Adafruit Sous-vide powered by Arduino kit pack - The SousViduino!
Adafruit Product Code: 1401
This pack contains all the Adafruit parts required to try out our latest tutorial, the sous-vide powered by Arduino - a.k.a. the SousViduino! It doesn't contain a rice cooker, you'll need to pick that up as well, check the tutorial for suggestions on what to look for in a cooker.
This kit pack comes with:
- Arduino UNO R3
- Positive RGB LCD Shield for Arduino kit
- Proto-Screwshield for making easy connections to the Arduino pins
- Food safe heat shrink for the temperature sensor
- Power-switch tail: a safer way of controlling ~120VAC appliances from a microcontroller
- High-temperature waterproof DS18B20 sensor
- Servo extension cable to allow easy connection & disconnection of the sensor
- 2 pin JST plug and socket for making a connection to the PST
Some soldering is required to assemble the RGB LCD Shield and the Screwshield. You'll need a soldering iron, some solder and diagonal cutters. This project will take a few hours to complete, it's a great weekend project and testing it is delicious! Please be sure to read our full tutorial before purchasing so you can see what it takes to build this project - we suggest this is for people who have some experience with Arduino programming and soldering.
Please note: Cooking with sous-vide is an advanced technique that uses low temperatures to cook food. Doing so can introduce food-safety issues if not performed correctly. Douglas Baldwin has an excellent guide to temperatures/times requirements for meats, eggs, and seafood. Please read his guide and use care when cooking sous-vide!
