I can't imagine a "kit" working. It's not something you assemble yourself.
If you mean just like a combo that has the immersion circulator with a tub, don't pay extra for the tub. Start out just using a big pot. That's what I used for years before buying a large plastic tub for it (you don't need a cover).
Yes. There aren't many things in the world where doing it the absolute best/perfect way is also the easiest. Cooking sous vide is the best way to do a lot of things and it's foolproof.
I like the fact that you can pick exactly whatever temperature you want. It also really makes it easy to cook from frozen, as you don't need to wait around all day for chicken to thaw or something.
Damn, I have been dysfunctional the last few days... depression set it.
Yes, I mean the tub, vacuum sealer, etc.
So, I should just by the Anova temp gauge?
I don't even have a slow cooker.. I just use a traditional oven for most stuff, dutch oven and my cast iron skillet. Tbh, I do a lot of simmering on low temps to get my meat into stable temperature before I do any searing or roasting.. so it's my poor man's way of sous videing.
Do you have a slow cooker? Use a thermometer on the water temperature and just adjust cook times. I have been using my slow cooker to make sous vide recipes at 150 degrees.
Don't have a slow cooker, but I will definitely buy one. I'm waiting to go back to my new apartment as I have been living in a temporary one for 2 years now.
I was actually ijnterested in Ninja Foodi which I suppose has a slow cooker as well. I will just have to wait for the move..1 month to go.
