Intro: Simple Sous Vide
I have no idea why I waited so long to make a sous vide cooker. My life has been changed and I've found salvation! There's nothing terribly new about this implementation and its a simple rework of most of the other DIY soud vide machines around the internets. The build is relatively easy and involves little more than wiring the part together. Cost came in around $100 and certainly some parts could be sourced cheaper. Its based around the Light Object JLD612 PID timer and a simple crockpot. There are several variations that incorporate the heating element directly into the design, but I wanted something more flexible. By building the controller as a stand alone box, I'll be able to use it with different crockpots, rice cookers and electric smokers. The only real reason for this Instructable is to hopefully provide some more pictures and fill in some of the gaps for someone else looking to build their own device.
