Best Sous Vide Water Bath Reviews UK 2022

Updated June 2022

If you like to watch Master Chef on TV, then you may have seen a special type of cooking known as Sous Vide. This is where chefs will place food inside an airtight bag, and then into a water bath.

These baths are temperature controlled and are used by the leading top Michelin type chefs. The purpose behind this is to cook very slowly, at temperatures that are lower than normal, and also to retain all of the moisture and flavours, and cook right the way through.

It is of course a special type of cooking. In many ways it is a more sophisticated form of poaching food. You will find this style of cooking done in the higher end restaurants and by chefs like, Heston Blumenthal or Thomas Keller

Now if you are here on this page, you probably know a lot about this style of cooking. However for those that are not familiar, we have included a video below from the British Michelin star chef Tom Aikens  In this he shows how to cook a lamb fillet, using the Sous Vide method.
