I've had really good results, so I haven't experimented too much with these variables, but this is what I do:-I fill the pot pretty much full. I think this prevents rapid temperature swings.-I cover the pot with the lid.-I put a towel over the crock pot to add some insulation.I suspect your problem has to do with the temperature probe location. I like to put the probe next to whatever I'm cooking. I usually put a small bowl in the crock pot and put the packet on top of the bowl to keep it in the middle of the crock pot. For one packet, I usually place the probe between the bowl and the packet. If I have two packets, I place the probe so it sticks out between them. I hope that helps. Do some experiments and let us know what you find out.
Beautiful build. I love the removable probe, and you definitely get points for the decal. Now start cooking!
The connection at the top with the "arrow looking" symbol is ground (https://i.stack.imgur.com/dCYJg.png). I assume "L" means Load and "N" means Neutral.I don't see labels on the other pins.One way to figure out what they are is to use a multi-meter. Use the resistance setting to see which pins on the back are connected to each other (zero resistance), and which plugs on the front are connected to the pins on the back.
I'm an Arduino fan, so this instructable gets me excited.As with any problem, there are multiple solutions. Here's an instructable I did a few years ago using a digital temperature controller and crock pot for sous vide. https://www.instructables.com/id/Sous-vide-cooker-f...

Just use the diagram in Step 5 (Wiring). Skip the C14 receptacle, strip the wires on the cord, and connect the load/hot (red or black) to screws 1 and 3 on the controller. Connect the neutral wire (white) to the outlet and on through to screw 4 on the controller. Connect the ground (bare or green) to the outlet.Easy peasy. Good luck and bon appetit.
That's not me. Wow. They definitely stole the picture and description from my "ible".I contacted the seller and eBay to have the listing removed.Thanks for letting me know.
I got a response back from yorkshireukpeterHe said, "If it's on the internet and is free... it's not stealing"Amazing. I guess some people just don't get it.
Very nicely done! That steak looks great. I think I'll have to do some sous vide cooking this weekend.
