Simply the best of the bunch. After testing 11 different immersion circulators over the course of a month (that’s a lot of steak, yum!), there was one device that stood out. Not just because it looks different (but it does), but because it performed the best. The incredibly fun and user-friendly app also helped. This is the perfect starter device for someone brand new to sous vide, but it’s also an elegant kitchen appliance experienced chefs out there as well. Being able to interact with your cooking devices through your smartphone or with your voice is the way of the future, and Chefsteps Joule is leading the pack.
