    Anybody have one of the old fashioned poached egg cookers? The ones where you put water underneath the egg holders, that got a pad of butter in the egg holders before you added the eggs.

    I liked those better than soft boiled eggs as no dealing with peeling the shells.

    That's basically like the little cups that can go in my electric one. And I had one real soft boiled last night, before i got called back to work. No where near as runny as that picture. MMMM.

    Just an FYI for future reference...…..

    1. Yes, the older the egg to be boiled, the easier it is to peel. That oughta tell ya something about store bought eggs...they're not as fresh as they say. BUT eggs are good for months before going bad. Even if left at room temperature, they can last quite awhile. The US is about the only place that refridgerates the eggs. In Europe & elsewhere, eggs are kept out.

    2. Chickens do better & are generally more healthy if allowed outside range....even if it's only an hour or two before roost time daily, or 2 or 3 days a week??

    3. Do not actually boil the eggs. Bring the water to a boil, add the eggs & turn down the heat to a soft simmer and add a hefty pinch of baking soda. After about 5 minutes, turn off the heat & let them cool naturally.

    I don't have one yet, but is on my to do list.

    When we've wanted poached eggs, I just get a pot of water boiling with a bit of vinegar, give it a twirl and crack an egg into the water.

    Sure we had them over the years. Its pretty easy to reduce the drama by cooking an egg in a coffee cup in in the microwave. https://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/the...-the-microwave

    I saw a video boiling eggs then please in a glass of ice water and shake it real good and shell will come off easy. I tried it and it worked.

    I do the same thing for poached eggs, plus I add a pinch of salt and a drip or two of olive oil to the water before dropping the egg.

    Hard boiled eggs are always hard to peel if the eggs used were very fresh. In that case, yes, it's best to let them sit in the refrigerator for a few weeks to age. OR (and I just recently discovered this) if you cook them in an Instant Pot, the eggs peel perfectly every time no matter how fresh they are. I understand the Instant Pot is not an option if there's no electricity available, but a pressure canner or other non-electric pressure cooker would work just as well.
