    10 cooking gadgets for kitchen geeks

    While wrapping your food in plastic bags and cooking it at tepid temperatures for long periods of time may seem completely new and foreign to some home cooks, people have actually been doing it for decades. Sous vide cooking was introduced in the 1960′s, but back then it was referred to as Cryovacking. Chefs first started using the technique to retain flavors and volume that would otherwise be lost in the cooking process; industrial kitchens liked sous vide cooking because it extended the shelf life of food. By the first part of this millennium, the method had made its way into prominent professional kitchens. It was a quick leap to aspirational self-defined food nerds. Today, several devices targeted for home cooks eager to save on time and convenience without sacrificing taste are on the market.
