What is Sous Vide Cooking

Sous Vide cooking (pronounced soo veed) is a french cooking method made popular in 1974 by Georges Pralus.  The word is adapted from Greek meaning “Under Pressure.”  This is referring to the food being vacuum sealed before cooking.

This French cooking method works by circulating heated water in a pot, which cooks food to the exact set temperature for the recipe every time.

The food is first placed in a vacuum sealed pouch.  You place the sous vide cooker in the pot of water. Simply set the desired temperature for your food, based on cooking guide.  The pouch is placed in temperature controlled water bath and cooked at a precise low temperature for several hours.

With other methods, the food must be removed from the heat source to prevent burning or over cooking. Once the cooking cycle is done, the water bath cycles the heat on and off.  This keep the food hot, cooked to perfection and maintains at the desired temperature without being overcooked or burned.

Perfect Cooking Every Time

How Anova Sous Vide Cooker Works

With the Sous Vide Cooker from Anova, you can prepare the food ahead of time and turn it on from your phone while you are away from home.

The benefit of sous vide cooking is that the food will cook perfectly every time.  Once the cooking time is complete,  the cooker cycles the heat on and off to maintain the desired water temperature for the dish.

Since the food is sealed in the bag and does not touch the water, sous vide cooking allows you to maintain the food temperature for hours without the food being burned or overcooked.
