I’m not one to review, but this one deserves it Usually words like “greatest”, “best”, “and perfect”, end up being anything but, but these eggs actually do turn out perfect I’ve tried to boil eggs for years and years with mediocre results With this recipe and cooking instructions you can’t mess it up Once you get half the egg peeled, the other half of the shell comes off as one piece Not once have I had a shell pull off any of the egg white I will never need to look for another hack or recipe to cook the perfect hard boiled egg This is it

Happy with how they turned out cooking-wise, mixed bag for me as far as how well they peeled. Ive had 4 so far and only one peeled easily, I was surprised because I read vinegar was the key to that. Next time I'll try with running water and slightly less fresh eggs

Best hard boiled eggs ever, hands down. Every egg peeled perfectly and was impeccably cooked. I didn't do the ice bath, rather poured the hot water out and then left cold tap running in the pot for about 5 mins. Then let them sit in the fridge for about 30 mins.

It worked so well that i don't have to run the faucet to peel the egg! I use this recipe every time I hard boil eggs.

Incredibly easy to peel. Tastes great as well. A tip I learned for easy peeling is to place an egg in a small glass and fill it with just enough water to barely cover the egg. Then shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. The egg will peel with very little effort

Hey Ken- I made them the way you said and I took some advise from one of the reviews- cracked them after they were done cooking- put in ice water and they turned out awesome!! This works great w/ fresh eggs so you don't have to waist time waiting for them to get old! Thanks Ken!
