Lisa and Abe Fetterman are the two entrepreneurs behind Nomiku, a sous vide cooking device. Sous vide (“under vacuum”) is a method of cooking that involves cooking food in sealed, airtight plastic bags by submerging them in hot water. The food/bags then steam at a low temperature over a long period of time, similar to a slow-cooker. The Fettermans founded Nomiku in 2012 after raising more than $1.3 million on Kickstarter to make their affordable sous vide appliance that can clip on to any pot. The latest Wifi Nomiku, which is available in black and white and can be controlled remotely from anywhere, costs $250.
The Fettermans are looking to raise more money for Nomiku on Shark Tank, which airs Fridays at 9pm on ABC. (The Fetterman’s Nomiku Sous Vide episode airs December 2.) Bonus: Lisa Fetterman is also the author of Sous Vide at Home Cookbook.
