Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide Water Oven & Slow Cooker Review
The Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide Water Oven & Slow cooker is definitely one of the more multifunctional Sous Vide machines on the market and it will offer you the opportunity to buy two essential home appliances for the price of one.
The slow cooker feature is really interesting and these are actually really expensive on their own.
The slow cooker has always been known for creating the perfect lamb dishes that will simply fall off the bone when you try to cut it, but with the Sous Vide combination, everything will now fall off the bone when you eat it with all of the flavor locked inside.
The Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide Water Oven comes with a 1000 watt power supply that will ensure that food is cooked evenly and since you have the control of the timer on the LCD screen, you will be able to ensure that food is never overcooked and even your veggies still have that crunchy texture to it.
Features of the Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide Water Oven & Slow Cooker
The biggest advantage provided by this machine is the fact that it can be converted into a slow cooker and will save you a lot of money there.
A little less than 6 liters of water can be added to the machine and even though this might not seem like a lot, it will be perfect for students and bachelors living on their own and not trying to cook too much food at once.
The added bags will lock in the flavor when it is used as a Sous Vide machine and you will only need to add the spices and the marinade to ensure that it is flavorful. With no evaporation touching the food, there will be no watery taste for you to worry about and the meals are sure to be perfect every time.
The 1000 watt power supply will allow you to cook food faster and within one day, but will also keep the food at the ideal temperature that you have set for up to 48 hours, meaning that you can continue doing everything that you normally do throughout the day and the machine will just continue cooking.
Once the food has been cooked, the machine does not shut off and it will continue to use as little power as possible to keep the food warm until you arrive home and manually switch it off.
Benefits of the Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide Water Oven & Slow Cooker
Time-saving is one of the main purposes of investing in this machine and you will be able to avoid having to continually stare at the food as it cooks and ensure that it doesn’t dry out.
This machine will allow you to cook specialty dishes for the winter months as well and this can simply be done during the evening without having to get up and look every now and again.
Another method of time-saving provided by this machine is the fact that you need not warm up the food upon arriving at home and everything will be kept at the desired temperature.
This will not only save you time but also a little on the electricity bill as microwaves do eat up electricity and might not warm up the food evenly.
Finally, the machine is easy to clean when you use the Sous Vide cooking method, but to counter the dirt caused by the slow cooker, the stainless steel on the inside of the cooker has also been fitted with a non-stick layer, thus allowing you to soak it in hot water and simply wipe the machine clean after every use. The stainless steel will protect the machine from rust as well.
