Nice little helper
August 20, 2015
I picked these up because I really enjoy poached eggs but have yet to master the technique. These keep the egg nicely contained. Yes, the fine mesh bags do leave a slight mesh imprint on the egg, but that's not a big deal. Plus, you can keep it in the bag until you are ready to serve.
Pros: Easy to Use, Design

Video makes it clear
May 27, 2015
There's a great video on the popular video site that shows how this works. I'm ordering it. I don't think the video is wrong. It shows egg oozing out a little, but that's the same with cooking it in water, and it also seems to release ok. Giving it a 4 because even so doesn't look perfect and WS won't let me submit this without putting stars on it. I poach regularly, but this seems easier than the classic technique.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean

Don't waste your money
April 6, 2015
This product is a TOTAL failure!!! Egg gets stuck inside and it over cooks the whites and you don't let eggs cool before serving as the directions said to. Egg leaks out of pouch the minute it is dropped into the boiling water!! Easter morning breakfast failure!! Went to scrabbled eggs instead - very disappointed.

Helpful tips
I've never used this product so I can't help with that, but here are some poached egg tips:
1. Boiling water is too hot for poached eggs. The water should be simmering. The ideal water temperature for poaching eggs is 180-190 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Add a tiny bit of acid (lemon juice or vinegar) to the water. The acid will help the egg hold it's shape.
3. Swirl the water prior to adding in the egg. This will help develop the shape of the egg.
4. Try to stay away from B grade eggs if you can help it. AA and A grade eggs are much better for poaching, frying, and other egg preparations where the integrity of the egg is vital.
Hope this helps!
