Sous Vide Cooking

The swid by addélice – A full immersion circulator at €449 incl. shipping!

by on Aug.20, 2009, under Equipments & Accessories


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.

The swid features disclosed by addélice are:

- 2,000 Watt heating power
- Circulation pump
- Built-in cooking timer
- Acoustic and optical alarms
- Adaptive PID algorithm
- Microprocessor-controlled
- Protective grid, low water level protection, overheating protection, max. cooking time limiter

    I was looking to a thermal circulator to buy and the addelice product seems interesting. The thing I don’t understand is why their is such a gap in price compared to a Julabo or a Polyscience circulator?

    You are right, this is amazing. Maybe addélice found a way to manufacture an immersion circulator in a cheaper way. For example Julabo an Polyscience products are lab products made to heating liquids at very high temperatures (150°C for example). Such function is useless for cooking sous vide as water is boiling at 100°C…

    See, an all-in-one PID-controlled water bath for USD 449 (or USD 399 for early orders). It is said to be stable to ±0.5°C (with a SousVideMagic ±0.1°C is feasible).
