Yum.

      WHY SOUS VIDE?

Make your own Limoncello in hours rather than weeks or months! No need to buy flavored syrups or fruity drinks. Simply create your own flavor combinations and mix into ice tea, lemonade or club soda for non-alcoholic beverages with a bright fresh gourmet twist!

      WHY SOUS VIDE?

      Suggested recipes: Chicken StockBeef Stock

    5. CHEESECAKE, BREAD PUDDING, STEAMED PUDDING, POT DE CRÈME, OR CRÈME BRÛLÉE

      WHY SOUS VIDE?

      An unstirred sous vide bath is a perfect bain marie for cooking those oven recipes requiring a water cushion and constant low temperatures. Eliminates the challenge (and danger) of sloshing hot water onto the floor when filling or removing a pan from a traditional oven.

    6. THE PERFECT EGG

Simply place the whole eggs in the water bath to cook and you will be treated to perfectly soft poached eggs, exactly the way you like them! Cook 1 or many eggs at once and keep them perfectly soft-cooked until serving. Easy for making hard-cooked eggs, too.

      Suggested recipes: Dulce de Leche (caramel sauce) is as easy as pouring sweetened condensed milk into a zip cooking pouch and cooking it unattended all day or even overnight while you sleep for an easy sweet treat ready whenever you are. Also try Chocolate ZabaglioneVanilla Bean Ice Cream 

    8. OVERNIGHT OATMEAL

      Love a bowl of hot oatmeal for breakfast, but no time to cook it on the stove in the morning?  Simply drop it in the night beforehand and it will cook overnight and be ready to eat in the morning. Easier than stovetop and no clean up!

      Suggested recipes: Oatmeal with Stewed Fruit Compote 

    9. PICKLED VEGETABLES
