Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Responsive Touch Technology

  • Reality:

    The touch responsive tech is a beneficial addition to an earlier version of the product that has already seen substantial success. The allowance for easier interaction is potentially most advantageous for those who sometimes get in a hurry in the kitchen.

  • Claim:

    A Clear View Lid

  • Reality:

    Another creative addition to make the SousVide Supreme Touch+ a positive upgrade from the original device. Also, functionally, allows the end user to keep a visual record of food that is cooking.

  • Claim:

    Energy Efficiency

  • Reality:

    The earlier version of the SousVide Supreme Touch had a proven history of insulation that allowed for efficiency. With no major changes to the technology here, the device is set up for potential success in this claim.

  • Claim:

    Integrated Wifi

  • Reality:

    Wifi is a creative addition that allows for the ability to control the SousVide Supreme Touch+ from anywhere that an end user has connectivity.

  • Claim:

    A new state-of-the-art app

  • Reality:

    With so much relying on the User Experience, there are many variables that can play into a successful app, and mass use will only tell if it is “ state-of-the-art”, as well as help sort through the potential glitches.

  • Claim:

    Alexa compatibility

  • Reality:

    A common feature on "smart" devices recently is the beneficial ability to integrate with Alex. All tech and possibility adds up for the SousVide Supreme Touch+ to perform this function as well.

  • Claim:

    Sous Vide in Three Steps

  • Reality:

    The simplicity of using the SousVide Supreme Touch+ is made possible by the aforementioned steps of seasoning, sealing, and cooking in the device.

  • Claim:

    Perfectly cooked food every time

  • Reality:

    Perfection is very difficult to achieve. Cooking SousVide does allow precise control over temperature and desired preferences.

  • Claim:

    Simple to do

  • Reality:

    In comparison to potential complexities of preparing a meal at home, the ease of use is potentially very high.

  • Claim:

    Healthful, more nutritious meals

  • Reality:

    No additional oils are added and nothing is cooked away, with using the method of cooking of the SousVide.

  • Claim:

    Save Money!

  • Reality:

    There are many variables that play into the reality of saving money. This claim is dependent on the end user and not the device.

Bottom Line

There has been recent surge in interest for cooking with a SousVide and SousVide Supreme Touch+ builds on this trend as well as builds on a previous version of a highly successful device. With a touch responsive screen and wifi enabling, the SousVide Supreme Touch+ gains an even higher possibility of functionality than its predecessor. The price point of the early tiers on Kickstarter are beneficial for the end user. For those new to using a SousVide, this method and device will allow the possibility of simple, clean, and precise cooking. Keep in mind the potential glitches of a new app as well as the element of saving money falling on the responsibility of the end user, not the device.
