Lifehacker has a great explainer on Sous-Vide cooking for you to check out, but the basic idea is that you seal the food in plastic bags, and then cook it in precisely heated water over a longer period of time. It sounds weird, but trust me when I say that it works like magic.
Several retailers have promised to sell the Bluetooth model for $100 on Black Friday, so it might be worth waiting for that. Just note that the Wi-Fi model should heat up your water a little faster (900W element vs. 800W), and since it connects via Wi-Fi, you could turn it on before you leave work, and have a perfectly heated water bath waiting for you at home. Is that worth an extra $59? That’s up to you.
