The Wancle Sous Vide Precision Cooker is actually a thermal immersion circulator that you clip to the side of any cooking vessel, be it a pot or a large plastic cook bin. Once attached, you put your food and seasonings inside a vacuum seal or freezer bag, drop the bag in the water and set the Wancle to the precise time and temperature you need. Then you can walk away. You don’t have to babysit the food anymore.

Once activated, the Wancle heats the water, and the warmer water cooks your food. It’s like a water oven that uses gentle heat instead of harsh heat. This allows your food to heat evenly all the way through, without any overcooking. Gentle heat means a longer cook time, but it’s so worth it. Because the food is sealed in the bag, it never loses any of its flavor. Once cooked, just throw your meat in a pan to sear the outside.

The Wancle cooks everything from meats and seafood to eggs, pasta and baked goods. If you’re a foodie, you need a Sous Vide. If you’re a busy professional or mom, it’s great for multi-tasking. It gives you the same control as a slow cooker, but it won’t dry your food like a slow cooker might. When you’re finished, it’s easy to clean.
