The folks that brought us the SousVide Supreme released a new smaller, model called the SousVide Supreme Demi. The Demi appears to be their iPod Mini version of the Sous Vide Supreme. It's less expensive, comes in a number of colors, and has a smaller footprint.
So, let's collect some data from the SousVide Supreme website and do some maths:
Ok, now that we have some data, let's make some observations:
|Comparison of SousVide Supreme to SousVide Supreme Demi|
- The Demi is 33% cheaper. The original SousVide Supreme is too expensive for the average consumer. It will be interesting to see if the sub-300$ water bath will increase adoption.
- The Demi will take up 12-13% less countertop space than the full size model.
- The Demi's internal volume is 80% of the volume of the classic. Which is weird, because:
- The bag/product capacity (e.g. the amount of food you can put inside) is at best 60% of the amount you can put into the SousVide Supreme. I am not an EE major, but I don't think the hardware would make a difference. Anyone want to shed some light for me?
