Addelice is a German company that designs, manufactures and distributes the Swid since 2009.
Since January 2016 Addelice proposes, in addition to the 2-years manufaturer warranty, a 2-years warranty extension for EUR 65 incl. VAT.
In 2009 Addélice was the first company in the world to design an immersion circulator dedicated to sous vide. Now we are the first to propose up to 4 years warranty!
Warranty extensions are often poorly perceived by consumers, for good reasons. Main consumer associations’ criticisms are the following:
- The extension of warranty is not useful,
- The warranty extension does not cover wear parts,
- The warranty extension is nominative and can not be ceded in case of resale of the device…
A sous vide immersion circulator is a device that can be used by the professional 24/24, 6 days a week and 10 months out of 12. The Swid is constantly exposed to water vapor and high temperatures. In other words, the Swid is subjected to intensive use. An extension of warranty is therefore not as useless as it seems compared to an electronic or mechanical device that would be used only rarely.
Addelice undertakes to cover all parts of the Swid, including wear and tear, with the exception of parts with aesthetic defects (scratches, etc.).
Addélice warranty extension is transferable. You can resell it with your Swid.

In 2016, the German Foodservice-equipement.de website published a comparison of the three most representative sous vide immersion circulators available on the German market:
– The LV.50 (Lavide)
– The Swid (Addelice)
– The FusionChef Pearl (Julabo)
The comparison (in German) is available in Pdf format on the Food Service Equipment website. To download this comparison you can also click on the image below.
We have translated for you the final comment of the review for each immersion circulator. The result is without appeal! The Swid is certainly the best value for money.
LV.50 by Lavide:
“The Lv50 is a good immersion circulator for intensive use, but its low power capacity is not acceptable for a midrange device. Regardless of its excellent performance you need to consider whether it is justified to pay EUR 300 more (than the Swid) while having 63% less power.
Conclusion: too expensive in terms of performance. ”
Swid by Addelice:
“The Swid of Addelice is a robust immersion circulator. You must look beyond the plastic casing. The 3 mm thick steel structure quickly compensates for this point. The Swid’s power is identical to the FusionChef Pearl, for a much lower price. The price of the Swid is also more competitive compared to the Lavide LV.50.
Conclusion: the winner value for money price (based on objective criterion). ”
Pearl by FusionChef:
“The FusionChef Pearl comes from the laboratory world and benefits from Julabo’s experience. However, if an ultra-stability of ± 0.02 ° C may be required in the laboratory, we doubt about such needs for culinary applications The power of the pump is appreciable but the latter can be damaged in case of contact with a foreign body.
Fusion Chef only issues the Pearl price on request. The cheapest price we found on the internet was EUR 1,000 excl. VAT.
Conclusion: better mixing of water (objective criterion), beautiful look (subjective criterion). ”
Final conclusion of the test: “In order to carry out this comparison, the Editorial team has tested these 3 immersion circulators. The Swid by Addélice has proved its performance and reliability over the last 3 years of use.
The three devices tested can be considered as suitable for intensive professional use. ”
