My Mom’s Egg Poacher

If you have ever poached eggs, you know that the egg whites often get stuck to the pan in spite of one’s best efforts, and you would know that it can be difficult to get the egg white off of the pan. Recently we received 2 sets of “Poach Pods”. These are silicone cups that can be used to poach eggs. The pods apparently float in the water, even when it is boiling, and the eggs cook in nice little eggy blobs, no whites leaking about. The pods can also be used to bake things, like cupcakes, but as you probably know, there are silicone muffin cups, so it’s probably not the best use of the Poach Pods.

We have yet to use the pods, so a full report on their effectiveness will follow sometime in the future.

If you have the Poach Pods and have used them, please report on their effectiveness.

    My mum gave me some poach pods before I came back to Uni, I haven’t used mine in a saucepan though, they are used in a microwave which is efficient as it saves on using tools and such (like a pan). Just crack the eggs, add a certain amount of water, microwave and bam, delicious poached eggs!

    Maybe these are for the microwave, too! I must read the instructions from start to finish to check. Thanks, Marian!!
