OK fill me in. I am going to have one of these. I'm thinking I might go with the best as long as the price is not crazy.
If it's sealed in a bag and finished properly it's not mushy. I suppose if you left it in there for a really long time the meat would break down enough and the texture would change. The best part about using it is that I can cook a full meal and never have to worry about timing the meat to be done with everything else. Once it's cooked it will hold until you are ready to put the sear on it.Looking to dip my toe into this as well but wasn't sold so far on the investment for a good unit.
The "downside" I've heard on the prep is that meat can come out a little "mushy".
Have y'all had that problem?
Otherwise, it seems pretty hard to beat as a set-and-forget option for roasts and whatnot...
