Poachpods - Perfect Eggs Every Time

Sunday, 7th February 2010

If you love poached eggs but can't seem to get them just right or if you simply hate the mess they can leave in the pan, then we've found the perfect gadget for you - and by all accounts it one that really works.

So what is this great gadget? Well, we've seen silicon moulds being used in baking for awhile and we've now come across small silicon pods in varous shapes and colours that are used for poaching eggs - namely Poachpods. These little pods are basically a boat for your egg! Place your egg in an oiled pod and the pod into your pan of boiling water for around 5 minutes, depending on how you like your egg. The pods can then be removed from the water and because they are flexible can easily be turned inside out to remove the egg. You've then got a perfectly shaped and cooked poached egg, plus no mess in the pan.

And, because they are are silicon, they can also be used in the oven for baking or as a jelly mould. So at £4.99 for a 2 pack we think they're worth a try.
