UK-based supplier Sous Vide Tools has rolled out app-controlled technology to guarantee temperature stability and make sous vide easier to use.
The company has introduced a Bluetooth enabled thermal circulator that clips on to any pot (up to 80 litres) which can be controlled from anywhere.
The iVide Thermal Circulator guarantees a temperature stability of 0.03°C between 40°C and 100°C on all suitable cooking vessels with a minimum depth of 16.5cm, and 2kw heating element.
The water resistant, high-resolution five-inch touch screen unit is designed to be clamped to the side of the chosen stainless steel or polycarbonate pot. A circulating pump ensures no hot or cold spots.
The Bluetooth technology allows the circulator can be controlled via an app, an initiative that the company claims will make sous-vide cooking more accessible.
The app-based device includes safety features such as low water level protection device. If the unit is accidentally turned on when empty, or if the water level drops below the minimum required, the circulator will shut off and notify the user.
An energy saving mode reduces energy consumption to just 20 watts in cook and hold mode without any loss of temperature control.
