Gourmet tasting sessions taking place at 10:30am, 12:30pm and 3:00pm on 4-5 September.

The SousVide Supreme water oven was the first self-contained sous vide cooking appliance designed specifically for home cooks. Launched in the U.S. in 2009, the product benefited from tremendous interest and support amongst professional chefs, nutritional experts and media thanks to its ease of use, trusted precision temperature control and unrivalled cooking results. The SousVide Supreme product line soon developed into a complete range of modern state-of-the-art cooking equipment, with two additional precise temperature-controlled sous vide water oven models (the compact SousVide Supreme Demi and professional grade SousVide Supreme Chef), a range of vacuum sealers, cooking pouches, cookbooks and accessories.

The SousVide Supreme product line is carried by leading national U.K. retailers such as Lakeland and John Lewis, major department stores Harrods and Selfridges, as well as select independent high street and online retailers. The SousVide Supreme website is seeing a 62% surge in traffic over last year, highlighting a major step up in interest in the category and in the SousVide Supreme product line.

Matthew Canwell, UK Buying Director at retailer Lakeland says, "The incredible and ever-growing popularity of television cookery shows has really sparked an interest in sous vide cooking. We'd looked at sous vide machines over the years, and finally found the perfect one with the SousVide Supreme Demi - a perfectly sized, compact machine at a great price that enables our customers to create the same professional results in their own homes."

The success of the SousVide Supreme appliance is largely thanks to its proprietary precision temperature control technology that guarantees home cooks the superb texture and taste results that previously only professional sous vide chefs could deliver. Food is cooked safely and to specific temperatures throughout the cooking process without the need to manage tricky external components or continually check manual temperature gauges. The easy to use push button interface and sleek, modern design of the SousVide Supreme water oven have opened the category to all home cooks including novices.

Barbara Westfield, Director, Strategic Development, SousVide Supreme said, “Today home cooks can enjoy easy hassle-free sous vide cooking with our intuitive self-contained product. It’s compact, sleek, and looks great in any kitchen.” She continued, “Our online community is extremely buoyant with over 300,000 YouTube views and our passionate Facebook and Twitter following has rapidly expanded globally too, with fans regularly sharing their recipes, meal ideas and daily feedback.”

Alex Shannon, CEO of leading European online retailer, Sous Vide Tools, says, SousVide Supreme products have taken off in Europe this past year and show no sign of slowing down. No other home cooking device can offer the unrivalled taste, superior nutrition and cost efficiencies of the SousVide Supreme. Independent high street retailers are specifically requesting our sous vide equipment and fast placing re-orders, proving it’s here to stay and becoming a must-have kitchen appliance.”

Danish retailer Kitchen Tech was amazed at how fast the word spread, from being a completely new category one and a half years ago to now being "the hottest topic when it comes to cooking. We've been featured in several magazines, online and offline, and sales have gone through the roof! Most of our customers write to us, telling us how amazed they are", says Ronnie Plindstrup, Kitchen Tech CEO and partner.

“The interest in sous vide cooking is gaining momentum world-wide, as people learn about the technique from online communities, TV cooking shows, world-class chefs like Heston Blumenthal and such landmark cookery books as Modernist Cuisine. Our product continues to benefit from rave reviews from media and positive word of mouth from consumers and we look forward to driving the category into further global markets in the coming year”, says Eades Appliance Technology Founder and CEO, Michael R. Eades.
