Water Oven cooking with the Aquachef sous vide; Healthy cooking made easy

New Years always bring  our awareness to our health. we create new goals to achieving a healthier living and choosing healthier meals. One of the best ways to improve our meals is by cooking naturally. A water oven is one of the best ways to cook healthier meals.  A sous vide water oven allows your food to keep it’s rich flavor and keeps your meat from drying out. Not to mention the Aquachef water oven is really easy to use and offers very little clean up!

Introducing the Aquachef sous vide water oven

Aquachef is a new sous vide water oven that makes creating healthy and flavor full meals easy! It uses the science of the sous vide cooking to ensure that your food stays moist. It cooks the food from the inside out, which helps prevent your food from over drying. It also cooks inside the food’s own juices, ensuring a richness of flavor. And all without the need of oil or butter.

The Aquachef is a revolutionary kitchen appliance that’s the easy and foolproof way to cook! The secret of the AquaChef is that air never touches your food. By sealing your food air-tight, your food retains 100% of the moisture, flavor, and nutrients. Your food cooks in its own natural juices, evenly at a precise temperature all the way through. Meaning from edge to edge your food will cook perfectly. And best of all, your food will never burn, or overcook.

The Aquachef comes with the water oven unit, a hand held vacuum sealer with reusable seal n’ fresh vacuum seal bags, manual, cookbook, and a 30 day money back guarantee.

How to cook with the Aquachef sous vide water oven

Cooking with the Aquachef water oven is super easy! I think that is one of the best parts is just how easy it makes cooking. You can cook an entire meal in just a few simple steps! To begin you will need to preheat the Aquachef water oven. The temperature will depend on the type of meat you want to cook. Basically you will be heating it to the temperature that the food needs to reach internally to be safe to eat. The cookbook as well as the USDA website can give a reference as to which temperature each food needs to reach for safe consumption.

Simply place seasoned meat cuts into the vacuum bag. Seal the bag. Use the hand held vacuum to suck the air from the bag. Place into the pre-heated Aquachef water oven. Submerge into the water and cover with the lid. Then check the timer and make sure it is set to cook for the appropriate time. And then you can walk away and forget about it until it is time to eat! The Aquachef will never over  cook the food and won’t let the food get to a higher temperature than what you have set it to reach.

The result is some of the most amazingly juicy chicken breasts I’ve ever had! Honestly, I have never been able to cook my chicken breasts to be this juice before! It was tender, and didn’t need a knife to eat. And the flavor was amazing. Since the chicken breasts cooked in the juices, it kept the flavor of Chicken and the herbs instead of taking on the flavor of oil, or losing the flavor to being cooked out. And it just amazes me at just how easy it was to use!

The only downside is that you definitely need to plan ahead. Since the food needs to cook for a minimum of 1-2 hours depending on the food; then you need to plan ahead so you can get the food into the oven early enough that the food is ready in time for dinner. It’s not one that you can wait until 20 minutes before dinner and have it ready in time. But with a little planning ahead; you can easily get dinner set up ahead of time and not worry about it again.

I have found the Aquachef Water oven has made dinner preparation a lot easier. I no longer have to worry about having a daughter hanging on my leg begging for mommy’s attention while I’m cooking dinner.  I just put the food into the Aquachef and walk away and spend time with my kids while the water oven does all the work. It has been amazing! And everyone loves the food that has come from the water oven.

When I fed the chicken breast to the Husband his very first comment was, “Wow, it is so moist!”. Oh yes it was! You can even  use frozen meat cuts. No need to worry about unthawing them. Simply add the appropriate time to the cooking and  it will turn out perfect!

  4. I had heard about this recently and am so interested in trying one!! I am trying so had to cook healthy meals for myself and my family and cooking with water is so much better than cooking with oil and I imagine the flavor is so much better as well. Healthy cooking = healthy eating = a healthy and happy me!

  5. i would love to have this since i have to prepare gluten free food for my son who is 8 and has celiac…this would be great to have with alot of the recipes i make :)

  6. That sounds amazing!

  7. Wow I had never heard of these! It looks easy and like you would be doing some very healthy cooking with it. I love the fact that you don’t have to use any oil or butter or anything because I am trying very hard to adopt a healthier lifestyle and cooking healthy meals is a huge part of that!

  8. I have never seen an oven like this, but it looks like it cooks really good. Thanks for the contest.

  9. It’s so much fun to learn about new ways of cooking on the internet. I like that you can fix the food and then go do other stuff while it cooks.

  10. This is a definite first! Never seen anything like it! Thanks for the great review and introduction to the product!

  11. Thank you for the informative review. I am always looking for ways to make our meals more healthy and I love that you don’t have to monitor it during the cooking process.

  12. I bet this would make great turkey for sandwiches! I had this amazing turkey sandwich once, super moist, with garlic butter and herb mayonnaise, so good!

  13. thanks for introducing me to this, i have to go get one right now!

  14. Well this is the first I have heard of this, but this sounds like a healthier way to cook for my family. Thanks for the review on this.

  15. I had never heard of this before i read this article..but it sure seems like a healthier way of preparing meals

  16. This is the first I’ve ever heard about the Aquachef Water Oven – but my family has been looking into alternative methods of preparing food (especially want to ditch using the microwave) – so I’m pretty stoked about this!!! <3

  17. I’ve never heard of a water oven but after reading this info on Aquachef it certainly looks interesting enough!I love the way the fish ( looks like Salmon) looks! if I have one of these that is the very first thing I’d try!

  18. I had heard this new way of cooking mentioned on a Paleo blog I often read but had not looked into it – just figured it was something kinda complicated lol. This sounds completely awesome! ty for the review.

  19. This was the first I’ve heard of this product. It seems like a great way to make healthy meals!

  20. Valerie Taylor Mabrey

    I too, had never heard of this way of cooking. Sounds like a pressure cooker style that is faster and safer to use.

  21. I am trying to cook healthier in fact my daughter only eats chicken breast and turkey. These are both so lean it is hard to get them moist and not dried out. This product would be a wonderful way to cook healthy easy meals.

  22. I like how easy it is

  23. I love that the Aquachef Water Oven requires no oil or butter which will make it so much healthier for my family.
    The face that it doesn’t lose nutrients or require thawing is also a huge plus.
    I will no longer have to worry if I forget to lay out something for dinner.


  24. My resolution this year is to help my husband lose the extra weight he has put on and to help him stop smoking. This water oven would be absolutely wonderful to have as it would help me to cook healthier for him, myself and our family. I love the concept and would really love to win this oven as having a healthy cooking method like this would definately help in my helping him lose the extra weight. Thank you.

  25. I watch a lot of cooking shows and cooking competition shows and you always see them cook this way, but I had no idea you could do it at home. We are really trying to eat healthier and cooking without all the oils and fats would be great.
    Thank you!

  26. This is the first I have heard of this product. This would be so great to have because one of my major goals for this year is to eat healthier and this would diffidently help me and my family in that goal.

  27. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway i would love this.

  28. I don’t like when chickens, beef and pork dry out when I’m cooking them. This seem a great cooker and would really be happy if I win it. :)

  29. I never even knew that there was aproduct out there like this. What an awesome idea. I’d love to give it a try.

  30. How cool. I think this is such a great innovative idea. I would love to get one debbie jackson

  31. I would love to try this out! The shrimp cocktail in the picture looks so delicious.

  32. Sous vide is a new concept for me but I love that I can cook from frozen as I tend to forget to take something out.

  33. This food looks so good. I also love that it is healthy. I may have to get one of these.

  34. wow ive never seen this before, it is the coolest thing i have ever seen, i want one,it looks amazing, great review

  35. This sounds amazing. I love that you can’t burn the food! :)

  36. I have just started to read about this sous vide method and I am very interested in it. You’ve filled in a lot of the blanks in your review. Since I’m always on the lookout for healthier ways to cook and serve my our meals, this Aquachef really appeals to me!

  37. I have been looking into a similar appliance, but it is more of an oven it doesn’t say anything about water. When I saw the image of the food in the bag it seemed kind of gross to me but when I see the finished product I love it. :)

  38. I would love to cook this way. My husband loves fried foods and I know there is a better way. I never knew this was available, thanks for the information.

  39. This sounds like a great kitchen helper but where do you get the replacement bags and are they reusable and freezeable. Would be nice to retain the vitamins and nutrients in your foods and the programable cooking process is a great thing also.

  40. I can’t help but wonder about the bags you cook the food in. Are they disposable or re-usable? And if they are disposable are they recyclable? Do you have to order the bags from a particular place or can you find them at multiple stores/locations? Additionally, what about vegetables? Does the Aquachef have specific settings for them as well, particularly for vegetarians?

  41. new appliance to me very unique

  42. Wow.. looks like something I could use to help my family eat healthier!

  43. Wow I never even heard of this it is awesome. Something i would def use. I am always forgetting to lay food out.

  44. I have never seen one of these before, it looks fun! I would love to try the food from one of these! What a great idea!

  45. interesting it looks just like a deep fryer

  46. Considering my gas oven just bit the dust, winning this would not only be healthy but helpful….I hope I win and good luck to the other entrants.

  47. Wow! What a great way to cook healthier!

  48. I’ve wanted to try to sous vide for a long time! I’d love to win this and try tons of new things!

  49. I’ve never heard of this product or process. It’s a great idea, and I’d love to try it since I’m trying to improve my diet!

  50. christine jessamine

    i have never heard of this before, i love that there are alot of different things you can cook with this

  51. This looks very cool! I wonder how much new vacuum bags are when you run out?

  52. What a great way to cook, wow I am very impressed

  53. I dont believe I have ever heard of this and it is amazing and so pleasing. Makes perfect sense that if its cooked from inside out it would retain more juices…oh what a grand review!!

  54. I love your review of this product. I can definitely use something like this to cook more healthy foods for my family.

  55. That chicken looks so moist! I would love to cook this way, I think my kids would eat more if meats were more moist.

  56. Wow…I’ve never heard of such a thing! Would love to try it…

  57. This looks really cool and you always hear people using this type of equipment on food network. I want to find new ways to cook even healthier for my family and I think this would be great! Good luck to all!

  58. This looks like a wonderful way to make lower calorie meat dishes, since it requires no oil, fat or grease to cook. Just wondering what the price range might be. Thanks for the interesting review.

  59. I so need one of these! I have wanted one ever since I discovered they existed (another brand). I am always paranoid about undercooking meat. I end up checking it every 5 minutes (after it is “supposed” to be done), and thus the meat ends up in small pieces from me cutting it open to see if it is pink. Heh. This would solve all of my problems! So would a meat thermometer, but that’s not the point. Oh, plus the health benefits, and not having to stand over a pan!

  60. wow, this is great, healthier and I would bet a lot more moist

  61. This cooking method is new to me. It looks like it produces great food, tender with no loss of taste. I would love to try it.

  62. wow this looks incredible! and I would love to try the incredibly moist chicken! lol… i’m glad to see the bags are reusable also!

  63. This is the first I have heard of this great product. I am trying to eat healthier so I can get my diabetes under control. I love how it keeps the food moist so flavor isn’t lost in cooking.

  64. Wow this looks like such a great product – I’ve never heard of this before! It looks easy to use too, which is always a bonus for me :)

  65. WoW!!! I have never seen a Water Oven before! This is such a cool and interesting product…I love that it keeps meat moist, since I have a tendency to overcook things like fish and chicken! I really like this!

  66. Hmm, that looks really useful! It kind of reminds me of a deep fat fryer, only a whole lot healthier!

  67. I love that you can’t burn your food! I so need this product! AMAZING

  68. I hate when the meat is dry. What a great idea to seal in the liquid and flavor. You would definitely need to plan, but it sounds like the taste was worth the effort.

  69. I love that you can’t overcook or burn your food, but I really love that it uses water for the cooking! This is a great looking oven!

  70. I have really been wanting to get a sous vide machine and the price is awesome on this!

  71. This is definitley something that I have to try. If there is anything that I have an issue with when cooking it is overcooking my meats. My husband is a very finnicky and picky eater and he likes for all of his food to be well well done to ensure that he wont get sick or end up with any type of illness. Now while I agree with him 100% I also would like to have some juicy and tender meats sometime and not tough and dried-out meat. So this seems like it just might be what we need.

  72. I do not know anybody who uses a sous vide water oven, but it seems like a great idea. We are always looking for ways to make healthy meals!!

  73. I am terrible about staying in the kitchen to watch food cook, so I sometimes burn things. This sounds like I wouldn’t have that problem again!

  74. I have never heard of this before! I love how easy it looks and can just imagine how flavorful it cooks the food.

  75. This device would help improve my cooking since I tend to overcook protein. I love that you can use it on all types of protein and not just poultry —– Paul T/Pauline T aka Paol Trenny ….. emscout9 at Hotmail dot com

  76. it looks kinda complicated on first site, but your review really piqued my interest. Healthy eating is a great idea!

  77. Convection and deep frying all in one just with water. I will love this unit.

  78. interesting gadget/concept

  79. this looks so interesting! no more over cooked or dried out meat! love it! more flavor less fat :) perfect for a new year!!!

  80. I saw a program on the BBC last year about cooking meats this way. I have wanted to try it ever since!

  81. That looks amazing!!! I really want one of them. I hate to be “that person” but, usually, I really don’t like to cook. Day after day… it just gets old. This sounds like the perfect kitchen item for me!!

  82. ‘Healthy’, ‘no oil’ and ‘water oven’ intrigued me but when I saw the size of the unit, how small it is, I was in deep. I am primarily vegetarian, with some seafood, and this unit would work for my meals. I am concerned about the cost (and waste) of the bags but not using any fat is a bonus/saving. Perhaps the used bags could be used for trash?

  83. wow that sounds really great! I’ve never heard of this method of cooking before and would really love to give it a try, since it looks so easy!

  84. Yum! I’d heard about this cooking method but hadn’t realized it was so easy. I think this would be a great way to eat healthier.

  85. I’ve seen chefs cook sous vide on various cooking shows and would love to try this!

  86. wow, ive never seen one of these before, how lucky that you were able to try it out. what a healthy option. i want one!

  87. Have never even heard of these before, but reading your review I definitely would consider purchasing one! Or at least asking for it as a gift :)

  88. These look awesome.. Never heard of it but would relly like to try one out..

  89. This is amazing! I didn’t know such a vitamin-saving oven existed. I have tried pressure cooking and slow cooking so as to retain the vitamin content of the foods I am making. I like the idea of sealing in the meat to retain flavor too!

  90. This is interesting, never seen one before. The chicken looks juicy and tender, I would like to try one. Healthy too

  91. Holy cow. This looks awesome!

  92. I have heard so much about this cooking method, everybody who’s ever tried it just raves about it! I love that this unit also comes with a vacuum sealer and reusable bags.

  93. I have never heard of this cooking method before, certainly an interesting concept

  94. Wow! I’ve heard of sous vide cooking before, but I always thought it was mostly for use in restaurants and stuff (the kind of places I can’t afford to go!). Now I really want to try a steak in this thing, just to see how juicy I could keep medium-rare.

  95. I’ve never seen a product like this before. I would be interested to see what the meat tastes like.

  96. This thing looks so cool! I am going to find out more about it!

  97. I would love to try cooking chicken in this thing. And other things of course, but I’m especially curious about chicken for it.

  98. This sounds like an awesome addition to our kitchen! I’ve been dieting most of this year and am down almost 70 lbs, and I am always looking for new, healthy ways to cook. We use the slow cooker fairly often so I don’t think we’d have much of a problem planning ahead.

  99. I was reading about sous vide cooking a few weeks ago and would love to give it a try myself

  100. When I was younger there were a couple of frozen food items that were dropped in boiling water and cooked that I miss. This would be an excellent way to create my choice of flavors and to cook in such a way as to avoid drying out. Bring on the food!

  101. Wow I never seen one you can use in your own kitchen! I love that it keeps meat moist. I have the hardest time keeping my chicken moist. I also like that it cooks the meats in there own juices, bet that makes it taste a whole lot better. But the best part is I can walk away and have it do the work!

  102. I have read this review and other similar ones. This looks like such a great tool for healthier eating and I really have been craving to try one out.

  103. I’ve never heard about this…it sounds amazing. I always cook the heck out of meat until it’s like shoe leather! My family would be grateful!

  104. I love to cook and have been wanting to try sous vide since I first heard about it. This isn’t all that expensive and looks like it does a great job cooking food.

  105. This is honestly one of the coolest cooking methods I have ever seen. I am always searching for healthy new ways to cook food. This looks convenient and fun! Thanks for the review, it was very informative.

  106. Wow! So awesome! :) I should definitely look into buying one of those magical machines! :)

  107. Saw this method of cooking on Top Chef. Would love to try this.

  108. Ooh..fancy cooking style in the comfort of your own home! Although the design did throw me off at first–I thought this was a deep fryer at first glance.

  109. i honestly had never heard of this type of cooking before. i can’t believe how moist the chicken breasts look…now i’m very curious & interested!


  111. This looks like a great little appliance! I have not heard of this before, but would love to try it!

  112. I love to try different kitchen gadgets, this one is one I have never seen before, but it looks great.

  113. I’ve just begun hearing about this. I think it looks like an interesting way to cook and would love to taste food cooked this way.

  114. This looks so interesting. My uncle loves to cook and try different method. I’ll have to send this along to him. I’m sure he’d be really interested.

  115. This seems easy to use and it looks like it will cook well.

  116. Oh wow. I have never seen one in home use before. I have watched them being used on the cooking shows, but never in “real” life before. I would love to have this.

  117. This sounds really cool. I’m not a great cook, but this seems like it would be almost fool proof. I love that it won’t let you burn your food!

  118. This is something I have never heard of but would like to know more about. I wonder if an entire dinner could be prepared in one bag for a single person’s dinner–now that would be a time saver!

  119. Never heard of this before—I like the entire concept–kind of like boiling but not boiling–wonder if you could get an entire meal into one of these for a single person’s dinner? Now that would be a time saver!!

  120. Wow, this sounds totally amazing! We eat chicken like 4 days a week so love how versatile it is

  121. I have seen these on Iron Chef America, and have thought this was a super-cool way to cook

  122. I like that this would not overcook the food I am preparing, since I tend to burn meat when I am cooking for my family.

  123. This sounds amazing! I’ve been trying to improve on eating healthy because I’ve got metabolic disease (I have type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and thyroid disease) so eating healthy is so important. This would help me out so much!

  124. I wish I had it for Christmas, it would have been great to have!

  125. Thanks for the great review! My new year resolution is to eat healthier and this is just the thing I need to make healthier meals!

  126. I saw someone use 1 of these awhile back and seriously want one!! I think they are awesome!

  127. Sounds interesting. It is worth giving it a try.

  128. i have never heard of this oven before. i love that it can kind of be compared to a crockpot, being able to to put it in and turn it on! It sounds like it is worth the price!

  129. Interesting. I haven’t heard of these before. We have been working towards eating healthier, and this would really help us achieve that goal.

  130. michelle gilliland mcafee

    I have never heard of a water oven, but this sounds awesome. I like that the air never touches the food so it doesn’t dry out. And I love that it has the vacuum sealer. This is awesome. I think I may have to see about getting one of these.

  131. I have seen this used on Iron Chef It is Awesome I can’t believe I have the opportunity to try and win one! I have tasted food cooked like this at a restaurant in my town & the food was Delicious!

  132. I would love to try this.

  133. This looks like an amazing product!! I’d love to try it.

  134. Fee (Phyllis) Roberts

  135. I saw this for the first time recently and now I realllllllllyyy want one!!!!!! How freakin cool!

  136. This sounds like a dream. I would like to know if you had any problems with the time it took to cook. It sounds like I could put lunch on go to yoga class and come home and eat. Great!

  137. I haven never seen a product like this. Thanks so much for the review.

  138. This is the first I’ve heard of this and I love the idea. I wonder how well it would work with Meatless “meats” like Quorn or Morning Star products? I’m definitely going to look into this further!

  139. I have never heard of water oven cooking before. It would be nice to eliminate oils and butters for a more healthy meal.

  140. I love the fact that you aren’t cooking with oils. One of our goals is to eat healthier. This would be a perfect way to do that!

  141. I have never heard of this, but this is so cool. We will be trying to eat healthier this year and this sounds like a perfect way to do it. I would love to try salmon and chicken in this. Thank you for the great review!

  142. cooks inside the food’s own juices, ensuring a richness of flavor….love this….cant wait to try it!!

  143. I have never heard of this but I would love to use one for cooking!

  144. I usually overcook my chicken breasts because I’m afraid of serving raw chicken. Sounds like this might make them more tolerable for my family!

  145. Great concept Would love to try this I have a tendancy to overcooked and dry out my meat

  146. I’ve never heard of this appliance before, but i would love to be able to try it, especially with vegetables.

  147. I had never heard of this but wow is this spiffy! I wonder if I can get my husband to get one of these for me? WOuld be so cool when we have family over!

  148. I’m always looking for ways to cut down on how much time I spend in the kitchen so it’s great to have an alternative to the crockpot in the Aquachef!

  149. Meagan P - Sunshine and Sippy Cups

    I’ve never even heard of something like this?? It sounds really cool though – I’m such a sucker for awesome kitchen gadgets :)

  150. This is awesome! I didn’t know there was a version available to the home chef. I’ve seen water ovens used on cooking shows like Iron Chef and thought it was really cool.

  151. That is so neat. I definitely need one of these!

  152. I have never heard of these before nor seen one. It makes sense it woul be healthier as it doesnt use oils and I like the idea of how portable it seems to be too. I am kind of curious about the bags though…

  153. I had no idea that water ovens existed but it sure sounds neat!

  154. How cool! What a great way to cook! I’ll definately be checking out the giveaway!

  155. I like this idea for cooking healthy and flavorful. For veggies, it would keep in all the nutrition.

  156. This is new to me too. But we are trying to eat healthier so I would love to try it too. I teach so mo “unthawing’ would be wonderful!

  157. This looks really interesting! I’ve never heard of the Aquachef but love that I can cook without drying out my food.

  158. I love that this doesn’t dry out the meat! I seems like no matter what I do, my meat is always dry.

  161. I would love to try one of these!

  162. Elizabeth Godschalx Wisniewski
