The Sous-vide powered by Arduino kit pack is the perfect gift for any Renaissance Dad who’s a whiz in both the kitchen and the workshop. With this kit, your Dad can assemble his own temperature controlled cooking environment that turns out some seriously delicious eats. It’s true what they say – food really does taste better when you make it (and the robot that conrols it) yourself!
Sous-vide powered by Arduino kit pack – The SousViduino!: This pack contains all the Adafruit parts required to try out our latest tutorial, the sous-vide powered by Arduino – a.k.a. the SousViduino! It doesn’t contain a rice cooker, you’ll need to pick that up as well, check the tutorial for suggestions on what to look for in a cooker.
This kit pack comes with:
- Arduino UNO R3
- Positive RGB LCD Shield for Arduino kit
- Proto-Screwshield for making easy connections to the Arduino pins
- Food safe heat shrink for the temperature sensor
- Power-switch tail: a safer way of controlling ~120VAC appliances from a microcontroller
- High-temperature waterproof DS18B20 sensor
- Servo extension cable to allow easy connection & disconnection of the sensor
- 2 pin JST plug and socket for making a connection to the PST
Some soldering is required to assemble the RGB LCD Shield and the Screwshield. You’ll need a soldering iron, some solder and diagonal cutters. This project will take a few hours to complete, it’s a great weekend project and testing it is delicious! Please be sure to read our full tutorial before purchasing so you can see what it takes to build this project – we suggest this is for people who have some experience with Arduino programming and soldering.
Please note: Cooking with sous-vide is an advanced technique that uses low temperatures to cook food. Doing so can introduce food-safety issues if not performed correctly. Douglas Baldwin has an excellent guide to temperatures/times requirements for meats, eggs, and seafood. Please read his guide and use care when cooking sous-vide!
