Cracking an egg and getting it through that small hole looks a bit tricky


I'm pretty good at getting things into small holes so might give it a go

Use a good quality oil and don't worry about all this low fat nonsense! Healthy fats are good for you, it's artificial sweeteners and excess sugar that are harmful for the body.

Looks like too much hassle. I have to oil it up and get in a tiny hole and put water on the side..........

Just poach the old way or fry the damn eggs.

Just microwave poach them. Poach them in the egg box, one minute full power for each egg. Simply slip off the shell once cooked and use in your recipe as normal. [don't try this at home, folks]

Seriously, I tried these Oxo egg poaching things here: Oxo egg ring and they were okay. You need quite a deep saute pan to get the water level high enough, or use a large saucepan. My view is if you're going to have a poached egg, water should be involved.

How much water
Type 'silicone egg rings' in ebay search and you'll find less complicated ones from £1-£2, in various shapes -- heart, flower, and rabbit's head etc.(mostly from China, though).
another piece of kitchen equipment for the "the sales blurb looked so good..." drawer.

How much water


about 1/3 cup? just so theres enough for egg to be surrounded if that makes sense? x

Same price for round ones in most supermarkets
The egg seals ok providing you have got the pan at a nice temperature and smeared oil as instructed. I also tried the lightest of smears on the base of the pan. But as soon as water is added it leaks everywhere. It leaked faster than I could fill the thing. Several spoonfuls later I gave up and had two poorly cooked eggs. It needs a bit of weight behind it if it's going to seal. Not even going to the back of the cupboard, straight in the bin.

Great theory but doesn’t really work. The seal isn’t as good as heavier silicone rings so more egg leaks out - make sure pan is hot so egg seals it. Hole quite small so yolk broke of a duck egg I used. When you put the water in, some inevitably leaks out into the rest of the pan so you get it spitting and also spoiling anything else you have in the same pan. If you are cooking multiple things in the same pan it doesn’t work. I’d go for solid open silicon rings and just splash the tops with oil, or if you are trying to use less oil then just put a plate or lid on the pan.

Crazy!
Honestly, i've spent a lot of time in the last year perfecting the look of fried eggs.(part of another cooking project)
The simplest and healthy way that gives perfect looking whites with proper yellow yokes which are not snotty is time.
Basically, use a non stick pan. Smear a little oil over the cooking area. Break the egg into a cup first. This gives you a chance if any shell drops in. It also lets you make sure the yolk hasn't split.
Carefully pour the egg into the pan. Use a very low heat. It the egg starts to "Chuck" the heat is too high.
Give it time, and the whites will stay smooth and pure and won't burn. The yolk dome will also start to cook, but will not go white.
When you see the yolk outer ring start to change colour, the egg is done.
Don't use a spatula, simply pour the egg onto the plate.
Whether you think they taste any better is subjective, but they do look like those perfect eggs you see in adverts.

This microwave egg cooker is good.

Ive 3 different types of these things...including a microwave one....all pants and too much flaffing around....

I've come to the conclusion of you want a poach egg...boil water

Worked a treat but fishing it out was a pain and the coffee tasted awful.

One of those ideas that look great but awful in practice. This would go in the gadget graveyard cupboard without a doubt.

So true. Mrs bought a rack that has the singular lack of ability to hold any shape dish or plate safely. Overpriced tat.
If you want to poach eggs and have them maintain a perfect round shape, not dispersing in the water, then you need to:
1) boil kettle, pour water in bowl, and lower intact egg into bowl for 1 minute, then take out
2) crack egg into shallow frying pan of water that is just below bubbling temperature
3) leave for 6 minutes, then remove with slotted spoon

More of a faff than microwaving an egg in a mug, but will produce perfect poached eggs every time.
Why all this talk about poaching eggs? This devise, inadequate as it might be, is for a fried egg!

It's actually for froached eggs!
Aldi has a gadget which will boil eggs to the desired softness or poach at the flip of a switch.
Flip the switch, go upstairs to brush your teeth ... The eggs are ready by the time you finished brushing.
For those who microwave your eggs. Try making it on a fry pan - taste is soo much better. With a little bit of practice you can make it and moreover - this is satisfying also If you have more time, add some red onion beneath it, if more - chop a bit of good ham or european sausage and sprinkle with fine chopped tomato on top, at the end of the process.. You will get tasty, complete meal.
The other option for a perfect fried egg is one of those tiny one egg frying pans.
