Using it on Induction I can guarruntee that the handle does not get hot.
Nor does the handle on the glass lid. Be careful when removing lid that your arm or hand does not get in the path of the steam jet and that you remove the lid by angling it so that the steam in the pan escapes away from your face. Steam is hot. The poaching cups have small knobs for lifting cup. Be careful when washing and drying, not to bend these as they will interfere with the integrity of the poaching cup if they are bent when placed in the pan. (I have bent them accidentaly and straigtened them with out apparent weakening of them).
I have found that greasing the cups with buter or spread is better than oil. Lightly grease them and break egg in to them. Bring water to simmering point and with the cups in the retaining tray lower on to the pan and cover with lid. (Position lifting buttons away from steam vents but be careful when removing as they can get hot) Five minutes simmering for a large egg produced a really good poached egg properly cooked with a soft yoke. Excellent value for money
I have recently purchased this product, and find it absolutely superb.
To make perfect poached eggs every time, I put 2 pints of water in the pan, bring it to the boil, lightly grease egg cups with butter, (I have found from experience that butter is much more reliable than oil) weigh your eggs, this is important, and use four roughly the same weight, as a 65gm egg will cook well, but if you have a 70gm egg with you may find this underdone. I have a gas hob, so cook the eggs on the smallest ring at maximum for 5 1/2 minutes, then turn out onto toast or smoked haddock, for a perfect breakfast.
Every hob is different, so you may have to adjust power or cooking times on your appliance, but these guidelines give me perfecly poached eggs every time.

Also the egg cup handle screws fell out and had to be retrieved from my dishwashers filter.
All seems to fit together well. The tiny handles on each cup are fiddly, but far from a deal breaker. I wipe round the cup with a bit of paper towel with oil before pouring in the egg, but I'm not sure if you need to.
So take out however many cups you need. Pour in boiling water and turn on the heat. Wipe round the cup with oiled paper, few grinds of pepper, sprinkle of chives and parsley, pour in the egg and place into the poacher. Five and a half minutes later, perfect poached eggs.
Instructions are clear. The results were pleasing however we did over cook on our first attempt; and I ate half before I took a photo.
Other than the fact that the small handles on the individual cups were bent slightly upon arrival due to the way the product is packed by the manufacturer, causing a tiny scuff on the top of the holder, losing this product one star; this is a mighty fine product that can be used as a pan for boiling or sauté.
Tricky to get the eggs out at the end, we found a wooden / silicone spoon that's flexible at the spoon end to be good.
