Gourmia is always the first to come up with unique models. These are unique in several ways. For example, the GSV550 and the GSV900 are unique for being entire containers by themselves that need no assistance.
If you know this, you must be waiting for a model by now that’s unique in case of functionality. Guess what, this model does that for you. It brings to you an unique level of functionality. In fact, it’s so functional that it’s barely a Sous Vide anymore- it’s an entire Multi Cooker!
So, for today’s article, we are going to review it. You up for it? Then let’s get started!
What are the main features because of this model?
This model by Gourmia is unique in terms of functionality, as I just said. But that’s nothing if you don’t know what it exactly offers and what the negative points about it are. Well, don’t worry because we are going to tal kabout those too, obviously. So well, let us begin by discussing what this model exactly brings to you.
So, the main features of this model might be summed up as follows:
- First of all, this model is actually a full container just like the Gourmia GSV550. Most Sous Vide machines aren’t a container but rather a stick like or a tube like device. This one is not so. This one, as I just said, is actually a full mechanized container which does your job. So you don’t need anything else to come with it since it’s all that there is to it.
- Next comes the fact that it’s much more functional than several other models. Since it’s a full container, it has a much improvised circuit system making it far more functional and versatile than other machines, a lot of points go to it in that aspect.
- This device is also able to boast of a beautiful display. It has a really nice digital display system that makes it really simple to keep an eye out on the process as well as the settings that it’s having right then. The display of this system is often compared to the display of the Instant Pot Accu SV800 Sous Vide.
- And of course, you can select the exact temperature that you want. This makes it a really good thing actually. In other cases in some devices such as the T-fal ActiFry Air Fryer, you can’t control it. This makes you unable to cook several things because the given temperature is too high or low for it. So, well, yeah, this makes this device a lot more versatile, even more than it already was!
- And of course, it is certified as a really safe model. Safety, you must be aware, is one of the most importnat things for any model and any device. So, this is one of the things that are absolutely vital. This one ensures that. Quoting Amazon

- And this model is by far one of the most functionally advanced models when it comes to Sous Vide machines. In fact while it is a Sous Vide, it isn’t ONLY a Sous Vide. It’s actually a multi-cooker. When I first saw it, I thought it must be a multi-functional electric pressure cooker but then I found that it’s even more! So well, should you choose to go with this modle, functionality is one of the things you can rest assured.
What are some of the negative points for this product?
Any model, like any person, can never be perfect. But that doesn’t mean that can’t be better than what it is. This model, like all others, has some points that you must know of. These points are the ones that usually make prospective customers look for alternatives. This makes it even more important to know them and study them well before you decide to go for this model.
So, the main features that people dislike about this model are as follows:
- One thing is the complexity of use. Yes, the interface is simple to use but it’s just crammed with so many functions that isn’t easy to use actually. When it comes to using it, it requires at least a little experience to get everything going smoothly or to use the slightly complicated functions. This is one of the things that this model could do some work with.
- Another thing is the price of the model. While not as expensive as the Sous Vide Supreme Water oven, this model is still quite expensive. This makes it hard to afford for people on a conservative budget, this making it a negative point.
Is this model worth it?
This model is a super functional model. It provides you with a really high level of efficiency and even uniqueness since it belongs to the Gourmia line of products.
If only you can put up with the basic problems at first and are willing to pay what it costs, well, I guess it’d be a nice choice. I personally think that this model is worth going for.
What are some of the alternative models you might go with?
Well, there are quite a few alternatives you might go with. Some of the mare as follows:
- Gourmia GSV140 Immersion Sous Vide Pod
- Instant Pot Accu SV800 Sous Vide Immersion Circulator
- Gourmia GSV550 9 Qt Sous Vide Water Oven Cooker
- Gourmia GSV900 Sous Vide Self Contained Circulating Water Oven
