French Tin Egg Poacher
- Care: Hand wash
- Dimensions: 3¾" L x 2¾" W x 6¾" H
- Material: Tinned steel
- Traditional tinned steel with perforated bottom
- Poacher gently cradles your eggs and lifts them with ease
- Made in France
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.
