It isn’t cheap though, and carrying a recommended retail price of $799.95, this is not for the casual chef. Rather, such a big investment also means a constant purchasing of vacuum sealing bags, as most of the food you put into the water bath will be vacuum sealed. That said, it does come with a vacuum sealer (the Breville Fresh Keeper) and a grilling plate (Breville Thermal Pro Grill) making it a little more than just the water bath itself.

In essence, think just under a thousand dollars roughly tothis into your home. If cooking things perfectly without any effort is worth that to you, you’ll find the Breville Sous Vide Supreme in stores.

UPDATE (June 24): The good people at Breville have let us know that the Sous Vide Supreme kit for $799 is exactly that – a kit – and thus comes with the Sous Vide unit, a vacuum sealer, and a grilling plate, so we’ve updated our article.
