We watch with bated breath.
Harold McGee answered a good question about cooking with Ziploc bags in 2008 for the New York Times Diner's Journal:
"Q: Are conventional zip-loc bags safe for sous-vide cooking? If so, up to what temperature? There seems to be a lot of guess work and misinformation (?) about this one on the internet. Love your books! Thank you.

Harold McGee replies: Heavy-duty Ziplock bags are made from polyethylene and are approved for contact with hot foods. True sous-vide cooking involves vacuum-packing the food, which zipping a bag won’t do for you. But you can certainly use the bag to immerse food in a water bath whose temperature you control carefully. It can be hard to squeeze out all the air, so the bags tend to float and heat unevenly unless you weigh them down. Sous-vide cooking generally involves water temperatures between 120 and 180 degrees, which the heavy-duty bags can take."
I totally agree that more updates are better than none. There's nothing worse than a Kickstarter project that goes silent once it funds, so please keep 'em comin'!
More Communication > No Communication. Some projects have 0 updates for months on end. Plus I like the enthusiasm in each of the updates :)
Also, I agree that I like the update frequency. If you don't want to get the emails about them, you can click on the "Me" thing in the top left corner, go to "Edit Settings", "Notifications" tab, and uncheck anything that you don't want to be pinged about. Just remember to log into Kickstarter once a week or so at least to see if any notifications have been posted that you care about. =)
Yeah, its not like they are showing up on your doorstep for the updates.
Please make the D.C. area one of the cities available to vote on for the Sous Vide parties.
Cant wait for Christmas this year!
You can unsubscribe from the updates if you want. I for one LOVE THEM! So excited about what team Nomiku is doing. So proud of you guys!!
just ignore them Dan. It's easy.
WAY too many updates. Please stop.
