    Have you used your coddler yet?

    I ended up with two, one from eBay and one from a charity shop. I have coddled a few times but to be honest I find it a faff and have gone back to having boiled eggs.

    Plenty. It's cooked in a different way and to a different degree.


    I coddle mine in a cup. I just pour boiling water on cover and leave it.

    I have just checked them and they are not quite done.

    I never make soft boiled eggs as they are always over or under done.
    The beauty with the coddler is that you can check them and put them back. Plus mine have ham with them.

    Will post picks when they are done.

    I had a bit of trouble fitting in ham and the egg in to the small one. :hmm:

    Nope. Coddling is about the water temperature and the final state of the egg. You can coddle an egg in it's shell. Boiling water is never a part of the coddling process. To coddle you heat the egg in (in it's shell or a coddler) in water that is below really even simmering.

    I missed this thread first (and second) time round. We used to have coddled eggs sometimes when I was little, in coddlers like the ones pictured. I seem to remember we usually put a bit of cream and butter in with them, this being the point of doing them that way as opposed to just boiled or done in a poacher.

    Coddle is one of those words that gets stranger the more you look at it.

    I haven't had coddled eggs for years. My mum used to do them with a bit of bacon in .... yummm....

    I don't have the little bowl/thingies ..

    Guess atm will have to stick to poaching.
