It used to be that you need to spend quite a hefty amount if you want to partake in sous vide cooking. The bulk of the expense is the cost of an immersion water heater and circulator that is required to heat and maintain the cooking temperature that sous vide cooking requires. In the past year, a few sous vide heating water circulators that are targeted at home cooks have been released on the market and one of them is the Sansaire Sous Vide Immersion Circulator.
Like the Anova and Nomiku circulators, the Sansaire has a similar long cylinder form factor that incorporates both a water heater and a circulation pump. To use, all you have to do is to place the Sansaire into a pot or a heat resistant container and set the desired temperature. The controls within the Sansaire will heat the water to the set temperature and hold it with an accuracy of 0.1°C. Finally, place your vacuum packed food into the bath and wait for it to cook.
The Sansaire’s controls are reminiscent of something that Apple would come out with. They are simple yet intuitive. The interface consists of just a power button flanked by a target temperature button and a °C/°F toggle button. There is a rotating dial for setting the temperature right under the control panel. Last but not least, the current temperature is displayed in large glowing numbers which can be easily seen from across the room.
Another selling point of the Sansaire is that it has a high powered 1000 W water heater that can quickly bring the water temperature to the set temperature.
The Sansaire is the product of a highly successful Kickstarter campaign which reached its targeted funding goal within a mere 13 hours of being launched.
