The PolyScience Sous Vide Toolbox­­™ is the winner of the StarChefs.com International Chefs Congress Innovator Award. The PolyScience Sous Vide Toolbox­­™ guides you to a successful and food-safe sous vide cooking experience. It helps you determine the optimal sous-vide cooking and re-heating time for a variety of foods. All data are plotted in graphs to show you the relationships between time, temperature, and pathogen reduction in your food. The Cooking Journal lists each event during the cooking process and explains if needed. Once the process is finished, you are notified via message and audible alarm. Instead of providing a limited number of combinations of foods, sizes, shapes and temperatures as found in time/temperature tables, the Sous Vide Toolbox provides a much wider combination of options - with just a few taps on your screen. The thermal conductivity (heat transfer) characteristics of protein are almost identical for every type of protein. So rather than measuring how long it takes to cook food at different thicknesses, we can use this value to calculate the time it takes at a given temperature and thickness for the item to reach core temperature and different levels of pasteurization. This takes out the guesswork of determining the correct cooking time at a certain temperature. It also provides great guidance as to what level of pathogen reduction occurs at what time and whether your choice of temperature and time is considered safe.

Does not run properly on iPhone 6s Plus iOS 11.3.1

Don’t waste your $

Update your APP!!!

Disappointed you still haven’t updated your app. It’s 2018. Fire whomever is responsible for this area of your business!

won’t work for iphone os11+ needs to update

By Countryshooter

I want a refund

I paid for the Polyscience Sous Vide app (I think $9.99?) and it never got updated to iOS11. So basically I had the app for a couple of months and then nothing. Refund, please.

Update to IOS11 needed

I can’t use my app will you please update?

Clunky Interface - Not Kept Up

I use a Polyscience Sous Vide. Love the product, but, for a scientific company this seems to be an afterthought. They haven’t updated the app in years and now it has stopped working in iOS 11. You can only call them. Most inconvenient.

Doesn’t work in iOS 11! NIce, but don't buy both this and Sous Vide Dash

29 Oct 2017: Won’t run in iOS 11, so nobody should buy this at present. I purchased both Polyscience Sous Vide Toolbox and Sous Vide Dash on the same day thinking they might be different. Anyone who thinks they're not functionally identical is misinformed. The ONLY differences are the colors and the selection of circulators. Polyscience Sous Vide Toolbox even refers to itself as "Sous Vide Dash" within the app. PSVT allows you to select from a wider range of Polyscience circulators than SVD and unlike SVD does not allow selection of other brands of equipment (though it does include "Generic Non-circulating" and "Generic Circulating"). This is a useful tool for estimating time-to-temperature for various thicknesses and shapes of food and for estimating reduction in 3 pathogens (E. Coli, Listeria sp., and Salmonella sp.) It's flexible and has fairly reasonable defaults, and includes a fairly wide range of specific foods so you can select lamb loin chops vs. rib chops instead of just going by shape and size. My recommendation is to buy Polyscience Sous Vide Toolbox if you have a Polyscience circulator or like red, or buy Sous Vide Dash if you have a different brand of equipment or like yellow. One or the other is certainly worthwhile if you plan to cook anything sous vide.

No longer works!

I use to love this app but it no longer functions after Apple’s latest update. Just got off the phone with Polyscience who said they have no plans to update it.

Only if you have 5 bucks to burn

This app does have some very limited functionality once you master its TERRIBLE user interface. At 99 cents it would be a maybe. At $5 it is a total rip-off. And, this is just a rebranding of Sous Vide Dash, so don't bother with that one, either. Plus, both will be DOA once iOS 11 is released (per Apple's own alert when you first start the app.)

I just bought it. Tried for settings for a freshly thawed 2" ribeye with a starting temperature of 38 F to get to 139. It says it will take over 4 hours, insists this is dangerous and then won't start despite pressing "start". Inaccurate and worthless. So my 15 minutes of trying it has cost me $4.95. Don't make the same mistake. Read more of the reviews.
