How many portions can I cook in my sous vide water bath?

This depends upon the size of the sous vide equipment you are cooking with. To separate bags from one another and to ensure consistent cooking, we suggest using a rack. Using a rack will also allow you to cook larger quantities of foods.

Typically portions would be as follows:

A 10 - 15 litre sous vide water bath should be able to cook between 12 and 16, 6oz (170g) portions.

A 20 - 30 litre sous vide water bath should be able to cook between 24 and 32, 6oz (170g) portions.
