phenomenon that goes with your (busy) flow.
Choose from the following Vesta sous vide cooking options:
How they work:
Heat the water to your desired temperature by using the controls on your machine and drop your food into the Perfecta water-bath, or into your pot with the Imersa or Imersa Elite immersion circulator attached. The appliances use electricity to maintain the water temperature to a precise degree and gently cook your food to perfection - it’s entirely hands off, to free up more time for you. Each product comes with a user manual, cooking guide, and has quick start instructions to ensure ease of use.
To determine the desired temperature for your food, you can reference any of the tools that we provide or do your research on the internet. With each of our sous vide cooking tools you will receive a set of cards that provide you with suggested water temperatures and times for beef, pork, poultry, fish & seafood, eggs, vegetables and fruit. Additionally you can reference the Vesta App or visit our recipes page.
Choose from the following Vesta vacuum sealing options:
How they work:
Vacuum sealers extend food freshness 3 to 5 times longer than traditional storage methods. They are typically used for freezing and storage of foods and non-perishable goods, but can also be used for sous vide cooking. Simply season and vacuum-seal your food, store in the freezer or refrigerator, or cook immediately. From shrimp to steak and veggies to fruits, you can cook and store almost anything once vacuum sealed. Check out our sous vide meal plan for ideas.
Don’t forget the vacuum seal pouches and rolls
Don’t worry, just because you have options doesn’t mean you need to be overwhelmed. Here is a quick rundown to help you select the correct pouch or roll for your needs:
Liquid block: Includes an absorbent paper that prevents liquids from leaking – available in gallon and quart sizes
Standard pouches: Will work with most external clamp vacuum machines – available in gallon and quart sizes
Pouches with zippers: Do not require a vacuum sealer – available in gallon and quart sizes
Pouches with zipper and valve: Require a handheld pump for sealing – available in gallon and quart sizes
