Professional Sous Vide Water Bath Buying Guide

Professional Sous Vide Water Baths - A Buying Guide

Our range of commercial sous vide water baths are absolutely ideal for the professional chef, thanks to their controlled cooking functionality, meaning that you get the best results every single time. 

For a professional chef; a water bath offers a convenient solution to introducing sous vide to your restaurant.

We’re proud to offer a range of sous vide water baths from our own SousVideTools range.

When shopping for a water bath, consider what water capacity you need, bearing in mind that you’ll need to consider allowing space for the water to circulate around the food pouches.

Generally, you don’t want to be filling more than half of the water bath with food pouches as you may see inconsistent results if the water isn’t able to fully circulate around all pouches.

For a full comparison as to which sous vide water bath is right for your kitchen and usage needs, take a look at our comparison table below.

Here’s our simple guide to buying Water Baths

Why Sous Vide?

One of the most difficult things to achieve in a professional kitchen is consistency. 

From slight changes in cooking temperature to a marginal difference in the length of cooking time; the smallest of things can deliver significantly different results. 

This, to a professional chef is unacceptable. 

What if, however, there was a solution to the problem of inconsistency in the kitchen? A cooking technique which could deliver the perfect dish each and every time? 

One which could cook a steak to just the right colour and texture just as consistently as vegetables, fruit or, in reality, just about anything at all.

Say hello to sous vide, a technique which has been revolutionising professional kitchens for a good number of years and which is beginning to take the home kitchen by storm! 

Championed by everyone from Heston Blumenthal and Gordon Ramsay through to Raymond Blanc, Thomas Keller and many more, this relatively simple method of cooking is one which every chef needs to be using.

In short, the main benefits of sous vide are:

  • Simple and foolproof cooking
  • Enhanced flavours
  • Consistency
  • Convenience
  • Nutritional benefits
