The equipment keeps the temperature steady so it's really set-it-and-forget-it. The rest of the process is to make sure the food stays in the bag and that the heat can transfer effectively (hence the vacuum). You don't really need a vacuum sealer; immersion technique is sufficient.
For your first try I would suggest using stuff around the house. Cut a salmon fillet no more than an inch thick and put it in a ziplock bag using the immersion technique (I suggest adding a lemon slice and some dill with it). If your home tap water comes out hot enough (125F/50C), then you're lucky. If not, fill an 8+qt pot with water on the stovetop and a use a thermometer to get it to 125F/50C. Put hot water in a bowl, then add the bag and leave it for 30 minutes. You may need to add new hot water once or twice. Pop the fillet out and it's ready.
You'll know then if it's something you want to invest in because exchanging water and monitoring temperature for just 30 minutes sucks and you can't imagine doing it for hours.

Great suggestion. Using a picnic cooler with a probe thermometer might also be a slightly less tedious way of testing this with beef or pork if you need to leave it for a longer cooking time.

Looking for my first mirrorless. Help?
I've been looking into getting my first mirrorless camera. My budget is sub $500 for body only. I have been comparing the Sony A6000 and the Panasonic G7. I mostly take pictures but I go to the occasional event. I want to hear your opinions on each camera. Thanks! kbwarriors EDIT: I bought a Sony A6000 and a Sigma 19mm F/2.8. I am very pleased!

Mute Function on PC37X isn't working as intended
I purchased the Sennheiser PC37X Gaming Headset for use on conference calls with my iPhone X. I love them, however, I learned recently through an awkward experience that the boom up mute function does not work on my headset as intended. Are others having a similar experience where moving the mic into a vertical position does not mute the headset?
