head added...have reserved one for my hubbys bday.... he loves eggs...lol

We recently bought these uber cool poaching pods from lakeland. They are made from silicon and are really easy to use. Makes poaching a doddle. I think you can bake in them also as they are heat resistant to 800 degrees!

I love how they float about freely on the water, a bit like a floating candle in the bath. Don't eat them though haha.

Ooh, I'm just waiting on some of these to be delivered :thumbsup: Probably would have gone for the pan if it'd been on offer when I was looking though.

Surely there not the same as real poached eggs if there not cooked in water?

I love poached eggs... how do the pods compare... i have a pretty good technique from Jamie Oliver to minimise the wandering white! really works....

I threw away my old poacher (which was a bit battered) and bought this one a while back. I wish I had kept my old one. No matter how much you grease the cups, the eggs still stick and I mean really stick. My advice is, don't bother!

I suppose it's not "traditional", but I doubt cooking them in water adds to the flavour.

What's your technique? I've tried various and I always end up with a big watery mess unless I wrap the eggs in cling film.

The trick with making "perfect" poached eggs is heat the water until its bubbling,then turn down the heat,add about a tsp of vinegar and swirl the water like mad with a whisk to create a whirlpool effect,then crack the eggs in.The swirling keeps the eggs together in a round shape and the vinegar holds them all together.You can't taste the vinegar when made.Hope that helps.

Cheers, tried both techniques ... although possibly not together.
