    I have one of the pans - how did you do yours?

    P.S. Don't try ordering them out that way. They're *never* done right, if they even know what you're asking for.

    I have one of the pans and it is the easiest, simplest way to do these. Poached eggs are by far my favorite (and I hate eggs anyway).

    I have seen the pans for this, but I just took a med size pot and and added about 4 cups of water to it and 1/4 cup of vinger to it. Brough it up to almost a bowl and then dropped in each egg one at a time, no more then 4 at a time. I cracked each egg in to a small bowl and let it slidder into the pot. I took a chop stick to form the whites around the yoke. I had to do this to 1st two eggs I dropped in, the other two, they formed nicely, so I guess the water was not hot enough. ;Q Let it bathe *lol* for 3 to 4 mins and take them out and pat down to dry them up. If you like the yokes to run, I think less time is needed otherwise they harden up some.....

    The pans are SO much easier. Once you use one of them, you'll never go back to this.
