Sansaire Sous Vide Product Review and Features
The Sansaire Sous Vide Immersion Circulator was one of the first consumer level sous vide machines to gain popularity. While it’s still a reliable high quality unit the product is a little dated compared to some other models. That said it’s still a good chocie for people interested in sous vide cooking.
This model is tall black polycarbonate tube that has a concave shape that gets narrower in the middle and wider at both ends. Aside from the mounting clip, nothing sticks out, so it’s a very modern and sleek design. It’s 15″ and the circulator tube is 3″ in diameter at it’s widest point. The quality of the product is top notch the polycarbonate housing feels very solid.The for this model is located on the side and is an alligator style clamp. You squeeze one end, and it opens the other. This isn’t our favorite design but we disliked the alligator clamp on this one the least. The difference is it’s a very long/deep clamp giving you the flexibility to use it to adjust the height.
This model puts out 1100 watts of power, which was higher than most models, only the Gourmia sous vide machines had a higher power rating. This means your water will come up to the proper temperature much faster. The maximum temperature is 212°F which is the highest of all the units we tested. Most people won’t need to go that high, but if you do this model should be on your short list. The minimum water level is 3″ and the maximum is 3.25″ this is a really good range and means you won’t have to babysit the water level for any long-cooking sous vide recipes. It can also handle a maximum of 6 gallons which is the highest of all the models we reviewed. It also moves the water at 3 GPM which was again the highest of any model. A high flow rate heats the water faster and helps keep the temperature stable. With all of the extra capacity for heating and moving the water, we expected this was going to be one of the noisier models but were surprised it wasn’t.
The controls to operate this model are fairly simple, the power and temperature button are located on the top. The temperature is set by turning a ring located near the top. The display is a large blue LED readout, that you can read from across the room. Of all the models we looked at this was the easiest to read from a distance. One of the shortcomings is there is no built-in timer, however, the models that did have a timer were needlessly complex to set, so it’s not a huge drawback. This model does not have Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity.Overall this is a very high-quality unit that may be the best choice for many people. Our complaints were this a little old and dated compared to some of the other models we looked at. At the time we tested this model was selling for $150, for that price you could have gotten Bluetooth connectivity on the Anova Sous Vide or WiFi connectivity on the Gourmia GSV150 Sous Vide. If that doesn’t matter to you, then this model is definitely worth considering.
