Suck it up and buy the equipment,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Alinea (Hardcover)
For all of you ordering/reading these amazing new MG books especially using sous vide techniques, just suck-it-up and buy an immersion circulator and a vacuum chamber. I tried doing the "home-made" versions with a cheap vacuum machine (not anything like a chamber) and a water bath with a temp gauge...not the same. You can buy a reasonable priced vacuum chamber for ~$1,000 and a circulator for around $600. They have transformed my life, cooking level and convenience. They are worth every penny. I am just a home cook (not professional) and can't live without them. You will make your $$$ back from buying bulk, low cost of vacuum bags (compared to zip-lock or vacuum perforated bags), lack of waist/spoilage, and just ease of mind/convenience when preparing a meal. It will be the best investment you will ever make if you enjoy cooking.

Any recommendations on the sous vide equipment to buy? Not even sure where to start. You can buy complete units in the $400 range, but I gather they're pretty small.
