Where to buy a Sous Vide Supreme?

My husband has agreed to buy me a sous vide machine for Christmas! So, to make sure I get one, I was hoping to be able to tell him exactly where to pick one up! Anyone seen one? How about price? I know it sells in the US for about $450. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    1. I use PolyScience Sous Vide Thermal Circulator at work, work very well but a bit pricey

      1. You won't be able to find this in retail stores up here. You may be able to get it at Sur La Table which is a housewares chain in the states. Otherwise your best bet is to order it direct and ship it to a parcel service near the border. They use UPS so don't let them send it direct to you unless you like paying for brokerage fees.

        1. Thanks for your reponses. I ended up checking it out online and Sous Vide Supreme has a special offer on right now. For $469 CDN, you get the machine as well as a vacuum sealer with bags and a cookbook. Obviously it`s still quite an investment, but it is a good deal nevertheless. They also have a promotion for the smaller version for $299.95 which also includes the cookbook and then some bags but no sealer. Childofthestorm, perhaps you should do some heavy hinting, maybe you can get lucky too!

            $300 is getting within the realm of possibility...let us know how it goes for you with buying and shipping.

            1. re: childofthestorm

              Shipping was $40, but they were not able to tell me how much duties might be. I will post with this info once I receive it, but I won`t be able to do it until after Dec 12th as I will be away.

                Keep in mind that's for UPS Standard shipping and you will get hit hard for brokerage fees. The alternative is paying even more for Express service which covers brokerage fees. If you can spare a couple hours, it's worth the drive to Niagara Falls. You can have it shipped to the UPS depot for pickup. They don't charge you for holding like the parcel services. However you only have 5 business days to pick up.

                  Sbug, that was really good advice. I looked into this and you`re right, I do end up saving money this way. The Express service costs $40 more but brokerage fees were estimated to be $56. I have placed my order and am now bracing myself for the duties and taxes. I will post when I receive it for those of you who are interested.

                  I should mention that I originally arranged for them to send it to a US resort where I was going for vacation (which is now cancelled) and that would have saved a bundle because SVS offers free shipping in the US. Sbug`s idea of having it shipped to a US location is a great idea if you are able to make the drive out.

              Old thread but Goldas Kitchen in Mississauga now sells these.

              Only reason I post now is I just started looking into the units and found this thread.

                Since late last year Cederlane, the company that makes the SousVide Supreme (and Demi) has a Canadian office and distribution facility. There's a store locator on their web site

                At present Golda's is the only place in the GTA

                There is also a Canadian online store so you can now order it without brokerage etc.

                1. re: bytepusher

                  They have a great deal on right now for the combo pack (machine, sealer, some bags) for $469 +$9 shipping in Canada. I found promo code "FOODIE" which knocks another $20 off the price of the machine!

              1. re: countingpulses

                That's not the Sous Vide Supreme and it's twice the price. I also doubt you'd find that in store. Definitely not in the Canadian stores.
