SOUSVIDE SUPREME COMPARED WITH IMMERSION CIRCULATORS
There are water bath style sous vide cookers as well as immersion circulators. We will explain the differences between these two types of sous vide appliances including the features to look out for to help you choose the right one for your needs.
Sous Vide Water Baths
Not all water bath style sous vide machines are created equal and it is important to understand what features to look for to ensure you are purchasing an appliance that is safe, reliable and easy to use.
Immersion circulators can also be used for sous vide cooking. They must actively stir the water to achieve even heating, whereas the patented design and precision temperature control technology of SousVide Supreme's water oven ensures even temperatures throughout the bath without the need for a circulator motor.
How Does SousVide Supreme Work Without a Circulator?
In the SousVide Supreme, the heated water rises from the edge-to- edge heating plate in the base creating a highly efficient thermal convection that maintains consistent temperatures throughout the water bath without the need for agitation.
The SousVide Supreme water oven also offers additional features such as silent operation and lid to contain steam.
