Wood fire pizza ovens are amazing ways to cook high quality authentic pizza. The end result of doing so is always far better than anything you could make in a conventional oven you find in most home kitchens. It’s tasty, it’s fun, and gets you involved in cooking much more than just making frozen pizza! But, […]
It may sound silly, but when I first got started with sous vide, one of the thing I was focused on, and confused about, was which container to use. I saw, what looked to me at the time, specialized sous vide containers people were using in cooking videos, but I had no idea where to […]
One of the most important decisions with sous vide cooking is the tool you use to control the water temperature. This item plays a key role in how easy sous vide cooking is but the decision can be somewhat confusing. One challenge is that there are so many expensive products on the market, including the […]

KettlePizza Gas VS Charcoal I’m already firing up both my gas and my charcoal grill getting ready for the 2017 grilling season.

It’s March, and I’ve already got grilling on the brain. Out here in California I also grill during the winter, just because I can, but it’s not until Spring and Summer until it really starts to get enjoyable. That’s when you can hang out by the barbecue and just enjoy the weather, along with friends, […]
The line between bluetooth sous vide appliances and ones that connect to WiFi is blurred. As of 2017, there’s only one “bluetooth only” device on the market, though you do need to have bluetooth in order to use the the WiFi-enabled ones. Usually, it means you’ll pair the device via Bluetooth, then connect the device to your WiFi signal through your smartphone.
Bluetooth is quite limited in range, so without an additional WiFi feature, you’ll be limited to being as far as “the next room” before you’ll lose remote control. That means other than monitoring your sous vide steak while watching TV (which is still pretty cool), you’ll basically have a regular immersion circulator. I’ll dig into that a bit more below when talking about the only bluetooth sous vide device, but I just wanted to clear up what we’ll be talking about in this post. Yes, it’s going to include the WiFi devices as well.
Gourmia sous vide devices have slightly different names, and are sold under different titles depending on where you by. Sometimes they are called immersion circulators, sometimes immersion pods, sometimes sous vide pods, and any combination of the words above.
Despite the varying descriptions, what they do is all the same. They are an immersion circulator for cooking sous vide. This means you can get the same professional quality sous vide cooking of expensive restaurants in your own home. You don’t even have to buy one of those $700 water ovens. All you need is a pot or heat safe container and some Ziploc bags to get started.
Slow cooker brands tend to produce a large range of different models, often only varying slightly from one another. This can make shopping incredibly confusing, especially as the differences between the individual models are not always obvious. For example, the number of models from Crock-Pot and Hamilton Beach alone is pretty overwhelming.
In contrast, Bella takes a simpler approach to slow cookers. The company doesn’t actually have all that many models and in most cases, the differences between them are pretty clear. However, you’ll find that there are a lot more options than normal in terms of visual appearance.
This means that many of the models come with multiple different choices for color. Those color differences don’t tend to affect performance. Nevertheless, they’re a great option if you’re trying to color coordinate your kitchen, or if you’re just looking for something a little unusual.
I’ve recently been fascinated with the various slow cooker models out there and the way that these vary When you first start shopping, the number of choices can often seem overwhelming, especially as the differences between them can be subtle and aren’t always easy to spot. So, how do you get the best deal and end up with a slow cooker that works well for your needs? To help with this process, we’ve been developing a range of lists, comparing the different models that are out there. In some cases, brands have a large range, including multiple different styles, sizes and ranges.
Perhaps the best, and the worst, thing about slow cookers is that there are simply so many different models out there. On one hand, this variety is great because it means that there is no shortage of options and, with enough shopping around, you can find something perfect for you.
But, on the other hand, the range of models can quickly get confusing and overwhelming. After all, many of the different slow cooker models seem pretty similar to one another. In some cases, models may even seem to be identical.
