DIY Sous Vide: Cook perfect steaks and more with Arduino-inspired electronics!

Build a magical box with Arduino inspired technology that will control the temperature of an appliance you hack up to 0.1 degrees accuracy. 

All of the top restaurants in the world use sous vide machines to make make sure their proteins are perfect. It is a brilliant cooking strategy for so much more and it's been hailed as the next microwave.

(It's right before dinner time, and I went checked out our teacher's website and now I'm drooling. Keywords include: "Beer Bath Bratwurst" and "60 Hour Sweet and Sticky Beef Ribs"!! Q and Abe also taught an Ember class at NYC Resistor you can read about here!)

On Saturday October 15th, come and make your own sous vide machines with experienced food hackers, Q and Abe, from, and In our class we will guide beginners from soldering to Arduino language and programming. Perfectly cooked snacks will be served. 

Q and Abe are experts in the field of DIY Sous Vide and Open Source Technology. Their invention and foods have been featured on FoodGawker, CNN,  Maker Faire, and TasteSpotting.

Time: 1 to 6 PM, Saturday, October 15th

Taught by: Q (writer) and Abe (plasma physicist)

Workshop fee: $115, Includes an Ember Kit ($80) to make your own "meat jacuzzi"

    I had a good time. The instructors helped me get my controller up and going and even patched it into an extension cord for it. Lots of help with the assembly.

    (Better prep would have been good. Instructions should have been printed out ahead of time and there weren't enough soldering irons and wire cutters at the beginning. Next time, have a "if you have..., please bring it" note for the class.)

    Happiness: your wonderful sous vide class was picked up on O'Reilly Radar this morning

    Sounded awesome. Sorry I missed it! We'll have to do something like this again ;p

    As a total novice I felt very comfortable in class. My only recommendation would be for better preparation for handouts and materials. I really liked how the teachers rotated around the room and were very accessible. I also enjoyed the people that I met there too.

    Looks be damned, I'm looking for maximum functionality.

    It should be possible, but it might be a pain to hook up the thermistor to the box. If you're not concerned about the appearance, just buy an extension cord that can handle 10 A.

    The Ember kit looks like it has to be wired into another device. Is it possible to let it accept a plug? (If so, I'd be happy to bring extra parts to make that happen if you let me know what to buy.)
