Product Review: Poachie and Roundy

The Ranting Chef does not get paid or receive any revenue from manufactures or retailers of products reviewed. I occasionally receive products that I am asked to use and see what I think. I take a look, try them out and tell you all about them.

A package for The Ranting Chef? [insert happy dance here]

I found two products from Joieshop staring back at me. The first was Poachie, a silicone egg poacher. I was excited to find this because while I know how to poach an egg (swirl the water) it is always nerve-racking and too often I end up with quite a bit of egg white swirls and too little poached egg.

Crack your egg into Poachie. I’m not sure he’s too happy based on his eggspression.

Gently place Poachie into boiling water by using a spatula.

Cover and let the egg poach.

Remove from the water. I had to tip and drain out a little accumulated water as the condensation from the lid caused a little water to drip on top.

It comes out in one piece…if you take heed and oil/grease the inside of Poachie before putting the egg in. My first attempt I didn’t heed the suggestion and it did not come out as clean.

A perfect yolk for a poached egg.

Poachie, you survived! Now stop staring at me.

His counterpart, Roundy, a silicone egg ring, was also in the package.

Knowing I would want to make a breakfast sandwich, I started with a little sausage.

In went Roundy and I cracked the egg inside. I popped the yolk as I prefer the yolk a little more dispersed. Leave Roundy on for a couple of minutes.

Grab Roundy by the head and he pulls right out, leaving the egg. This allows you to flip as you desire.

A perfect round egg for my breakfast sandwich.

Again, he’s staring at me!

My Take: Poachie and Roundy are great little tools to help you solve two very common egg cooking issues. Poachie helps make an easy poached egg without the stress and Roundy keeps my egg in the shape I need for my breakfast sandwich. Check out these and other fanciful but useful products at Joieshop. They have some really fun and funny items. Take a look and pick up some of their great products.

    Eggcellent review!

    I had an egg poacher in my early 20s and loved it! Since then I’ve perfected poached eggs (I poached and posted Saturday!). Swirling water yes, it kinda works. Vinegar works perfectly. Lemon vinegar is my favorite because it leaves a slight lemon flavor, perfect for eggs benedict. Great products for people who are still on their egg journey!

    Thanks for the review…I’ve always wondered about how well these items work. Though I’m sure about having that little chicken stare at me while I’m cooking.

    OYE! put an egg on a English muffin and put in microwave for a minute….actually works well!

    “Roundie” is good, but what’s better for making eggs like that? About a 1/4″ slice of a red pepper. Cook your egg in that and put them both on your sandwich 🙂

    Great reviews 🙂
