one of the things that bothers me about poached eggs is they're too small to make a sandwich in one piece. i made another paintpot pot to use as a poacher. perfect size!! two eggs gives a 4" diameter 3/8" thick perfectly round slab of egg to fit on a kaiser bun with bacon and cheese. ((i should probably eat something other than eggs for a few days ))
I'll have to try the poachers in an open pot, let them float around unobsructed, free wheelin, without pam, to see if the silicon will peel off on it's own.

From all the reviews I read, the eggs will stick somewhat without using oil of some sort. Instructions say to boil then turn down to simmer and place eggs in oiled pods and put lid on pot to steam. You just have to be difficult and take the hard road to see the worst results. Instructions also say you can bake with them on a sturdy pan or tray for support. Do you think they could handle the indirect heat if they were in a pan with no liquid and you put a burner to the bottom of it or should they be elevated off the metal surface that is in direct contact with the flame? Inquiry minds want to know. Zelph, try to bake some muffins in your pods and let us know how they turn out.
Also, it says not to use abrasive cleaners or pads if you cook egg onto the sides because you refused to use oil.
