    Then season them improperly! Just lightly oil and keep on a low flame on the stove. I know, I know... just not done! But... it is better than loosing them to rust.

    No "proper" cast iron here, just (apart from the stainlesss) a couple of mild steel frying pans. The larger one is seldom used, and has once been lost to rust but resurrected by wire-brushing, sanding and :oops::oops:... improper seasoning.

    I'd like to try copper pots.

    the above one is a good start, but I'll contact you directly with my personal high altitude version with tweaks.

    I'm not at high altitude, but any chance I could get in on your recipe as well? I used to make the Joy of Cooking dutch baby recipe all the time. Would be fun to try an alternative.

    bravo!
    presentation slice on photo 2 looks good! will send you a PM on how to increase "puffiness".
    your pan may to be more upright or smaller in diameter based on the ingredient quantity posted.

    not all guys can get the big pancake rise the first time.
    :D:rolleyes:

    The internet recently taught me that I can poach eggs in the microwave... in one minute!

    Whoa... This is the quickest way (along with the toaster) of making a simple snack that I have ever come across.

    Some come out better than others. I suspect egg size and starting temperature matters. But frankly, if I try to poach eggs in a pan of water, most of them don't come out better than others. So I'm winning and its quicker!

    Its amazing that I spent so many decades with microwaves and never knew this :oops:

    I once tried to cook a whole egg in the microwave. The boom was satisfying. The cleanup not so much.

    Ahem, yes... I did know that's a no-no :cool:

    It's not a good idea to microwave anything that is sealed, especially when it has an air pocket in it.

    What's best for poaching in general? room-temperature egg? Fresher eggs have thicker whites, I think. I guess the eggs we are getting at the moment are not very fresh: quite a lot of white seems to just mix with the water. I might have got that fresher/older thicker/thinner thing the wrong way around.

    There is something about the pure simplicity of a poached egg, even more than boiled, which has always appealed to me.
