Poachpod: the way to a perfect poached egg?

How to cook a perfect poached egg

Poachpod - egg poaching aid

Cooking poached eggs is one of those things that doesn’t always go to plan. If you use the ‘throw the egg into boiling water’ method, sometimes it poaches in a nice organised fashion, and other times you end up with lots of stringy bits of egg white and an odd shaped poached egg.

Poached egg rings – a bit like a round pastry cutter – are widely available to pop the egg in and make them nicely round, but another option are these Poachpods.

Made from flexible silicone, the Poachpods are designed to hold the egg for you, whilst floating in boiling water and poaching.

The inside needs to be lightly oiled in order to help you release the egg in one piece at the end, but if reviews are to be believed, they poach eggs well and and do away with the odd shaped and stringy poached egg dilemma.

Poachpods are available to purchase from various retailers, with prices differing slightly. Amazon have two green Poachpods available for £4.60, Sainsbury’s sell Poach Pods for £5.00 and Lakeland have green or yellow Poachpods for £4.99.

Have you tried Poachpods and have they revolutionised your egg poaching method?
