    Chefman Sous Vide Cooker

    Just wondering if anyone has one of these. Been reading up a bit on sous vide, not sure how much I would use it. Neighbor raves about his, so I googled it yesterday and came across this one at a liquidation place for $40 ca. Taxes and shipping in $64 ca, about $50 us. I rarely purchase on price, but I thought, what the heck. Supposed to arrive tomorrow. No warranty, but I've thrown away 50 bucks before

    I have nearly that exact model (mine is a few years old so it may not be identical). I bought it on some discount website for maybe $60-70. It has performed remarkably well - it keeps temp within a half a degree, measured with my Thermapen.
    It has no bells and whistles, but I didn't expect any at that price. It can be a little noisy if the water levels aren't right in the middle but that's easy to look past.
    It's a definite buy, especially if you don't already have a better one.

      That’s the same Hunk o Junk I have.

      works great! Doesn’t seem very well built but it works perfectly.

      Never had an any issues with this one. the first arrived damaged and was replaced immediately.

      So far a solid purchase. Bought like 3 or 4 years ago. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

        My recollection is you said sous vide was for wimps and you gave it up like 3 or 4 years ago. But I also forgot to take my Alzheimer pills this morning so maybe I have you mixed up with Panhead John. If so I apologize up front Homes for any phycological harm I may have caused you and your hunk o junk.

      Thanks for the input guys, it arrived today. A couple pork chops volunteered to be my first victims. I'll see how it goes!

      Sorry, didn't get a pic of the chops, but did a tomahawk today. I'll post it on SUWYC.

        sous-vide also excels at vegetables. Well worth giving some a bath.
