I bought what was described to be a microwavable egg poacher but when I unpacked it and read the instructions it said that the best use was in a pan of simmering water. I thought I'd go ahead as I wanted to use it when we go caravanning. I've tried all sorts of time lengths and all sorts of power settings, but the eggs are either too hard or cooked only in part. I am very disappointed as it seemed like such a good item on the site. I will stick to my poaching pods in future which are simple to use and always give good results although do require a pan of simmering water also.
