Free Tips & Easy "How to" Instructions
There are two ways to boil eggs.
The result can be one of the two:
The eggs are cooked at maximum temperature, and the pot shouldn't be covered.
Boiling time: 3-4 minutes
Boiled at 3 minutes the egg will be very soft, almost runny.
Boiled at 4 minutes, the egg will be soft.
Boiling time: 6 minutes
Eggs shouldn't be boiled for longer than 7 minutes. They get increasingly dry the longer they cook.
Take the entire pot with the water and eggs, place them in the kitchen sink and run cold tap water on top of it. You can carefully drain a bit of the hot water beforehand.
Cool the eggs this way for about 1 minute, then turn the water off, and leave them in the pot with cold water for about 2 more minutes.
Carefully take out the eggs, one at a time, and dry them off with a kitchen towel. Tap each egg, top and bottom, on a hard surface (kitchen counter) and peel it.
With a little practise you will be able to peel an egg in about 10-15 seconds this way, without any tricks or additional ingredients.
