Sansaire: The $199 Home Sous Vide Device

August 7, 2013

A few years ago, our friend Scott Heimendinger of Seattle Food Geek created a $75 DIY sous vide machine and posted the instructions on his blog. It was difficult to make, but over 1,000 people did it! That's how much us home cooks want to sous vide in our own kitchens. In recent years, a few companies have marketed sous vide cooking devices, but the market is missing a good-looking, affordable, high-quality circulator for use at home. Today, Scott and his team launched a Kickstarter for the Sansaire sous vide circulator.

Sansaire is only $199 and super easy to use! Just turn the ring to set the temperature. Sansaire uses a very accurate thermometer and a micro controller to maintain the correct temperature within a fraction of a degree. The Sansaire also circulates the water to even out hot and cold spots. The motor circulates water in up to a six gallon bath, but it is so quiet you can barely hear it running. When you're ready to eat, just remove your food from the water bath. If you'd like, finish it off with a quick sear. They're ready to start full-scale production, but they can't do it without our help. Please share the video below and help back them on Kickstarter here so that sous vide lovers can have this amazing product in their kitchens.
