When I saw this new product online I was instantly draw in by the sleek design and this new term “Sous Vide.” That phase seemed to be mentioned over and over again on the home page. Sous vide is a way of slow cooking food in water to give you food that maintains is integrity and preserving the flavors, vitamins and minerals. It’s also been use by high end restaurants and professional chefs for many years. This new product, Mello combines a cutting edge design with some amazing technology that allows you to control the cooking of your food while away from home in an app! Cook it, cool it and eat it when you get home! I’m already in love.

Why Cook the Sous Vide Way?
Sous-vide means “under vacuum” in French, and if you go on Wikipedia, you’ll find out there’s plenty of arguments on what sous-vide is or isn’t, and how should or should not be done.
For us, sous-vide is a way to cook food with such precision that we get results we could never get otherwise. Instead of steaming a filet of salmon and overcooking most of it, we cook it at the exact temperature it needs to be to fit our taste.
Many great restaurants rely on sous-vide to make the food we love. We’re here because we think sous-vide needs to be better designed to be perfect for home cooking (source).
My main concern for this device was actually space since my kitchen doesn’t have a lot of counter space. If you have the same concerns, here are the specs.
Height: 16 inches (40.6 cm)
