    What's happening RC land, does anyone have a Sous Vide cooker? What have you made, liked, disliked, ect.

    I have the Anova precision cooker and have made steaks, tuna steaks, chicken but haven't adventured beyond that.

    Are the insta pots all they are cracked up to be?

    I guess so, although Sous vide isn't really new. I am just trying to see if anyone has been adventurous

    I’ll probably get one, they seem to be pretty established and proven as far as being a reputable means of temperature consistency. I’m hard to be convinced from methods other than traditional, I’m a Francis Mallman style cooker that’s for sure, I don’t think you would ever catch him cooking with a sous vide!

    I just don’t like the idea of cooking in plastic. I try to eliminate using plastic for cooking as much as I can so I’ve been put off.

    I made sous vide steak (in my instant pot:crazy:) and swore I would never cook a steak solely on the barbecue again. Also did some asparagus at the same time. So delicious!

    I'll have to Google up some reviews as well - the Home Hardware one is looking well priced, and Christmas is coming. (my wife never knows what to give me, other than my list of PS4 games).
