Full Answer

The water added to the egg provides steam, which ensures the top of each egg cooks evenly. Butter can be added before placing the eggs into the receptacles to ensure easy removal. A dash of vinegar added to the water may help the egg's membrane remain strong, preventing the final result from being more like scrambled eggs than poached eggs.

    How does induction cooktop cookware work?

    A:

    Induction cooktops use magnetic fields to induce electric currents in iron or stainless steel pans. Since these metals are poor conductors of electricity, much of the energy is dispersed, causing the pan to heat up. Induction cooktops heat much faster than gas or electric, since the heat comes from the pan itself rather than a burner heating the pan and then transferring that heat to the food.
