DIY sous vide cooker
Sous-vide cooking is all the rage right now, thanks in part to the rise of “molecular gastronomy” (science in the kitchen). Sous vide is a method that uses a precisely-maintained low temperature water bath to cook a vacuum-sealed portion of food.
Chemical engineer Aaron wanted to give sous-vide cooking a try, but didn’t like the price tag of commercially-available units, so he built his own cooker controller.
He used off-the-shelf electronics and Personal Factory to laser-cut the enclosure to his specifications. His project post goes into great detail, documenting both the build and subsequent experiments with the system: it’s great reading for those of us that like a bit of maths with their hacking.
