AICOK Sous Vide Precision Cooker : Easy to use precision cooker

I would definitely recommend this sous vide.

Bought as birthday gift for boyfriend. Got carried away watching a youtube channel called sous vide everything. Cooks perfectly but does seem to think the water level is too high after a while from the steam build up and beeps incessantly so now we cook items with the kitchen door closed.

Makes cheap joints tender a succulent ,perfectly cooked.

 update: dropped to 3 stars. So had this for over a year and it still works but the touch screen control pad has kind of failed. If i plug it in and then try to press any of the buttons it doesn’t work. What i found is that the only way to get the touch pad to recognise the touch is to press and hold my finger on the touch screen and then turn it on at the plug at this point the screen will turn on and accept commands. Apart from this issue which is kind of major it works fine. So guess this is a quality control issue but have to admit it is still one of the cheapest sous vide units. Original review : 5 starsi bought this as a back up for my anova and to use when cooking at two different temperatures. Functionally as good, it lacks the anova’s bluetooth connectivity but to be honest i never use the app and not sure it is worth the extra. The instruction manual could be better but its pretty simple. Plug it in , press the on button, set the desired temperature by turning the control wheel.

My cousin introduced me to sous vide cooking recently and i wanted to try this. The popular anova seemed a bit pricey and i didnt need the bluetooth features so i opted for this one as i had an aicok grinder before and the quality is good. It is super easy to use, just clips onto any usual pan. I made note a few other reviewers here had problems with error messages from limescale, so im planning to use this with filtered water. It worked just as advertised and similar to my cousins results so all good.

As a ‘newbie’ to sous vide cooking, i ordered this appliance having read other reviews and decided that i wanted something that offered great value for money and simplicity without the added complication of requiring a phone app. The item was delivered the next day and the i had it working successfully in no time after i had read the instructions. I used it attached to a deep crock pot to cook a steak and set the temperature and cooking times as suggested on various you tube sites that cater for learning about sous vide cooking. The steak was cooked as required, and after searing it in a hot pan, it was delicious. Setting the necessary timer etc was easy with the control wheel, although i did find the changing of the temperature from celcius to farenheit didn’t activate immediately as instructed in the booklet ( pressing the power button an set button at the same time. ) i am looking forward to trying the appliance on the many different foods that can be prepared in this way. Recommended product for ease of use, functionality and easy storage.

Looks and feels, a very good well made quailty product. So far only used it once, (cooked some rump steaks), and cooks to perfection. Only thing to be aware of, is the relatively low cooking temps, even after a flash fry, the steak went cool quite quickly in the plate. Next time will try some time in the microwave to raise the temp, and used heated diner plates. Instruction are not easy to follow. Seems like a direct translation to english.

Firstly sous vide is sooo much better. But then, you already knew that from the other reviews. My previous anova sous vide wand blew something and i didn’t want to shell out the same high price. This model is not only cheaper but has features the anova lacks: primarily delayed start. It means i can wake up to perfectly cooked sausages just by setting them up the night before. Previously, with my anova i had to remember to set it running as soon as i woke up, in order to have my sausages 45 minutes later. Little touches like that make a huge difference. The clip to hold it in place is great. It does mean you have to use a tall container (see my photo) but that’s fine with me – it takes up less counter space.

  • works as good as the anova
  • At £80, why wouldn’t you? Well, it didn’t last!
  • Beats the Anova on features and price

Look at a number fo these i settled for this one as it seemed to offer the best price to versatility ration. I am new to sous vide cookery and even understanding the principles regarding the contestant temperature principle i considered that the 1500 watt output of this would mean quicker warm up times for the water bath and better responsiveness to temperature fluctuations. In use i have not been disappointed. The rather large 10-12 litre water bath i use warms up quickly to the desired temperature and the unit maintains the desired coooking temperature throughout the cooking process and is almost silent running. The meats i have cooked so far are cooked to perfection and i look forward to many many years use with this product.

Too early to judge durability but otherwise looks good and works as it should. I bought this to try sous vide for the first time. Chose cheap and have no regrets. The side grip increases the size of the container you need. Check this first before ordering a tank.

Took a little bit of reading to get my understand but once through the manual then off we go. Really easy to use, very efficient and the end result is fantastic. Wish i’d bought one years ago.

I have used this twice, and both times the results were excellent. It was very easy to use, and performed flawlessly. I would recommend this anyone interested in this method of cooking.

The product itself is relatively easy to use and effective. I rarely use it and after a few uses, the handle snapped. I owned it for just over a year, so i was worried that might not be able to replace or repair; however, when i email their customer service department, they respond swiftly and immediate offer a partial refund or a brand new replacement. The replacement process also really fast and easy. Overall, i am a happy customer.

Update: tried doing mashed potatoes at 85c and it died. This was somewhere around the 20th-25th time it’s been used, quite possibly it just cannot handle the higher temperatures (cannot see why it would be a problem though). While it lastsamazing bit of kit for £80 and so simple you can get cooking within 5 minutes of unboxing. I just use a very deep soup/stew saucepan and a makeshift clingfilm lid – absolutely no need to invest in anything else to get going with this. Resealable freezer bags (ideally with a double sealing strip) work just as well as vaccum sealing – just dunk the filled bag into water (without going past the seal) and the pressure will displace the air in the bag, then seal and you’re done. Have cooked several cuts of meat from venison tenderloins to beef picanha and they have all come out perfect and ready to sear – juicy, bursting with flavour and perfectly medium-rare all the way through. The more cooking required, the more meat seems to benefit from this cooking method – leg of mutton and a big beef brisket are on my list of things to try. Just pat it dry and finish on a bbq grill/chimney or just a very hot frying pan – the hotter the better, since lower searing temps will take longer and result in some overcooking of the outer meat. Few tips:- fill your sous vide pan/container from the hot tap, saves a lot of heating time.

I recently purchased this item and i am happy with the product. Nice design and easy to use. I have to master the techniques though.

Its become my main way to cook, vegetable, chicken portions and sausages so far. You will need a vac sealer and bags and simply cook for 2 hours @ 75c and you cannot go wrong. I also suggest a few gas cans with a burner so that you can singe the meat for some colour otherwise your meat looks like it just come out of the morgue. I am now the head chef of the house and everybody, including visitors always complement me on my meat.
