    I'm not a foodie. My first "hope chest" item I got was a cast iron skillet. I was the last on my block to get a microwave (and it was a gift from MIL), and I look at toasters with a skeptical eye, so I'm not sure I'd be into this gadget.

    But I will ask my foodie DH what sous vide means. And because he knows food but not French I'll have to make it rhyme with "louse ride." And then I'll get a great explanation.

    Ha ha, and if he knows, share it with me please. I'm another non-foodie who hasn't a clue. (I think I looked it up once but have since forgotten)

    Gotta love Google:

    What is Sous Vide?
    Sous vide, which means “under vacuum” in French, refers to the process of vacuum-sealing food in a bag, then cooking it to a very precise temperature in a water bath. This technique produces results that are impossible to achieve through any other cooking method.

    Makes me think of "boil in bag" rice.

    I've only seen it used on meat. After its bath, it's seared on both sides. It's said to be a superior method for that purpose.

    Wow, the price difference, for something I considered buying, as a larger crockpot (I have my grandmothers old one, and sometimes I want to cook larger stuff, but haven't yet).
    This seems to have so many of the same features:
    Emeril Lagasse 8-Quart Pressure Air Fryer Duet

    And I can buy it at Sam's club, for $150 or less.

    There are several different kinds of these all-in-one appliances now. How are the reviews?

    I decided to splurge and get a box of pre-cut parchment paper, which will probably improve my quality of life more :-)
