SousVide Supreme Wins Prestigious 2011 Housewares Design Award

Innovative SousVide Supreme Recognized by HomeWorld Business and the International Housewares Association as Best in Category for Cooking Electrics

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - Eades Appliance Technology (EAT) today announced its SousVide Supreme™ water oven was awarded "Best in Category for Cooking Electrics" at the 2011 Housewares Design Awards. Each year HomeWorld Business, with educational support from the International Housewares Association, presents the Houseware Design Awards, with winners selected in each category from hundreds of houseware products. Out of more than 350 "Cooking Electrics" entries, the SousVide Supreme was awarded Best in Category based on its innovative design and technology, performance, and market response.

Of note:

  • Design: The compact, modern design is sleek and stylish with a smooth stainless steel finish. As the world's first water oven designed for home use, the SousVide Supreme is similar in size to a bread maker, yet has all the power of a commercial machine. In addition, the ingenious lid doubles as a drip tray to assist in opening and transporting the vacuum-sealed pouches.

  • Technology & Performance: SousVide Supreme's patent-pending technology maintains temperature to within one degree Fahrenheit, which is the key to sous vide success. The machine's technology relies on convection currents to regulate temperature, rather than circulating water, which makes for a much smaller and quieter water oven. In addition, the SousVide Supreme boasts an easy-to-use interface for the end user to set the temperature and timer.

  • Market Response: Consumer demand has been very strong; a key factor is that the SousVide Supreme costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars less than commercial ovens, which had largely limited the technique to restaurants and commercial kitchens. Now, foodies and everyday cooks alike can cook sous vide, creating gourmet meals at the push of a button every time!

"We stumbled upon sous vide cooking while traveling, and were so impressed with it, we set out to cook sous vide at home only to find there was no product on the market that made this easy and accessible," said Dr. Mary Dan Eades, co-founder of EAT, developer of the SousVide Supreme, and a respected nutrition expert and author. "Our goal was to create a compact design, at a more affordable price point to bring this celebrated cooking technique to homes everywhere. We're honored to be recognized by the International Housewares Association, as another stamp of approval as we continue to build the sous vide cooking category through the SousVide Supreme brand."

The SousVide Supreme is the sleek, countertop water oven that simplifies what was once a complex culinary technique, making it practical for all cooks. Sous vide cooking originated in France, and has been a favored technique of gourmet chefs worldwide, yet it was generally limited to upscale restaurants and commercial kitchens due to the complexity and high costs of the cooking equipment.

The sous vide technique involves vacuum-sealing food in airtight pouches, then simmering the pouches in a low-temperature water bath with a precisely maintained temperature throughout the cooking duration. With this method, food is gently cooked to perfection from edge to edge, flavor and texture are enhanced, nutrients are locked in, and users can prepare perfect gourmet-quality meals every time, without fail.

EAT also recently introduced to the market a smaller version of their award-winning SousVide Supreme ($399.95 on www.sousvidesupreme.com), the SousVide Supreme Demi ($299.95 on www.sousvidesupreme.com), available in five colors. SousVide Supreme water ovens, along with SousVide Supreme vacuum sealers, cookbooks, seasonings and bags, can be purchased at www.sousvidesupreme.com.
