Sous Vide Equipment vs a Sous Vide Food Supplier, which Investment is Right for the Commercial Kitchen?

An investment in sous vide offers many benefits for the commercial kitchen. The precision temperature-controlled process takes the guesswork out of food preparation and production. It allows you to create consistent, high-quality food cooked to exact specifications and temperatures.

In addition to giving you greater control in the kitchen, sous vide has a significant impact on food quality, service, and guest satisfaction. It’s quickly becoming one of the foundations of any competitive and successful food business.

While sous vide offers many benefits, here are a few of the highlights:

Impact on Food

Impact on Operations

To get these benefits and many more from sous vide, you have two main options. You can invest in sous vide equipment for your operation, or you can purchase food that’s been prepared using sous vide methods from a supplier.


This solution works well for those looking to incorporate the benefits of sous vide food without purchasing any additional equipment. It’s designed for kitchens that are led by a production team rather than a chef.

Here’s how it works. Food is manufactured off-site, portioned, packaged and shipped to your kitchen, where it’s reheated and served.




This solution is designed for the chef-led kitchen that wants to create the highest quality food on their terms. It provides greater control for operational costs, food production, and creativity.

Here’s how it works. You dial in your cooking temperature; prepare the food to your recipe; seal it in a vacuum pack bag; cook it; walk away; chill it until needed; return it to the immersion circulator to bring it back up to a precise temperature; finish it and plate it.



While sous vide offers many benefits, it also raises a lot of questions. Sous vide doesn’t have to be intimidating. At fusionchef, we work with professional chefs and culinary teams to help them understand how to incorporate sous vide food as part of their restaurant, food service or catering operations.
