Yes I know I should be ashamed of saying such a thing but I bought some poach pods a while ago and used them for the first time last night - they are now in the bin! My poached eggs always came out ok but never looked perfect so I thought the pods would help. Well... within 30 seconds one of them had sunk low enough into the water that water creeped into the pod (so what was the point?!) they took much longer to cook and then when they wre cooked I couldn't get them out of the blimming pods so I had to scoop the eggs out so the yolks split everywhere etc. As a result they are now in the bin and I will stick to properly cokoed but sometimes ugly poached eggs!
