Q: What tools do I require to get started?
A: You’ll need freezer bags, sealing machine (optional) and a cooking container. We recommend you use your Instant Pot inner cooking pot (6 or 8 Quart) as a cooking container.
Q: Do I need to have a cover?
A: No, sous vide cooking is not affected by whether the container is covered or not.
Q: Is there a way to speed up the cooking process?
A: To speed up heating of the water, especially at higher temperatures, heat the water on the stovetop in a pot or kettle, then pour the water into your cooking container once it has heated.
Q: Can I cook more than one recipe within the pot at the same time?
A: As long as there is enough room in the cooking container, and the items are placed in separate bags, you can cook foods within the same container that you would normally cook separately.
Q: What is the minimum and maximum water depth used during cooking?
A: Use the MAX and MIN water level marks on the cooker as a guide. Make sure the water depth is somewhere between the two.
Q: Once everything has been setup and the cooking process has begun, do I need to watch over it?
A: You don’t need to constantly watch the cooker, but do make sure that the water level is between the MAX and MIN water level marks on the cooker.
Q: Does the Accu Slim only work in conjunction with the Instant Pot electric pressure cookers?
A: The cooker will work within any cooking container (metal or glass) that lets you secure the clamp to the side and maintain the water level between MAX and MIN lines. Instant Pot Multi-Use Pressure Cookers provide insulation that will help the cooker to maintain temperature.
Q: Can cooker work touch the bottom of the cooking container?
A: It will not impact the cooking process if the base touches the bottom of the cooking container, since water moves through the water flow channels on either side of the cooker.
Q: Can the cooker be on an angle?
A: No, ensure the cooker is perpendicular to the water level to properly circulate the water bath.
Q: Why does a pouch float and does it matter if it does?
A: There may be air or gas trapped in the pouch which causes the bag to float and can lead to uneven cooking. If this happens, remove the bag, open it, dry the edges, and reseal.
Q: What do I need to do if the seal of my freezer bag goes underwater?
A: Pull the freezer bag out of the water to verify that no water has entered the bag. If water has entered, remove it. Adjust seasoning as required. Submerge the bag back into the water and continue cooking.
Q: Do I need to brown or is this step optional?
A: You should not skip this step if you the most appealing food. We recommend searing on a cast iron pan or barbequing.
Q: Should I flavor the cooking water?
A: No, do not flavor the cooking water, since it does not penetrate the bag during cooking. To add spices or marinades, place the contents with the food inside the bag.
E1 – The water level has fallen below the [MIN] level mark on the cooker and cooking has stopped.
E2 – There is a loose connection and cooking has stopped.
E3 – The sensor open-loop, and the device will stop working.
