Cooking is an art and these appliances will help you make your Mona Lisa.
Sous vide, which means “under vacuum” in French, refers to the process of vacuum-sealing food in a bag, then cooking it to a very precise temperature in a water bath. This method ensures maximum tenderness and moisture retention — without worry of overcooking.
"A sous vide cooker. Any brand with loads of good reviews is fine. This is the perfect cooking method for anyone who is concerned about food safety but doesn't enjoy overcooked food. You submerge your meat (or veggies) in a water bath, which is held at a time and temperature that allows you to safely kill any harmful bacteria while being physically unable to overcook your food since you're often cooking in the 130-145F range." —frontrow333

"I don’t know life without a Pizzazz. My friends make fun of me, but they still heat up their entire kitchen preheating a stove for one frozen pizza. My pizza is done by the time they put theirs in the oven. So who is the smart one? Plus, it cooks any frozen premade food. Taquitos? Pizzazz. Frozen chicken patties? Pizzazz. Oh, you want fries with that patty? Pi-freaking-zzazz. The moral is: Get a Pizzazz and change your life." —Evan M.
