Review of the Sansaire Sous Vide Immersion Circulator


Unlike other popular models on the market, you may have not yet heard of the Sansaire circulator or maybe you just don't take it as a serious tool.  Is Sansaire worth the price, is it a good product? 

There are many questions to be answered.  I think that the lack of its visibility is to do with the lack of features that Sansaire offers in comparison to other sous vide machines.  Never the less, it does have its purpose in the kitchen.  The Sansaire sous vide machine is a durable plastic circulator meant to do one thing, heat water accurately and it does this extremely well, but also very quietly.  It is a good looking piece of equipment too, and very easy to set up at home.

The Sansaire sous vide immersion circulator is often one overlooked on the market. With other models taking the spotlight I wanted to dive into this circulator and share my findings. This circulator is a versatile machine meant to be used by any home cook interested in starting their sous vide journey with a simple to use machine. As an added bonus, it is also quite capable of being used across the globe as it offers US, Australia, and International plug configurations. That being said it is missing some functions that its competitors can offer. Not to say this is a bad product to buy, and the price tag is certainly high. Which is why today we will look at the Sansaire circulator and decide whether this could be your first or perhaps new tool in the kitchen for cooking.

The Review Breakdown

Overall Review Score: 6.8

The Sansaire Circulator scored a lower end 6.8/10 in our review.  Below I dive into each factor in my review covering Affordability, Performance, Ease of Use, Design, and Features.

Affordability: 7

Alot of kitchen gadgets are expensive, that’s no secret.  However, I feel that the Sansaire model is a bit pricy for what it offers.  You can read about the available features below, however this circulator scored only a 7/10 because although it is priced within the market for other circulators.  Well simply put it doesn’t provide all of which those other models do.

Performance: 8

Performance scored an 8/10 in my review of the Sansaire sous vide circulator.  I really appreciate that the machine is able to manage its own safety via temperature and water level, and I also like that it carries 1100 watts of power behind the unit.  Not only that, Sansaire claims to be whisper-quiet and it truly is.  The temperature can be set between 32°F and 212°F, with a range with +- 0.1°F at 140°F, and can circulate about 3 gallons per minute of water.  This is about 1/2 of the maximum recommended water bath capacity that Sansaire suggests, with the maximum bath size being 6gallons.

Ease of use: 9

There is nothing better than an easy to use device.  The steps to begin cooking with the Sansaire Circulator are as follows.

Step 1.) Place your circulator in a container.  Whether this be a regular pot or a polycarbonate container such as cambro.  Need suggestions on a good water bath?  Check out my favorite containers here.

Step 2.) Plug-in your circulator

Step 3.) Cook some great food.  Follow one of my easy recipes if you need to!

It really is that simple and for that, I’ve scored the Ease of Use factor a 9.  However, I wish the clip were less flimsy feeling, as I’m not totally sure how long of a life it has.

Design: 8

Design is an important factor to me, especially when I’m required to leave whatever the item may be out in the open for the world to see.  Sansaire scored an 8/10 here.  I really like the physical design of the circulator, it is tall, sleek, and black in color mostly.  It has a concaved, cylindrical design and just looks really sexy overall.  However, the main material used is plastic and I really wish this was not the case. Not only for the structural aspect but if it were metal I would be much more satisfied with it. The circulator weighs 4 pounds and sitting by itself on the counter, it only takes up a few inches of space.

The clip is a bother however, it looks innovative and is made out of metal. But its flimsy and could pose a problem in the future as it will not clasp down too tightly. I would consider this clasp as more of a support structure than a reliant clip, and personally, I would just place it on the base of my water container.

Features: 2

Features of the Sansaire circulator are plenty but also thin. For example, the beautiful LED panel on the front displays the temperature of the water quite accurately while looking beautiful. However, there is no setting to let you know when you’ve achieved the temperature you set. In fact, there is no connectivity currently available with this device. This means you cant access the device via BlueTooth or Wif. Which also would mean there is no way to set timers, view the duration of time remaining, or anything of that sort.

In-app recipes have lately been the craze, but you won’t be able to find that with this circulator. A handy booklet is provided for times and temperatures and there are recipes available on their website for you to use at your leisure which does help to make up for this.

For international users of the Sansaire, you will have the ability to use one of three different plug configurations. United States, Australia, and an International plug are all available.
