phenomenon that goes with your (busy) flow.

Choose from the following Vesta sous vide cooking options:

The Perfecta is an all in one water-bath that is stored on the countertop for ultimate convenience.

The Imersa has a modern design, intuitive digital display and can be used with any pot.

Imersa Elite
Imersa Elite
This “Flip-design’ circulator has a large digital display, and fits neatly into most kitchen drawers.

This choice is strictly a personal preference. Each model provides consistent results, is Wi-Fi-enabled and syncs to the Vesta App with ease-of-use. Often, storage, when not in use can become a key factor in deciding which model is best.

How they work:

Heat the water to your desired temperature by using the controls on your sous vide cooking appliance and drop your food into the Perfecta water-bath, or into your pot with the Imersa or Imersa Elite immersion circulator attached. The sous vide cooking appliances and equipment 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 sous vide cooking appliance, vacuum sealer and piece of equipment 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 appliances and equipment 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.

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.
