What does sous vide mean?

For those of you who don’t know, sous vide is a French term that means “under vacuum.” Also referred to as low-temperature long-time (LTTL), it is a technique wherein you seal the food inside an airtight container and cook it in a water bath for a longer time under a constant, regulated temperature. The goal of sous vide is to cook the food evenly. This ensures that the inside is cooked properly, without overdoing or drying out the outside. The sous vide method is primarily used for cooking meat and vegetables.

What is a sous vide machine?

So now that you know what sous vide is, you ask: “What is a sous vide machine?” A sous vide machine is a device used for keeping the water at a constant temperature. It uses a heated metal coil to do its job, and it also has adjustment settings in case you want to adjust the temperature. Some sous vide machine deals that you may find online differ in the features that it offers. There are cheap sous vide machines that even have a built-in timer. Because of that, you will not only be able to control the temperature but also monitor the cooking time — making it a great all-around cooking tool. There are even some with wireless capabilities, enabling you to remotely control the device through an app on your phone.

This extremely rare Land Rover Defender is a work of art
Firmship Defender

The Dutch company Firmship might be best known for its yachts and boats, but its design team has recently taken a spin on a different form of transport. They are looking to the land rather than the water, with a partnership with Land Rover to give a Land Rover Defender a trendy new look. The all black and white look pays homage to nautical styling, but with a modern and minimalist edge.

Firmship worked with Studio Job designer Job Smeets on the Defender, giving the car a tough lacquered exterior to handle any conditions and which has a distinctive texture of its own, similar to the lacquer found on construction equipment or public telephone boxes. In other words, it's built to be tough. But the interior has the comfy luxury you'd expect from a modern car, done in a pallet of pale grey with soft furnishings like the seats and steering wheel.

VW ID.7 Tourer flagship EV will have up to 426 mile range
Station wagons may be a tough sell in the U.S., but Europe is getting a beauty

Volkswagen begins presales in Europe this quarter of the ID.7 Tourer, an estate car version of the VW ID.7 fastback saloon announced last fall as the VW EV flagship. In the U.S., we'd call the ID.7 saloon a sedan and the estate car a station wagon. The photos that accompany this article are of near-production vehicles, VW says.

When VW introduced the ID.7 in November 2023, the company stated it was a worldwide release, and U.S. sales would follow the initial rollout in Europe. The ID.7 Tourer is a good-looking vehicle with more visual impact than the saloon, so I hope VW also decides to sell this newer model in the U.S. Station wagons haven't sold well in the U.S. in recent years unless re-labeled as cross-over utility vehicles (CUVs) -- which could keep the Tourer from our shores.

These are the most affordable luxury cars you can get
Looking for luxury on a budget?
2024 A3 Sedan

After a few years of rampant inflation, it’s easy to believe that affordable cars are a thing of the past and luxury vehicles are well beyond the reach of the average person. But that simply isn’t the case. If you’re into nice cars with some luxury touches, you can still find a new higher-end model for under $40,000. Okay, you’re not going to get a brand-new Rolls Royce at that price, but there are plenty of vehicles from major luxury manufacturers available to you.

If you want cheap luxury, you can look towards the used car market. Luxury cars tend to depreciate quite heavily after a few years. However, a new car is also a possibility. There are some caveats. Cheap new luxury cars tend to either be smaller than more expensive models, or lack certain features that you’re likely to see on vehicles that cost a little more. However, you can still get the luxury car experience from something in a lower price bracket. That includes things like leather interiors, quality suspension, and cutting-edge driver’s aids. Here are four of the cheapest new luxury cars on the market in 2024.
