Poachies by Wiltshire a Review

Last week I was sent some Poachies to try. Poachies you say? Well as the name suggests it makes poaching eggs quick and easy. Poachies are a compostable single use pouch that you crack your egg into, place into gently boiling water and then in 5 minutes time you can slide out a perfectly poached egg.

No butter, oil or vinegar needed making it really healthy.

When I shared this on Facebook on Sunday there were a mix of comments from I have tried them before and love them, too why not just cook it the old fashioned way in a saucepan of water.

 

What do I think of Poachies?

For myself personally in the past year I don’t recall making myself poached eggs – why? Because I have to hover around the stove making sure they are cooking, they haven’t fallen apart etc – I just can’t warrant poaching an egg in the morning.
Now after using the poachies and enjoying my first poached in a year, I can really see the benefit of them. After placing the pouch with the cracked egg into the gently boiling water, I set my timer and came back to a poached egg. No hovering over the stove, no losing parts of the egg – if was perfectly cooked and contained in the pouch.

I took photos of each step so you can see how easy it was to make a perfect poached egg.

1. Place a saucepan on the stove, bring to a rapid boil then reduce to a gentle boil.

4. Crack an egg into the Poachie (do one egg at a time)

5. Place the Poachie gently into the saucepan, they will stand up by themselves.

6. Set the timer to 5 minutes (if you like your eggs runny you can do a little less).

7. Once the timer goes over, remove the Poachie from the saucepan with a slotted spoon.

8. Drain the excess water.

9. The Poachie is a little hot, so carefully pull apart the opening and the poached egg will slide out easily.

10. Slide onto toast if you like. I prepared toast with avocado while the egg was poaching.

Enjoy. I like my eggs poached a little longer, but if you like them runny just cook for less time.
