This DorkFood DSV Temperature Controller slow cooker accessory was designed to make it easy to cook foods sous-vide—a method that involves cooking food sealed in an airtight plastic bag submerged in water for an extended period of time.

Although there are a number of specialty kitchen appliances specifically for cooking sous-vide, this DorkFood accessory makes it possible to turn an ordinary crock pot, rice cooker or bucket heater into a high-tech machine for a fraction of the cost. In addition to saving a ton of space in the kitchen, this device makes it possible to indulge in a variety of vacuum-packed foods that you may have only eaten in restaurants prior to discovering this handy device.
