  1. Will do. I'll give that a try. I'm also going to try increasing the temperature to a simmer and see if that keeps the egg off the bottom of the pan. It's too bad it stuck...the whites were perfect. The egg was probably older as there were lots of 'wispy' parts of the white that came off. The denser part of the white was cooked completely and still tender. The yolk was completely runny! Just the way I like it!!
  2. Exactly! Poaching on the non-precision cookers of the past...I RARELY had a problem with sticking. I can't remember the last time it happened. I'm thinking with the temperature of the water at 183F, it's not boiling, allowing the eggs to drop and sit on the bottom of the pan. The only option would be to increase to a simmer and decrease time. I'll give that a try in the morning.
  3. LOL...Obviously before. I was thinking you might have been talking about frying eggs as the idea of non-stick spray AND water had never REMOTELY crossed my mind. Didn't mean to come of dense!
  4. Before putting the water in? Off the top of my head I'd think it would come up when the water started heating up...but I'll give it a go! Thanks.
  5. I cooked some poached eggs this morning. The consistency was PERFECT. 183 degrees F for 4 1/2 minutes. The only problem was they stuck to the bottom of the pan. Any suggestions?
  6. Just received my replacement (Breville originally shipped me a European model in the USA) Control °Freak!!!!! Woohoo! Excited to start!
  7. Thanks for all the input. Any suggestions on finding a D7 12”?
  8. I’m searching for an All-Clad D7 12” frying pan. I’ve searched online. Called local kitchen stores. Does anyone have any suggestions on finding one of these bad boys? Thanks in advance.
  9. Received my CF today. I was super excited. Unpacked it. Was looking at it lovingly. Then noticed something odd. The plug was NOT USA standard. I flipped the CF over. 220/240 V. They sent me a European version! Crap. I called them up. She was nice. I was nice. She sent me a shipping label and said as soon as they receive mine and process it they'll ship out a correct version. LOL I guess I won't be playing with my CF quite as soon as I thought I would.
  10. I'm interested in the D7 line, solely as it relates to the Control Freak. I have some Caphalon, Cuisinart, All-Clad Copper Core, a Staub ceramic coated dutch oven, and a cast iron skillet. When D7 first came out, I was salivating over it. Sort of like the Control °Freak. I was waiting to see if they came out with a larger selection. They started to...but then they discontinued it! What the heck!! Do you like your D7? Overpriced? I've read that D5 is just as good and not as heavy? I can still get a set on Amazon for $799. Should I just stick with my hodge podge collection to use with the Control Freak? If D7 had ever expanded into a full set...I'd be all over it!
  11. Update...my CF arrives Friday! Outstanding!
  12. Hi and thanks for adding me. I’m an aspiring home foodie and cook. This is a fantastic site.
  13. I’ve been following and lusting after the CF since they were first announced and not even available. The sticker shock always held me back. I’m embarrassed to admit that I found this thread, read it through in one sitting, and immediately ordered my CF. Then I started thinking how nice 2 would be! I restrained myself. That was yesterday. Waiting to get notification of shipping. Super excited.
