Traditionally used in restaurants, Sous Vide cooking is a method by which food is sealed in bags and cooked in a water bath, then allowed to slowly cook at a precise, consistent temperature. This method has been steadily gaining in popularity in households across the country, and now Home Hardware’s Kuraidori Sous Vide Precision Cooker has made sous vide more accessible than ever.

The Kuraidori Sous Vide Precision Cookerfeatures an LCD display, PTC heating core, a convenient timer function. It easily clamps to the side of a large pot and features a removable body for easy cleaning.

If you or someone you know would love an air fryer this holiday season, Canada’s #1 low-oil fryer might just be the right addition to your shopping list. Enjoy the flavour and texture of fried foods without all of the oil that goes with it. The T-Fal Actifry combines hot air with an automatic stirring paddle to cook food evenly with a faction of the oil used by traditional fryers. This provides you with a more satisfying fried food experience than other units that use no oil at all.
