Haven't tried sous-vide yet... looks great although the timer has a 99 minute limit. What do you like to cook sous-vide and how does it turn out? Any good recipes?

Thanks. There is a step by step recipe on the machine for red meat. But basically you can set 99 minutes, speed 1 reverse, and 55 C for red meat if you prefer more medium rare or 60 C if you want a tad more medium.
Pork is usually a bit higher (65 C or 70 C). I had great result rubbing some steak sauce with apple and tamarind on a pork neck roast, letting it rest in the vac bag overnight in the fridge. Then I cooked sous vide at 70 C. Finally let it cool down, in a cold water bath, then remove bag, pat dry.
I sear the meat in a steel pan, heated at max for a few minutes with a high smoke point oil (peanut). This sears the meat and creates a crunchy exterior.

I have also to say that sous vide makes really good poached eggs:

I am still playing around for the best temperature / time combination. 65 C is perfect for the yolk but the whites need a bit of firming up...
