I started with one of these: [^] and it worked very well - and then died. Sigh | :sigh:
The new one is different, it clamps onto a pot so what I'll probably do is see if it will clamp to the old one then cut a hole in the lid so I still get the insulation (and lack of humidity around it). It's a lot cheaper, but does have a good reputation.

You do need a vacuum sealer as well (I started with the ziplock ones and discarded that after the first use: waste of time) - I use one of these: FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer: Amazon.co.uk: Kitchen & Home[^] (but that model is discontinued) and get through around £40 of bag rolls per year. Expensive, but it does pay for itself in the long term as you can buy in the cheap season and vacuum seal it for the freezer where it lasts for about two years apparently. I also use it to make 1KG of mince into Chilli, or Bolognese, and bag'n'freeze it in "two person" portions. Stuff one in the sous vide to defrost and reheat and you've got a meal ready when you want it.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
