Waiting in the wind
575 CPO
It's pretty funny that the sous vide machine I pre-ordered 23 months ago is finally being delivered today. Also on its way is a huge wind storm. There are already power outages as close as three blocks from here. I imagine I'll plug the thing in and the power will immediately go out.

While I wait, here's a video from yesterday I forgot to put in the post.

Sous vide machines have had a lot of criticism over here in the U.K. as you have to be so careful that you aren’t increasing bacteria in the meat by cooking unit at low temperatures. There have been a lot of issues with food poisoning!

One nice thing about the Mellow is that its app comes with presets for cooking times and temperatures based on what you tell it you're making. Assuming one allows it to complete its cycle, I can't see any reason to worry about undercooking items in it. Making a lot of items together in a restaurant would be a much greater undertaking and I'm glad I'm not in charge of that. :)
