Good and fast stick, which only decreases a little in its volume.

The Klarstein Sous Vide Cooker worked perfectly apart from a slightly delayed reaction of the display. The stick reaches the cooking temperature in a very short time and manages to maintain the target temperature with only minimal deviation. But it is a bit louder than the other sticks.
The Klarstein Sous Vide Cooker has a simple design, with an angled display and a simple blue lighted display. The time and temperature display is kept quite small and may not be so easy to read.
The stick can be fastened securely to the container by a simple clamp, the container must have a minimum height of 20 cm, so that the stick fits in its length into it.
With a touch screen on the display, the device can be switched on and you can select between the settings. A wheel in front of the device allows you to set the temperature and time. The presets are quick and easy to use.
The stick needs 9.43 minutes to heat the room temperature warm water to the set target temperature (test: 60°). This happens quite fast with the Klarstein Stick. When the target temperature is reached, a beep sounds to remind the user to add the food. This only ends when the SET button is pressed and then the entered cooking time starts. You need to make sure that the SET button is pressed for a long time, during the test the stick reacted very late to the press.
The stick is slightly louder with a volume of 48 dBA.
With a small deviation of +/- 0.1°, the stick manages to maintain the required temperature.
The stick has a temperature range from 0° to 95° and can be adjusted in 0.5° steps. The time range is 0 to 59:59 hours, which can be set to the minute.
The display shows both the selected cooking time and the current time.
A beep signal tone indicates that the set cooking temperature has been reached and that the timer has elapsed. Finally, the stick itself must be switched off; it does not stop heating by itself.

How long is the warranty period for the device?
The warranty period of the Klarstein Quickstick Sous-Vide Cooker is 2 years.
What is the difference between "Set Time" and "Working Time"?
With "Set Time" you set the requested working time. "Working Time" only shows how much working time has been passed already.
Can I use this device to cook large pieces of meat weighting approx. 2.0 kg?
Yes, the circulation pump circulates the food from all sides and the heating power is sufficiently high.
Can I operate the stick on a pot with a lid?
The Sous Vide thermos balls are more practical than a lid, because they adapt very well to the vessel and prevent the evaporation well. A normal pot does not have a recess for the stick in its lid, therefore a pot specially adapted for the Sous-Vide-Stick would be necessary.
