in vacuum bags seals in the flavor, making it the most tender and juiciest cooking method. Until recently, the only sous vide circulators were expensive commercial devices costing thousands of dollars. Now it is possible to buy units designed for home cooking at very reasonable prices.
What is needed for sous vide cooking?
Since sous vide involves cooking vacuum-sealed foods in water, there are three tools needed:
- A large pot to hold water (generally anywhere from 6-12 liters)
- A sous vide circulator to heat and evenly distribute the water
- A vacuum sealer (we recommend the Vidia Vacuum Sealer since its integrated scale lets you measure food precisely)
Simple to operate
Make the most tender meats possible
The Sousmatic 14.1551.01 circulator attaches to almost any pot or water container up to 25 liters. The gentle low temperatures not only make food amazingly tender, but also preserve much of the nutrition that can be lost at higher temperatures. It works not only for meats such as beef, chicken, and fish, but also makes delicious vegetables (carrots cooked in sous vide are amazing), eggs, and custard-based desserts like creme brulee.
