Polyscience Sous Vide Professional Creative Series
Sous vide is a technique that slowly cooks vacuum-sealed foods in a water bath, bringing them to temperature gently to prevent overcooking and create incomparable texture. Our immersion circulator offers the same precise temperature control as the professional models used by restaurants, but does so with a quieter motor.
- Easy-to-use thermal circulator designed for home use.
- Simply set the circulator to the desired temperature and clamp it to a stockpot or plastic container filled with water.
- Powerful yet quiet pump actively circulates the heated water and ensures uniform cooking temperatures.
- Adjusts from 59°F to 210°F with the push of a button – and can be set to 1/10th of a degree.
- Large LCD screen displays actual and desired temperatures (in Fahrenheit or Celsius), so you can monitor progress at a glance.

- Cheddar Cauliflower Soup
In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the cauliflower and cook, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the broth, cream, the 2 tsp. salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the cauliflower is easily pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.
Using an immersion blender, blend the soup to a fine puree, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the cheese and stir until melted and well combined with the soup. Adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper.
Ladle the soup into individual bowls and serve immediately with toasted bread. Serves 6 to 8. Get the full cheddar-cauliflower soup recipe.
Rated 1 out of 5 by NickUrfe from Multiple Malfunctions – No Accountability I bought a Polyscience Creative four years ago, and after about two years of use, an overheating wire caused a short circuit. Given the cost of the unit compared to other circulators on the market, I was really upset. Polyscience paid for the repair, promising to upgrade the unit if I experienced another problem. Two weeks ago, my unit shorted AGAIN: the exact same wire in the same location, in spite of Polyscience adding insulated sleeves to the wire. There's clearly a design problem here, with this happening twice to me, and being well-documented by other reviewers. Well, Polyscience reneged on its offer for an upgrade and insisted on charging me almost $200 for the repair. Given the cost of this unit, I would recommend that you buy two Joules or Anovas, where each company is well-regarded for its customer service, than to waste your money on a product destined to break and to cost you the price of one of the other units in repairs. Bad design, bad customer service. Buyer beware.Date published: 2016-10-05Rated 3 out of 5 by Weinstein from Poorly manufactured I bought this product at SW. After a month of use the electrical cord started to short out and it stopped working. Replaced by SW. After another few weeks of use, the case started to warp and the seams opened. This time I contacted PolyScience and after sending them photos of the warping case and a purchase receipt, they accepted it back and sent me a replacement which has been performing well for the past six months. If you look at customer reviews on Amazon you will find that many purchasers have had similar mechanical failures with this machine. Seems that manufacturing and quality control are very poor with PolyScience.Date published: 2016-04-23Rated 1 out of 5 by CarlN from Not built to last We used this device for a few months, and liked it so much we purchased a second one for use on our boat. Unfortunately, the second one started smoking 9 months after we bought it. Fortunately, it blew a breaker and shut off. This unit is not designed to be used for more than 12 hours at a time.This is unfortunate, because some recipes require sous vide cooking at up to 72 hours. So, if you want to make a nice Osso Bucco that cooks for 72 hours, this is not the machine for you. At this price point, it doesn't make much sense to buy this if it only lasts 9 months. You can get immersion cookers that cost under $200, which are more like a disposable unit.Date published: 2015-11-07Rated 2 out of 5 by steve415 from Worked for a year and a half, then burned out I have mixed feelings on this one. It has served me well for a while, but failed yesterday. It shorted and burned up inside the control unit, melting the case, and now it no longer heats up. (Photo of the insides attached.) Looking online, it sounds like a few other people had this problem, so I think I'll replace it with a different brand.Date published: 2015-08-24Rated 2 out of 5 by jhillmon from Broken after 17 months Worked great until it broke (outside of 12 month warranty). Insulation melted on power connector to the heater causing a short. See attached image.Date published: 2014-07-09Rated 5 out of 5 by Stefano from One of my favorite toys When I first started experimenting with sous-vide, I envisioned a device like this, and I was very happy to find out that it existed and was reasonably priced. I love the fact that you can just clamp it on to whatever container is appropriate for what you are doing. It's easy to use, straightforward, it's an elegant design, and the accompanying documentation is clear and concise. It gets the water to temperature very quickly also My only nit is, as I think another reviewer mentioned, it would be nice if it somehow retained the previous temperature setting so you don't have to take the time to set the temperature each time you use it.Date published: 2013-09-18Rated 5 out of 5 by girl1der1975 from My husband's new favorite toy I bought this for my husband for his birthday and he absolutely loves it. It is easy to use, easy to clean and stores easily. I also bought him the Modernist Cuisine book which has many recipes that use sous vide. This was quite helpful in knowing what is possible with a machine like this.Date published: 2013-08-18Rated 5 out of 5 by WhatTheWhat84 from A Worthwhile Investment for Delicious Food! I previously used a makeshift sous vide set up (digital temperature probe and pot of water on the stove). That worked fine but needed constant attention to maintain the correct temp. After tasting how delicious everything was using this technique, it was an easy justification to buy the Polyscience Sous Vide unit. The first unit we received failed on the second use but WS was great about sending a replacement right away! We've used for so many wonderful dishes along with our Ary Chamber Vacuum (spring for the chamber vac sealer BTW!). I couldn't be happier and am wowing dinner guests. P.S. try the sous vide turkey recipe here on the WS site!!Date published: 2013-04-06
