The Steba Sous Vide Stick

The Steba Sous Vide Stick, has a simple design, with a blue glowing display and black shining grip surface, with a light grain. The angled display is very comfortable for the user.


The stick can be easily and quickly attached to the container with a clamp. The container must have a minimum height of 15 cm in order for the stick to fit into the container. It sits movably but securely enough on the container.

With the touch screen the stick can be switched on and off, and you can choose between temperature or time. The values can be adjusted with a rotary control, which is difficult to turn and does not have enough grip area.
