Resumee

The Profi Cook Sous Vide Stick isn't satisfying in its handling and function. The handling is a bit incomprehensible, reaching the cooking temperature takes comparatively long and there are quite large deviations from the target temperature. It wins as the most quiet stick in the volume range, but loses in the other points.

Pro

  • Very quite

Cons

  • Unusual operation of controller and touch screen
  • Slow heating
  • Larger deviations in temperature maintenance

The Profi Cook Sous Vide Stick

The Profi Cook Sous Vide Stick has a simple and modern design. The temperature and time display glows in a classic blue and the matt black grip surface is pleasant to touch.

Application

The device can be easily and securely attached to the container with a clamp, which must have a minimum height of 16 cm so that the stick fits into the container in its length.

Temperature and time settings can now be made using a rotary knob and touch screen. Operation may be confusing at first, as the knob must be turned counterclockwise to raise and clockwise to lower. The touch screen can also be irritating to operate, as different press lengths must be used to switch the stick on and off. But once you've got it, it's easy and uncomplicated to continue using the stick.

The stick needs 18.22 minutes to heat the room temperature warm water to the required temperature (test: 60°). The stick has a volume of 40 dBA during use and is therefore very pleasant, especially since it will sometimes be used for several hours at a time.

Temperature maintenance

The stick manages to maintain the required temperature with a deviation of up to +1.7°.

Functions

The stick has a temperature range of 0° to 90° and can be adjusted in 0.5° steps. During this time, the range is from 0 to 99 hours, which can be set to the minute.

A beep indicates that the target temperature has been reached.

Does the appliance remember the set temperature and cooking time after disconnection of the power supply?

Yes, the last set temperature and time are retained even after disconnection from the power supply.

Is it possible to set a start time e.g. 5 pm start with two hours cooking time?

Unfortunately, the appliance does not have a start time, but only a cooking time that starts immediately after the setting.

How many litres is the appliance made for?

It doesn't matter. The appliance must be able to immerse deep enough and circulate the water.
