  • Fresh eggs (as many as desired)


  1. Begin by selecting fresh eggs for boiling. Ensure that the eggs are not cracked or damaged.
  2. Place the eggs in a single layer in the bottom of a large pot. Make sure the eggs are not overcrowded.
  3. Fill the pot with enough cold water to cover the eggs by at least an inch.
  4. Place the pot on the stove over high heat and bring the water to a rolling boil.
  5. Once the water reaches a full boil, immediately remove the pot from the heat and cover it with a tight-fitting lid.
  6. Allow the eggs to sit in the hot water, covered, for precisely 10 minutes. Set a timer to ensure accuracy.
  7. After 10 minutes, carefully transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water using a slotted spoon or tongs. The ice water bath will stop the cooking process and help the eggs cool quickly.
  8. Let the eggs sit in the ice water for at least 5 minutes to ensure they are fully cooled.
  9. After the eggs have cooled, gently tap each egg on a hard surface to crack the shell all over.
  10. Peel the shells away from the eggs, starting at the wider end where the air pocket is located. The shells should come off easily, leaving behind perfectly peeled hard-boiled eggs.
  11. Rinse the peeled eggs under cold water to remove any remaining shell fragments.
  12. Once peeled, the hard-boiled eggs can be enjoyed immediately or stored in the refrigerator for later use.
