Got a Severin locally and the bags. From Takealot or One day only. Very happy with it.
Also got the vacuum sealer as well.

Which bags? Do you vacuum seal or use ziplocs?

The Severin bags. I do vacuum seal. The sealer vacuums and seals.

Anova ordered and will be here soon.

I'm looking for a way to sear or brown the meats after a sous vide bath. I've got a Dremel Versaflame torch but I've heard that using these small blow torches on meats can lead to 'torch taste'. Any advice with regards to this would be appreciated.

Apparently something like this does not impart a 'torch taste' https://www.importitall.co.za/Searzall-Torch-Attachment-Small-Stainless-ap-B00L2P0KNO.html

Nice, give us some feedback once you've tried it out. I'd rather start off by browning the meat in a skillet (using ghee or similar). Perhaps you'll find that it's not too much of a headache. I'm a bit nervous about the fuel not being fully combusted before reaching my food. You'll also need a torch with enough heat output.

I've decided to wait for the Nano, mostly for it's IP67 rating and lower price. Not sure if I'll be able to hold off until the 220V model launches though.

Time to resurrect this thread.

I too have the Severin bath and sealer. I use the Severin bags.
