Poach Pods


Poached eggs are one of my favourite breakfast ingredients. The only drawback is that the stray egg white take ages to scrape off the pan sides. Enter Poach Pods, silicone moulds that you break an egg into (don't bother about oiling 'em first, waste of time!), lower into a pan of simmering water, put the lid on and leave for five minutes, before scooping it out with a large metal spoon.

Barring a 'capsize' incident, there will be no mess in the pan, and if you leave the Poach Pod to dry, the egg white separates from the silicone of its own accord.

They look great and was going to buy a set, but was shocked that Lakeland site charges £4.25 postage for these items that are £4.99.
