At last found something that does the business. I hated poachettes which looked like disembowelled starfish. Also things that hung off the side of a pan. This is the nearest approximation to the single poacher I inherited from my mother but was aluminium. It turns out a wonderful poached egg in my experience and though not cheap, is not as ridiculously expensive as some others which cost more than a set of four poachers. (Why are single people consistently overcharged for individual portions, holidays etc.,?) Anyway I am very happy with it and reconciled to the cost because of the quality of the product.

Ideal when you wish to only poach one egg, with the glass lid you can watch the progress - main saucepan can be used for preparing sauces etc.

My wife does not eat eggs for breakfast, but I prefer one poached (rather than scrambled or fried). The only egg-poacher in our house was an unwieldy 4-egger. Heard about this one-egg version and promptly ordered it. Works ideally, just the job. (Be careful to put the water in before placing over heat, to maintain the machine's balance on the stove)

Quick efficient delivery.
The product itself is totally fit for purpose and for the price the quality is acceptable.
I would recommend this as its very useful and cheap.

This poacher was a replacement for my 91 year old mother, who's original one (many years old) had disappeared recently when she had her kitchen refitted. She was upset to have lost it, so I started looking for a new one. Not easy to come by (a single poacher), but this one has a very solid handle and is easy for her to use, much more sensible than the ones to hang over the edge of a saucepan, which seemed to be the only single poacher available at one time! The only thing I had to tell her was to go careful with the lid, which is glass, in case it breaks. She said it was the best present she'd had for a long time!

Ideal size for a single poached egg, which I can cook on the small ring on my cooker. The pan is also good for heating up small amounts of gravy for a meal for one. It is rare to find a product suitable for the needs of a single household being priced so reasonably.

I'm no chef. I'm not even a trainee cook really. But I seem to have a reputation for decent eggs of all descriptions.
The most troublesome for me were poached eggs (probably because I don't particularly like them myself - but my partner does).

So, especially for her (I'm a saint really, aren't I??!!), I bought this.
It's an OK pan, and it does poached eggs OK too - but not quick enough for me, because I've now found a way to do good poached eggs in the microwave (OMG) much quicker (and without pricking the egg, incidentally).
That doesn't make this pan totally redundant though. Because it has a glass lid, it can prepare a decent fried egg.

As I said, I'm no chef, but if you want to know how to poach an egg very quickly in the 'pinger' (we chefs?? can get excommunicated if we call it a microwave), then send me a question and I'll give you a lengthy answer - but cooking the egg is not lengthy.

Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful in some way when making the decision.

This is an excellent product. Good quality, easy to clean, and exactly what I wanted. If you are a person who only needs to poach one egg, this is the product for you!

Love it, was just what I wanted and is of a good size so that means you can get enough water in it and it dosen't boil dry. Arrived package well and no problems
