Giles & Posner Sous Vide and Slow Cooker - This sous vide is a fantastic all in one kitchen appliance. The sous vide technique involves cooking food in vacuum sealed pouches submerged in a water bath held at a precisely controlled temperature. Made popular by Michelin Star restaurants and celebrity chefs the Sous Vide technique (French for under vaccuum) involves cooking food in vacuum sealed pouches, submerged in a water bath held at a precisely controlled temperature. It cooks steaks, chicken breasts, vegetables and ribs perfectly. The food cooks in its juices, intensifying the natural flavours and retaining all of the nutrients, and because the meat is slow cooked you can use cheaper cuts and still get a delicious taste. This versatile machine can also be used as a standard family slow cooker, ideal for stews, currys and casseroles. 5.7 litre capacity

As it has a removable non stick tub you can also use it as a slow cooker, albeit rather large. I measured my other 'real' slow cooker that I have now given away and it measures 97, 94, 88 Degrees C on High, Medium, and Low respectively, so one would just set this machine to that, its maximum being 99 C.
I have had complete success cooking meat in it, for instance a piece of topside/top rump of the sort often found for sale half price in the major supermarkets, the result was tender and perfectly done. I have done steaks in it with success. I recommend the Polyscience sous vide app for the iPhone/iPad for calculating times, although there are other methods and charts all over the internet. I am not sure the G&P would be accurate enough for some of the more abstruse concoctions, or eggs for instance. You need an accurate thermometer to go with it.
So about the things that I'm questioning .... and having recently purchased one of these, Ihave mixed feelings about it.
Using a thermometer (calibrated in ice water 30s / or boling water 1 min), i can fairly confident say my model is about 4 degrees colder than the display suggests, so I have to compensate when setting. But it's consistent at least.
It's reasonably quick to get to temperature...the manual suggests about an hour...but that does depend whether you're cooking meat at 55 or veg at 85...What i do find frustrating is that the timer only goes up to to 24hrs...maybe i'm missing something, but that is a major down point if you're cooking something like a lamb shank for 2 days!! As another reviewer stated is does bleep a lot, and can be a little confusing. And once you've set it you don't appear to be able to change the temperature or time... but again you can get around this.
For a first sous vide on something of a budget it's okay once you get to know it.... but being a bit of a kitchen gadget sort of person I feel slightly let down.... maybe should have spent more, and I am considering returning and paying the extra for the SousVide Supreme Demi Water Oven
