    I am just curious to know if anyone on this site has built there own sous vide machine.  I read the seattle food geek blog, who I believe came up with the first blue prints for one, and really want to try it out.  I really don't have the time with my new position in all.  So have you built one?

    I recall reading that someone in UK had crowd funded a DIY sous vide that uses a rice cooker and then you fix their special temperature controller.  I gave them my email for further information when it is available.    I guess you still need to invest in a vacuum sealer.
