With the NeoVide, how does the sous vide work without water or vacuum bags?

Instead of using water as a medium for heat transfer, Neovide heats the food directly through the inner tray and thermal radiation. It combines built-in temperature sensors, algorithms, and a food probe to achieve truly precise temperature control. In Sous Vide mode or Marinate mode, the vacuum function is activated and the chamber is under vacuum. It is as if your food is cooked in a vacuum bag, but with better results – the marination is enhanced, the nutrients are preserved, and the food shape is kept.
