    Can't upload pic's but I cut up a prime rib to steaks and separated out the spinallis and the ribs. Got the whole deal on at 125*. Started champagne and orange juice at 9:00 eastern and we have two left outta seven. Didn't read any stinkin' destructions and we'll see how it goes. Ain't that hard. Merry Christmas bud!

    You too man. I'm about to start with a little bubbly myself. Running late today. Meal sounds great. It's hard to screw it up in the SV. Can't wait to see what you do with it. Get on with it already. The world is watching!

    i got a small egg/ nest...can't decide if I'm gonna keep it or return and get the PolySci unit. i'll probably keep the egg and just wait a couple weeks and buy the sous vide unit anyway.
    regift the egg.  I'll send you my address.  :D

  • It will be interesting to see how @double does with his $100 SideKic unit. 

    Foe most family cooks, this unit has lots of power and depending on the reliability, will be fine for most of us. 
    To all those enjoying a French "le spa", keep us informed.

    Saw the SideKic last night on Amazon list price of $160, on sale for $100, but currently unavailable. Noticed today, no sale price. Still at $160, you could get 2-1/2 SideKics for the price of the Polysci Chef unit at $400. 
    Look forward to your thoughts on Friday after the steak cook on Thursday.

    Got the Chef Series

    I got it off of eBay.  New and shipped for $562.  No bag but I can get one for $30 if I decide there is a need.

    That looks damn good!

    Sous vide ain't the equipment as much as the process - you can do it with a pot of water on the stove.  I'm not much for babysitting - set and forget.

    I bought myself the DIY PID controller for turning slow cooker into Sous Vide from Thermomart. Total cost $100.00 + 3 hours of manufacturing a waterproof box and figuring out the complex wiring and settings. I think it will work perfectly. Gratifying to get it all working properly, but If I had to do it all over again, I'd pay the 169.00 noted above which looks ready to go out of the box.
