  • Rated 4 out of 5 by from I could live without it.... But I'm glad I don't have to. Definitely designed for professionals, which I am not, but I use and appreciate its talents daily. It adds the precision missing in usual stove top cooking. I have used induction and sous vide technology for years, but this takes things to a different level. I now infuse oils and liquor in a pan directly on the burner without the bother of a water bath. Temper chocolate effortlessly. Make medicinals with utter precision. Return previously cooked sous vide items to temp before searing. Deep frying and candy making are a breeze. If temperature really matters, cooking on this baby is the way to go. Why not 5 stars? Would love to be able to program more than one step at a time. For example, I like to make yogurt with fermentation temperature declining at a controlled rate over time. Would love to program the whole routine at once. Wifi or Bluetooth would be nice too. What it does do, however, it does perfectly.
