The best part about having such innovative appliances in your home is the sheer simplicity of using the Sous Vide method with AEG's vacuum drawer to infuse your chosen fish with the Mauritian flavours. Brendan says AEG’s SousVide function is an incredibly simple, foolproof method to avoid over cooking your fish.
