I think you could cut the top and bottom off tuna cans (and remove the tuna) and use those to contain the eggs during poaching.

Thanks a ton for your tips!

I especially feel better after finding out that they make "poach pods" - that tells me there is a demand for help in this particular egg-making area.

good idea thats what my aunt did many years ago. but now that they make cans with rounded bottoms so they stack better you can't remove the bottoms that easily any more.

I watched Tyler Florence cook them on one of his show and they came out perfect.

He added some vingear about 1-2 tbl. to the boiling water and then turned it down to a simmer. Just before he added the egg he took a wooden spoon handle and swirled in the water to make like whirlpool -- a fast one- a gentle one and then dropped it in the middle of it and it all stayed together and looked great. He also used a fairly deep pot not a shallow pan.

Hi all, just an update.

So after many ruined eggs. I realized that until I have a flatter cooking surface (the large burners are off, the small ones aren't but then the eggs don't cook), I need to cheat a little.

So I bought this item at a cooking store. It was $4 and in the baking section. I figure I can also cut biscuits with it, little cakes and cookies. I looked at the cooking pods but they want 2 for $12 and they weren't in my color. :)

So, my poaching has become loads better, I just need to make sure the eggs set up well enough before I take the circle out.

good job!! i used to use tuna cans but lost them in a move and now that they make all the cans with one end rounded i can't take both ends off. so those are tall biscuit/cookie cutters?

I think it might be for baking fancy cakes. I don't know, there was no description, just a price tag.
