I can't wait until they make "organic, free-range, local, artisan, gluten free and zero trans fat" plastic wrap.

Now, THAT would be something!!

I haven't had a microwave oven since the year 1689... but, I think you already knew that!

Those look like a good idea MsM. Silicone makes sense. Years ago I had the old fashioned poaching pan with cups that the chief likes but that thing ended up in my donation pile.
If I want an egg cooked in butter I'll fry the little darlin's .

Same here.

It worked fine, I just couldn't justify the storage space for a single function pan. I switched to poaching in a small pan of barely simmering water and a splash of vinegar.

I also had a small one with a single egg insert, it too went into the missionary barrel.

Ah but the one with the inserts was what introduced me to poached eggs at Grandpa's house, so it has sentimental value. Also, you can make steamed, individual puddings in those little inserts, or custards, or brule', or little cups of cheesey goodness to pour over the poached eggs. It is not a one-purpose pan in my house.

You're a treasure Chief, but that silly old multi part design for poaching eggs belongs in a museum of bad cooking inventions.

egg, recipe

Less messy way to poach an egg (less cleanup) I like a poached egg on my corned beef hash. My usual method is to boil some water in a pot, add a splash of vinegar, then break the egg into the water, then use a slotted spoon to retrieve the egg, then afterwards, wash out the pot and slotted spoon of messy egg white residue. I came upon this method which requires less cleanup. I haven't tried it yet, but plan to. :chef: [youtube]9jUZax1lCok[/youtube] 3 stars 1 reviews
