In an effort to bring an attainably priced and complete Sous Vide cooking package to home cooks everywhere, a group of friends and self-proclaimed “foodies” in the San Diego area of Southern California have launched a Kickstarter campaign for the AquaChef Clarity™, a revolutionary cooking appliance that transforms everyday food into gourmet-quality meals. Vista, California (PRWEB) October 18, 2013 In an effort to bring an attainably priced and complete Sous Vide cooking package to...

Researchers at the University of Sheffield have found a more efficient way to dry products for food manufacture, using tiny, hot bubbles. Instead of boiling a product to evaporate water - the most common technique used by industry - the Sheffield team injected hot microbubbles through the liquid, causing the water to evaporate without boiling. Professor Will Zimmerman, who led the study, explains: "We've applied this principle, called 'cold boiling' to separate water from methanol....

Watch the Video: Boiling Water Without Bubbles April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online How do you tell if water is boiling? You look for the bubbles, because every cook knows boiling water bubbles. But now, research from Northwestern University is turning that notion on its head. “We manipulated what has been known for a long, long time by using the right kind of texture and chemistry to prevent bubbling during boiling,” said Neelesh A. Patankar, professor...

Scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology achieved a 17-percent increase in boiling efficiency by using an acoustic field to enhance heat transfer. The acoustic field does this by efficiently removing vapor bubbles from the heated surface and suppressing the formation of an insulating vapor film. As reported in the American Institute of Physics' (AIP) journal the Physics of Fluids, bubble removal was enhanced because the acoustic field induces capillary waves on the bubble, causing...

By adding an incredibly thin coating of alumina to a metal surface, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have doubled the rate that heat travels from a solid surface — such as a pot on a stove — into the liquid in the pot. The results are published in the American Institute of Physics' journal Applied Physics Letters. Pool boiling is the most common and familiar method of heating a container's contents, and is a remarkably efficient heat transfer method. The...

It may seem illogical, but boiling is a very efficient way to cool engineering components and systems used in the extreme environments of space. An experiment to gain a basic understanding of this phenomena launched to the International Space Station on space shuttle Discovery Feb. 24. The Nucleate Pool Boiling Experiment, or NPBX, is one of two experiments in the new Boiling eXperiment Facility, or BXF. Nucleate boiling is bubble growth from a heated surface and the subsequent detachment of...

By Larry Rulison, Albany Times Union, N.Y. Jul. 4--TROY -- An associate professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has figured out a way to make a pot of water boil more quickly. Nikhil Koratkar and a team of researchers at RPI lined a pot with tiny copper nanorods. They found that the copper material more effectively induced the "phase change" that occurs when the pot is heated to the boiling point, turning the water to vapor. The resulting benefit is that less energy is required...
