"Disappointing"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Have tried a few egg poachers over the years, with little success. Hoped this would be the answer, but unfortunately it wasn't! It doesn't seem possible to get both eggs evenly cooked together. Either one is overcooked, rubbery & has a hard yolk, or is very under-cooked with runny white. Also quite fiddly compared with some due to the water heating first etc...

Thanks for your feedback and I'm sorry to hear of the disappointment with the egg poacher, I'll be in touch shortly.

"Explosions"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

I adjusted the timings down and followed the instructions. Now I have a microwave full of exploded egg to clean. And the remains were really difficult to drain using the lid. Ironically, I bought this gadget to save on washing up.

"Plastic egg poacher"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Totally useless. I only poach one egg at a time but part fill both cups with water. Nearly every time there is an enormous explosion part way through. My microwave is only 700 watt. Also I like a hard yolk and this really is a risky business.

"Very disappointed"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

I am able to poach eggs 'properly' and almost perfectly in boiling water on the hob but bought this product in order to save on the washing-up. I appreciate that I may need to experiment with timings, but since what I had this morning was one over-cooked egg (which 'exploded') and one under-cooked egg, I'm not sure how adjusting the timings is ever going to result in two eggs of the same consistency. Does anyone have any tips for making sure both eggs come out the same? I am now regretting this purchase, it looks like it might just be a useless gimmick.

We're sorry to hear you've experienced this problem.Another customer has kindly sent feedback to share the method used of a successful attempt, we hope this helps. It did take a bit of experimentation as my microwave was stronger than the default one on the instructions (mine is 950W). I now fill the cups about a quarter to a third full of water and do 30 secs on full power with the lid on. Then I crack in the eggs, replace the lid, and cook for 40 secs. Perfect cooked whites and soft, runny yolks. It's a good idea to let the eggs stand for 30 secs as well. Sometimes it looks as if the eggs aren't cooked, but it's just the way the water sits around them, and they are in fact done. We'll be in touch soon to help.

"how do you get them out?"

star star star star star_border

We recently bought this egg poacher - it has cooked the eggs perfectly but we can't find a way to get them out without the white breaking off and watery toast. We've tried a variety of spoons and spatulas but can't do it easily at all. What are other people using?

support_agent A note from the team

Thanks for your feedback. Make sure the pods are oiled then once cooked use the lid to drain the excess water off the cooked eggs, they should then easily slide out onto your toast.
