A sous vide machine is one of my best gift picks for anyone you know who likes to cook, and especially for anyone you know who likes to cook for you. Traditionally giant, cumbersome, and expensive temperature-controlled water bath machines suitable really only for professional kitchens, the past couple of years have seen several attempts to make the immersion circulators smaller and more accessible to home cooks. Because not only do people swear that meat, fish, eggs, and vegetables taste a million times more juicy and texturally perfect when cooked in a bag underwater, but once you have a reliable sous vide machine, executing the sous vide method is kind of a piece of cake succulent, edge-to-edge-even 125-degree steak.

Sansaire has simplified sous vide for the home with the stick you see here. It sits inside a water-filled pot or large container you already own, and heats the bath up to the exact temperature you'd like your food to be when you eat it. Then it gently swirls the water around to maintain that temperature for as long as it's submerged. The circulating water bath ensures foods cook evenly throughout and reach the precise doneness desired. Plus, since the Sansaire makes sure the bath doesn't deviate from its set temperature (i.e., it won't get hotter or colder) you can leave your food in the pool until you're read to eat it. It won't overcook or get all pruney, or experience Costanza-style shrinkage.
