Lifehacker has a great explainer on Sous-Vide cooking for you to check out, but the basic idea is that you seal your food in plastic bags, and then cook it in hot water over a longer period of time.

Sous Vide gear used to run you $400 or more, but the Anova Sous Vide starts around $120, and since we originally wrote this post, Gizmodo has put up a great review.

I’ve been using the Anova since April 2014, and really can’t recommend it enough. It’s the Aeropress of meat cooking.
