IKEA Stainless Steel Sous Vide Rack
Whilst this IKEA stainless steel rack is really designed for pot lid storage, it is also perfect for sous vide cooking. By placing your sealed food bags (known as food pouches) into this rack, water will be allowed to circulate freely in your water bath. This means that your food will cook evenly.
For this purpose this stainless steel rack holds your food pouches off the bottom of your sous vide water bath. It also separates your food pouches so water can flow around, under and above them evenly.
These racks can be used either upright or upside down to help keep your food pouche(s) submerged under the water. Sometimes you may want to remove some of the upright prongs. This will allow you to place bigger items between the prongs (eg large steaks).
This IKEA stainless steel sous vide rack:
- can be customized, lengthened or shortened based on your sous vide cooking needs
- can be easily wiped clean using a damp cloth and a mild cleaner
Stainless steel sous vide racks are becoming increasingly popular in sous vide cooking. They are a great way to keep your food pouches apart when your food is in your water bath. The great thing about this IKEA rack is that it can be adjusted depending on which water bath you are using (pot or larger container) and the size of your food pouches.
Most sous vide cooks use this rack with a plastic container and a sous vide immersion circulator. Most commonly home cooks use it with the Rubbermaid Commercial Space Saving Food Storage Container, 12 Quart
