The Allpax SV2 - Profi Sous Vide Thermostat has a simple design with an angled display and a black type of the settings. It is quite big and a bit bulky.

Application

The thermostat is clamped to the container with a fixing strap. This can be adjusted in height with a button and tightened with a screw. Because of this and because of its width, it sits firmly and securely in the container. The container must have a minimum height of 15 cm for the thermostat to fit into the container.

The thermostat switches on automatically as soon as the power plug of the device is plugged in.

On the top of the display the actual temperature of the water is shown, below the set temperature and below the set time. Temperature and time can be set with the +/- buttons next to the display. Use the button in the upper right corner to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit. Once you have made all the settings, place your vacuumed food in the water and press the start button. Once you have started the thermostat, the timer runs out, unlike the other sous-vide sticks, where the timer only starts when the target temperature is reached and only then the food is inserted. This ensures that you can set exactly the right cooking time and that the food is cooked continuously at the right temperature, which is not possible with this thermostat.

The display
The display is glowing in black and white

The thermostat needs 9:13 minutes to heat the room temperature warm water to the set temperature (test: 60°), which is comparatively quickly.

The cooking process can be stopped at any time with the stop button. As soon as the timer has passed, a signal tone sounds which does not switch off until the stop button is pressed. The thermostat maintains the temperature until you press the stop button.

The thermostat has a comfortable volume of 43 dBA.

Temperature maintenance

The thermostat is able to maintain the set target temperature with a deviation of +/- 0.1°. At the beginning, the temperature changes more strongly up to +/- 0.4°. After a few minutes, there are no higher changes than +/- 0.1°.

Functions

The thermostat has a temperature range from 5° to 99° and can be set in 0.1° steps. The time range is 0 to 99 hours and can be set in minute units.

The display shows both the actual temperature and the set temperature.

The end of the cooking process is announced by a signal tone. The thermostat must then be switched off as it does not stop heating by itself.
