Sous Vide cooking method has been very popular in the best restaurants for quite some time and entered the residential kitchens to be used by those gourmets that appreciate better meals. And this is not only in the form of sous vide cookers that you may be familiar with, but also the practical and compact immersion pods that turn any large pot into functional sous vide cookers, as there is often not a lot of space in most kitchens. Sous-vide method basically uses a heated water bath to cook ingredients slowly in sealed bags at precise low temperatures, maintaining all the juices and flavors. It comes with a user guide and a cookbook with 100 recipes that will give you ideas on making a variety of meals and cooking temperatures and times. The temperature setting is very accurate to .1 degree, the hot water bath is heated evenly with the circulator and the food will be cooked uniformly.
The sous vide immersion pod attaches to the side of your pot with the adjustable clamp in an upright position and you can control the temperatures easily through the anti-reflective LCD touch display and the “Set” button (the only other button is On/Off). You will get moist, soft and tasty meals- meat, veggies, eggs, desserts and a variety of other ingredients cooked to perfection, despite being such a simple method.

You may be familiar with the GV140 model we reviewed previously and the first thing that we can point out between the two is the GSV150 includes the WiFi and app functionality. Everything on the pod is heat safe and will not melt even at much higher temperatures. The way you use the app on your smartphone is, you put the ingredients in sealed bag into the water and attach the pod onto the side of the pot and start it from your phone when you’re out and about and as an ETL and UL listed product, it is very safe to use so you can have a peace of mind.
