  1. Hassouni, I think that the enzymes enable the release of moisture in the bananas. The semi dried apricots have less available moisture and may hold onto more product
  2. Did a Bananas Justino but added some amylase also got more product back than started with
  3. Just got my tracking number! Should be delivered by end of day tomorrow. Will hit the border either tomorrow or Saturday for pick up.
  4. May I enquire about your rotostator
  5. Kerry, i have blitzed isomalt in a vitamix. Powders imho very well and looks white. No pics as it was a month or so ago when making a cornbread
  6. It is an oil-less pump. The circulator is separately listed at $299. With a 1500 watt power usage if needed. The sealer is separately listed at $699. So the combo price is very good, basically buy the vac sealer and get a free circulator.
  7. Was browsing Webstaurant this pm and came across this. Effectively complete SV setup for $700. http://www.webstaurantstore.com/ary-vacmaster-vmasvp104-vacuum-packaging-machine-with-sous-vide-head-unit/120VMASVP104.html Haven't looked at the Ary vac sealer, so can not comment on deal worthiness.
  8. Shipping to Canada is normally about $80. So getting in at $129 means I'm getting the device for basically 50. Missed the opportunity to order two, even though already have a polyscience and anova v1. I like the idea of connectivity. It's a big throw down to polyscience.
  9. Matt, the boiling observed in a vacuum is not due to heat, so the meat is not cooked and the proteins are not denatured to the point of being "cooked". Meat thus packaged can be safely frozen and or cooked conventionally, or indeed sous vide. It certainly does not need to be thrown out.
  10. Enjoy it. Pretty much a permanent feature on my counter. My wife, who doesn't cook, even uses it! A successful purchase.
  11. Bump Alanjesq Just wondering how the oven is working out. Would like to hear about real world reviews Thx in advance
  12. Centigrade to Fahrenheit temp x1.8 + 32 Fahrenheit to Centigrade temp -32 / 1.8
  13. Wangjt They sent a tracking number, it was sent in the Wdnesday immediately after the old unit arrived
  14. Sent mine back on a Monday and had new unit by Friday. To and from Canada
  15. Step away from your wallet and definitely don't order the yellow submarine...
  16. The polyscience chef series is significantly louder, I own both. My wife has also commented on the differing volumes.
  17. Mjx thanks for the reply and the help. Raymond
  18. I have just taken delivery of the volumes, from Amazon. Shiny and new, but can not find any QR codes etc. Could someone kindly advise as to which volume I should be looking, or is there another esoteric method of registration. Thanks in advance Raymond
  19. At $299 they are competing with Nomiku and using their name. However, when I recommend a unit, currently recommend the Anova. I have both an Anova and a polyscience chef series. Anova is quieter, significantly so and every bit as accurate, just handles a slightly smaller bath size. Both are 1KW. Think that a 750W unit is under powered. Would have been better cutting the price on the creative series. IMHO Also note that they perhaps have been reading the Anova thread, they have specced it with an auto restart. A feature not available on the higher end units.
  20. Spent this afternoon blending the sauce. PH is 3.7 Will be bottling it later this week, final PH check at that time, if stable will not add any additional acid. Certainly packs some heat, dipped a tortilla chip in as a trial, one was more than adequate.
  21. Make sure that your volumes are correct as max capacity is 22L if your tank was over 2/3 full you would've been beyond that.
  22. I have the reference thermapen 2 digital places
  23. Temperature is spot on, compared to a reference thermapen pen reading 61.99-62C with bath set at 62C. Can't ask for better than that.
