Chef Remi

Following on from our theme of showing you how to get the basics right every single time (we’ve already covered how to make the perfect omelet, how to make the perfect fried egg, and how to make a perfectly boiled egg, today we’re going to look at what is possibly the most difficult way to prepare eggs; poaching.

Even the best of cooks can get poached eggs wrong from time to time. Egg white that’s disintegrated in the water, a rubbery yolk etc can create a disappointing poached egg experience!

Today we’ll show you how to poach an egg perfectly, each and every time.

How To Make A Perfectly Poached Egg:

  • Start with eggs that are no more than 4 days old. This is the real secret to eggs that don’t break up or disintegrate in hot water.

  • Add boiling water from a kettle into a saucepan. You want to fill the saucepan to about 1 inch in depth.

  • Gently heat the water. The secret to a great poached egg is not boiling the water. The water has already boiled in the kettle. All you want to do is keep it barely simmering in the saucepan, just a trace of minute bubbles.

  • Break your egg into the water and simmer for EXACTLY 1 minute (do not cover saucepan). Remember, do not allow the water to go beyond a bare simmer. Use a kitchen / egg timer as guessing the time is, yet again, asking for disaster!

  • Remove the saucepan from heat, and let your egg sit in the hot water. Set your egg timer for 10 minutes. This is the length of time it takes to get the white perfectly set whilst the yolk becomes creamy and soft.

  • Lift your poached egg out with a slotted spatula, and rest the spatula on kitchen paper (to allow the excess water to be absorbed).

  • Eat straight away. Poached eggs are awful when cold!

HQR said: Finally - I've Found A Paring Knife That Feels Right And Works As It Should!

For the last eight years or so, I have been trying to find a good replacement paring knife for an antique one that accidentally got thrown away with potato peelings. I've tried a ton of different ones, from dollar store brands all the way to expensive name brand knives. None has worked well for me - either because they don't cut as they're supposed to, or because they just don't feel right in my hand. But this one is perfect!!! It fits in my hand naturally and slips right through foods as I'm peeling and slicing them. It looks beautiful and I love the fact that it has a lifetime warranty in case anything does go wrong. I highly recommend it!

Jessica H said: Best spoon set

Having a dishwasher safe spoon set gives me the freedom to use it anyway I choose and not worry about clean up. I used the vented one for getting my vegetables and it made serving for picky eaters who don't want their food touching,, especially the juice for another food. Effortlessly I drained the vegetables. Thanks for making my life easier and the spoon rest helped to make cooking sanitary. Any cook knows cooking can get messy and you seem to run out of counter space quickly but having the clean surface to quickly put the spoon down.

Sara Hnasko said: Heavy

I haven't had an opportunity to use these yet but I am looking forward to trying them out soon. I can say that they are somewhat heavy and not thin and they are made very well. Just from holding them in my hands and looking at them, I can honestly say that this product is better made then the others
