Never overcook another poached egg with this individual egg-cooking container.

What You Need To Know

With tendrils of egg white swirling in the water, obscuring your view when you poach an egg, it’s all too easy to overcook the yolk or simply create a wet, runny mess that sticks to the pan. Fusionbrands’ Poachpod offers a solution: a flexible silicone cup that floats in the water like a lily pad, keeping the white contained and the yolk in plain sight. Eggs cracked into the pods set in 4 to 6 minutes once the pan was covered, and released easily (we oiled the pods, as recommended) to reveal perfectly cooked circles (albeit with the symmetry of a hockey puck or an Egg McMuffin). Dishwasher and microwave safe, the Poachpod makes poaching a breeze. The manufacturer suggests the pods can also be used for baking individual cakes or custards. We tried cake, and while it worked, the results looked like they came from an Easy-Bake Oven.
