That does not look good!!! It’s all flat and the yolk is over cooked.

Poached eggs is not a dark art, no need to muck about IMO.

Boil a pan of water. Turn the heat right down so bubbling doesn’t break up the eggs. and tip in fresh eggs. I usually crack into a little bowl first for ease. Put a lid on the pan.

Don’t bother doing a vortex. Don’t bother with vinegar.

After 2 mins exactly use a slotted spoon to remove and you will have perfect poached eggs with runny yolks.
