Sous Vide Supreme

 I saw this interesting new product the other day on some blog, and immediately had to order myself a Sous Vide Supreme machine.  Well. pre-order anyway, since they were not yet shipping.



I'm glad I did, because I learned in today's article in the Times:
The first 500 SousVide Supreme machines sold out via the Internet before shipping in November, according to the manufacturers.
So I got one of the first 500, cool.  It was a no brainer for me to buy it because previously I had been very close to buying the full blown lab equipment immersion circulator they use in the restaurants.  Not only would that have been way more expensive, it would have taken up way more space.  I've been busy and have yet to give this puppy a test run, but I've got Keller's bible on the subject, Under Pressure: Cooking Sous Vide, so I've got my work cut out for me.  Perhaps this weekend I'll have some time to take her out on the track and see what she can do.  The article made her sound capable of great feats.  I'm quite excited.  What to do first...perfectly soft poached eggs, 24 hour short ribs...so many possibilities.

I'll keep you posted.
