Oliso Smart Hub Sous Vide Cooking System Review

Oliso Smart Hub Sous Vide Oven

The Oliso Smart Hub is more than just a sous vide water oven, it is actually a compact three piece sous vide cooking system that includes a:

  • sous vide Cooker
  • induction burner
  • grilling surface


This amazing three piece sous vide cooking cooking system fits into just one square foot of counter space.

This will allow you to maximize your cooking potential, even in a small cooking space like an apartment, RV or home with a small kitchen that is counter space challenged.



What is Sous Vide Cooking anyway?


Sous vide cooking  (pronounced soo-veed), which translates to under pressure, is a French cooking method developed in the 1970’s where food is first placed in a vacuum bag and sealed to remove all the air, then it is cooked slowly at a precise temperature controlled water bath of approximately 140 degrees Fahrenheit for several hours, depending on the recipe.

Many professional chefs claim sous vide cooking is a full proof cooking method that a novice home cook up to a professional chef can master, that produces a perfectly cooked meal every time.

Regardless if you cook the food for 5 hours or 15 hours, due to the precise temperature control of sous vide, you can’t over cook the food.


Oliso Sous Vide Cooker

The Oliso Smart Hub Sous Vide Cooking System includes:


  • sous vide cooker
  • water oven insert
  • 1500 W induction burner
  • grilling surface


The sous vide cooking system is designed with small kitchens in mind, that lack large counter space to fit several large bulky kitchen appliances.

With the Oliso induction burner that produces up to 1500 Watts of power, there is no heat generated until another induction ready appliance with a magnetic induction bottom, such as the Oliso Smart Top, or induction cookware is placed on the induction burner.

Then you can cook food in a full size 8″-12″ skillet with the same radiant heat as a full size cook top range.

A regular pot or skillet that is not induction ready cannot be used on the Oliso SmartHub burner.


The Oliso Smart Hub is a Complete Closed Sous Vide Cooking System


The key to sous vide cooking is precise temperature control.  The Oliso sous vide water oven maintains the water temperature you set, whether it is for 2 hours or 24 hours.

The cooking system factors in internal and external issues to maintain the precise water temperature, to cook your food perfectly, and prevents over cooking no matter the length of time the food is in the water bath.


The video shows just how the Oliso Smart Hub works.


The cooking heat comes from the induction burner, that is  plugged into any standard 120 Volt outlet.  When the cooking pot is placed on the induction burner, the magnetic coils come together and the heating process begins.

Cooking ends as soon as the pot is removed from the burner.  The Oliso induction burner is safe to touch at this point, and even a curious child can’t get burned when they touch the induction burner when not heating.

Induction cooking is popular in Europe, and is becoming poplar in US homes that are striving for energy efficiency.

How Oliso Sous Vide Cooking Compares to Other Cooking Methods.







You Will Need a Vacuum Sealer


To use the Oliso sous vide cooking system, you will need a vacuum sealer.  We were a bit disappointed that Oliso does not include the vacuum sealer as part of a bundle option on their website, as some of their competitors do.


Oliso does offer a SmartHub and Vacuum Sealer Bundle on Amazon.com for just $100 more.  This is a $50 savings compared to buying the SmartHub and Oliso Vacuum Sealer separately.
