Poaching eggs can really get a home cook down. There are so many factors to consider -- vinegar or no vinegar? Deep pot or shallow pan? And sometimes, as careful as you are, they just don't turn out. There has been a lot of talk on the Hotline about this somewhat intimidating task, and as this thread proves, there are plenty of ways to successfully poach an egg. Today we're sharing our favorite poaching technique, which Amanda lovingly calls "The Control-Freak Method."

This week's video was shot by our friend Alex Lisowski and edited by Dimon Hunter.
