My machine came from eBay. It cost under £300 including the PID Sous Vide water bath, Seal-a-Meal machine, selection of bags, a tenderiser and delivery. So far I am really impressed with the quality. The shelf on the bottom furred up after my first experiment and I couldn't scrub the scale off but that could be because I live in a super hard water area. I am now using Tesco value water in the machine which is soft water instead.
