Surprise yourself with the succulence and flavor that sous-vide has to offer. Experience foods that you’ve eaten your entire life as if it were the first time.

To sous-vide with the DSV, you must also have a suitable water-bath. Many household appliances can double as water-baths for use with the DSV, including slow cookers, rice cookers, and bucket heaters. Because the DSV works by switching a power outlet, suitable appliances must be capable of powering on without assistance when plugged in. Generally these devices are considered ‘manual’ and are less expensive than their ‘digital’ counterparts.

Take the simple test below to determine if your device is compatible with the Dorkfood DSV:

  • Turn It On

    Plug your appliance into an ordinary outlet and turn it on until it starts heating

  • Unplug It

    Unplug it without pressing any switches or changing any settings

  • Plug It Back In

    Plug your device back in

If the device continues heating after step 3, without any additional user input, it is compatible with the DSV
