WOW. I've tried many egg-boiling techniques, and quite frankly never knew they could turn out this perfect. I'll never use another method the rest of my life. Thanks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
PERFECT! I just let the eggs sit in the ice bath while I peeled 2 dozen that I did all at once. I also found out that if I cracked around the eggs "waist line" & cracked the flat, thickest part I was able to get under the skin & with running water......they peeled just like taking off their jacket. THANKS EMERIL! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My eggs turned out perfectly. I have never had eggs cooked just right without that green ring around the yolk. I will keep this in my file for quick reference. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a good method and the timing is right. Just make sure to keep eggs cold if you are going to peel right away. Looking good on the inside. Perfect for egg salad sandwiches for our Mother's Day Tea Party! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My eggs stuck a little, but that could be because they were older. They were cooked all the way through, so no problems there. I'll try this way again with fresher eggs, but all in all I'd say it worked better than my old way. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Perfect!! For those saying they were under or over done, have you thought it could be your range or your cookware? Some cookware heats unevenly and can cause issues, same with a burner that is heating unevenly. Yes this evens affects boiling eggs. I have boiled my eggs using this method for years and they are perfect every time, fresh eggs or a bit older. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree with ranfitz on this one. Made it exactly like the recipe stated (used a timer too but the whites were stuck to the eggshell and the inside whites were raw. item not reviewed by moderator and published
