Poaching is one of the healthiest ways to prepare eggs, since no butter or oil is used. This egg poacher securely hooks onto the rim of pan for easy poaching; the hook is adjustable to the depth of the pot for different pot heights. Simply crack an egg into the poacher sitting in boiling water. The poacher has holes that allow water to circulate and gently poach the egg for a perfectly poached, perfectly shaped egg. A drain hole allows for easy draining of water when removing the egg from the pot -- just tilt back to pour out the water.
