I just discovered a cooking procedure called "Sous Vide" & am wondering if
anyone on WA is familiar with it or is using it.

Hey Wally,

Google searched "what is sous vide cooking" (without the quotation marks, of course) I found the following explanation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sous-vide that may gain you a response from someone here who cooks food in a vacuum-sealed plastic pouch.

Personally, I would not do this as plastic leaches toxic chemicals into bottled water when stored in warehouses. Thus, I can only imagine the same issue would be true when cooking food in a plastic pouch.

Hi Trish,

Thanks for your reply & the link.

The "Ziploc" brand & the "Food-Saver" vacuum bags do not have the plastic leaching problem. They are FDA approved for Sous-Vide cooking.

Thanks Again,
