Gourmia is partnering with Jason Logsdon to include his original sous vide recipes in the companion mobile app for iOS and Android. Jason Logsdon is a passionate home cook who loves to try new things, exploring everything from sous vide and whipping siphons to blow torches, foams, spheres and infusions. He has published nine cookbooks that have sold more than 45,000 copies in paperback and electronic formats. His books include "Modernist Cooking Made Easy: Sous Vide", a best seller that hit the number one spot on Amazon for both slow cooking and gourmet cooking. He also runs ModernistCookingMadeEasy.com, one of the largest modernist cooking websites.
"Gourmia brings simplicity to the world of sous vide cooking," commented Sam Ash, Gourmia chief marketing officer. "Our new Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled Sous Vide pod with mobile app connects cooks directly to their kitchen, giving them complete control, even if they are miles away. Featuring renowned German electronic engineering, the Gourmia sous vide pod is designed for ease of use, reliability, convenience, and functionality. We are especially excited to partner with Jason Logsdon to provide consumers with a variety of sous vide recipes to cook using the Gourmia pod."
"I'm very excited to be partnering with such an established kitchen appliance maker," said Jason Logsdon. "With my easy-to-follow recipes and Gourmia's sous vide machine any home cook can create amazing food that will impress their friends and family."
The Gourmia Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled Sous Vide Pod features a circular LCD display that shows both the current temperature of the water and the temperature the cooker is set to reach. There is also a start/stop button as well as a Wi-Fi indicator on the display. The 'set temperature' can be easily adjusted by the scroll wheel beneath the display. The pod has a built-in clip that attaches to the side of any container so you don't need a dedicated water oven in your kitchen. The advanced system circulates up to 1.5 gallons of perfectly heated water per minute, helping ensure temperature consistency. The unit may be used with or without the mobile app.
Perfect Sous Vide Results
From mouth-watering tender juicy meats, poultry, and fish, to flavorful garden-fresh vegetables, delicious eggs, and much more, sous vide meals turn out perfect every time. It prepares meals the healthiest way possible and without the need for high heat (which destroys nutrients), excessive seasoning (which often adds excess sodium), or added oils and fats.
With the water temperature held constant, there is never any overcooking if an item is left in the pot too long. Unlike other forms of cooking, where a minute can mean the difference between rare and well done, the margin of error is hours, not seconds.
Pricing and Availability
The Gourmia Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled Sous Vide Pod has an MSRP of $199.99 and will be available in three colors in Q3 2016.
