Was hoping to find the $65 Sous Vide cooker mentioned here, but the store that I went to that had 2 in stock, they were full price...RATS

 

That store did have a ton of yellow tags (on the shelf not on the item) for electronics markdowns, but pretty much all items were wiped out that were 75% off. 

not the $65 clearance price point, but several retailers have the $220 unit down to $129.99 now.  Amazon, Target, BestBuy,

I have 5 Targets in my area, but the one 3mins from my house still has the Sous Vide cooker, over 5 in stock, and still at full price, $219.99, the other 4 Targers are all SOLD OUT, because they clearanced them out, 1st at 50% and then at 75%. 

So i'm still checking my Target weekly to see if they will do the same soon..  would make great xmas gifts for the family!!

It's delicious and so easy. There nothing like throwing dinner on to cook and going to take a nap.

I've never cared for the burnt sear style, a quick stop in the pan gets the heat right and enough of a finish for us. Making things like pork shoulder you don't even need that, I've just shredded and moved on. Fantastic to cook chicken and dice it up after, the tenderness comes through in the small bits.

My favorite channel lately is Sous Vide Everything.

^^ SOLD, jus off the strength of what your wrote above..

plus PATIENCE paid off, they finally hit the infamously rare 70% clearance mark so it was a NO BRAINER!!!  One for me and one to gift to the rents..

any apartment dwellers here?  How do you keep from NOT smoking up the joint?  Figure anker the steaks right, then pan sear on cast iron for the char'd crust.. but I already know thats gonna generate lotta of smoke right, and what about the smell?    I made some arracheras (skirt steak) on a lil George Foremen grill and the smell was the pad for 2+ weeks..

the question is are you actually going to use it? sous vide is good but it takes a long time.

for no real reason, I don't eat meat as much as you I used to.. probably cuz I no longer have easy access to a grill I think.

was hoping this would change things but from what I'm readin most people want the char on their steak so..  well, that seems to require a lot of smoke/smell/odors in a 645sq ft living space that I'm not sure I want to explore..  right?

guess to YouTube videos I go to research some more.   thanks for the reply

stopped coming to CAG a while back cuz Brickseeker was broken, oh and to try and curb my HOARDING ways..  A buddy just sent me the below pic and I figured before I drive all over, to check Brickseek, however 1+ year later and still doesn't seem to be working correctly..

so few quick questions:

#1 - whats the deal with Brickseek? Did Target wise up to them or something...

#2 - Is there any proper way besides driving all over to check store on hand and more importantly TRUE STORE prices?   That vinyl clearance someone posted a while back.. man, would have loved that!!

#3 - Target clearance seems to have gone the way of Walmart clearance, rarely do we see the stockpiles of stuff clearanced out anymore, or is it just me?


here's the item of interest if anyone interested: $109 - Anova Sous Vide Wifi Precision Cooker

**New to Sous Vide, so is it really worth it?  Pro's and Con's please, as I don't want another expensive tech paperweight gathering dust like my brand new GoPro Max 8 I bought 2-3yrs ago...
