Imagine making consistent restaurant quality meals at home with almost entirely hands-off cooking. Imagine locking in flavor and natural juices while skipping excess oils for perfectly cooked steak, chicken, and lamb every time. There’s a reason so many home cooks are flocking to sous vide, a cooking trend that’s perfect for those cozy winter days at home.

How It Works

Sous vide is the process of cooking food that’s vacuum sealed in a bag in a controlled water bath. The reason chefs and amateur cooks alike love it is that you can make nearly anything, from meat, poultry, and fish, to tender flavor-packed vegetables, without constantly watching the stove. This French cooking method leads to consistent results every time thanks to the precise slow cooking at a specific temperature.

Healthier Eats

While heavy holiday comfort foods can make you feel sluggish and bloated, the sous vide method allow you to cook produce and meat with no added oils. The natural flavors come through, so you can ditch the added salt for fresh or dried herbs for an extra delicious meal. Because sous vide traps in moisture, it means you’ll be able to perfectly cook steaks and salmon from edge to edge, getting a perfectly juicy or flaky middle without drying out the sides.
