I heard about it on the radio and sounds good but I would expect it to
be pricey and you still have to prepare and cook what they send you.

Cooking doesn't get any easier or more delicious than sous vide.

". To cook sous vide, food is placed in a sealable bag and cooked in a

I don't see how you can get a broiled steak, broiled hamburger, broiled
chicken, fried fish when something is in a bag in a water bath.
My mother used to boil hotdogs until I talked her into pan-frying them
(no oil needed) and they were a lot better.
Is yummy and anova the same thing?
There *are* things meant to be made in the oven that I microwave.
Doesn't come out the same but I consider it an alternate recipe.
Microwaved fish doesn't have the broiled exterior but the fish is the
same afaict and good. I can't think of other examples now.
I don't think my micorwave is broken but I have to cook things less than
the low end of the suggested cooking time to get what I want.
Some sous vide users absolutely rave about it. I have no experience
I don't see how either, but I've been told by some that once the meat
is cooked by sous vide, it is then brownede/broiled/fried after the
fact. I can't see that happening to fried fish. I once cnsidered
buying sous vide equipment, but knowing how I prefer to cook, figured
I would use it once or twice and then shelve it.
Pan frying or broiling hot digs are better methods than boiling, IMO.
We bought a Johnsonville sausage cooker to quickly cook and brown
sausages, and it works with hot dogs too. Removable cooking plates
go right in the dishwasher. The sausages brown better than on the
I use my microwave every day, but I never use it to cook meat, fish,

What is the wattage of your microwave? Ours is 1350Watts. When a
recipew calls for "full power" I have to set mine to power level 8
instead of 10. Power level 1 will still allow some foods to simmer.

My mother probably learned from her mother, who probably learned from
her mother around 1900 in eastern Europe. I think they were fairly well
off but the gas broiler probably had not been invented yet. Of course
pans had been invented, and fire too.
I think she liked it better that way too. I was imitating carnivals or
some place I'd seen it done.
I like meat rare and sometimes I take the food out of the broiler before
it's ready and I might finish cooking it in the mw. So the outside
browning has already taken place.
The first mw I had, a Model 2, Amana Radarrange, I cooked beef in a few
times and it was terrible. But with all the later mws, it was just
mediocre. I wonder what the difference was.
Chicken too came out terrible with that first mw. Now it comes out fine
except the skin is not crisp and that's the best part of a chicken.
I thought they only went up to 1100. But if yours is bigger mine might
be too. I think the label is in the back so it will take a while to
I don't know the rating becuase i didn't buy it. I was at someoone's

melted some plastic in it, and even though I guess she'd cleaned it and
there was no sign of that anymore, she thought it was in the air vents,
iirc, and was afraid to cook with it for the children because she
thought the plastic would be bad for them. I didn't try to talk her out
of that because it seemed hopeless, what do I know-she might be right,
and they already had another one. She said I could have it.
I ran it for 10 minutes with a bowl of water in it and declared it
repaired. Occasionally I would wonder if she was smarter than I was
and I was going to die a painful death 10 years from then, but I got
I have different power levels too. I should see if 1 makes anything
I always use 10 because I have no patience -- and I manage to plan and
defrost in advance. If I haven't I eat something else.
When it comes to speed settings in a microwave, faster is not always
FWIW, I like my beef cooked medium, pork and fowl cooked completely
but not dried out, and fish always fried and of course completely
As I said before, I never cook meat, fowl, or fish in the microwave,
so discussiong it is a moot point.
I use my microwave to cook many things and the speed I use is always
appropriate to whatever I'm cooking.
In recipes you cannot always rely on what microwave setting is
advised since they vary considerably.
~~ If there's a nit to pick, some nitwit will pick it. ~~
Better to run the microwave oven on lower power for many things other
wise something like a cup of water will heat unevenly and bump and blurp
out the contents.
Frozen pizza can be thawed in one minute on high but tastes much better
for a few minutes at half power.
I like the microwave for heating things up but not cooking them.
Personal preference I guess.
I usually put a cut of meat and some kind of sauce/marinade into the bag, cook for a few hours and it comes out delicious every time. Takes maybe 2 minutes to assemble the sauce and then 2-3 hours to cook though I usually let it cook a min of 5 hours.
For hot dogs, maybe try something as quick and simple as a pack of hotdogs slitted lengthwise and cooked in your favorite barbecue sauce.
