    Small polyscience vs SVS which one?

    http://www.cuisinetechnology.com/sousvide-at-home.php Should I try to grab this over the SVS or is it splitting hairs?

    It is however alot more cash.

    If you have the money I would get the polyscience.
    I spent a lot of time looking at those and chamber vacuum sealers.
    Exciting stuff.

    Don't know exactly what the SVS is. I do know that I have worked at a place that bought a cheaper circulator only to buy the polyscience a few months later because the results weren't as consistent. Just my two cents. If I remember right it was quail eggs that the cheap one couldn't nail.

    Are you using this in a pro or home setting? Either way, I'd go with the Poly. Very dependable and durable.

    svs= sous vide supreme

    It is for the home setting. I didnt even know poly sci made a smaller circulator until yesterday. Which is what we use to heat cool one of our really expensive instruments at work, so I know it is good stuff. It is a couple hundred more dollars so I wanted to get a few opinions before I sent the link to my wife for purchase.

    I enjoy that the polyscience actually circulates and that I can clamp it to a pot or the huge container they ship it with.

    Thanks for the opinions guys.

    I have the SVS, I wish I had a polysci though, its a superior device in every way except self containment and aesthetics.
    The price on that is really quite good if you consider that it comes with a $100 book (assuming you want the book) and the container as well. I would suggest getting another container as well to use to nest, thereby insulating your main container. It will save you a lot in wasted energy on longer cooks. I would consider a chamber vacuum sealer as well. Good luck!

    I see it's also available without the extras for $500, the book and container are definately worth the extra money for the combo, IMO.

    Am I the only one who saw this thread title and thought it was about subwoofers when reading SVS?

    While it's great to see the insulating balls used in a non-industrial application, those prices are insane. http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/ite...FexaMgodv3QAVQ
