Sous Vide machines are in style again as many are realizing that enjoying a professionally cooked meal doesn’t have to cost you a fortune!
Today, we are going to be reviewing a very nice product from the guys over at Forsous.
Considering the fact that competition is quite stiff when it comes to Sous Vide equipment, there is zero reason to expect anything but top notch quality when going over a Forsous product.
What I Liked About The Forsous
1) Very Easy To Use
This is the first thing that caught my attention, there weren’t any complicated steps or rituals I had to complete.
It was all quite straightforward; I turned on the cooker, attached it to my pot, adjusted the temperature and I was ready to go!
2) The Amount Of Power Was Impressive
If you have ever bought a machine designed for Sous Vide cooking, you know how much time it can take to fire them and up and get them going.
That is why the motor behind the engine is very important to consider.
When we take a look at this model, we can see that 800 Watts of pure awesomeness ensure that your water is heated up in a heartbeat!
I was also amazed at the fact that the machine itself wasn’t overheated, meaning that they put a lot of thought into hitting that sweet spot for perfect cooking.
While we are at it, the temperature being fully adjustable and the cooker being able to use absolute precision in between temperature in the range of 40-90 degrees Celsius was just an added bonus.
3) No Cleanup Process!
That’s a small white lie, isn’t it?
With this model in particular, it was a breeze as the steel pump was fully removable, so a simple wash was sufficient enough to get the machine clean!
4) The Control Panel Was Very Simple
This is personal preference to be perfectly honest.
Some like more buttons and screen to look at.
I’m the type of guy that just wants it all laid out. When I start something, I want to be able to fully immerse myself into it and that’s why I really liked the simple layout of this Sous Vide machine!
5) Light Weight
I’m not a bodybuilder or anything so I hate it when I have to feel like a weakling every time I grab ahold of any item that weighs more than five pounds.
With only 3,5 pounds to its name, this is one of those models that you can carry around almost anywhere you want to.
You also don’t have to worry about any sort of transportation issues occurring as it can fit almost anywhere!
What Could Be Improved Upon
1) It Is Powerful But Small
That was a bit of a pet peeve of mine. If you are going to be cooking a bigger meal meant for a larger amount of people, then I wouldn’t really recommend this model to you.
You see, the maximum size of the container is capped at 15 liters which is respectable but still won’t help you when you have to feed a lot of mouths at once.
2) The Material Is Nice But It Could Be Better
This machine is very easy to hold and fits nicely in your hand but after some abuse, you can see that the material isn’t that good.
I mean we are here talking about steel but I still feel like they could have added an aluminum layer on top of that.
The thing is, cookers used for Sous Vide are oftentimes used very frequently and with that one has to consider having the best possible ‘exoskeleton’ that there is.
I might have been a bit too hard on the product itself but I feel like that is my job as I’m here to bring you the best out of the best.
Considering the fact that Forsous has many decades of experience behind them, I simply know that they will make the necessary adjustments in order to create even better models in the future.
All in all, this is still a very high-quality piece of work that I would gladly recommend to almost anyone.
Unless you are trying to feed an army, it will fit in almost any household as it adapts to most if not all pots and it’s quite child-friendly to top it off.
