So, just like usual, we’re going to be reviewing one of these in this today’s article. You up for it? Then let’s get to it! In today’s article, we are going to review the Gourmia GSV900 Sous Vide Self Contained Circulating Water Oven.
This model from Gourmia is somewhat similar to the Gourmia GSV550, but yeah, it’s not the same. At first, I thought that they were almost the same but there are a few differences among them. Let us take a look at this model in detail today and we just might look at the differences sometime soon!
What are the main features of the Gourmia GSV900 Sous Vide?
The Gourmia GSV900 Sous Vide, as I just remarked, is a really nice model. And though it does seem like the GSV550 at first, it isn’t really so. This makes it really important to go into a detailed discussion about all the features. Because, as a different model, it has its very own unique set of features that you must know in order to know this model.
To write a proper review as well, it’s important to take into consideration all these features. So, the main features that the Gourmia GSV900 Sous Vide boasts of might be summed up in the following points:
- First of all comes the fact that this model is aesthetically advanced.It has a stainless steel body and that makes it look really nice. That’s excluding the great design that it has, making it look like a really beautiful model. But the stainless steel body also makes it much more durable in comparison to several other models.
- The simple fact that Gourmia makes it is enough to Guarantee quality on its part. However, if that were not enough, what about the stainless steel body? Well, it’s evident from all of these that this model surely does boast of a really high level of quality.
- Then comes the capacity of the model. The capacity of the model is a really important thing. In order to cook you must obviously be aware about how much you can cook. The capacity of this model is actually fairly large. In fact, it stands just slightly larger than the GSV550. This model boasts of a capacity of 10 Quarts, making it really easy for you to cook just enough food for your family using this model.
- And of course, the display system and interface that it has is one of a kind. It’s a really beautiful interface that’s super easy to operate at the same time. This makes this one of the simplest Sous Vide machines to operate out there. This is a really big thing and that earns this model quite a lot of points. So if you are looking for a simple machine to go for, this is one of those models that you simply must consider.
- Of course, this machine, like most others made for the American standard, runs on a voltage of 110-120. This is usually not common in other countries, so well, it’s hard to use them there. But for use here in the US, it’s super simple and super easy because it’s basically made for us!
- 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!
What are some of the main limitations of this model?
This model isn’t actually one of the models with too many drawbacks. However, this model does have some room for improvement too. And of course, we must study them to find out how it could have been the best model out there. We must also study them because those are the things that make a few people turn away from it.
So, the main places where it could have improved are as follows:
- First of all, this model has not used technology as much as it could have. It’s good that ti has such a nice and easy interface, but it must have also kept a technology option. This model has completely ignored that, making it a bad choice who want that ease of use as well.
- Next comes the fact that this model isn’t really cheap. Yes, it’s a good model and all, but it’s not cheap, this makes it hard or even impossible to buy for some people who are on a conservative budget.
- Besides, there’s also the problem of size. Since it’s a whole container, it needs a lot of size. This means that you can’t just use it as simply as the Sous Vide machines that don’t come as containers on their own. So yeah, you must be fine with the size if you wish to use it, as functional as it is.
Should I go for this model? What alternatives do I have?
Of course, you aren’t bound to go for this model. But I really think that this model is worth going for if only you’re fine with the size. Yes, it’s not tilted to technology, but good old interface never let anyone down now, did it?
Even an unique model like this one has some competing models. The main competing model, however, is it’s own half brother, the Gourmia GSV550. I think that would be the model you want to check out if you were considering this model.
