Product Description

For a quick breakfast poach 1-2 eggs in minutes with this egg poacher. The non-stick surface allows for easy cooking and cleaning.

Amazon.com

Use this simple microwave cooker to take the fuss out of poaching eggs. Place 1/2 teaspoon of water in each 3-inch cup. Add a cracked egg to each cup and pierce yolks lightly. Snap lid closed and microwave to taste. (Cooking times vary depending on the microwave's power.) Let stand a minute or two to finish cooking. Open lid and serve gold-and-white poached eggs on toasted English muffins, over hash, or with potato pancakes. The 7-1/2-inch poacher, made of hard plastic, should be hand washed. --Fred Brack

I gave it 4 stars because:

(1) The instructions aren't on the product itself.

(2) I still prefer poached eggs on the stove.

However, perhaps this will help those of you struggling with why the darn thing won't work for YOU:

(1) Most instructions are written for 700 watt microwaves.

(2) Your microwave is likely not 700 watts if your results are bad. (Assuming you follow the other instructions re water, piercing the yolk, etc.)

(3) If you don't know the wattage of your oven, use this chart -- [...]-- and a cup of water to determine your wattage.

(4) Once you have your wattage, use this chart -- [...]-- and select YOUR oven's wattage then go to that chart to determine the correct cooking time for you.

For example, my oven is 1100 watts (I cheated and looked at the manual, but I should boil water now and again in case it changes):

Step 1 -- I go to the chart for 1100 watt conversion from 700 watt here -- [...]

Step 2 -- On the packaging AND on the company website for this product, they say that two eggs should be 1 minute 15 seconds. I look for 1 minute 15 seconds and find that I should actually cook them in MY microwave for 48 seconds.

Step 3 -- I follow the rest of the instructions (1/2 teaspoon of water per egg, pierce the yolk once, close the device firmly, leave it shut for at least 30 seconds or more afterward so the whites will cook completely), then voila, perfect poached eggs (except, yes, the bottoms are rounded).

My microwave has a rotating glass plate, so your results may vary unless you have one of those or you invest in one of the micro-go-round type products. I suspect that is what makes both eggs cook evenly.

Hope that helps. Heck, for $2.00, this little thing works like a charm.

(And no, I don't work for NordicWare!)

I have owned this poacher for about five years, and we poach eggs several times a week. So this little item has had quite a workout in our home, probably poaching hundreds of eggs, until one of the hinges broke off.

Here are some tricks to getting perfectly poached eggs in this gadget:
1) nonstick spray both cups
2) add 2 teaspoons water apiece (to get that "poached" texture)
3) cook in a microwave oven that has a turntable; and
4) experiment with the "right" time to poach in your own oven, since wattages vary a great deal. (I use 1 minute on 50%, but your oven is different)

I'm replacing my purchase today; also buying a 4-egg poacher because we use it so often.

First of all, I must say that if I had realized how easy it would be to use this poacher, I would have purchased it years ago. Yes, there is an adjustment period you need to go through to understand how this will work in your particular oven, but once you are past that, you're all set.

I love poached eggs and for me it took too long to boil the water, slide the egg in gently, take it out and drain it before eating it. This little gadget does the trick!

I have a 1000 watt microwave & here's what I do for 2 eggs:

1. Briefly spray each side w/cooking spray
2. Crack the eggs & put one in each side
3. Take a fork & pierce the yolk AND white several times. (you don't want to scramble it, just make sure it's pierced good)
4. Add 1/2 teaspoon of water to each well (on top of the egg)
5. Close the lid
6. Microwave for 1:20 (1min 20sec) at 70% power (you will hear some popping)
7. Let it sit for at least 30 seconds to complete cooking

For 1 egg:
1. Briefly spray one side w/cooking spray
2. Crack the egg into the side you just sprayed
3. Take a fork & pierce the yolk AND white several times. (you don't want to scramble it, just make sure it's pierced good)
4. Add 1/2 teaspoon of water to EACH well
5. Close the lid
6. Microwave for 50 seconds at 70% power (you will hear some popping)
7. Let it sit for at least 30 seconds to complete cooking

This gives me eggs that are cooked just right, not too hard and not runny. They slide right out of the wells and they are perfect for an egg sandwich with English muffins. You could also get started on an egg salad with this if you wanted.

Overall, this is one of my better buys for the kitchen.

This tool is not as good as poaching an egg in water, but it is much quicker and easier.

People who have had problems with it bursting open are probably doing one or two things wrong:

1. Too much water. You only need a few drops of water per cup. You don't need to top it off or even come close. More than just a few drops of water will build up too much steam, thus causing it to burst open in the microwave.

2. Cooking at too high a temperature. I set my microwave for 80 seconds at 50% power. This allows the egg to cook thoroughly. If your microwave is very powerful, you could cause excess steam build-up from the water in egg alone, and would probably result in rubbery eggs as well.

This is very easy to use. It poaches two eggs in about 1 minute and the cleaning is a snap if you do it right away. The only problem is that it cooks the eggs a little unevenly. There is always one that is well done and one that could use a bit more cooking. That doesn't bother me too much, but if you like your eggs perfectly poached, stick to a more traditional stove-top method. But for super fast eggs without a pan to clean, this is ideal.
