USING YOUR SOUS VIDE 1) Place the appliance on a flat surface. Plug In. Fill the water bath with lukewarm or hot water. The water must not be hotter than the cooking temperature. The water must not be above the FILL mark in the water bath, and it must cover the foods you want to cook. Make sure not to overfill the water bath with water so that it overflows when the foods are placed in it! 2) If necessary, insert the rack (5) in the water bath if you want to cook foods that are best placed on the rack. 3) Place the lid (1) on the water bath (3). 4) Press and hold the on/off button (7) to switch the appliance on. The display will come on and the temperature is automati-cally set to 56 °C. 5) Adjust the temperature as required using the + and - buttons (8). You can also switch the temperature display between 6) Celsius and Fahrenheit using the F/C button (9). 7) Press the Timer/Temp (6) button and adjust the cooking time from 30 minutes to 72 hours using the + and - buttons (8). The cooking time is set as standard to 8 hours. 8) Press the Start/Stop button. The appliance preheats the water to the set temperature before the cooking time begins to count down. The display shows the current temperature of the water. If you press the F/C button (9), the set temperature is displayed for 5 seconds. 9) Once the water has reached the preset temperature, 3 beeps will sound. Lift the lid off and carefully lay the vacuum-packed food in the water bath using tongs. The water must be able to circulate around the packs of food. Replace the lid. 10) Press the Start/Stop button. The cooking time starts to count down. 11) Once the cooking time has elapsed, 3 beeps will sound and the appliance will switch itself off. 12) In the event of a temporary power cut during cooking, the appliance will resume the cooking process if it is turned on again within 30 minutes. 13) You must not remove the lid during cooking unless absolutely necessary. The appliance cooks at a very low temperature, so it takes a long time to regain any heat loss. If condensation forms on the inside of the lid so that you cannot see into the water bath, you can tilt the lid gently away from you so that condensation runs down into the water bath. Note: Make sure the bags are completely sealed before cooking begins. Note: Make sure the bags are still completely sealed once cooking is finished. 14) If the food is to be consumed within a few hours, it can be kept in the water bath for a short time without ruining the structure. You can see the standing times in the table later on in these instructions. 15) If the food is to be stored in the fridge for later use, immediately place the bags in ice water to quickly reduce the temperature of the food. MANUFACTURER'S TIPS ABOUT SOUS VIDE COOKING Sous vide has long been a popular cooking method with professional chefs. “Sous vide” is French for “under vacuum”. It describes a cooking method in which food is placed in sealed vacuum bags and cooked in a water bath. The food is cooked at a constant low temperature over a long time to make it moist and flavorful. As the vacuum bag Is sealed, the food cooks in its own juices together with the marinades or spices you added. Vitamins, minerals and juices are retained and the flavor of the food is enhanced. This makes the food healthier, more tender and more flavorful. As meat cooked in a sous vide is more tender, it is possible to use cheaper cuts, such as neck fillet, shank and shoulder, which are often tastier than the more expensive cuts. As sous vide cooking requires that foods be vacuum packed individually, several items can be cooked at the same time, as long as their cooking temperature is the same. It is difficult to overcook food with sous vide, but the structure of the food can change slight-ly during cooking. The food can be prepared in plenty of time before serving, making sous vide perfect for when you have guest. TEMPERATURES The appliance has a temperature range of 113-194 °F in increments of 1 °F. Differ- ent temperatures are required for different foods and different degrees of well- done. You can see sous vide temperatures and times in the table later on in this manual. COOKING TIME The cooking time does not depend on the weight of the food, but its thickness. The standard cooking time is 8 hours. The time can be adjusted from 30 minutes to 72 hours. You can see sous vide temperatures and times in the table later on in this manual. FOODS FOR SOUS VIDE COOKING Meat is particularly suited to sous vide cooking, as sous vide cooking makes it more tender, juicy and flavorful, but vegetables and fish can also be cooked in it. We recommend sous vide cooking for the following foods: + Beef, veal, lamb, pork and game < Chicken, turkey and duck < Lean and oily fish, lobster tails and scallops + Root vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, parsnips, beetroot and turnips « Crisp vegetables such as peas, asparagus, corn, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, onions and squash. « Hard fruits such as apples and pears + Soft fruits such as mango, plums, apricots, peaches, nectarines, papaya and strawberries SOUS VIDE COOKING STEP BY STEP 1) Seasoning You can marinate the food or add spices, herbs, butter or oil before you seal the vacuum bag. 2) Vacuum sealing The food must be vacuum sealed in a bag to remove air and moisture. This ensures that the foods retain their natural flavour and nutritional content. Vacuum sealing also helps to open the pores of meat, poultry, fish and shellfish, so that the marinade and spices are absorbed better and the food is more flavorful. Oxygen and moisture in the air reduces the flavor, nutritional content and struc- ture of food, and it is therefore important to use a high-quality vacuum sealer to remove air and moisture before the bag is sealed to ensure the food is optimally vacuum packed. 3) Cooking Once the water in the water bath has reached the required temperature, the vacuum bags containing the food should be placed gently in the water. Make sure the bags are completely under water, and that the water can circulate around the bags, so the food cooks evenly. 4) Browning When foods are cooked sous vide, it may be necessary to brown meat in particu- lar in a frying pan or grill in order to enhance its appearance and flavor. Remove the food from the bag and brown it quickly on a very hot frying pan or grill rack. This causes the fat and proteins to caramelize and enhances the flavor. PREPARING FOODS FOR SOUS VIDE COOKING + Foods for sous vide cooking must be absolutely fresh. « Check that meat, poultry, fish and shellfish have been stored correctly below 41 °F before cooking. - Only use brand new and clean vacuum bags. - Keep fresh and cooked foods apart. + Wash your hands and work area thoroughly before handling food. The thickness of the food must be as described in the table of sous vide tempera- tures and times.
