Vactec Thermal Immersion Circulator Professional For Sous Vide Cooking, It’s OK but nothing more

Much far better than the low cost model. Nonetheless extremely pricey for what it is, a kettle with a thermostat and h2o pump. But this machine is simple to use, heats water rapidly and is pretty tranquil. Want i might purchased this product from working day 1.

Bought for laboratory use rather than for use in a kitchen and it appears to work pretty perfectly. Temperature is stable and does the position as hoped. Excellent develop high quality and much more affordable than some alterntives with the exact spec.

I will say that i did not get this products from amazon as i saved the vat )i have had a person of the well known sous vide drinking water baths from amazon that lasted 2 weeks ahead of breaking, it could not cook on . 1 actions which os pretty crucial for sous vide. You should not be fooled into thinking that comprehensive ways of degrees are ok, fantastic steak for me is fifty two. 3 for at the very least 1 hour to whenever /yummy. Circulation is a significantly a lot more successful way to cook, it is much easier to retail outlet as well and ofc you can use the kids plastic storage boxes and ping pong balls, how is that for science. This is a good price for a professional cooks item, bluetooth and wireless are gimmicks. It can take you all-around twenty seconds to program,i felt i should really leave some kind of evaluate although as no one particular else has. If anyone desires any support, shoot a issue.

Comments from buyers

“Why bother with low quality water baths, Good build quality and much cheaper than some alterntives with , Much better than the cheap model”

Outstanding good quality we observed the exact same one remaining employed in a high close restaurant on holiday break they were stunned to hear we experienced a person ourselves a great deal much better than the adhere types easy to use.

This is a assessment of the importing organization as much as it is a overview of the equipment by itself. Normally i object to these kinds of tactic. When persons assign, say… 2 stars mainly because they weren’t delighted with amazon or the supply business when that has nothing at all to do with the item they are reviewing but in this circumstance, due to the fact ecatering are the sole importer (so you virtually just can’t get it wherever else except likely for the additional expensive buffalo) their conduct and support offering mentality is portion of the item. As for the device:accuracy:as for the premise and promise of . 03°c accuracy: it is not even remotely near to fact. I have a experience the maker intended . 3°c (which can make more sense as temp-ways adhere to . 1°c) but considering the fact that it can be specified both of those here and on their web-site as . 03°c that is what i will address. 1st of all as the machine hits the established degree it stops heating.

    Usual problem with things that break down, its always a few months outside of warranty period. Had this for 18 months of light usage, then the lcd display went haywire. Contacted supplier to see if ewe could work something out, maybe even another unit at a reduced price, but got the standard ‘we offer a 1 year warranty,.

    So far i had a great experience with that. As other users say the buttons sometimes don’t record at the first push (thus 1 star removed), but it’s really not a problem. Can make a great plate out of cheaper cuts, especially the braised ones (provided that you know how to use it). Moreover, cooking meat in sous vide allows you to keep it in the fridge for longer times and no need for freezing it. It doesn’t remove the need to pan fry the food to give them the final flavoury crispiness (or initial for the braised), but it allows you to cook the food for hours or days, without the need of checking it every few minutes if it is sticking. Try with chicken breasts to finally have them juicy and tender.

     i pondered over this purchase for some time. Should i get the all in one unit from sous-vide?. Should i go for the cheaper anova or similar?. What about the buffalo that looks identical at some £50 more?.Here’s my reasoning for choosing this one. – this unit will allow variable size water baths to be used, unlike an all-in-one, so it’s not just for the odd steak, you could do a leg of lamb or a rolled sirloin just up the size of your container. – it has a higher wattage that the anova types so can heat up larger water baths and warm them quicker. – it was £50 cheaper than the buffalo and i didn’t expect to use it every day. Spare parts are available if something goes wrongso, a reasonable decision so far.

    This is a review of the importing company as much as it is a review of the machine itself. Normally i object to such approach. When people assign, say… 2 stars because they weren’t happy with amazon or the delivery company when that has nothing to do with the item they’re reviewing but in this case, since ecatering are the sole importer (so you literally can’t get it anywhere else unless going for the more expensive buffalo) their behaviour and service providing mentality is part of the product. As for the machine:accuracy:as for the premise and promise of 0. 03°c accuracy: it’s not even remotely close to reality. I have a feeling the manufacturer meant 0. 3°c (which makes more sense as temp-steps follow 0. 1°c) but since it’s specified both here and on their website as 0. 03°c that is what i will address. First of all as the machine hits the set degree it stops heating.

      1. I bought one of these and then liked it so much, i bought a second one. Amazon says it’s good for 45 litres, i would suggest that 30 litres is nearer the mark. Seems reliable so far and very easy to use.

    Much better than the cheap model. Still very expensive for what it is, a kettle with a thermostat and water pump. But this device is simple to use, heats water quickly and is very quiet. Wish i’d bought this model from day 1.

    Simple to operate, nothing fancy. Except this example doesn’t work as it should. I set the temperature and set the time then press start. It heats up the water to temperature, but nothing else happens. No beep to let me know it’s at temperature no matter how long i leave it working. If i press start once more to set the timer working nothing happens. The timer doesn’t count down. Decided to use the reset button and then switch off, but that made no difference. My settings were still there after switching on.
