Sous vide it yourself

Australian T3 - - TECH LIFE -

1/ Vac­uum seal your meat and veg – fill your sink with wa­ter and slowly sub­merge the food in a zip-lock freezer bag, push­ing ab­so­lutely all of the air out, then zip it up. Al­ter­na­tively, you can pick up a proper vac­uum sealer like the Au­to­mated Food Saver ($ 249, the­goodguys.com.au). 2/ Buy yourself a rice cooker – some­thing like the Kam­brook Rice Cooker ($ 20, har­veynor­man. com.au) is con­sid­er­ably cheaper than a ded­i­cated

sous vide ma­chine. Fill it with wa­ter, heat it up and use the “keep warm” func­tion to reg­u­late the tem­per­a­ture, then drop in your sealed food par­cel. 3/ Get out of food jail free – if you’re strug­gling with the DIY ap­proach, splash the cash on the Sous­Vide Supreme Wa­ter Oven ( US$429, sous­videsupreme.com) to get the food out on time.

With­out all that costly equip­ment
