I haven’t posted a Coolest Thing Ever post in a while because, well frankly, I haven’t really come across anything that has really wowed me. Until I found these poach pods. It’s no secret that I love eggs. I don’t have a preferred preparation. I’ll eat eggs any style. However, I don’t poach eggs very often because I totally suck at it. They always look like a hot mess when (if) I manage to get them out of the water. Sure, they still taste good, but as a food stylist, I need everything to look pretty, and there’s been more than one occasion where a poached egg has ruined my day.
Presenting the Poach Pod from Fusion Brands, a.k.a my new best friend. No more ugly, messy, stringy poached eggs for this gal! Just perfectly round, easy to maneuver nuggets of white and yolk. All you do is lightly oil the inside, float them in a pan of simmering water, crack the eggs, then turn them out when they’re finished. Just when you think it couldn’t get any better, it also goes in the dishwasher. It was love at first poaching.
According to the label, you can make flan, frittatas, cakes or other baked goods in these babies too! What?!?! Bake a mini cake?!? You know I’m going to be trying this soon. Apparently, it also functions as a food mold if you want to present something in a perfect dome shape. Amazing. I love a multi function kitchen tool.
Head over to Fusion Brands and check out all their cool products. I think the “Love Handle” sounds pretty awesome too. I got my poach pods at Great News! In San Diego, but they’re available online at Amazon as well. And, no, Fusion did not pay me for this post. I really love these things enough to tell the internet about it!
