Great Way to Poach EggsApr 04, 2008

My eggs came out perfectly for me (not runny at all) the first time I used these, which I recorded using my camcorder. I hope it helps to see exactly how to use them. It's fun and easy!

Easy to use. Effective.Dec 09, 2007
I love poached eggs, and was enamored with the absurdity of the color, name, and design of poachpods. I bought them, ripped the tag off, and put them in the cupboard for a month.
I just used them for the first time today, and didn't have the instructions. So I just dropped the eggs in the pod, and placed the pods into lightly boiling water. I replaced the lid, and waited 5 minutes. I then had perfectly poached eggs that were seriously stuck to the poachpod. Whoops. My bad.
SO, a poachpod will give you a perfect egg if you:
1) Boil some water
2) Spray the inside of pods with nonstick spray (or brush with olive oil)
3) Crack the eggs into the pods
4) Turn down the water to low
5) Place the pods into the water (the lilypad effect is pretty sweet)
6) Replace the pot cover
7) Wait 5 minutes
6) Coax the eggs out of the pods onto your plate/toast/english muffin
That's it - exactly how they are supposed to work. No need to buy a dedicated poaching pan. I used a 3 qt saucepan.
Because the top of the pods are out of the water, the "handle" part is not too hot to touch. I had no problem removing the eggs with my hands.

Looks great, but tastes kinda funnyFeb 14, 2008
By J.R. Kim
First of all, these things work well. They make poaching eggs quite easy, as long as you make sure to oil the pods. I poured a few drops of oil into each pod, then used my finger to coat the walls; this resulted in the cooked egg coming out clean, no sticking.
The only reason i rated this 3 stars is because my eggs taste just like the way the pods smell. Maybe its a one time thing, who knows, but i made sure to wash them beforehand.
So as far as function goes, ill give it 4 1/2 stars, but because of the taste of the eggs, i have to knock down some points.

wasted stepDec 26, 2010
I tried these out to streamline my Sunday brunch services at my restaurant. I thought they might be nice for home, too. I tested them out on a slower day and they failed miserably. The eggs did not cook evenly, as the plastic is a poor conductor (I should have known better) and the overall extended cooking time made the white rubbery and I found a nice soft poach was not as easy as with my preferred method, which is to place the cracked eggs directly in simmering water with an ACID, like vinegar of lemon juice. It only takes a drop and you will literally see the reaction happen in front of your eyes, the albumen will almost immediately begin to form a perfect ovular shape. Then all that is needed to remove the eggs is a slotted spoon. This is by far the best way to achieve a controlled poach in my eyes.

Pretty eggs, but retain odors and tasteJan 03, 2008
These cups make very picture-perfect poached eggs, but they retain odors and tastes.
To use simply coat the inisde of the cups with oil or cooking spray and place them in a large pot of boiling water. As the water approaches boiling, drop an egg in the cup, turn down the heat and cook for 4-5 minutes (less if you want softer eggs). To remove the eggs, simple spoon out the perfectly formed eggs. You can also flip the cups inside out, if you are very heat-reistant hands.
Not coating the cups with oil will create a sticky mess.
But that's not the bad news. After about five uses, the eggs from my cups starting tasting exactly like I would imagine my dish soap would taste if I ate it. I had forgotten to coat the cups with oil the last time I used them so I had to soak them for a bit in hot soap water to loosen the glued on eggs. Apparently that was enough to get the dish soap scent in the cups and passed on to the eggs. Yuk! I've tried everything (baking soda, freezing, etc.) to remove the smell and resulting taste, with no success.
