No.
I don't the secret. But I'd sure appreciate it if one of you did.
Or at least a reasonable facsimile.

Use only the freshest of eggs.
Use older eggs.
Use cold water and bring eggs to a boil.
Salt the water.
Don't salt the water.
Boil for x minutes.
Turn off stove and let sit.
Run under cold water.
Use ice.
Don't use ice.


ARGHHHHH!!!!!!!!

See what I mean?


Please help??

First you need to tell us what you want to do with the eggs.

Do you want to crack the end off add some salt and dip your toast in?

Do you want them hard so you can rip off the whole shell, add salt, then throw them down your throat.

Lol

Give us the answer please sweetie.

I've settled for a simple technique, and I get perfect boiled eggs with a wax-like yolk.

Put the eggs in approx 1 cm deep cold water, as soon the water boils I put the timer for 4 min. take out and enjoy.

The boiling temp of water varies, depending on its mineral content and altitude, so you might want to experiment with these 4 min a little, to get your perfect egg.

I use the Instant Pot and do a dozen large eggs at a time.

Put the eggs in the basket.
One cup of water and two tablespoons of white vinegar.
Manual high pressure for 10 minutes.
Quick release the pressure.
Move the eggs to an ice bath to stop cooking.

Turns out perfect every time.

I recently bought a small egg boiling machine.
Takes six eggs.Pierce the bottom of the eggs with the base of included measuring jug and place into machine with pierced hole upwards.The small jug has marks on it for desired hardness of egg.The harder the egg the more water,but the amount is tiny maybe say 50 to 100 ml.
Put lid on and turn on machine.A few minutes later perfect egg of whatever hardness you want.
A great little machine for boiled egg lovers and only costs around £10.
Saves a hell of a lot of messing about with pans and cooker rings.

Instant pot. Perfect every time, easily peels every time. I will never use the stove top again.

I add water and eggs to a pan and leave it on the woodburner in the evening.

Nice hard boiled eggs the next day for my sarnies.

Free cooking is the best.

Put fresh eggs out of the fridge and poke them on the flatter side. Then bring water to a boil, when water boils put eggs in, should be 2cm water over the eggs, 6 minutes gentle rolling boil. That's how I do it, I walk up to the pot 2-3 times and give it a swirl so the eggs turn. Then ice/cold water bath right after taking them out.

There are some differences between stoves, gas and induction you can take the 6 minutes but if you use ceran then it takes longer (feels like hours) to boil but meanwhile the eggs have more time to get to room temperature.

Result: Egg white is solid all around, yellow is still fluid.

For peeling, well I wanted to buy one of these egg top removers for a while now... but currently I just whack the knife into the side 2/3 height almost through and then flip the top over.

I heard about this method giving good results, tried it once and got almost boiled eggs.

Apparently this method makes it easier to have the egg white complete solid before the yolk begins to thicken. For me the above 6 min and turning works best though, differences between stoves though but that method gives me reliable soft boiled eggs where the yolk is still running.

What I found funny is that I noticed on induction stoves, the eggs will turn clockwise no matter how often you stop them from moving, they will self arrange in the pot into a pattern and start to rotate as a whole.

Must be the magnetic field. I miss my gas stove

edit on 10.2.2022 by ThatDamnDuckAgain because: rotate, not spin

We need to get one of those things from Amazon.

I make my eggs my mom's way. Gently place eggs in a lightly boiling pot of water. Cook for 6 to 15 minutes (uncovered) and then immediately cool.

Are the eggs room temperature when you add them to the boiling water?
