I do the microwave method with absolute perfection and now clouds of white going out 'cause it's molded by the teacup.
Another way to get it molded is to have simmering water. Put canning jar rings in the water. Slip the egg into the ring.
I also have had good luck getting compact whites by having simmering water with a little vinegar. Swirl the water and slip the egg into the vortex.
