Gourmia GSV130 Immersion Sous Vide Pod via Amazon
Gourmia GSV130 is a compact digital sous vide pod immersion circulator with a powerful 1200 watt motor, designed to help you make great tasting, tender and unique gourmet meals in the comfort of your home, that is simple to use and quite affordable. It is a nice alternative to the self-contained sous vide ovens as can be easily clipped to any 3.5 gallon size pot, is offered in black, white and bronze colours and some of you would be familiar with Gourmia as the company creates great innovative products at very affordable prices and you will find many positive reviews online on their different products online. It is not just for making juicy medium rare steak and fish with perfect texture and flavour but for a variety of meals- of different meats- fish, chicken, turkey, beef (and the way it cooks and pasteurises you’ll be OK with slightly uncooked looking chicken or pork), fresh vegetables, the best tasting eggs and even desserts. And the fact that those Sous Vide gourmet units can be quite expensive and a little hard to use makes this model a very reasonable and more simple choice for those wanting to create better tasting restaurant quality meals with the ACT (Active Control Thermostat) technology to cook evenly throughout at very precise temperatures with only + and – 0.1 degree level of accuracy, giving you total control and the water will be circulated throughout the cooking process.
Gourmia GSV130 is a powerful sous vide circulator that manages to run quietly (all it does is very little noise when heating up) to generate great results full of beautiful penetrating flavour and taste and buttery, soft and moist texture. It is built solid and durable, has a modern, attractive and sleek design, weighs 2.3 pounds so it is easy to handle and measures 4 x 5 x 14.5 inches so is quite compact as compared to those high end sous vide circulators and good for travel, easy to clean and use. It has quite a nice and large LCD display that shows the temperature in Celcius and Fahrenheit. Just like with other sous vide devices you need to vacuum seal your ingredients- eggs, meat, veggies so the heat goes in without the ingredients getting soaked, then put them into the water in the pot, let it cook and it will be done just right and never overcook, they will be uniformly cooked with equal flavour and texture inside and out and despite being a low cost unit. You’ll see a low and high water level mark, as long as you keep it between those levels you will be fine with different pot sizes and if the bath is larger you can control it easier. But there is no timer or delay functions as this is not an expensive high end unit but for most everyday home cooks they really don’t need to spend more, this one does the job with its high wattage motor that gets to the right temperature quickly and even beeps. It is very easy to use and comes with a decent instructions manual, a couple of clicks and a dial is all you need to do and know.
