There are a few other tricks. For example, make sure your eggs are fresh and at room temperature. Place each egg in a separate bowl before putting them in the water which ensures they will  not break. Some people put vinegar in the water which makes the eggs a little more in uniform. You can also add a bit of oil or butter to the water. These methods help, but I often produce minimal benefits.

I always season the eggs with the sprinkle of salt and pepper, but you can use the spices of your choice. Give our poached eggs a try and let us know what you think.
