Incorrect.
Boiling temperature is at 100 degrees Celsius (212 degrees Fahrenheit) (give or take based on factors such as elevation), you can certainly cook NEAR that temperature with A SousVide Supreme as it can be set to 99 degrees Celsius (210 degrees Fahrenheit). I'm sure other brands can do so as well, possibly even be set to boiling.

Sorry, I wasn't clear - this isn't a limitation of the equipment but that most foods contain water. As you approach the boiling point of water, more and more water enters vapor state (the bag puffs up into a balloon) which impedes the heat transfer.

I just use a Ranco ec 111000-000 temperature controller to keep my oven at any given temperature, to dehydrate, to hold 110F to make yogurt and move it over to a deep fat fryer filled with water for Sous vide. so I have this fantastic temperature controller for $50 . that has unlimited possibilities.

Just think about what you want to do and do it.

Me too, I've been experimenting with a small all steel deep fryer (from Taurus) and a kitchen thermometer...
