  • Wow, Frank you’re such a cool guy, so handsome aaaand a great cook! Your wife is a lucky lady (and I’m sure you are lucky too to have her). Said will a lot of respect, a fan ������

  • I was making eggs Benedict for my first time, and it was my first time poaching and egg.
    I only had older eggs, but I followed all your steps and I didn’t even have anything left over to clean out of the water.
    Thank you so much for the help!

  • But using vinegar is just an easier way to achieve what you do with clingfilm, surely? The vinegar just means the whites will fold in on themselves and leave you with a ‘ball’.

  • Oh great there’s no such thing as food safe polymers. They’re tiny, you know molecules, polymers are the next biggest part. You’ll be digesting plastic and egg in the last one guaranteed

  • Put your egg in plastic. Then put that plastic into HOT water and let your egg cook in it while getting ALL the chemicals from it. Ta da! CANCER!

  • I like these 101 videos. I think its a nice touch that Frank says this is preferred method and why, but does not talk down on the other methods. However, I think it would have been nice to show the other methods as well, to give the viewer a chance to understand and replicate them. At least in this case it would have been quite easy to do.
    Again, I really like the videos, so please do not take this feedback too harshly. But just like Frank wants to help us elevate our cooking skills, I hope this feedback can elevate his future youtube videos 😉

  • Thanks Jamie sadly I’ve always done the rubbing of olive oil inside of a coffee cup Drop the egg in and microwave for about 35 seconds it’s not bad at all it just isn’t the method I would want thank you for letting me know it’s not boiling the eggs it’s very light simmer it came out beautifully and I so appreciate this video I made a beautiful breakfast for my friends that stayed over and they were like that is delicious I will say though i used leftover hollandaise sauce from a couple days before at a restaurant I went to and got some to go delicious cafe makes sauce so good LOL maybe you can post a video on how to make hollandaise sauce? Id love to make a fresh eggs Benedict

  • Perfect poached eggs every time (method one, even with older eggs) since finding this video a few weeks ago. Poached eggs on buttered toast, comfort food served at any time of day!

  • Such a beautiful and calm method for poaching!!! ������ I like to acidulate my water with lemon to match the flavor of my Hollandaise for Eggs Benedict. How about sous vide or Ramen eggs next, Chef?

  • Hey Jamie,

    Curious. Why would you need to first crack the egg into a bowl and then drop it into the water rather than crack it directly into the water?

  • Wow!! Thank you, these are my daughter’s favorite eggs and sparagus 3-5 minutes awesome, I like them but don’t cook them for fear of getting them soggy,please excuse the spelling ��

  • Nearly 11 and a half million views can’t be wrong and just just shy of 9,000 dislikes and over a quarter of a million likes says it all…

  • I really like poached eggs and have tried most of the techniques here. Probably the most important one is to buy fresh, but I liked the work-round of draining, which I had not seen before. What I liked best was the acknowledgement of potential problems and catering for all of them. I think that this was very well planned and presented! Thank you.

  • Ok i know now that, i should not try it..
    Omelette, scrambled egg and boiled egg and egg curry is my life…..
    No to poached egg ��

  • Apparently on all cooking shows and videos extremely runny egg yolk is perfect. It’s 60-90 seconds off perfect where the yolk is half gelatinous and a little little runny.

  • I couldn’t understand a word you said, friend. If you would please jerk your hands around a bit more.
    Seriously, it’s producing the opposite effect of what the misguided one promised you. It’s Distracting, and quickly becomes Irritating. It’s unnatural. We well understand the English language, friend (°_,°)
    And thanks for the info; I’m going to make some in a few days.

  • Hi guys! For those of you who may be a little intimidated with making poached eggs at home, I hope today’s tutorial will show you just how easy it is! You can store poached eggs for 4-5 days in the fridge (see more tips in the recipe post), so they’re also great for meal prep! What’s your favorite breakfast with poached eggs? xo Lisa

  • In response to Jamie’s query on adding vinegar to boiling water:
    One is to make the solution (the water) more acidic—and vinegar, which is quite an acidic entity, can do just that. So by adding vinegar, we get a double effect of heating, combined with increased acidity to help the egg white coagulate and form a solid white.
    You’re welcome.��

  • Thank you for This video finally learning to cook and did this now this morning for the first time. A success thank you, look forward to more videos to watch and progress with my cooking ��

  • Tried it today for the first time I didn’t have any vinegar but still came out a heck of alot better than the way I was doing them. But I should have taken the 1st one out then did the vortex for the 2nd one instead of putting it in after I still had the 1st one in.

  • Hello Chef. I started watching Epicurious during lockdown and you quickly became one of my favorite chefs. I’m thrilled to find that you have your own channel. I learned so much from you. During lockdown, I wanted to learn some more culinary skills. I’ve been playing around with making my own hot sauce. I don’t have a set recipe, but have been playing around with different flavors. Is it possible to do a hot sauce video?

  • I used a cereal bowl. Filled it with cold water. Cracked an egg inside. Put it in the microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds. It was perfect!!

  • Always used a little vinegar, never had the egg taste of it but use a light vinegar. That cling film trick is something I shall try next time I have to do more than one.

  • I love this method. Poaching eggs always seemed so daunting before. The first two were terrible but the rest turned out to be pretty good.

  • I thought 11 minutes was a bit much but this is the most in depth and informative poached egg video I’ve seen. More like this! I feel like I’m seriously learning to cook.

  • My super lazy and for singles way: Get a small cup, put 1 cracked egg + water but don’t overfill. Microwave for 40 or 50 secs WITH A COVER (40 for soft, 50 for somewhat starting to be hard), scoop with a slotted spoon. Add anything like soy sauce, chili sauce, black pepper with green scallions or onions. Works every time, and less fuss.

  • I love your videos. Watching them really gets me in the mood to try to cook new foods, and you make really intuitive videos that make it even easier to do so. Thank you for sharing your knowledge

  • I know this has nothing to do with this video… but you made it Chef Frank. Italia Squisita has judged your part in the Epicurious Spaghetti and Meatballs video.

  • Good morning Jamie Oliver,


  • Isn’t the reason people use other techniques, like the vortex, is so that they don’t have to add vinegar to the water and avoid the “vinegary” taste on the eggs?

  • With a slotted spoon(big enough to hold two eggs)dip fully shelled eggs into boiling water (which has a dessert spoon of vinegar added) for 20 seconds,quickly remove from water,crack egg on side of pan & gently enter eggs in rolling boil water for about 2 minutes.Presto!

  • “You can use any eggs that you want” Oh boy. Be careful what you say, Frank. You’ve got a sense of humor and that attracts fans with a sense of humor.

  • Oh Americans, you’re funny. Boiling temperature in Celsius is 100, no need to tell us, foreigners. That’s why we want you to follow the entire world and make that switch. 0 = freezing, 100 = boiling. Simples.
    Great video btw. I’ve learned something new today. Now gotta get that distilled vinegar.

  • Loved the vid. and the ever so simple instruction ❗❗����������
    Did you just eat all those beautifully perfect poached eggs at once? ����Lol!
    Thanks for sharing with all of us hungry folks in YouTube Land❗❗����

  • I admit I was a bit intimidated by eggs Benedict and so I never made it. Between this video and the hollandaise one, I’m on board with giving it a shot now! So good!

  • Hi Chef Frank, I love your channel. I’ve been practising cooking steaks and I think I’ve got the hang of it, but I’d really love to learn how to make proper sauces to go with them. Would you be able to show how to make a Béarnaise sauce? I’ve found loads of videos which all have different methods!

    Keep up the good work!

  • Thank you I did do the vinegar but you showed me that my pot was not deep enough so hence why mine were hit and miss and thanks for explaining about putting the eggs into the sieve Xx

  • 2:10 “boiling in Fahrenheit is 212. I’ll put the Celcius measure in the description”
    I laughed way too hard about that statement XD

  • Pop the egg in a shallow bowl or cup just covered with cold water. And microwave for 30-45 seconds. Perfect poached eggs! No mess. And Takes seconds.

  • I did exactly what you said with the non boiling water and they didn’t look anything like yours and they had barely any white around them ��
