Q and Abe have turned a complicated cooking tool to a simple gadget that anyone can use. Nomiku is a sous vide cooking accessory that ensures a pot of water stays at a consistent temperature. The technique is often used by professional chefs, and immersion circulators can cost upwards of $1,000. However, the Nomiku is able to retail for just $299 so anyone can now cook the perfect medium-rare steak, or succulent ribs.

Sous vide is the process of putting the meat and the ingredients into an airtight bag, and letting it boil in a precise heat of water bath. The Nomiku is compact appliance that clips onto any pot and can be easily stored away when not in use.
