I’m somewhat interested in sous vide. Turn lesser cuts of meat into tender, flavorful meals - sounds,like something I’d like to try my hand at.
I’ll just be cooking for myself, and on rare occasion, one other person. I see no reason to buy one of those huge 5 gal containers that you can cook ten steaks in. I was thinking of using my huge spaghetti pot for this, and getting an immersion heater. Been casually looking at heaters for a couple months - I have other things demanding my time right now, so I have no need to rush into it. I’ve noticed some well-reviewed heaters on Amazon for about $100, and Newegg has had sales on some for ~$60.
So, in light of my only cooking for 2, would such immersion heaters be OK, or are they poor quality and to be avoided? Nauturally, I don;t want to spend a lot more thannecessary, but I don’t want to buy one of poor quality, underpowered, and that ultimately is a waste of money.
