The Hunt for the Elusive Flameware Egg Poacher
I've managed to come across quite a bit of pyrex flameware and I love it. I use my teapot every day to fill my chemex and use my double boiler any time I melt chocolate or make hollandaise sauce (healthy, huh?) But what I've been searching for and have never even heard a peep about is the clear glass egg poacher insert that fits into the double boiler.
It's listed in Barbara Mauzy's Unauthorized Collector's Guide and I've seen it mentioned on a few antique dealers' websites, but have never found one for sale in person or online.
Has anyone ever seen one? Anyone own one? I'm so curious now. Do they really exist? I'm assuming there weren't many made and perhaps a lot of them didn't survive?
The mystery of it all! Big Foot, Nessie, the Bermuda Triangle, and now, the Pyrex Flameware Egg Poacher...
