Sous vide is a cooking technique that involves vacuum sealing food in a plastic pouch, then immersing it in a precision-controlled water bath to cook. The water is heated to the exact temperature needed properly and evenly cook the food. With sous vide, you can achieve consistent, restaurant-quality results every time. It works especially well for cooking meat, fish, eggs, and vegetables, yielding exceptionally tender and juicy food that retains moisture and flavor incredibly well. The vacuum sealing and precise temperature control give sous vide an advantage over other cooking methods.
The MeatStick is a wireless smart thermometer that transforms how you cook meat by providing precise real-time temperature monitoring and control. This Bluetooth and WiFi-connected device pairs with the MeatStick app on your iOS or Android phone, enabling you to track both the internal and ambient temperatures of your meal.
Long sous vide cooks like pork shoulders that require 18-24 hours at 145°F can be risky if your immersion circulator fails mid-cook. A power outage or malfunctioning unit shutting off means you'll likely end up with a bag of rotten meat instead of a tender, juicy pork shoulder. That's why The MeatStick is so valuable for sous vide. Its wireless connectivity and long battery life gives you uninterrupted temperature monitoring even if your sous vide machine stops working. The MeatStick will send an alert straight to your phone letting you know of ambient temperature drops. You'll have time to troubleshoot your circulator or transfer bags to another water bath if needed. The MeatStick gives you temperature data and peace of mind so you can step away from marathon cooks without fear of equipment failures ruining the end result.
MeatStick will help speed up cook times for foods like small cuts of meat. Rather than relying on the broad time ranges often given in recipes, The MeatStick allows you to monitor the internal temperature in real-time and remove your food from the heat at the exact moment it reaches your desired doneness.
For example, a recipe may tell you to cook steak anywhere from 1-4 hours for medium rare. But with the precision of the MeatStick, you'll know precisely when the center hits your target temp of 130°F for medium-rare. This will shave a couple of hours from the total cooking time for smaller cuts of meat.
