Another World Market deal, looks like pickup in store only, out of stock online, is two kinds of Italian canned tomatoes La Fiammante, I couldn't get the whole peeled ones locally, but got the diced ones for the pantry.  Anyone have experience with this brand?

I have several of their knives. Good quality, comfortable to hold (for me - I know this is a personal thing), good price.

 

It just came.  Nice knife!  Feels good in my hand.

Costco online is having a sale for St. Michel La Grand Galette cookies.  4 boxes for the price of one elsewhere, tax and shipping included.   They are buttery, sweet but not overly so, salty but not overly so.  Good with tea, coffee, or cold, cold milk.  I suppose they would make a killer crust on a creamy dessert.   They have long shelf life due to the cracker like consistency.

The Instant Pot Ultra, 6 Quart size, has just dropped to $84.77 on Amazon (USA). This cooker, with its apparent fine-tune capability of temperature settings, would have been my preference over the more standard Instant Pot back when I was buying, but I thought the price too high. Now I'm not feeling flush enough to spring for it even at $85 - but it's a heck of a good price.

Just a thought @Smithy, you might mention this in the Paragon thread.  Thankfully the spare Paragon boxes take up less living room space than the CSO.

 

 

Sure, I'll do that. I'll let you mention the smaller box size for backups, though. :D

 

I'll mention here that the Instant Pot Ultra 6 quart multicooker is now at Amazon for $83.77. I've been enjoying mine and posting about it over here. I think the extra flexibility of the Ultra makes it a far better unit than the Duo, and this is a heck of a good price.

Would these be considered good deals? I’d like to try SV out but don’t want to invest a ton.

Absolutely. I love putting it on keep warm and setting the temp between 160 - 175, setting the timer for 99.5 hours, and putting on the glass lid for a multi-day slow-cooker.

Not knowing anything about the brand, I'd be inclined to give the sealer a fair try.  But for a circulator I'd stick with anova (just not the anova nano).

 

Joule maybe, if you like to fiddle with your phone.

We might need to see some specs on the circulator before being able to answer. Is it this one? If so, then its 1200 watts sounds like a pretty good deal, but you can get it for $49.99 on Amazon and that's a better price. If it's another one then you might be better served spending an extra $30 for the Anova Nano which is only 750 watts but isn't restricted by the built-in clamp of the NutriChef. (@Shelby has a Gourmia? iGourmia? circulator, I think, with such a clamp. Maybe she can say whether it's a nuisance.)

 

That vacuum sealer price is a good one if the unit works, but I must say that I don't use my vacuum sealer much for sous vide. As often as not I use Ziplock-style bags that I can seal, wash thoroughly afterward and reuse. I admit that I find it absurdly fun to use my FoodSaver and watch the air get sucked out of the bag, but for sous vide purposes I generally use the displacement method: squeeze out a fair amount of the air, close the bag most of the way, submerge it while keeping the opening above water, let the water compress the bag so the rest of the air comes out. Going without the vacuum sealer is even more money saved. Incidentally, if you intend to sous vide something with liquid (a marinade, say, or oil) inside the bag, the liquid will almost certainly get sucked into the vacuum sealer and wreck it. That's another reason I've gone to the displacement method.

 

Edited to add: while I was typing this, JoNorvelleWalker raised the same question I did about the wattage. As her post indicates, the Nano hasn't gotten much love around here. It is, however, the least expensive of the Anova line.

That's another reason to go with a chamber vacuum sealer.

I'd do that if I were interested in investing "a ton of money" (she isn't, yet) and if I had a place to put it. Running out of space in the overflow pantries, and not ready yet to give up the guest room! :D

Not sure but she probably has more space than my one bedroom apartment.
