The Sous Vide cooking method has recently taken the restaurant industry by storm – and is even becoming popular among home kitchens. So, what exactly is Sous Vide cooking?
Sous Vide is a method of slow cooking in which food is cooked in vacuum sealed bags, submerged in a constant temperature-controlled water bath. This technique of cooking the food inside vacuum sealed bags ensures the food will stay juicy and tender.
The temperature controlled method of this style of cooking is another unique feature providing a tasty outcome for chefs and diners, as the food cooks at the constant desired temperature all the way through. This temperature is achievable and monitored with the help of Comark’s Sous Vide Kit.
This method of cooking has become so popular among restaurants, chefs and home kitchens because different temperatures of the water baths (by even just one or two degrees) can provide a different outcome. In addition, this method is convenient because the temperature stays constant, without the need to continuously take a measurement throughout the cooking process.
When the temperature of the food is taken, Comark’s FDA approved Foam Tape provides a seal when removing the probe so contents from inside the bag do not leak out. This also keeps the food’s nutrients intact, as well as prevents water from leaking into the bag.
After the food reaches its desired temperature – which can take up to one or even two days – many choose to then season and cook the food on a skillet or grill to crisp up the outer layer.
Comark’s Sous Vide Kit enhances the cooking experience, while giving accurate and reliable temperature readings ensuring food safety.
The Sous Vide Kit includes the C28 Type K Thermocouple Food Thermometer with an easy-to-use keypad and large LCD display; a PK15M MicroTip Penetration Probe with BioCote Antimicrobial Protection; and a roll of Sous Vide Foam Tape.
