    At half the price off the Inova, I went and got the chefman. It's awesome, made great beef ribs and steaks. Next, I'm about to try brisket.

    SOUS VIDE

    |
    Posted .

    INTERESTING WAY TO COOK. WE’VE PASTURIZED EGGS, COOKED CHICKEN AND HAMBURGERS SO FAR THE FLAVOR HAS BEEN GREAT. NEXT PROJECT IS MAKING YOGURT. THE APPLICANCE IS EASY TO USE AND WORKS AS ADVERTISED. IT IS A LITTLE CUMBERSOME AND NOT SO USER FRIENDLY TO SET, BUT NOTHING MAJOR. GLAD THAT WE DIDN’T SPEND THE EXTRA MONEY ON THE BLUETOOTH VERSION. ONCE YOU SET THE TEMP AND THE TIME IS NO REAL REASON TO MONITOR THE PROCESS.

    I like cooking a lot!! I got the Chefman because 1) the price was excellent 2) it looked like anyone can operate it. The benefit of sous vide is that you don't have to worry about cooking something correctly, no having to deal with feeling whatever you're cooking and wondering if it's done. No worrying about whether that item is still raw inside. I cooked salmon, which I did in a normal freezer bag. It was done in 20 minutes!! This is a new way of flawlessly cooking anything I'd like, and with minimal effort yet perfect results. Can't wait to see how far I can take my recipes!

    Great but misleading

    I was going back and forth between this and the Anova brand Sous Vide cooker. I ultimately landed on this as it was half the price of the Anova and "appeared" to have all the same features. It says that this is wifi capable and can be controlled with the app, this is not true. But that is not that big of a deal and I would not have paid the price for the Anova just for that feature. I really wish the spring clamp was removable, there is a screw that holds it on but the way the chord is routed through it, you'd have to break/cut the handle to remove it. This made the customization of my sous vide cooler a little more difficult. I have used it several times over the past month and the food has turned out great!

    Amazing Quality!

    I've had this sous vide for almost 3 months now and I've used it probably 3-4 times a week! I've always been awful at cooking chicken. I'm deathly afraid of under cooked chicken so I always over cook it and it's always super dry. The first time I made chicken with the sous vide, my world was changed! It has the convenience of a slow cooker but without all of the time wasted. I through chicken in a bag with some ingredients and set the sous vide for 155 degrees for maybe 2 hours then take it out and sear it and it's delicious! I've also made steaks that were phenomenal. I have yet to experiment with vegetables but that's next! I would definitely recommend this sous vide, especially for the price!

    Great product at a great price.

    Liked it so much I bought another one within a week. That way I can have veggies or dessert cooking at the same time. I'm not sure you need all the bells and whistles of other models. Sure, I could use my smartphone with other models to turn it on and off, but who's going to put the food in it? I have to be there anyway. Yes, scrolling through recipies and just punching that in would be nice, but really isn't necessary if you want to save a buck and still have a great product. Meats come out better than any other cooking method. I promise you've never tasted chicken this juicy and perfectly done before!

    Awesome Cooking Accesory

    Posted .

    This is one of those "wow" pieces of equipment in my cooking arsenal. The sous vide allows me to set it and forget it. And when I return, the selected me, or vegetable is done, with the exception of searing the meat-easy peasy. The food is full of the seasonings that it was cooked in. Love it!

    I bought this during Black Friday sales and got it for a great price. It doesn't have Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity but for its price, it does a great job of cooking. I also bought a much more expensive Bluetooth/WiFi enabled sous-vide machine from Anova and this device from Chefman is as good as Anova in terms of cooking. I wish Chefman update their app and provide better and more accurate recipes and cooking temperature guidelines though (I noticed a few that are outright incorrect). But you can easily find out this info just by Googling, or you can also buy sous-vide cooking guide book.

    After using it for a year, I can say: From all of the sous vide circulators offered by BB, this one had the highest wattage from all. So I went for it. Temperature is always stable trough out the cook. Awesome... It was on sale, so I got this thing at a nice price. The unit works flawlessly, powerful circulator and keeps the temperature on +/- 1º, verified with an external thermometer. I have been cooking all my meats/fish/chicken with this thing and cook after cook they all come out perfect. Now my favorite. Chefman customer service is awesome! The handle/clip for my unit cracked, my own bad. Within 2 emails and a couple days I got a brand new unit. Thank you CHEFMAN for great customer support service. Thank you Best Buy for having awesome products

    For the price, it keeps up!

    It looks just like the $120 dollar one right down to the fact if the chefman logo wasn't on it, you wouldn't know the difference. Done a steak with it, turned out good. If you want the sous vide experience but don't want to pay the tech hipster price tag, pick this one up.

    Works as advertised. Fallen away from sous vide cooking...not the fault of this cooker. Prefer more traditional cooking methods.

    Fantastic device

    If you are spending your money on a Bluetooth or WiFi version of a sousvide you are just not understanding the objective of this method, this baby is slow slow slow cooking, for wonderful meat and consistent results on what ever else you cook. This machine performed like a champ my temperature was always within one degree of set point

    If you want to make high end restaurant quality steaks look no further. Sous Vide is the way to go. Just make sure youhave a good way to sear the steaks after coming out of the sous vide.

    LOVE IT!!!

    I freaking love this thing...doesn't have all the bells and whistles with wifi and bluetooth and all...but works flawless. I bought this one mostly for my parents as they are not vary technically inclined so the extra features would be lost with them and a waste of extra money. So far I have made some Tri-tips and I recently made a Rib Roast. Perfect edge to edge medium-rare. I would diffidently recommend. Personally I am going to buy a more feature packed version for my self and keep this for my parents.

    Terrific steaks

    Picked this up because I heard great things about sous vide steaks and it was the truth. This is a great machine for a novice like me. Easy to use out of the box, flexible clamp that can fit a variety of pots. We’ve mostly used it for making steaks and they always come out perfectly tender.

    Could not be easier

    Call me a brand groupie if you must but I LOVE THIS SOUS VIDE THING!!!! Seen it a couple of times on TV and saw it on sale here and just had to buy...came today and let me just say I'm never going to a steakhouse again. I made a couple of different steaks to test it out and they all came out INCREDIBLE. I thought it might be one of those things you buy and never use but wow, I'm going to be using this for everything now - can't wait to try! It also comes with an app but that doesn't connect yet, I called the company and they said they will be releasing a wifi one in a few months which sounds pretty cool to me!

    I got this for my dad who loves to cook, and he's fallen in love with it. He makes these amazing dishes all the time now, and tells me how much he enjoys how precise it is. So I guess in the end it's more of a gift for myself, since I get to eat what he makes with this product! 5 stars.
