ABOUT THIS ITEM
Restaurant Quality At Home
Sous vide is a cooking method in which food is wrapped in plastic, placed in water, and then gently and slowly cooked at a consistent and precise temperature. Protected from the extreme heat of an oven or stove, sous vide cooking results in beef, pork, chicken and fish dishes that are impossibly tender and bursting with flavor. The water is continuously circulated to ensure that there are no temperature variations, resulting in even cooking end to end. With the Chefman Precision Cooker, it's easier than ever to prepare dishes that are never undercooked or overcooked, but simply the best you've ever had!
The Sous Vide Advantage
Edge To Edge Perfection - Because of the precision with which the temperature is controlled, food prepared using sous vide is cooked more evenly, retains more of its volume, and has a better texture than food prepared using conventional cooking methods.
Flavour Packed - With sous vide, food cell walls do not burst, so less of the moisture, juices and fats are lost in the cooking process. This allows food to maintain its inherent flavoring, for new food experiences that are nearly impossible to achieve through traditional cooking methods.
Thoroughly Nutritious - With most cooking methods, large parts of the food are lost to heat, and much of the nutrients are destroyed during the cooking process. With sous vide, more of the original components of the dish remain intact, and more nutrients are saved.
Ease Of Use - Sous vide is truly the closest we have gotten to fool-proof cooking. Because the water is precisely heated to the exact cooking temperature, circulated throughout the cooking process, and cooled as soon as cooking is completed, there is no chance for overcooking or undercooking your food. The Chefman App and Club Chefman make this already simple product ever easier to use.
Energy Efficiency - Most foods have an ideal cooking temperature far lower than the lowest temperature of an average oven or stove. The Chefman Precision Cooker uses that ideal lower temperature, which reduces energy consumption considerably.
Safety - Sous vide involves no flame or boiling water, making the cooking environment far safer than traditional cooking methods. It is also designed to bring food to the exact internal temperature to remove bacteria, while still maintaining all the valuable nutrients, a perfect middle-ground that is almost unheard of with more traditional cooking methods.

Tips & Hints
Finish with A Sear - We recommend giving your meat, chicken or fish a quick sear on the stovetop or in the broiler, for a crisp finish.
Cleaning & Storage - Clean the LED display by wetting a microfiber cloth and rubbing off any debris. Clean the heating coil and shaft with a mild dish soap and rinse. The Chefman Precision Cooker can be kept wherever appliances are stored. Any kitchen drawer or cabinet will work.
Vessels - You do not need a special container to cook with the Chefman Precision Cooker. Any receptacle that can hold a minimum of 2 inches (50 mm) of water and can handle the weight of the immersion cooker will work. Sous vide can work in a pot, pan, large salad bowl or cooler.
Plastic - Sous vide requires food to be wrapped in plastic. Popular options include vacuum packing, but any high quality re-sealable plastic bag works too!
Food Safety - Studies and testing over the last several decades indicate that sous vide cooking in high quality plastic or vacuum packs is perfectly safe. Keep in mind, sous vide involves cooking at low temperatures, lower than the melting point.
How Many Pieces Per Pot - The number of pieces of food inside your pot will not change the temperature or cooking time. Make sure that foods are packed separately or with room between pieces in each bag. There should also be enough room in the pot for water to circulate around each bag.
Countertop Safety - We recommend that you protect your countertops by placing a trivet under your vessel while cooking with the Chefman Precision Cooker.
