What’s in Box?

  • SousVide Supreme / Demi water oven
  • Stainless steel pouch rack
  • Detachable power cord
  • Instructional DVD
  • User manual

A power cord is detachable so you can carry only the main body to the sink to fill with water or empty and bring back to the counter.

A tight-fitting lid is completely removed from the main body. The water bath capacity of each unit is 3 gallons (the original) and 2.3 gallons (Demi). The maximum temperature is 210 degrees F. Double wall insulation makes it energy efficient, and the exterior is cool to touch. Thanks to a perforated grill on the bottom, foods don’t touch a heated surface directly. The perforated grill lets heat through. Both models rely on convection to circulate water. So, there is no motor. It allows it operate silently and makes it more energy-efficient.

    • There is no draining plug or anything like that. Simply take it to the sink and dump water from the top.
      You don’t have to empty it every time you cook. But you should use proper sealing bags for sous vide cooking.
      If you don’t use the cooker for a long time, it’s recommended to empty and dry interior.
