It's Amazon Prime Day and I came across a well-rated SV stick...

https://www.amazon.com/Immersion-Circulator-Precision-Thermometer-beautiful/dp/B07HY2K9XX/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=sous+vide&psr=PDAY&qid=1602587565&s=prime-day&sr=1-3

Seems as if it would be a good entry unit for me. I really don't feel like spending $90-$150 for one of the top rated SV sticks.

They show it used in a stainless pot. That seems to me that it wouldn't be that good for longer cooks because of the heat loss.

Do you use one of the plastic containers for your Sous Vide? Do you use any kind of cover?

My Instant Pot has a sous vide function but I haven't even explored recipes yet.

Just thought I'd mention that in the event you were thinking about getting an IP at some point.

I bought this  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000R8JOUC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074MXRV2K/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Although I have certainly also done sous vide in an uncovered stainless steel stockpot, and I suspect the heat loss was not significant.  It certainly did not change the results.

Not really, no. I have a pressure cooker, which I like very much.

And now, for the WTF entry into sous vide...

$75 for... this?

No.

Type 'sous vide' into the Prime Day Deals address bar of Amazon, and you will see a number of sous vide units still available for Prime Day.

How do you think I found the first one?

MAGIC!

This one looks like a viable candidate.

Ordered it. Even better, I had $15 in gift cards from a couple of surveys I participated in.

Back to the stainless steel stock pot, I use a large one for my SV cooking and don't have heat loss but the water will evaporate over time so I cover it with saran wrap to keep the evaporation down.

OK, that's good to know about the stock pot not really being a big issue. I'll hold off on investing in a container. I have several stock pots/dutch ovens that will likely be good candidates for use. I figured I'd cover it with either foil or a flexible cutting mat to cut down on the evaporation.

Amazon also has food grade... essentially ping pong balls... that you pour into the water. and it forms both an insulator and a seal. Overkill if you ask me.

I think the first thing I'm going to try is sous vide brussels sprouts with butter and balsamic vinegar.

OK, the unit is being delivered Friday, a day early (supposedly).

I think my first test run is going to be Brussels sprouts, specifically this recipe...

https://under500calories.com/recipe/129bf-sous-vide-1-hour-brussel-sprouts-with-bacon-and-garlic

But... the recipe page isn't there to tell me how long and at what temp to cook it. OK, I'll improvise. There's another recipe that looks good, but it takes a cup of butter. No way.

I may give shrimp a try, as well.

Just got notification that the SV machine has been delivered. Of course I had just plopped down at the office, so I texted my neighbors to grab it just in case it decided to walk off.

Going to play around with it this evening, but probably won't really make anything yet.

Nice. Thanks.

I was figuring 185 for 1 hour based on other instructions I've seen for cooking sprouts.

And that reminds me... I need to get thick cut bacon...

I bet they would rock with just some balsamic vinegar, as well.

Well I'll be.

You can make sous vide grits and oatmeal.
