I'm strictly a vortex girl but I'd like to know if the clingfilm really works. I worry that it will taste plasticky (yes, I know I am a princess). Report back if you give it a go.
Forget the plastic mate.
Put a cap or two of vinegar in the water.
Don't use salt at it thins the whites.
Use fresh eggs.
When you drop the egg into the water (carefully, and as close to the surface of the simmering
water as possible) make sure you put the egg where the water is simmering so as it will not drop to the bottom and stick to the pan.
Some use an egg ring and drop the egg into that to help keep the whites together. I don't.
Practice makes purrrfect!!!!
