Sous vide, also called vacuum cooking, is a method by which you can prepare food. With this technique, you can cook all kinds of recipes, such as steak, salmon, or asparagus at a low temperature. In sous vide cooking, the food is vacuum packed in plastic or plastic containers. It is then cooked in a water bath at a low, but constant temperature. As a result, the food gets a special texture and flavour. At Cookinglife, you will find a wide range of sous vide supplies, from insulation balls to sous vide sticks. Whether you want to cook fish, meat, vegetables, fruit, eggs or soups sous vide, we have all the necessities!
If you want to vacuum cook food, then a sous vide stick is indispensable. This is a compact device that has multiple functions. It acts as a thermometer, water pump and heating element all at once. You insert the sous vide stick into the water bath in which the vacuum-packed food lies. The stick measures the temperature of the water and heats the water to the desired temperature. The pump ensures a continuous supply of water in the water bath and spreads the heat evenly.
At Cookinglife you can buy various sous vide sticks. We offer sticks from leading brands, such as Wartmann, Hendi and Espressions. Also in terms of power, there is plenty to choose from. We have sous vide sticks in a range of wattages, including:
Most sous vide sticks are very easy to use. We have variants that you control through an LCD display, like the Wartmann WM-1508. We also have variants that you can control via WiFi using an application, such as the Hendi Sous Vide Stick iVide Plus Junior.
Our recommendation: Wartmann WM-1508
Vacuum packed cooking can be done with a stick, but also with a sous vide device. For example, we offer appliances that allow you to both slow cook and cook sous vide. It works very simply: you add the vacuum-packed food to the sous vide machine and then set the timer and temperature. From then on, all you have to do is wait for the dish to be ready. Take a look at the Espressions Sous Vide & Slow Cooker, for example.
For sous vide cooking you need a water bath. You can create this with a pot, but you can also use a sous vide container. The advantage of a tray over a pan is that the trays are transparent. This allows you to see exactly how your dish is doing. At Cookinglife you will find different sous vide containers, with or without lids. Many of our sous vide containers are made of high-quality polycarbonate. This not only ensures that the container is sturdy, but also that it is dishwasher safe. The containers usually come with a capacity of 12 litres.
Finally, you can also find sous vide bags, also known as vacuum bags. We have both reusable and disposable bags. You can also find a vacuum bagger that allows you to vacuum pack food before you cook it sous vide. We offer bags that are BPA-free and bags where you can determine the size yourself. Of course, all our sous vide bags are food safe.
