Sous-Vide Device Case Study

Services: CNC Machining, Vacuum Casting, Aqua Blasting

Project: Sous-Vide Device
Lead Time: 5 days


About The Project

Sous-vide means “without air” in French. It is a cooking method that involves sealing food in an airtight plastic bag and immersing it in a temperature-controlled circulating water bath for a long period of time. Gourmet chefs claim this method is ideal for slow cooking meats and vegetables to perfection. Nomiku was started in San Francisco to make a home sous-vide device which regulates temperature and insures a constant supply of circulating water. They approached Star to make a prototype for their Kickstarter campaign. 

How The Parts Were Made

The entire working prototype was finished in just five days. The case was made by CNC machining and vacuum casting, then treated with an aqua-blasted surface texture and hand painted. An internal heat sink for the semiconductor heating element was made with wire EDM cutting.
