4.0 out of 5 stars not perfect; better than poaching pans, 23 Jan 2010
This review is from: Eddingtons Double Egg Poacher (Kitchen & Home)
I've had one of these for about a year now. I got fed up with digging poached eggs out of various types of poaching pans, scraping 'non-stick' surfaces clean-- and sometimes clean off!-- thereby increasing the risk of getting Teflon (polytetrafluoroethylene) into our food. It's also nice having something much smaller to fit into my crowded cupboard!

The first few times I used this, I submerged it in the water and the eggs did, indeed, flow over the top to make bizarre free-form shapes. Now I keep the water level just below the rim of the poaching cups and they're fine. I also use a lid, which keeps the heat in so the top of the eggs are nicely cooked.

I find that the butter stays put a little better if I add a fleck to each cup just before the water boils. I drop the raw eggs in gently and just scoop them out with a spoon when done. If you want something that doesn't leave a trace of egg in the cup, maybe silicon is better, but I don't know because I tend to avoid anything plastic-like when it comes to cooking. All I know is that the eggs come out whole and in lovely oval shapes that fit well side-by-side on toast!

I've actually come back to buy another of these double-egg poachers (though since they're so simple a device I didn't expect them to cost more than a few quid!) so that I can do more than 2 eggs at a time. It's not an especially beautiful implement but the eggs come out well. I use a vegetable brush to quickly unclog the holes after poaching, then pop it in the dishwasher. No pieces to reassemble or try to keep together in cupboard-- another plus.
