I did have. Waste of time. The egg boiler, you have to pierce the egg. A saucepan would be just as quick. For poached eggs you could get a poaching pod. That also just goes into a saucepan. The pods can also be used in the oven to do baked eggs.

Thanks. I can boil, fry and scramble eggs no problem but poaching them is my downfall.
Did buy and did get rid.
These are the ones I have.

Thanks. I had heard of them but not sure as to how effective they are. I have seen different brands on Amazon, but they all seem much of muchness. For the price it's worth a gamble.
They do work and like I said can be used in the oven.
No but have considered buying one x
Honestly, Smow, don't bother. It'll end up in a cupboard.

If you poach in a saucepan use a bit of vinegar.
I make great poached eggs in a saucepan of salted water. The eggs must be very fresh. If the eggs are not in the water they are not poached.
Poachers use steam which is water.
I've never had a baked egg, how long do they take in an oven.
Then they are steamed or coddled, not poached

Don't sound very appetising to me. I like my yolks runny. Anyway, surely the plastic holders will melt in the oven?
i have a poaching pan, and it's the only reliable way (for me) to make poached eggs
for clarity its not electric tho
I use those tin foil cases from individual cakes and tarts (usually Mr Kipling Bakewell's) to bake eggs in the oven. Each tin foil case is perfect for one egg
bednobs, you are not cooking poached eggs, despite the name of the pan :)
The ‘plastic’ poachers are actually made of silicone and totally oven safe.
