Day 214 - New Sous Vide

I picked up a new sous vide stick from Amazon while we were still able to receive packages. It is made by Joule. I have been using their app for almost a year to get temperatures and cooking times. It has both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity so it also sends notifications to the Apple Watch. You can connect to the device to monitor temperature and time over the Internet as it establishes a connection to their web site.

While cooking, you can see what time the food was added and how long it could be kept warm. The picture changes according to the water temperature you choose and it provides cooking time for frozen items as well as thawed. Once you make your choices, it sends the temperature and time to the device and starts the unit. This model has 40% more power to the heating element so it’s ready to go in less time. It also maintains tighter temperature control.

This is the normal display on the iPhone app showing the current temperature and time remaining. In this case, I cooked a couple of chicken thighs for a quick and easy stir fry this evening after a long day of more moving chores.

I’m planning on taking the old sous vide back to the house next week.

Whatever next for smart cooking aids - impressive! I enjoy cooking too which is just as well because upon my retirement, Jennie announced that I would be taking a 50/50 share in cooking duties. A perfect demonstration of her school ma'am background :-) .

The sous vide is a phenomenal cooking gadget. It is by far the best way to get incredibly tasty and consistent results. Limited skill required.

I have to admit I am old fashioned in the kitchen, Roland however also likes the sous-vide method of food preparation.

The sous vide is a nice option in the RV as it is very forgiving. We don’t have a grill or griddle (by choice) so it is a fabulous way to cook proteins. Very consistent as long as temperature control is good.
