dont even use it

Comments about Nordic Ware Microwave 2 Cavity Egg Poacher:

it often pops open half way thru cooking and spatters egg everywhere. I got it for making egg sandwiches but find I do just as well with a custard cup and a paper towel. It does do some better if you turn it over half way. This flips the egg and at least its not cooked rock hard. The eggs are never poached they are either under done or over done.

Products allows you to poach eggs in the microwave.

Comments about Nordic Ware Microwave 2 Cavity Egg Poacher:

The product does a good job of poaching eggs quickly. However, the instructions say to cook on high power. That over cooks the eggs. At least in my microwave it did. I found that cooking them on power 5 worked a whole lot better. I also started them on less time than indicated. I cooked them for 30 seconds. If more time was needed, I then added another 15 seconds. It most likely depends on how powerful your microwave is.

Fiddle a bit and fast eggs will be yours!

Comments about Nordic Ware Microwave 2 Cavity Egg Poacher:

 

Comes the Sunday morning when *Saturday's* dishes still lay scattered in the kitchen.  Eeeek!  What to do for breakfast?  Husband Pal whips out our plastic **Nordic Ware Microwave 2 Cavity Egg Poacher**, selects some extra-large eggs from *Trader Joe's* and gets down to business.

**Nordic Ware** directions advise the cook to put 1/2 teaspoon water in the bottom halves of the hinged cooker and pierce the egg yolks once the eggs are in the **Poacher**.  Pal has devised his own methods which may or may not work for others.  He rinses the **Poacher** in cold water, slips the eggs in the dampened cavities(no piercing), closes the container, plunks it in the oven (it has its own little built-in stand), and sets the timer on our 1000 watt microwave.  Pal likes his poached eggs kinda runny, so it's 60 seconds for him. I like my eggs to have a little more character, so 80 seconds works well for me.

Learning the dos and don'ts of this process can be tricky at first.  The size of the eggs, the wattage of the microwave, and the preferences of your usually-fussy egg eaters may test the frustration level and ingenuity of the cook to his or her own level of personal high heat.

In a pinch, though, there's nothing faster, and no other super-healthy way (save hard-boiled) to cook your eggs.  While Pal does the honors at the microwave, frozen waffles heated in our pizza oven fill in the rest of the menu.  A cup of coffee, waffles with real maple syrup, decent poached eggs, and thou.  "Good enough for government work" as the saying goes.

And Saturday's dirty dishes can wait just a little while longer.
