There's a big difference between a steak made at a restaurant versus at home.
The latter usually never tastes as stellar as the former.But The Paragon Induction Cooktop, released in 2015, promises to help you prepare high-quality steaks in your kitchen.
First Build, a subsidiary of GE, developed the appliance, which is available online for $299.It employs induction cooking, meaning it uses copper and an electric current to sauté, sear, or fry food.
But it also lets you do sous vide which cooks food in a a temperature-controlled water bath , thanks to a water temperature sensor that hooks to the pot's side.To switch between sous vide and normal induction, you just need to change the setting on the device.
I'd never used a sous vide or induction cooktop before this week — I've always made steaks using my oven's broiler or stovetop.
Sous vide takes much longer.
