Developed through a unique collaboration between Calphalon and Williams Sonoma, the Elite cookware collection sets a new standard for nonstick performance. Metal utensils won’t damage the release performance of the durable, triple-layer nonstick interior. Made in the USA and exclusively ours, Elite cookware is also PFOA-free and dishwasher safe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SeaBee from Worked just like the video! Just tried my new poacher for the first time today. In reading other reviews I sprayed the cups with non stick spray before using. I watched the video and then got started. The poaching cups worked great! The eggs turned out perfect and had the more natural look that I wanted for eggs Benedict. Clean up was easy. Very happy with this product. The only downside is it is a little pricey.Date published: 2019-04-15Rated 1 out of 5 by Davechitown from Avoid this new way to poach eggs! Does not cook like the video at all. Very messy and clean-up is not pretty! Avoid this new product! I still use my traditional Calphlon egg poacher as much easier and very fast clean-up. I cook eggs in the traditional egg poacher pan 3x a week so not new at this poaching business! This is one to just simply avoid. Thank goodness I could return in the 30 day return policy.Date published: 2019-02-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Kkkkaty from Best way to poach This just arrived and I immediately washed it and made some eggs according to direction in the box. Don’t use those which say use 1 1/2 cups water and cover to cook. The lid does not fit with the cups in and it will tip the cups over. Find the video for directions. I will use 6 cups water and not cover. I think this is a quality pan and recommend it. I am not a fan of silicon or little tin cups that you steam rather than poach It took a lot of searching to find this and yes the price is considerably more than those little cups, but look what you get!Date published: 2018-12-14Rated 5 out of 5 by dltesta223 from Best Poached egg pan I am buying a second. My family has several already. Great pan. I use it several times a week. People complain about egg leaking out and a small amount sometimes does but usually it is because the simmer is not right. Drain them on a paper towel before putting on your plate. Best eggs ever SO EASY to make.Date published: 2017-10-29Rated 5 out of 5 by cookingisfunforme from Follow the video Terrific poached eggs if you follow the video and not the instructions with the box. I like that I can make 1 to 4 at a time. I have not had any sticking issues. If you do, use oil on a paper towel to wipe cups. Do not use a spray oil with propellant on this type of surface, as over time buildup will cause items to stick. The included lid is only for using the pan without the poaching cups.Date published: 2017-01-03Rated 4 out of 5 by Saguaro from Great poacher - use with non-stick spray I purchased this product 4+ years ago. It has been tried and true with consistent, quality poached eggs. The individual cups are a great concept as I prefer harder yolks and my family vice versa. To prevent the eggs from sticking to the cups, I spray with a non-stick spray prior to use. (Spray the cups over the sink so that you don't get the oil from the spray all over the kitchen). Cleans nicely with warm dish soap (or in the dishwasher). The only complaint I have (hence the 4 stars) is that the coating on the bottom of the pan has cooked off. I have a gas range; this product must not be compatible. Nevertheless, the interior of the pan and the cups are still pristine.Date published: 2016-12-29Rated 3 out of 5 by Lucylou33 from Eggs Cook Well The Good: The pan is sturdy with a nice lid and can also be used for other purposes, so it is versatile. The Bad: The egg whites do leave a residue and stick slightly to the bottom of the poaching baskets, which require vigorous hand-washing as they will not get clean in the dishwasher without pre-scrubbing. Egg whites do leak from the holes, but not excessively. The underside of the pan is slippery and can easily slide on the grates of my gas stovetop. I have the four-cup pan. The pan could easily fit five of the poaching cups, so I am puzzled as to why five cups were not included. The pan is very expensive. The eggs do cook well and I have been happy with the results, but I suggest oiling the cups to help prevent sticking.Date published: 2016-10-18Rated 5 out of 5 by JaneMcK from The Directions are WRONG! My instincts told me that using 1 1/2 cups of water was not enough, but I did as the directions said. Of course it didn't work! I checked out You Tube and one of the two demos said to fill to the bottom of the metal rivets holding the handles in...that made sense! I highly recommend wiping the cups with a tiny bit of oil as it make clean up even easier! After filling with pan with water and allowing the eggs to cook about 3-31/2 minutes I achieved perfection! Poached Eggs and toast, poached eggs on hamburgers, steak... On most anything adds flair and is delicious! Now I love my egg poacher and don't heiste to use it regularly! And, the bonus pan is great on its own! I highly recommend this if you experience hit and miss when poaching the usual way.Date published: 2016-04-17
Can this also be used as a braiser? (Stovetop to oven?)Hi Uraqt2, Yes, you can remove the egg poaching cups and use the pan as a braiser as it is oven safe to 500 degrees F.Date published: 2019-03-17
