Sous vide cookers use pre-heated water to cook food items, sealed in air-tight pouches. The temperature and time can be set by the user, and the cooking process starts as and when the user gives the prompt. The prompt can be given in multiple ways – pushing a button on the device, switching on a supply or tapping on a remote access app. Even these great sous vide machines may overlook any shortcomings of this product for the one single facility it offers, cooking in response to voice commands.
The voice app comes with the cooker, which is very compact and sleek, just like a portable speaker. The cooker is made of very high quality water resistant metal with extra thermal proofing for the safety of the application software and hardware. The app needs to be activated and the voice of the user registered. Once the cooker recognizes the voice, the user can give voice commands to set the temperature, start cooking, pause in between or stop the process.
The cooker is also equipped with a visual chart integrated to its LED display which lets you to visually monitor the progress of cooking. This review doesn’t repeat the other regular parameters which are more or less matching with standard sous vide cookers.
Though this is a very smart innovation for the deserving class, there are chances that the voice recognition software becomes extra sensitive to voice fluctuations like sound wave interference, voice change due to illness or distance. Bear in mind, heating water may take more time because of the extra sophistication.
This cooker will be a gift to the millions of multi-tasking women who run around the house managing every other thing while being busy with their most important task of preparing delicious and healthy food for the family.
