Poached eggs: delicious to eat but intimidating to cook.until now. We created our Silicone Egg Poacher to help you quickly and easily create perfectly poached eggs - eggs worthy of sharing in real life and on social media. We looked at the traditional (and painstaking) water bath poaching method for inspiration, but designed the Poacher for modern cooks with a little more on their plate. The high-heat resistant silicone body cradles the eggs while the funnel shape guides them into the water to prevent the yolk from breaking. A carefully designed hole pattern optimizes water flow around eggs for even cooking. When they're ready, use the handy tab to safely remove the Poacher from the water. With helpful fill lines show just how much water to use and collapsible, compact storage, you're sure to make eggs that are as pretty as a picture. For best result please see images directions.

In that case, I won't try to convince you that you need this, but that it does a really good job.
I love the idea of "breakfast" but in our daily lives I just never find the time to sit down in the morning, and make what I traditionally think of as breakfast, or brunch (eggs, in particular poached, are a strong feature—perhaps because I eat mostly vegan otherwise). This item has helped to make breakfast easier because it makes poaching eggs a can't-go-wrong endeavor. I can do this straight from out of bed before I have woken up.
The procedure sounds long, but once you've done it once, you can do it eyes closed:
1) Fill in a pan with water up to the indicated level.
2) Bring to a boil, then put on simmer.
3) Add a splash of white vinegar into the opening (optional, but highly recommended).
4) Crack an egg in a bowl and pour it in the opening (some might be courageous enough to crack over the opening, but not me).
5) Wait a fixed amount of time (for my pasture-raised jumbo eggs, this is between 4 min. and 4:30 min—by the way, some reviews mention that size is an issue, maybe I do not notice this because I use jumbo eggs).
6) Pull the poacher out (can do with bare fingers because it is silicon).
7) Use a slotted spoon to fish the poached egg out, drain it, and place it on some paper towel (you can also delicate remove the strands of cooked yoke that may look messy).
The result is perfect, I find (or at least superior to what I could do on my own). Attached is a picture of my first poached eggs, used for an avocado toast (OK, so I'm a millennial, sue me! :-).
— If like me, you do not yet have a slotted spoon, you might want to get one, such as OXO Good Grips Nylon Slotted Spoon. (Nylon is a good choice if you may end up using this with non-stick cookware.)
— These fold onto themselves and can be stacked atop another, so as to take only a quarter of the space.
— If like me, you love avocado toasts, perhaps you can compromise, save on brunch, but allow yourself the opulent decadence of also owning this tool OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer, Green, or go on ahead and buy the combined pack (these OXO people sure are attentive to consumer demand, they were AFAIK, the first to market such a combo!).
PS: If you found this review useful, chances are there'll be a day I'll stumble on one of your reviews and find it useful too! Thank for in advance!
Pros- easy to use, great results.
Cons the sets are really big, and its hard to find the fill line,its very faint and small. They take a large pan and lots of water. I wish they were smaller!
Few pointers. First, try just one egg first to get your preferred time down. I set a timer at 2 minutes and 50 seconds for a runny yolk and large egg. Gives me a few extra moments to get it out of the water. They give you recommended times but it varies. Secondly, add a splash of vinegar to help keep the egg white together. Thirdly, make sure the water is a rolling boil and not a rapid boil. And lastly, spray the bottom of the pan with nonstick spray before adding water in. My eggs stuck to bottom a bit first time so that helps it. I’ll be using this on a regular basis and so happy to found this great tool.
Not sure why anyone gave this a poor review because if you use it correctly they should come out pretty perfect. And if you don’t like the tiny strings on the top edge just snip them off. No biggie.
We put four of these into a pot of simmering water (and white vinegar). We crack the eggs (one at a time) into a small bowl and gently slide the egg into an egg poacher. They slide down into the lower section and poach perfectly.
Before you use these you need to understand the mechanics of poached eggs; you need water, vinegar, patience. The water must be hot but not boiling (as little movement as possible, really), after you've achieved this (~170 degrees; I keep a laser thermometer in my kitchen) place the cups, dump the eggs; START A TIMER. Your perfectly poached eggs will be ready soon.
I'm buying 4 more of these as gifts to people that I know, like me, lack the patience and skill to make a poached egg the traditional way.
