    Poke a hole in the big end with a pin before boiling. Learned this from a vintage Sunbeam egg cooker.
    Use older eggs.
    Put them in cold water to cool, and change the water a couple times until the eggs actually cool.
    Peel them under running water.
    Works over 95% of the time for me. I bet it will be the same for you.

    Report: I followed the link Ken provided above, the "cooksillustrated" method, of boiling water first then lowering the room temp eggs into the water. I cooked a dozen yesterday, and just peeled twp of them for lunch. Success! They peeled very easy. These were about 10 day old fresh eggs from our hens that were kept in the frig until yesterday to let them warm up. I hope the rest do the same.

    Just break the shell at the wide end and blow on them. It will separate the shell from the egg.
    Since this is a machining forum, install a compressed air line in the kitchen to do just this

    Yep, eggs are not a gauaranteed increase in cholesterol. Besides, the blood test is not a definitive test for plaque in the blood vessels, only a cheap test that insurance companies pay for.

    Not any more. No more low salt diets for high blood pressure and no more low cholesterol diets. Just eat the recommended USDA daily amount. Which is still a restriction for most people. My Dr recommends eggs over oatmeal now (Low simple carb). 2300mg max and 1500mg min of salt and 75gms of fat a day.

    Ditto. I don't eat hard boiled eggs unless someone else cooks them. I get fresh potato salad at the store for that evening. That's about the only way I'll eat them. They stink up the house otherwise.

    Cold eggs and cold water in a pot. Heat until one egg moves by bubbles. Remove from heat cover the pot and let stand for 17 minutes. Then run under water to cool down. Works every time with store bought eggs. Yard eggs are hopeless to peel. I just use them fresh.

    The results can be cross referenced with those who have good taste and other generally desirable traits.
    Except, you CANNOT make deviled eggs using "the soft-boiled thing".

    Buy Scotch eggs, peel off meat. Easy.

    The results can be cross referenced with those who have good taste and other generally desirable traits. For sure those with the soft-boiled preference will be seen to be solidly in the group with other generally desirable traits.

    I mean ... hard-boiled ... how can you eat that dried out rubbish.

    Recipes for hard boiled eggs might have inspired the plot conflict in Swift's depiction of Liliput.

    Wife: THAT'S got spam in it!
    Man: Hasn't got as much spam in it as spam egg sausage and spam, has it?
    Vikings: Spam spam spam spam (crescendo through next few lines)

    Cooks Illustrated and the TV program America's Test Kitchens are right on. Steaming is the way to go.

    We don't do hard boiled. Soft boiled requires only 6 1/2 minutes in steam. Never fails.
