I tried this method today and I'm a convert.
It took me slightly longer than the video indicated, I let the water in my two cup Pyrex measuring cup come to a boil in the microwave, added two eggs, nuked them for a minute and then let them rest in the hot water for a minute or two while I made toast. Each egg remained separate and was perfectly poached.
I think this would work well if you have a houseful of people who drift into the kitchen at odd times wondering what's for breakfast.
I'm almost 60 and I'm finally learning to cook!
