    I agree with everything about this, except for the vinegar. Why would you want your perfect poached egg to have a faint vinegar taste. Just not needed. I’ve been making mine this way for years.

    I was nervous to try because I always thought it would be so difficult, but this was SO easy and they came out perfect!

    it took a couple of tries for me to get it right but it didn’t look like the picture or any poached egg i’d ever eaten in the slightest

    Turned out well. Made 3 at one time by using larger pan and putting eggs in boiling water one at a time by use of separate small cups. Eggs and stayed separate and came out perfect.

    Turned out perfectly! I was so surprised when I opened the lid and saw how beautiful it looked. I think next time I might leave it in about 30 seconds longer because I like a little bit thicker runny yoke and thicker whites. Would definitely make again. Such a simple operation!

    Eggs turned out perfect, egg white was set and yolks were still soft and runny, so quick and easy 👍🏻

    Quite good, but I prefer the eggs a little less hard.

    Delicious- used basil substituted for paprika & garlic salt for salt

    4 minutes was too long and the yolk was not runny. i found putting it in a bowp resulted in a lot of white separating away from the yolk. overall a great recipe will definitely make again lowering the time.

    IT: fantastico, con i 4 minuti rimane fuori della consistenza di una mozzarella mentre all’interno viene cremoso (non liquido) lo consiglio moltissimo! Ma attenzione a scolare bene dall’acqua altrimenti perde di sapore

    It was my first time making poached eggs and I didn't have any vinegar at hand, so I used lemon instead. What happened was the poached egg turned out to have a beautiful molten core but there wasn't much egg white left... 😂 I'm not sure what happened there but it tasted delicious!

    turned out really well. I've never tried poached eggs usually scramble or boil. Thank you for showing me a new way to eat eggs. I will be looking for more healthy breakfast eats.

    Probably due to heat variances my egg was over cooked at 4 minutes. I used a stainless steel pot on high gas heat at a full boil. I would say if you like your yolk extra runny to cut it back to 3 minutes, but that's just preference.
