I am sorry not being able to answer to all your questions about the Swid but I am very busy at the moment. The best way to illustrate the precision, size and power of the pump is to watch the video I just made.

I didn’t have time to translate my comments in English but I am sure you’ll understand.
So far I am very satisfied of this appliance which is the most competitive immersion circulator of the market: EUR 449 EUR 475 incl. VAT and shipping costs.
Here is a comparision table of immersion circulators dedicated to sous vide.

The SWID – First images and impressions of Addélice Immersion Circulator dedicated to Sous Vide Cooking

by on Oct.21, 2009, under Equipments & Accessories

swid-addelice-thermal-immersion-circulator-cooker-equipment-appliance-sous-vide-4Two weeks ago, I have been contacted by Addélice who has proposed me to test their new immersion circulator dedicated to sous vide cookery.
I was honored by their proposal and, as you can imagine, I have accepted!

I received the Swid this morning and had only time to take some pictures before leaving. I am very excited to share my first impressions about this sous vide appliance!

I was very surprised by the size and the weight of the Swid. I had to give back the Julabo EC that was borrowed to me during summer holidays and therefore I can’t show you pictures to compare the 2 appliances. Nevertheless I took some pics to compare the Swid with the SousVideMagic.

The Swid is compact and can be stored easily in one of your kitchen draws. This is an excellent point.
The casing is amazing, very soft and sensual to the touch. The protection grid is part of the whole metal structure of the Swid. For the record a metal grid is always coming as an option with the other immersion circulator such as Polyscience and Julabo…The Swid grid as a funny design with holes like bubbles carved in the metal.

I didn’t have time to try it so far but my first feeling about the swid is excellent. I’ll come back to you as soon as I have a little bit more time.

SousVide Supreme – A water oven dedicated to sous vide

by on Oct.13, 2009, under Equipments & Accessories

sous-vide-supremeThe sous vide world is definitely very active those last days. FreshMealSolutions announced some weeks ago to work on the launch of a bubbler (the FreshMealsMagic), Addélice with its thermal immersion circulator (the Swid) will be launched soon and finally Eades Appliance Technology LLC indicates on its site the SousVide Supreme will be launched October 23rd.

The SousVide Supreme site shows a very nice video illustrating the use of this “water oven” dedicated to sous vide. Their not so many information about the technology and the precision of the appliance available on the site.  Nevertheless, watching the video you can see their is no integrated pump to mix the water inside the container. We don’t know the capacity of the container but in any case will be limited to a personal use.

What I like in this product is the price, USD 450 (launche price USD 399 – does it include the shipping costs?), the design is reassuring, feminine and reminds bread baker or French fries appliances. It should be noted that the SousVide Suprem comes with a praticale rack to hold pouches inside the water bath.

It seems the SousVide Supreme will be first available in the USA with 120 V specifications.

Addélice postponed for 2 weeks the launch of its thermal circulator dedicated to sous vide.

The so called “swid” will be at € 489 incl. VAT and shipping costs. Addélice mentioned on Twitter the introductory price will be at € 449 incl. VAT and shipping! Therefore the swid becomes the most competitive  immersion circulator available on the market (click here for a price comparison of immersion circulators). For the record the swid includes a metal protective shield usually provided as an option by other manufacturer. I had the confirmation that the swid is available on 240 V (European standard) but will be manufactured for the North American market (120 V) soon.
