Hardware

Power (watts)

Yedi Infinity:
1000 watts
 
Yedi Total Package:
1000 watts
 
Generally, the higher the wattage, the more power. If you're looking to heat a lot of water, or want to have a sous vide that heats up quickly, this is an important factor for you to consider.

Voltage

Yedi Infinity
120v
Yedi Total Package
120v
Voltage is what makes electric charges move. But for this comparison, it's just important to note that appliances in the USA use 110-120v, while Europe uses 220–240v. Map for reference.

Hertz

Yedi Infinity
60hz
Yedi Total Package
60hz
Hertz is the frequency unit of the vibration cycle time. But, again, for this comparison, it's just important to note that USA uses 60hz, and Europe uses 50hz. Map for reference.

Height (in.)

Yedi Infinity:
14.5 in.
 
Yedi Total Package:
14.4 in.
 
The smaller the sous vide, the less space it takes up. However, size can sometimes come with a trade-off in power. We generally favor smaller sous vides over larger ones, because most people won't be cooking for a restaurant of people.

Tube Diameter (in.)

Yedi Infinity:
2.6 in.
 
Yedi Total Package:
2.25 in.
 
The tube diameter determines how much space you have left in your pot or container for placing your food. We think a smaller diameter is better, as it gives you more space in your container to fit more food.

Weight (lbs.)

Yedi Infinity:
4.8 lbs.
 
Yedi Total Package:
4.3 lbs.
 
Weight is pretty self-explanatory. We think that the lighter the sous vide, the better.

Length of Power Cord (in.)

Yedi Infinity:
Unknown
 
Yedi Total Package:
36 in.
 
An often overlooked feature. The longer the cord, the more freedom you have to cook where you want to. And sometimes, there just isn't enough space around your outlet. Definitely keep the length of cord in mind when choosing the right sous vide for your kitchen.

Set Flow Direction Manually

Yedi Infinity
Unknown
Yedi Total Package
Unknown
Sous vides heat and circulate water around the cooking container. Most sous vides control the flow automatically, evenly heating the entire pot. However, some sous vides allow you to set the water flow direction manually, in case you've got an oddly shaped container. We think this is a small benefit, but overall, not super impactful.

360° Directional Pump

Yedi Infinity:
Unknown
 
Yedi Total Package:
Unknown
 
The 360° directional pump is a standard feature in most sous vides. Unlike the previous feature (manual flow direction), the 360° pump automatically circulates water in all directions, helping keep temperatures consistent throughout the container.

Maximum Temperature (°F)

Yedi Infinity:
203°F
 
Yedi Total Package:
203°F
 
Obviously, the higher the maximum temperature, the better. The more temperature range, the more you're able to cook. We also consider it an overall indicator of a sous vide's power.

Minimum Temperature (°F)

Yedi Infinity:
77°F
 
Yedi Total Package:
77°F
 
Much like the maximum temperature, the lower the minimum temperature, the better. As we stated before, the more temperature range, the more you're able to cook.

Temperature Setting (Smallest Increment °F)

Yedi Infinity:
0.5°F
 
Yedi Total Package:
0.5°F
 
The smaller the increment setting, the more precise you can be with your cooking. If a recipe says cook something at 153°, but you have a sous vide that can only select either 150° or 155°, it's going to be a bit disappointing. We definitely feel this is an important feature to consider.

Flow Rate/Pump (gallons/min.)

Yedi Infinity:
Unknown
 
Yedi Total Package:
Unknown
 
The flow rate is the amount of water that the sous vide can pump per minute. The more it can pump, the faster the container can heat and remain heated. Flow rate is another measure of sous vide strength.

Motor Speed (revolutions/min.)

Yedi Infinity:
Unknown
 
Yedi Total Package:
Unknown
 
Motor speed is how many revolutions per minute the sous vide's motor can spin. Much like flow rate, the motor speed is an indicator of the sous vide's strength. The faster, the better. However, it's important to note that most manufacturers don't measure their motor speed.

Max Water Capacity (gal.)

Yedi Infinity:
4 gal.
 
Yedi Total Package:
4 gal.
 
The max water capacity is the maximum amount recommended by the manufacturer. The higher the maximum, the more food you can cook, and the stronger the sous vide. So it goes without saying that the higher the capacity, the better the score.

Max. Water Line (in.)

Yedi Infinity
Unknown
Yedi Total Package
6 in.
The max water line is the maximum height that water level can be on the sous vide heating tube. Think of it like a tea kettle: if you overfill it, when it boils, the water can come out of the pot. With the sous vide, if the water is too high, it can damage the machine. On it's on, this isn't a massive factor in scoring a sous vide, but it's something to keep in mind.

Min. Water Line (in.)

Yedi Infinity:
Unknown
 
Yedi Total Package:
2.25 in.
 
The minimum water line is the opposite of the maximum water line. It's the area of the sous vide heating tube that must be covered by water. The lower the minimum line, the less water necessary for the sous vide to work. Generally, we think the lower the minimum line, the better.

Minimum Container Depth (in.)

Yedi Infinity:
5.5 in.
 
Yedi Total Package:
5.5 in.
 
Some sous vides are too large, or have a clamp that's too high, to fit on specific containers. This is where a minimum container depth comes into play. Generally, the smaller, the better, because you shouldn't be required to have giant containers to run the sous vide.

Noise Level (db.)

Yedi Infinity:
Unknown
 
Yedi Total Package:
Unknown
 
Noise level is somewhat important, as you don't want to be distracted by your sous vide cooking your food. Not many manufacturers measure the noise level, but for those that do, we wanted to include it. Here's a noise level reference.

Maximum Clamp Opening (in.)

Yedi Infinity:
Unknown
 
Yedi Total Package:
0.6 in.
 
The clamp which holds the sous vide in place on the container can open this amount of inches. This is especially important to note if the container(s) you plan on cooking in have thick walls or a lip/edge that's wide.

Adjustable Height Clamp

Yedi Infinity
No
Yedi Total Package
No
An adjustable height clamp allows you to choose how much of the heating tube goes into the water. This makes it much easier to get the correct water height on the sous vide heating tube.

Detachable Height Clamp

Yedi Infinity
No
Yedi Total Package
No
The height clamp is the piece on the side of the sous vide that keeps it attached to the container. When it's detachable, it makes it easier to clean and store.

Digital Display (LCD/LED)

Yedi Infinity
Yes
Yedi Total Package
Yes
A majority of sous vides have an LED/LCD screen, which let you interface with the machine. Some sous vides can only be operated via an LCD/LED screen, others only use an app, and some use both. We'd stick to finding a sous vide with a screen and an app if possible.

Manual Temperature Calibration

Yedi Infinity
Unknown
Yedi Total Package
Unknown
There are times where after a lot of use, the sous vide can be off by a few degrees from what the temperature reading says. With manual calibration, you can correct the machine to make sure it's accurate.

Built-in Refrigeration

Yedi Infinity
No
Yedi Total Package
No
With built-in refrigeration, you can place your food directly into the container in the morning (or whenever), and it'll keep it refrigerated until you've scheduled it to cook.

Removable Skirt / Bottom Cap

Yedi Infinity
Yes
Yedi Total Package
Yes
The skirt/cap is the bottom cover part of the sous vide. With a removable skirt/cap, you can more easily clean the sous vide. However, we don't know how often you'll need to clean the sous vide, as the only thing you'll be heating is water (unless a bag breaks or something).

Color

Yedi Infinity
Black
Yedi Total Package
Black/Silver
Color really comes down to preference. You'll basically be choosing between white, black, and metal.

Durability

Upper Tube Material (for Handling)

Yedi Infinity:
Plastic
 
Yedi Total Package:
Plastic
 
This is just a nice quality of life feature for your sous vide. Upper tubes that are made of metal feel nice to handle, and really give you the impression of a durable, quality sous vide.

Lower Tube Material (for Cooking)

Yedi Infinity:
Plastic
 
Yedi Total Package:
Stainless Steel
 
The standard heating tube is stainless steel. We'd be highly cautious of purchasing any sous vide that doesn't have a heating tube that's stainless steel.

Max Single Cook Time (hrs.)

Yedi Infinity:
100 hrs.
 
Yedi Total Package:
100 hrs.
 
For most cooking, this feature won't be super important. But in the event that you need to cook for a long time, the max single cook time lets you know how long the sous vide will stay on and cooking.

Water & Splash Resistance

Yedi Infinity:
Unknown
 
Yedi Total Package:
Unknown
 
The upper and lower halves of the sous vide have different purposes: the upper is for handling the sous vide, and the lower half goes in the water. But it's nice to have a sous vide which has a nice splash resistance. IP 67 is the best, IPX7 is second best.

Low Water-level Alarm

Yedi Infinity
Yes
Yedi Total Package
Yes
If there isn't enough water in the cooking container to cover the minimum water line on the heating tube, the sous vide will notify you with an alert/noise.

Low Water-level Shut-off

Yedi Infinity
Yes
Yedi Total Package
Yes
If there isn't enough water in the container to cover the minimum water line, the sous vide will automatically shut off. This is a nice protection feature for your sous vide.

Warranty (yrs.)

Yedi Infinity:
2 yrs.
 
Yedi Total Package:
2 yrs.
 
The longer the warranty, the more belief the manufacturer has in their product. It's pretty self-explanatory, the longer the warranty, the better the score.

Manual Controls

Yedi Infinity
Yes
Yedi Total Package
Yes
Some sous vides operate only with an app, others only with buttons on the sous vide itself, and some with both buttons and app. We think it's nice to have manual controls as a backup if the app should somehow have issues.

Buttons

Yedi Infinity:
Touch Screen
 
Yedi Total Package:
Touch Screen
 
Buttons are an important thing to consider when choosing a sous vide. Some sous vides operate only with an app, others only with buttons on the sous vide itself. Which you prefer will

Can Operate in Celsius

Yedi Infinity
Yes
Yedi Total Package
Yes
Important for those those who get a lot of recipes from foreign countries, operating in Celsius is a great quality of life feature.

Alert Sounds (Beeping, etc.)

Yedi Infinity
Yes
Yedi Total Package
Yes
Alert sounds are a nice quality feature to consider when purchasing a sous vide. The feedback noises are appreciated whether it's just pressing buttons on the interface, alerting you to a problematic water level, or even just when your food has finished cooking.

Has Timer

Yedi Infinity
Yes
Yedi Total Package
Yes
A basic, necessary component of any sous vide. Most sous vides have a built-in timer. And if it doesn't have one, it's a bit questionable.

Delay Timer/Scheduling

Yedi Infinity
No
Yedi Total Package
No
Some sous vides will let you set a delay on the timer start. This means you can prep your meal before work and set the sous vide to start start cooking an hour before you get home. It's a great additional feature to have.

Time Setting (Smallest interval)

Yedi Infinity:
1min
 
Yedi Total Package:
1min
 
Some recipes require short, specific amounts of time cooking. The time interval setting is quite valuable for these types of recipes. Most sous vides have 1min or 5min interval.

Automatic Shut-down (when timer ends)

Yedi Infinity
Yes
Yedi Total Package
Yes
Some sous vides have an automatic shutdown when the timer ends. It's a super handy feature in the event that you forget about the timer or something takes you away from the kitchen. It can save you on the electricity bill and putting unnecessary hours on the machine.

Connection

Yedi Infinity:
No
 
Yedi Total Package:
No
 
Connections lets you know whether or not the sous vide has Bluetooth, WiFi, both, or neither. When a sous vide has the connection feature, it allows you to control your sous vide from outside the kitchen.
