Non stick egg poacher.

I like the yolks white (as would happen if you poached in water) . does that happen with the silicone poachers!If so, then I'll buy a couple.

have new one, how do you stop the eggs sticking to the non-stick
surface where you put the eggs!tia

I had one of those. terrible thing, will never use it again.I know of no way, except maybe greasing the little pans, but that defeats the purpose of 'poached' eggs, IMO.I learned to do it the old way, in water, lol. much easier and nicer.

Oh no - just bought it for our son to make 'poaching eggs' easier for them!

I love mine but you do need to put a little bit of butter or marg in them still and they just slide out.

Well, the thought was there. I bought one thinking it was going to be easier, lol. just led to frustration.My daughter likes it though. she just scrapes it out with a knife, scratching the surface in the process.I've put it away for her for when she goes flatting/ leaves home.

no dont scrape it with a knife, as above just a little bit of butter will help

I use wee silicone single "poachers" that float in the pan.easy

I use a little bit of butter and if they need a bit of help to come out, a plastic knife/spoon whatever I can find in the drawer.
