Coming soon to the Adafruit Learning System: The Adafruit Sous Vide Controller. This project will turn an inexpensive rice cooker into a precision instrument for molecular gastronomy. The ultimate geek cooking tool.
Haddock Fillets with haricots verts and orange saffron sauce. (one of our favorites!)
We’ve been having a tasty good time putting this controller through its paces. From ‘perfect’ soft boiled eggs, to flaky fish fillets and succulent steaks. In our early tests, the PID control algorithm maintained cooking temperatures to within 0.2 degrees C. With a setpoint temperature of 56 degrees C, your nice thick steak will be a perfect medium rare from edge-to-edge, instead of medium-well on the outside and nearly raw in the middle.
Sirloin Tip-Strip with grilled zucchini. Even an inexpensive cut like this cooks up tender and juicy and perfectly medium rare from edge-to-edge.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
