I’ve spent quite a bit of time and money on different Sous Vide equipment and accessories. Below you will find my current setup and what I am most happy with.
The Anova Culinary AN500-US00 Sous Vide Precision Cooker is my goto Sous Vide appliance!
Perfect results every time: never over or undercook your food again. The Anova precision cooker sous vide circulates water at the exact temperature required for perfectly cooked meals, no matter what’s on your menu. Use the Anova app to access thousands of free recipes and monitor your cook from anywhere via your smartphone.
New and improved: now with more power, faster heat up times, and improved Wi-Fi connection all in a smaller and more durable body, The Enova precision cooker is the perfect option for any home chef. It easily attaches to any stock pot or container with a fully adjustable clamp, and is water resistant for when accidents happen in the kitchen.
Easy to use: simply attach the precision cooker to your own pot or container, fill the pot or container with water, add your food in a sealed bag, and cook manually with the built-in controls or with the Enova app.
The LIPAVI C26 Sous Vide Rack, L15 – Family & Friends Size is the rack that I use in my LIPAVI C20 container. I went through a number of these and had a hard time finding the right size. This one is perfect for cooking multiple steaks and any other large proteins you are going to conquer.
EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY MATERIALS AND BUILD – When putting stainless steel into a water bath, some people express concerns about rust. To be completely sure that rust will never be an issue, we chose 316L Marine Grade Stainless Steel for our sous vide racks, to ensure that the LIPAVI sous vide rack will keep 100% rust free, even when cooking for extended periods of time.
For the final step in sous vide cooking, I sear my proteins with the awesome Flame King YSNPQ-5000T Heavy Duty Propane Torch Weed Burner.
There are a ton of different methods for searing your proteins and I think I’ve tried them all. While the Flame King YSNPQ-5000T Heavy Duty Propane Torch Weed Burner is not designed for this purpose, someone turned me on to the idea and given its relatively low cost, I decided to give it a try. Honestly, it was love at first sight!
These are low cost and this one lasts me about a year before I get concerned about the rust on it. I leave it outside, uncovered, so I could probably get some more time out of it if I took better care of it.
