Sous vide pot with temperature sensor

Hey all,
So I’ve been cooking sous vide a few months now, with a sous vide I built myself. Its connected to a RaspberryPi and can be controlled via the web or telegram.

No soldering required!

Flash a ready made image to the Pi!

Bill of materials

  1. Slow cooker (crockpot) with a ‘high’ option. You can get them second hand, they are pretty cheap. Make sure it has no digital control.
  2. Raspberry Pi, even version 1 should work – also an SD card and power supply for the Pi.
  3. Pi Plate prototype board. Make sure you get one that matches your Raspberry Pi footprint if you are re-using an old Pi.
  4. Solid state relay that can handle mains
  5. Power cables
  6. Data cable to connect the relay to the Pi
  7. Power socket and power connector for your country – get locally so it fits your country standard.
  8. Water resistant temperature sensor DS1820 x2 – Get a spare one so you can measure the temperature difference and make sure your sous vide is uniformly heated.
  9. Important – 3D printed enclosure for raspberrypi (Raspberry Pi 1) and enclosure for the relay – you are mixing water and electricity in a kitchen, don’t be an idiot.
