The Ferrari of kitchen tools Polyscience Sou Vide Hydro Pro

  • If you’re going to splurge on proper sous vide equipment, the PolyScience Hydro Pro may be the Ferrari of kitchen tools, suggests Adam Raksin, the executive chef of New York City restaurant The Grid — who adds that it produces “perfectly cooked and seasoned food.” 

  • The tool’s immersion circulator is designed to heat and circulate water and maintain precise temperature control.

  • It comes with a bath that can hold up to 12 gallons of water and an adjustable clamp to attach to a different pot or container.

  • Offers a digital needle probe that shows your food’s temperature in real time and cooks can adjust it using a touchscreen interface that has Bluetooth compatibility.

“One thing that’s very important is to always remember to check the seals on your plastic bag that you are using to hold the food inside. It seems like a no-brainer, but it can cause serious problems,” says Raksin, stressing the importance of making sure all parts of the machine are cleaned and dry after use. “Another key that I always like to follow is to make sure that the water is preheated or at the correct temperature before you place your food items inside of the water bath.” 

Raksin says the consistency of the Polyscience Sou Vide Hydro Pro to produce restaurant quality food is what sold him on it. Whether he’s making chicken breast or steak, he says food comes out “perfectly cooked and seasoned.”
