Ziva insulation balls (250 pieces)
Up to 90% less loss and keeps your bags under water
These insulating balls greatly reduce evaporation (water loss) and heat loss by up to 90% when you use a sous-vide stick in a sous-vide water bath without a lid. Moreover, your vacuum bags stay well under water and you don't have to worry about them floating. In addition, the balls are highly sound-insulating, sun-resistant and reduce odours. One package of 250 sous-vide insulation balls is more than enough for our most common 7 and 12 liters sous-vide water containers and will save you a lot of water and electricity.
SousVideKenner strongly recommends the use of sous-vide insulation for improving your sous-vide experience and its efficiency. The balls are supplied in a handy dishwasher and water-resistant bag and can easily be cleaned and stored occasionally in the bag.
When the entire surface of the reservoir is covered with these balls, heat loss and evaporation are greatly reduced, up to 90%. In addition, the effects of scents and light are minimized. A pack of 250 sous-vide insulation balls is enough for approximately 30 x 30 cm or GN 1/2 GN containers.
Also suitable for sous-vide water ovens with lid
Sous-vide insulation balls also prove to be useful in sous-vide water ovens. A lid only prevents the water from escaping, and that is handy in itself for very long cooking times. But a lot of energy is still lost during evaporation, the vapor condenses against the cold (er) lid, after which the cooled drops fall back into the bath. That means even twice energy loss, which means that warming up takes longer and keeping warm costs more electricity.
Sousvidekenner isolation balls tackle this problem at the source by preventing evaporation of the water (no contact between air and water) and are therefore the most effective and user-friendly method to optimize the efficiency (and speed) of your sous-vide preparation process. We also see that water ovens with insulating balls heat up faster (how much depends on the sous-vide machine and circumstances). In addition, the balls prevent the bags from floating and possibly a part of the product from going unnoticed above the surface of the water (this sometimes happens due to heating of air that is still present or degassing of the product). The balls can easily be cleaned in the dishwasher with your bag!
Perfect for our sous-vide reservoirs
Sousvidekner insulation balls go perfectly with the following sous-vide reservoirs. With one package of 250 sous-vide insulating balls, you have enough for the polycarbonate sous-vide reservoirs of 7 liters and 12 liters.
How much do you need
One package of 250 sousvidekenner insulation balls is enough to cover an area of approximately 0.2 m2. This is roughly the area of a GN1 / 2 sous-vide reservoir. Below you will find an overview of the number of packages you need per type of reservoir.
- 2x for Sous-vide water bath reservoir 28 liters GN1/1 polycarbonate
- 4x for Sous-vide water bath reservoir 58 liters GN2/1 polycarbonate
