Eggs - Perfectly Hard Boiled

Anyone else need help to execute perfect hard-cooked eggs?


  • To prevent the shell cracking while cooking, piercing the egg’s big end with a simple pushpin is just the thing – not too deep!
  • Ease the cold egg into a waiting pot of boiling water.
  • Adjust heat & simmer 15 minutes.
  • Bring a halt to further cooking by quickly cooling the eggs in cold water (this should also prevent the appearance of that greenish hue).
  • For easier peeling, start at the large end of the egg, and/or peel the shell off under cold running water.

P.S. – Don’t forget to store eggs bottoms up! (large end topmost).
