"Looks nice, but not functionable"
I've used this product a couple times now and with iffy results. Value wise, at $8, I think it's a bit overpriced for what the item produces. Quality wise, it legs and stem bend out of shape very easily. Feature wise, there really aren't many. I've used both oil and butter to grease up the bottom before adding the egg, but I the egg still sticks to the bottom when cooking. The only reason an item like this is worth it is if it makes a better poached egg than me using the traditional method, and that isn't the case (by a long shot). However, I actually really do like the look of it, and have it hanging up in my kitchen. So there's that

Works well, with practice
My husband and I previously used a non-stick three-egg poacher which quickly shed its coating and had to be discarded. We replaced it with one of these (testing before getting more) and have been much happier!

My method is to boil water in a kettle (we drink a lot of tea, so the kettle's always on), oil the poacher with a bit of olive oil, set the poacher in the pan and then add water to just over the top edge of the poacher. When the pan is up to the edge of boiling, I crack the egg into the poacher.

Once the egg has set, I use a spoon or table knife to gently separate the egg from the walls of its little bathtub. The poacher isn't non-stick, but I get good results with it and I don't have to worry about flakes of coating in our food. Cleans up with a pot scrubber just fine.

Easiness!
Hilda L on Jun 14, 2016
I bought 2 of these to try and wanted a couple more. I spray Pam on top and bottom before adding egg. Lower slowly into simmering water with 2 t white vinegar and simmer for about 4 minutes. They work great for me!

Examining firsthand the French tin egg poacher (SKU 805622), I saw what appears to be metallic solder and some type of flux where the handle connects to the cup. These materials are not mentioned in the item's description. What materials are the solder and flux made of, and are they non-toxic?
Adam B on Dec 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The soldered portion is also made of tinned steel.
