Perfectly Cooked and Incredibly Easy
I've been interested in sous-vide cooking ever since I first heard of it, but the sous-vide devices have always been too huge and too expensive. So I was intrigued when I first heard about the Sansaire.

I have to say - wow! I was blown away by the perfectly cooked chicken I made last night. And I'm happy to say my family was mighty pleased as well. My wife's comment was, ""It's like cutting through butter!"" With the Sansaire, I was able to cook the chicken at the perfect temperature extremely evenly. It cut like butter because there was no overcooked, harder exterior. It also resulted in very juicy chicken that's flavor easily topped any chicken I've ever cooked.

Cooking was brain dead simple. I seasoned up my chicken breasts, marinaded them in a soy/honey mixture and then dropped them into regular, everyday zip lock bags. I clipped the Sansaire to a regular stockpot I already had, filled the pot with water, and set the temperature on the Sansaire. Once the water was at my desired cooking temperature, I dropped the bags in and walked away for an hour and a half.

While they were perfectly, evenly cooked, the chicken breasts weren't visually appealing. That's just the nature of the method. So I finished them off quickly in a high heat on a skillet just to give them a nice browning.

I'm going to try salmon next. I can't wait to give it a shot

The best poached egg I've ever eaten
I just got one of these amazing little suckers and couldn't wait to try it out. I'm a total novice to sous vide cooking and have always been waaaaaay too lazy to try any of the complicated (and expensive) methods available on the market up until now, despite being very interested in the results.

So as a first toe in the water (see what I did there?) I tried the manufacturer recommended 65�C ""perfect"" egg as my first sous vide cooking experience, and holy crow, what a revelation.

The process couldn't have been easier, I didn't even need a sealed bag for this one, and the results were pretty much amazing. The machine warmed up to temperature very quickly and I placed the egg in and set a timer for 45 minutes. While I wouldn't quite go as far as ""whisper quiet"" the gentle gurgling certainly didn't bother me at all.

Exactly 45 minutes later I took the egg out of the bath, ran it under cool water for a second and cracked it over my beautiful piece of buttered rosemary toast where it plopped out of the shell, perfectly intact and perfectly poached, wobbling gently as it settled. Velvety and buttery in the yolk and just slightly set in the white. SO delicious.

I'm hooked...can't wait to try out some steaks this weekend. And then...on to brisket. 72 hours? Should be a piece of cake

Sous Vide Made Accessible
I have wanted to try sous vide cooking for some time, but the idea of having to incorporate a large, bulky appliance into my kitchen didn't appeal to me. The Sansaire takes the space commitment out of the equation completely. It's slightly larger than my water bottle, and gets easily tucked away when not in use�keeping my counters clean and unobstructed.

The food it produces is amazing� My first attempt was a beef filet. So delicious and tender, it may be the best steak I've eaten at home! (I finished it with a pan-sear, BTW)

I've also used it to make wild boar ribs with an Asian rub, as well as one of the best soft cooked eggs I've ever had.

All in all, this tiny machine has changed the way I like to cook. I can't recommend it enough

A Compact Sous Vide Appliance
I wanted to cook sous vide in my motor home. It was obvious that my full-sized sous vide appliance would be too large. This smaller appliance does the job well, using pots that already were in the motor home. The sound is a a soft gurgle. The temperature regulation is good. Glamping is a perfect use of sous vide cooking. You can take a vacuum sealed steak right out of the freezer cook it for hours at 134 degrees. When ready to eat, you simply finish it off

Very Happy
I bought this a couple of months ago and can't tell you how much I like it. Previously, I used a crock pot and regulator, which required manually pre-heating the water or waiting forever. It also didn't hold higher temps (eg. 180F) well. The Sansaire preheats quickly and holds the temp well.
Congratulations to the folks that developed this product from Kickstarter campaign

A Sansaire Sous Vide Should Be in Every Kitchen
I have been using the Sansaire since it was first introduced and I LOVE it! We eat in more than ever and dinner is ready when our hectic schedules allow. The meat is so tender and juicy each time. I just can't say enough. Sansaire makes sous vide easy and the design is beautiful.

Love It
I've wanted a sous vide set up for a while. I researched the various machines and decided I wanted to go with the Sansaire. I received it about a week ago and have used it 3 times. It is well constructed and has a sturdy power cord. It runs very quietly (which was important to me) and it keeps the water within a tenth of a degree C of the setting. So far I've used in in a 6 quart stock pot and that worked fine for about 4 steaks or pork chops. But this weekend I will try short ribs and wanted a little more volume. So today I bought a 12 quart poly carb container. I like this larger size and will probably just use that in the future. When not in use, the Sansaire looks so pretty sitting on the counter without taking up too much space. I couldn't be happier and will recommend this unit to my friends

Simple to use-great results
I always wanted to a sous vide but cost and space was a deterrent. This solves both issues and it is very easy to use. I have cooked the perfect filet and strip steaks several times. I have also cooked fish with great results. I will eventually expand beyond beef and fish but the price alone is worth cooking the perfect steak. Especially with cost of a good cut of beef these days.

Not sure yet.
I have been invited to write a review, but I have only tried it so far with a rib steak, eggs, a corned beef brisket, and a salmon filet. With that caveat here are my comments:

The steak was cooked for about an hour at 123(f) then finished on a gas grill. The result was a very uniform appearing medium-rare. When it actually came to eating the steak however, I can't say it impressed me as being superior to a steak cooked entirely on the grill.

The brisket was cooked for 24 hours at 172, and came out tender-moist. I have read that longer times and lower temperatures will yield an almost fall apart finish. I was happy with the result I got, but again it was not obviously better than more conventional methods.

So far I have not been happy with my limited experience trying to achieve a soft cooked egg. I have tried various times and temperatures and end up with either whites too runny or yolks to hard. Some reading on the subject suggests that a two step method that sets the white and then a lower temperature to finish the yolk may produce a better result, but I haven't tried it yet.

The salmon, (if I remember) was cooked at 125(f) for an hour and then seared briefly on a very hot, lightly oiled pan. It was perfectly cooked, not over done (which is easy to do with fish) but not underdone.

The cooking times and temperatures are based on memory here, so they may be off, The ones actually used so far are based on the instructions sent with the Sansaire.

The Sansaire does what it says it will do. It seems to be will made, It is simple to use.

One thing that would have been helpful would have been a recipe book. A cooking guide is included, but it provides only some very basic information as to a few items.

Rated on the basis of performing as represented, I think a five would not be out of order. I don't know if this is fair or not, but I rated it a four instead, because I am not convinced that it produces better results than a competent cook can achieve using conventional methods. That said, it did make easy work of getting the Salmon just right. I am going to continue to experiment with it, and maybe over time I will become more enthusiastic .

Great Machine
I really like this method of cooking and now realize what goes on behind closed doors in restaurant kitchens! One word of caution do not put an bare egg in shell in water bath. I tried this and the egg broke and made a terrible mess to clean up. Keep it in a bag and you won't have this unfortunate experience! Other than that I am very pleased with the unit.

My new favorite kitchen tool
How can you cook a better than steakhouse quality steak (or chop or fish or so many other things) while watching TV?

The answer is sous vide, and the Sansaire sous vide circulator is an amazing tool for the job. Instead of trying to win a pulitzer with an online review, I'm just going to bullet point the pros and cons for you.

- Can heat a large tub of water to exactly the temperature you set. (In large polystyrene tubs for cooking things like brisket, you will need to cover the top with foil to minimize heat loss from evaporation.)
- Keeps incredibly accurate and steady temperature control
- Very strong and durable clip keeps the probe steady on any type of vessel.
- very quiet. They aren't kidding when they say whisper quiet on the website.
- very easy to use
- powerful heating element heats water very quickly. If you remember from chemistry class how the specific heat, you'll be impressed.

- Can't double as a blow torch
- Doesn't clean up the kitchen after cooking is done.
- Seriously, there aren't really any cons, but...
- Would prefer the screw on clip of the Anova, but the Sansaire has pros over the Anova, or so I've read.

PS... Don't listen to Richard, he was not properly informed about how to finish meats after a sous vide cook. He didn't realize that you can't get a crust on a steak or a chop by cooking it at low temp in a water bath. The Maillard reaction, which gives meats that beautiful, nutty flavored crust, only occurs at temperatures much higher than the highest temp water will reach in liquid form. So, to finish your meats:

1) Put a heavy bottomed skillet (I use cast iron) over med high to high heat, depending on how powerful you stove is. Add some canola, grapeseed, or peanut oil. Something with a high smoke point.
2) pull the meat out of the bag and reserve the cooking liquids in the bag for a delicious pan sauce if you are into that sort of thing.
2) thoroughly pat the meat dry with paper towels. This is important for two reasons: 1) the oil will splatter violently if there is moisture on the surface of the steak 2) More importantly, much of that heat energy needed to drive the Maillard reaction will be wasted vaporizing water (which requires a lot of energy), and the water will have to be vaporized before the maillard reaction can even begin. That means you will have overcooked your steak before you even started browning.
3) Place steak gently in skillet and throw in some aromatics to infuse the oil with flavor, add a pat of butter which has some sugars that will bond with the meat proteins in the Maillard reaction to help with browning even quicker.
4) Don't leave the steak in the skillet too long. Pull it after 1-2 minutes on each side or else the center temp will go higher than you were aiming for.

Let rest for a bit, though not as long as with traditional methods, and enjoy.

Best Chicken and Duck so far.
Wife learned about it Friday, did some research, order it Sunday, arrived on Tuesday and have used it at least once a day. Awesome flavor and ease of use.

I suggest changing the picture however, as it shows the product in bag partially above the water level which would not create an evenly cooked product.

Thank you for this product.

So far, excellent
I've been giving this quite a workout since I bought it and am pleased to report that it's handling 48- and 72-hour cook times (brisket) with no problem. More visible fill lines would be nice. The device is larger than it looks in the photo. Someone needs to sell a square container and rack system for it.

Disappointed in sous vide
I have had my Sansaire for a bit over a week now and to date and am very disappointed.
A steak cooked sous vide and browned on a cast iron skillet was very tender but at least for us was indistinguishable from tenderized meat. Had sort of a mushy feel.
Tonight was a salmon that was no better than if it had been steamed. In fact, poached in a bit of white wine would have been much better.
Green vegetables lose their color before they are cooked.
Sous vide squash was excellent.
At least at this point after having used the Sansaire daily for a week, I am very unimpressed.

Great device functionally, made from poor materials
So, works fine, great food, gets the job done and all that. 5 stars there. The polycarbonate is pretty terrible. So on Sur le Tab's page for this machine, "looks great on a countertop". Highly recommend storing this in the box it comes in when not in use. As the circulator was 'sitting on the countertop' seemingly out of the way, it was knocked over and the polycarbonate shattered as if it were made from glass. This was not a far fall.. it just fell over on to its side. Even had a fruitbasket to partially break its fall.

I've used three times. The first two were successful. I cooked hamburgers and steaks, then finished on hot cast iron pan. They were delicious and everyone complimented the texture and flavor. On third try, the machine overheated the water. While it was set for 140F, the temperature of water was 148-150F. Also it was swirling the water very fast and making screeching noise so loud. Maybe this was the factory defect...anyway it's packed and ready for return.

Still learning Sous-vide but WOW!
Since getting the Sansaire for Christmas we have had wonderful steaks - cooked to perfection from one edge to the other. Tender, delicious Salmon fillet - I used a soy sauce based marinade - great taste! And Scramble eggs with a texture like custard but still firm enough to eat with a fork. Looking forward to mastering thick pork chops next. And Chicken breasts are so juicy and tender --- have never had white meat that has been so, so tender and moist. Love the easy to use Sansaire. We use our spaghetti pan and it works great for everything.

This has revolutionized my kitchen. My husband has crohns and is on a very limited diet - mostly fish, chicken and vegetables. I've used this appliance for chicken and fish and all I can say is WOW!
These items have a whole new taste, and they are moist and easy to chew and digest. I've made pork loin for myself and must tell you I couldn't believe the taste - like butter - highly,
So easy to use and store. Five stars are not enough for the sansaire!

It's a Hit
I purchased this for my husband after listening to him wanting one for about two years. He was delighted when he opened it and immediately tried it with steaks. He tested with a lightly seasoned, highly seasoned and non seasoned steak. The seasoning really comes through, so I recommend lightly seasoning. He finished them on the grill. They were delicious. Second we tried pork chops, but found them to be bland and not tender. Third, we tried chicken, finished on the grill, and it was delicious, though a little under done. What a fun toy to play with! Definitely recommend.

Great Experience
Since I've had my Sous Vide I have experimented with a variety of proteins including, steak, chicken and eggs. While eight or 10 meals does not make me an expert, I have already learned a significant amount about the art of using this machine. It truly does make the best poached eggs I've ever had. The chicken is incredibly moist and tender, and steaks are the perfect temp all the way through. It's a dream if you're cooking for larger crowds because it gives you a built in cushion on your meat timing.

A few others have mentioned and I agree, it would have been helpful to have a cookbook included beside the "temp. card" which I have found to not always be the ideal temps and times. The more on-line research I do and tweak the settings, the more I love this product.

Very disappointed
I purchased the Sansaire sous vide from Sur la Table when there was a one day sale, with expectation of cooking perfectly finished meat. To date I have not had one sous vide steak or chop that would not have been infinitely superior grilled or broiled. Because there is moisture in all meat, in the end it simply tastes steamed with the meat having the texture of having been tenderized. Cooking meat to a rare temperature does provide a steak with a pink center, but it doesn't have the taste or texture of steamed meat. Along with the Sansaire we purchased a vacuum sealer which has become invaluable for storing food.
The Sansaire is now packed up and in the back of a closet.

What kind of bags do you need?

The pictures above show the use of standard locking bags; do you not need to vacuum seal them?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2014
Best Answer: For most things you would cook, not necessarily. I've used vacuum sealed bags (from a home sealer, not a restaurant quality one) and good quality zip locks at various times. I've seen no appreciable difference. But I wouldn't cheap out on the zip locks, to be safe. :)Unless you're cooking for a really long time, you don't necessarily need that vacuum seal. And honestly even with the items I've used my home sealer on some air was in the bag by the end of cooking

alternatives to plastic bags?

Are there alternative food containers that can be used instead of plastics? Regardless of the food grade, I would prefer not to cook my food in plastic
A shopper on Mar 28, 2014
Best Answer: You can cook some foods without plastic if you have a heat-transfer medium. There must be no gap between the water in the bath and the food, normally, so flexible plastic is essential; but you can get around this is some cases. For example, you can put pieces of fish in a glass canning jar full of oil, screw down the lid, and then lower the jar into the bath. The oil will conduct the heat from the water to the food.

I understand how this cooking process works, but what do you do when 3 people want medium rare steak and 1 wants medium well. I assume I would have to cook the one steak by itself and then the other three? Can you cook three filet mignons at a time?
Ryan on Sep 2, 2014
Best Answer: Start by cooking the single steak at the higher temperature. When it is finished, lower the temperature and ADD the other steaks. The medium well one is already done, and will be kept warm at the lower temperature. They will all finish at the same time. Just make sure you know which is which. This technique can also be used if you have multiple courses (I.e. Fish, poultry, beef) for a single meal, but it does take some advanced planning. P.s. I would bag all the medium rare steaks together. Less trouble.

Do, (or can) you season the food (ie. fish), before inserting in bag, and then putting in bath? If you can, what technique, if any, is the best way to do so
A shopper on Apr 28, 2014
Best Answer: The short answer is yes. The long answer is that herbs and aromatics are fine, but you need to be careful with salt.Since it's all sealed in a bag salting can create a brining environment. For shorter cook times it shouldn't affect things too much, but it's going to cause problems with a long cook.You can use marinades, too--just be careful with acidic ones (lots of citrus or vinegar) for similar reasons

When cooking more than one bag of food, does the bag floating on top that is not fully submerged fully cook like the ones underneath?
sharron h on Dec 8, 2014
Best Answer: I would say no. Bags should be "under vacuum" that is, no air inside, so they stay submerged. If cooking something that refuses to sink down, then weight it down. For this process to be effective the food needs to be fully submerged to be evenly exposed to heat. If floating on top of water, one side is not being heated at the same rate. I'm a chef, not a scientist, but if you check out Modernist Cuisine, you will find out some additional insights on sous vide if you are interested.

Really a general sous vide question, not a product question. My sous vide meat always seems to end up a smidge overdone, after I've put a sear on it. I've tried a lower sous vide temp, but that's not doing it. Should I be A. Letting it rest before searing? B. Ice bathing it before searing. C. Searing it before putting it in the sous vide. D. Somehow searing for a shorter time on a hotter surface (tho I'm already cranking the pan to max. E. Sous viding to en even lower temp. Other ideas? I'm frustrated that I'm still not producing the true sous vide effect... Thanks for the help!

Best Answer: It sounds like you could be letting it cook in the pan too long. When you remove your meat from the bag, pat it dry and put it in a dry, screaming hot pan (like cast iron). You mention you have the pan on max, maybe you need to give it a few extra minutes empty to really heat up. I have a sear burner on my grill that works amazing, but even that use on the highest setting and do not cover (you don't want to trap the heat to further the cooking).

Are there any problems using it at 7,000 feet altitude?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2015
Best Answer: I don't think there should be. Altitude affects cooking by changing water's boiling point, but this device is designed to cook food well below boiling temperatures. So the food should cook identically regardless of altitude.

This looks like a great appliance. Does Sansaire plan on coming out with a vacuum sealer for liquids, meats with marinades etc?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2014
Best Answer: At this time, I'm not aware of any plans for additional products, but this is a fairly new product, so I'm sure it's a possibility in the future.

How do yo keep the food off the bottom of the pot, so as not to create a cold spot
cheapersolution on Jun 13, 2014
Best Answer: Clipping the top of the bag to the side of the pot works pretty well. I use standard black office clips--they're strong and they don't take up a ton of space. The best solution would be a simple rack that elevates the bottom of the bag from the base of the pot--like a canning rack--but clips should work unless you're cooking really large batches. Just make sure you pad them if you have nice pots--nobody likes scratches on their All-Clad.

Cooking vegetables

How much time, and at what temperature do you need to cook vegetables
A shopper on Apr 16, 2014
Best Answer: Vegetable cooking temperature and time varies with the type of vegetable (and the texture preferences of the cook!). That said, most veggies are at the higher end of the temperature range--180 or so, with root vegetables generally taking around 2 to 4 hours and more tender fare (asparagus, for example) cooking in around 30 minutes. I'd recommend being a little more vigilant about taking them out promptly after cooking, too--vegetables tend to get a bit mushy if you leave them in the bath too long. A few minutes extra isn't going to make a difference, but if you leave that asparagus in for four hours you're going to have a pretty unappetizing mess

How long can meat stay in sous vide once it reaches desired temp.?
Teresa P on Mar 8, 2015
Best Answer: I would say zero to several hours. It will hold at your ending temp but over time you may experience some texture changes and possibly some color changes if you added something like fresh herbs.. I'm still new to sous.vide but am a very experienced cook so every thing is a learning opportunity. I've used a book by Jason Logsdon called Modernist Cooking Made Easy: Sous Vide. Very helpful. Oh, and don't forget to build in searing/browning time using a high temp source such as a gas bbq or propane torch (great one at Home Depot.)

How do the items get browned and not that pale boiled look?
Donna A on Mar 7, 2015
Best Answer: Items that need to be browned require an extra step. They can be browned using any traditional heat method (i.e. broiler, grill, skillet) or even with a propane or butane torch. They can even be browned before being placed in a vacuum bag and cooked Sous Vide.

won't turn on?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2015
Best Answer: Hmm...we've never had this problem. The power button is a circle with a line through it, right in the middle of the top of the machine. I guess I would suggest that you check your outlet, and hit the reset button on it. Hope this helps - the machine is amazing. We use it all the time.

I want to boil grains at a precisely controlled temperature- could I do it with this?
Sherry H on Mar 22, 2015
Best Answer: The boiling point of water is the boiling point of water, there is natural temperature control through the laws of physics there. If you are asking if you can cook grains below boiling, like say 195 degrees, then yes but I would recommend covering the pot with foil to help the Sansaire out by reducing heat loss through vaporization.

What size pot or container do I need?
Laureen S on Jan 30, 2015
Best Answer: Don't worry about not being able to maintain temperature with 6 gallons of water, Scott; it works just fine, even in a non-insulated container. (Insulated will save energy, though.) Because of the greater thermal mass, large volumes of water hold temperatures quite even, and the Sansaire only needs to supply enough heating capacity to keep it at that temperature. If you use an insulated tank, like a beer cooler, you could even go over 6 gallons, but Sansaire's literature errs on the conservative side.

Do you add smoke flavor or charcoal flavor to steak before sous vide?
John M on Apr 6, 2015
Best Answer: I sear steaks on the charcoal grill after sous vide. It is possible to sear beforehand, but meat needs that browning you get on the grill or hot skillet to really taste right.

Frozen food

Can I start something frozen from the freezer and let it cook ? For example, a frozen steak
A shopper on Mar 20, 2014
Best Answer: Yes. I've actually done this before, both with the Sansaire and with my previous sous vide appliance. There are a few notes you should consider:If you're getting vacuum sealed frozen meats you'll be cooking them with no seasoning, unless they are sealed pre-seasoned.If they are bought frozen and pre-seasoned they may come out salty so you'll need to experiment. Many of the marinades in store-bought marinated items are salty as they expect you to rinse and pat dry before cooking. The only way to find out is to try it, since it will vary by product.It will take a bit longer to come to temperature (obviously - it's a hunk of ice) so make sure your timing accounts for that, or you don't start timing until you see it at or near the target temp.You can also (and I've done this with both chicken and steak) sous vide several items at once, seasoned and sealed, then freeze them. Then during the week when you're busy all you need to do is thaw and sear. I'll do this when I come back from the farmers market with fresh meats and seafoods for the week. I'll fire up the sous vide and cook them off (separated out by like temperature) to use later. This also works with sous vide eggs in the shell. I'll sous vide lots at the same time, cool them and keep them in the fridge. Then during the busy week I'll just boil water on the stove, turn off the heat and drop the eggs in to warm through while I make toast
