If you’re a frequent user of the popular ChefSteps Joule sous vide immersion circulator reviewed here, then you know that the biggest issue with long overnight sous vide cooking sessions is having to periodically add water to the pot due to evaporation. Aside from being an annoyance, this can also result in spoiled food if enough water is lost to force the immersion circulator to automatically shut off, thereby reducing the water temperature beneath safe temperatures.
In order to remedy this and to ensure an interrupted night’s sleep, the team at Simply Works has introduced this silicone lid designed to cover an 11-inch (12-16 quart) stock pot and featuring a cutout specifically sized to fit the Joule.
The lid also features a hook and handle that can be used to hold the lid open when inserting or removing bagged food. When closed, the lid will allow the user to run the immersion circulator for days without replacing water. Just as nice is the fact that the food grade silicone is easy to roll up for storage and will hold up well over countless uses.
