    Sansair immersion circulator will be released on 18th November and looks quite promising while keeping your budget low:

    Looking at VacMaster sealers. Seems like mid prices models would work well for me. Any cons on these?

    Is there a good sous-vide on the budged of $400?

    I also use the Polyscience 7306 AC sous vide. It's a durable unit for the price.
    You will need a vita mix blender as well.
    Good luck!

    What about the SousVide water oven? SLT carries them. Anyone know how well they work?

    What model VitaMix is good for an aspiring home cook now that it's up in the open?

    I guess I will have to work a bit harder to finance these things. Having seen them in action, and tasted food they were used to make, makes all the difference. In this I am like most of you guys, except I now crave gadgets, not knives.

    Personally I use the 5200 at home and work. It's a beast! I also reccomend getting an immersion blender.

    I own both the SousVide supreme and a ployscience... The SousVide oven holds temp of +/- .5 degree (pretty good), the down side is that even the larger unit (which I own) does not hold much. It should also be noted that the water does not circulate. I prefer the ployscience, but I do use the SVS more due to convenience.

    The 5200 is probably the most popular, but is the older/taller design. It might not fit under your cabinets, so if counter space matters you might be better off with the newer models (pro 300). I own a pro 750, but I only have this one because the other half needs the presets.

    Also note that the CIA model is the same as the 5200, it has a brushed metal base and a $50 higher price tag.

    Yea my 5200 is about 5 years old at this point. She's still shredding hard though. I would be lost without it for sure.

    What about Polyscience Sous Vide Professional™ CREATIVE SERIES? Those are priced within $400.
