Perfect poached eggs

I know this isn't a recipe but was asked how to cook poached eggs so they turn out right every time and this is just my method.

I tried various ways over the years, making  whirlpool in the water, adding salt, all sorts of ways but then just thought surely all the bubbling water is why the whites go everywhere?

All I do is take a small frying pan and fill to almost the top with boiling water from the kettle and place over a very low heat so the water is barely moving.

Add a little splash of vinegar and gently place the (very fresh preferably free range) egg or eggs into the pan.

Set a timer for five minutes and then remove from the water carefully and that's it!!
