Gadget of the month: Cuisipro Stainless Steel Egg Poacher

Cuisipro Stainless Steel Egg Poacher

It's January. Time to put away the Quality Street and get back to healthy eating! A January favourite of ours is the good old poached egg. Done properly, poaching is a delicious and healthy alternative to frying and scrambling.

But do you struggle to make the perfect poached egg? If so, we've got the perfect solution - the stainless steel egg poacher from Cuisipro.

It's the best egg poacher we've ever tried here at The Cook Shop - and we've tried them all! We love it because it actually works.

The poacher has a cup design that clips to the side of your pan and allows the water to circulate around the egg for proper poaching. You spray a small amount of oil onto the stainless steel, then lower the poacher into already boiling water, making sure that the water covers the egg completely. Then simply cook according to your taste (personally, we like our yolks runny and our whites firm!).

The hook is adjustable for different pan heights.

The draining holes are designed to drain excess water - just tilt back to pour out the water and you're done.

This brilliant product has a 25 year warranty and is dishwasher safe (top shelf). Each pack contains two poachers.

We've put a video on our Hints & Tips page showing how it works.
