The poachpod is a flexible silicone cooking tool for poaching eggs, baking and molding. The poachpod allows you to float and poach an egg in boiling water like a lily pad on a pond. When the egg is ready, flip the non-stick pod inside out and gently push the perfectly domed-shaped egg out. Place the pod in the dishwasher for easy clean up. Never be fearful of making poached eggs again.

That said, THIS set is my favorite of the three, and the one I go back to use over and over again. I think the silicone in these is slightly thicker and for some reason they seem to hold their shape better. They sell a lifter for them, but come on.... anyone who does any amount of cooking whatsoever would have no problem pulling these out of boiling water. I mean, obviously you turn the water OFF first.... and they don't sink under so low that you can't fish one corner out by your fingertips without even getting wet.
It is really IMPORTANT to spray the insides of the poach pods with PAM or some other nonstick spray. I like to use an all-olive-oil spray, and that does work. The eggs will come out either way, but they won't GLIDE out unless you spray the inside of the pods. That is true no matter what brand pods you get. If you don't spray them first, the eggs will *mostly* come out but the bottoms won't be smooth cause some egg will stick to the pod, and then your cleanup job is also harder.
Each of the sets of pods I bought was JUST slightly different in size. These are the smallest. That means they will make the most, well, spherical shaped poached eggs. If you're eating poached eggs by themselves, or on top of other stuff, this is fine, they will be like cute little domes of breakfast goodness. If you are making a sandwich though, you will want a larger diameter pod.
I can't recommend them highly enough, and they're not even expensive so you really can't go wrong!
You do have to spray them with something like Pam, or coat them with butter or coconut oil; but when they're done, they slip out perfectly. (A tiny rubber spatula can help the occasional recalcitrant egg.)
It will take a try or two, to figure out how long to cook the eggs with your particular poaching 'style'; I let them simmer VERY gently for 7 minutes, which results in a firm white and a runny yolk. You need to test the white with the point of a sharp knife, a little while before you expect them to be done. The reason is, steam falling from the top of your pan may make the whites still look runny, when actually it is only a thin film of water on top of a fully-cooked white.
They come out smaller in diameter, and taller, than the typical round poached egg cooked in a little poaching pan; but I haven't found that a problem. And I would recommend that you buy the lifting tool - it's a lot easier than using a big spoon to lift them out.
I put them in the kitchen sink, to spray with Pam, and crack the eggs in; pick them up by two of the corners, and gently place them in the boiling water; then turn the water down to a low simmer and cover. Use the lifter tool to remove them.
I've thought of purchasing the new metal ones, with the non-stick surface; but I've read the reviews, and it appears that you still should grease those. I can't think that they would work any better than the silicone ones do when properly greased.
A great little tool, and the ease of using it has increased my consumption of poached eggs ;-)
