    I was wondering if there's a recommended insulated or semi-insulated container that would make this more energy-efficient. The only thing that comes to mind is a big icebox/cooler.

    BK, Its not really necessary to insulate the box. These SV devices use very little electicity once they're at tempature. If I'm SV a large volume and I'm doing it in the cambro, sometime I'll wrap it with a thick bath towel
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    Depending on which unit you buy, and how much you want to SV concurrently, you might go with an insulated container to decrease heat loss and allow the unit to maintain temp with higher volumes. for the Sans Aire unit, it's supposed to be good up to 6 gallons w/o insulation.

    Well, they charged my card today, so I guess the project is an official go.

    Ditto. I just filled out the questionnaire to select voltage, color, and shipping addy.

    Psyched to get this in the house.

    I figured it would be a go when they hit 2x of their goal. At 8x there would have to be something very drastic for this not to go.

    Not even close. Not even in the top ten.

    Edit: never mind my grumpiness. I totally missed the word "food" before "project in Kickstarter history." Pardon my interruption.

    There is also this available for people on the fence about sous vide . For 199$ and i feel it represents a great solution or alternative



    It is made by a company named Anova and looks great , has a stainless cage and seems to be able to carry around its weight from what i can see in specs.

    My interest is the capacity of the pump and the heater when i look at products from one standpoint . And this can carry a 20lt container from what it says.

    I would like to make a note :

    Sous vide without chamber vacuum sealing is ok but i encourage everyone to look into chamber vacuum sealers if they are going to get serious with sous vide.
    Also learn how to use and pair your sous vide arsenal with a serious type k thermocouple/thermometer . The advantages are many when precision is required . Personally i do not sous vide fish without a type k attached in it and without differentiating portion size by thickness.
