Turned my crock pot into a sous vide cooker for $25!

@derosa you actually just run hot tap water?

My first ghetto sous vide was on the stove top where I just added cold tap water to keep temps down. It worked ok, but was not worth the hassle of watching it for an hour.

In all honesty, if you can follow a map you could probably create one. Schematics and prototypes(atleast mine) look much more complicated than they really are. I may do a step by step walk through if I gest some boards made up. Than if you could solder and follow pictures you could make one. If you can't solder...well hopefully you know someone that can:)

It would definitely be cheaper than a sois vide magic.

It looks much worse than it is. I'm hoping to get some circuit boards made so I can build some up for a few friends that want them. That would clean the entire thing up quite a bit.

I tried the pot and ice, but I just didn't have the patience to sit around and watch it:)

I finally finished up my project of turning my crock pot into a sous vide cooker. Total cost was about $25. Total time was about 20 hours:p Was it worth the money I saved? probably not, but it impresses my friends with both "geekness" of it and the food!

I did a short write up of the project, so if any of you are technically adept, you can make your own for dirt cheap and no design time.
