Tribest Sousvant SV-101 Complete Sous Vide Circulator Review
The Tribest Sousvant SV-101 Complete Sous Vide Circulator is different from most other sous vide machines and it does not work with an element like most of the other static machines. Yes, the water will still become hot, but a 1000 watt circulator is used to get the water hot.
The circulator is very energy efficient and once it has achieved the desired temperature, it will use much less power to keep the temperature and save you electricity.
This circulator is a little on the expensive side, but it is one of the top sous vide machines on the market.
As with many circulators, the Tribest Sousvant SV-101 Complete Sous Vide Circulator is fairly quiet and will not bother anyone in the house, and it is super slick looking so it gets points for aesthetics.
The most impressive feature on this sous vide machine is the 1000 watt circulator that will power up the machine as well as keep your food warm, but the fact that the removable carafe can be looked through makes it even better and will allow you to see and monitor the progress of the food.
Now there will be no more hot water splashing around causing a safety issue when you try and see how far along the food is.
The machine will maintain the temperature really well and will not deviate past 0.1 degree Celsius from the ideal temperature, this means that even when you are not home for a while, the food will still be able to cook through thoroughly and taste wonderful with all of the flavor locked inside the vacuum seal bags.
The machine is capable of carrying 11.4 liters and filling it up is really easy as you will not need to move the entire machine. The carafe can simply be removed and filled up with water after which you can simply add the vacuum sealed packs of food to ensure that you have everything cooks at the same time.
The see through carafe is portable and will allow you to monitor the progress of your food.
If you add marinade to the bag, the food will absorb all of the flavors and since it has been vacuum or Ziploc sealed, there is nowhere for the flavor to escape to – the beauty of sous vide cooking!
The 1000 watt circulator will speed up the cooking process a little for people looking to cook one meal every day and you will be able to cook with the machine when you are not home as well. It is not recommended that you do not tend to the machine at least once a day, as there is no timer that will automatically shut it off.
Finally, the machine is stylishly designed and quite small, thus making the storage much easier. Your machine will always look clean and after cooking, a simple cloth will wipe away any excess condensation.
The biggest con is probably the fact that there is no timer on the machine and you will not be able to leave the machine unattended for more than a couple of hours. You will still be able to cook for longer, but we recommend that you at least check on the machine regularly
Browning the food will require you to cook them in oil or sauce separately.
The machine is on the more expensive side, but when you look at it as an investment in a healthier lifestyle, I have to say it’s worth the expense.
The Tribest Sousvant SV-101 Complete Sous Vide Circulator will ensure that you have a quality meal every time.
