Great Product Find! Norpro Silicone Egg Poachers

While in NYC last weekend, I had the opportunity to shop at Chelsea Market.  In the Market is a kitchen supply store, Bowery Kitchen Supply, that sells just about any gadget or item a well stocked kitchen might need, and then some!  While browsing, a set of silicon egg poachers caught my eye.  I decided to give them a try.

Aren't they cute?  a chicken hatching out of a broken egg!

To be honest, I really thought these would end up being a novelty gadget that ended up in the back of my cabinet or gadget drawer...but I soon found out, these actually make the PERFECT poached egg....and you can make as many eggs as you have silicon cups for!  (I should have bought a couple of sets!)


They are super easy to use.  Just spray the inside surface with a bit of cooking spray and break an egg inside.


Heat up about 1 1/2 inches of water in a pan to boiling and place the egg cup inside.  Cover and reduce the heat to simmer, and allow to cook for 4 - 6 minutes.  Then you can lift the cups right out of the pan with your fingers, because the cup stays cool!  Just be careful of the steam from the water!


Run a butter knife around the edge and the egg slides right out...perfect shape, perfectly cooked!


Yum!  Here served over toast points of Nickels Light Mulitgrain bread ( 1 p+ per slice ) making for a 3 p+ dish.


They are silicon, so they are soft and bendy...easy to store!

I have been using my cups to make poached eggs all week.  Love them!  If you should happen to stumble across these wonderful gadgets and enjoy poached eggs....pick them up!

*Note:  Darn!!  It looks like the manufacturer no longer makes this product!  The product code is Norpro 993 if you can find them!   

Have you ever bought a kitchen gadget that you thought would be a dud, but turned out to be very useful, or vise verse?  I picked up a garlic chopped one time, that I thought was going to be super cool, but it turned out to be a total dud!

  2. How fun is that? I so want one! I thought I would never use my Pamphered chef mini chopper and now I use it almost on a daily basis!

  4. Hi Renee. Wow....what a great find. These look fantastic!!! (and darn cute!) I admit, I bought a cherry pitter in a garage sale, and know what? I LOVE it. I can now buy cherries in bulk when they're in season, pit and freeze them, which I would never have done before. and I use it for olives too. Have a great day!

  6. Aw, Rene, it looks we're spot on with our brains again. I just discovered these a few weeks ago at Cost Plus and had to have them. Not only am I poached egg obsessed, but I'm egg obsessed, too. My 'dud' kitchen gadget is one of those cannoli looking garlic peelers (someone bought it for me)--it works great, but I can peel and chop the garlic in less time than I can find the actual tool.
    Glad you had fun in NY.

  9. One click on Amazon and I'll have my set Tuesday! I fix poached eggs the old fashioned way in a pan of boiling water. So, I dirty a bowl, a pan, a slotted spoon. Poached egg goo isn't always easy to clean off the pan. These look awesome!
