Widely used by top chefs, sous-vide means cooking in food-safe bags in a water bath to precise times and temperature. The water circulates and cooks the food to perfect temperature, texture and taste. No more undercooked or overcooked, raw or dry.
Cooking in a bag also allows food to cook on its own juices and precise temperature control stands for keeping the inside at the same doneness as the outside. Many great restaurants rely on sous-vide to make the food we love and perhaps now with the aid of wifi enabled apps to control the sous vide cookware listed below (which means you don’t have to stand around in the kitchen to keep tabs on your food as it cooks), this form of cooking may be become more popular in the home too.
This will be the first of a few blog posts we’ll publish on the latest and smartest ‘connected cookware’.
Mellow is a remote cooking device designed specifically for sous-vide, in which food is placed in vacuum-sealed plastic bags and cooked slowly in steam or a water bath at low temperatures. It will hold food in its the tank at refrigerator temperature until it’s ready to cook, and you can use the mobile app to adjust settings and timers so your meal will be ready the moment you get home. How amazing is that!
