Article is wrong starting at the headline. If you want easily peeled hard cooked eggs, don't boil them. Steaming eggs is much better.

I hard boil mine in my InstaPot and they are super easy to peel that generally when you start where you crack it, the shell comes off in 2-3 large pieces.

Has ANYONE ever had trouble peeling an egg? If so, do a Billy Madison and start back in 2nd grade and work your way through school again.

Your enthusiasm...shocks me.

Despite your best efforts, should you find yourself with a hard-to-peel egg, use a moistened teaspoon and work it in between the egg and shell.  (I get super-fresh eggs from a neighbor and am too impatient to let them age a bit before hard-boiling - hard-steaming, whatever)

Deviled eggs are the bomb!

This. I've probably boiled hundreds of eggs in my InstantPot and I've had trouble peeling maybe 5 in that time.

I steam my eggs.

Pressure cooker. On a rack.  Fridge-cold eggs.

When the steam starts coming out, set a timer for 5 minutes.
When the timer goes off, turn off the heat.  Set another timer for 5 minutes.
When that timer goes off, put the eggs in an ice bath.

DONE

Yes
Last time I made some they would peel in 10,000 tiny pieces. It was aggravating as fark.
Made them plenty of times before and had no problem. Not sure what was different that time.

Yes, you ass.

I live at 7,000 ft above sea level and my water boils at a cooler temperature than yours does. This completely affects the way my eggs peel. Therefore I have to use a pressure cooker to cook them.

It doesn't matter much how you cook them. The ice water bath is the key.

We have this weird deviled egg holder. I say weird, because it has cups for 14 halves. Granted, if my wife is doing deviled eggs and starts with nine eggs, 14 halves making it to the tray is about as good as it gets.

Poking a small hole on the wide side of the egg before boiling can help. air is forced out of the egg, and then when you immerse them in cold water after boiling the water goes in, creating a water layer between the egg and shell.

/do not poke a hole in both sides of the egg

I eat boiled eggs ALL THE TIME. Last 2 times I do the exact same thing as every time before but they won't peel.

The film between the egg and shell is super tough and doesn't come away from the egg properly. It's a Goddamn mess. I'm blaming the eggs.

Now that I think about it, it didn't used to be the case. Hum?

I make hard boiled eggs often to keep them in a Tupperware for easy proteiny snacks. I may be insane but I think I recall something about adding salt to the water? Is that a thing?

Actually did pressure cook eggs in Montana. But it was more a as steam exited the relief valve give it another minute before pulling the relief and plug.

Worked pretty well. Cooked whites and creamy yolks.

For whatever reason I used to have lots of trouble peeling eggs. Might be I was overcooking them. I've had less trouble recently. Anyway, this thing works great for stubborn shells.

This is bull. Nobody knows how to reliably make eggs easy to peel. I remember once boiling several eggs, one was hard to peel, several were super easy.  When it comes to egg peeling you are nature's bjtch and there is nothing you can do about it.

I like the Bridget and Julia method of putting the eggs in cold water, heat to a boil and turn off burner and wait twelve minutes.  Cold water bath until luke warm.  I never have a problem.

This is also my method but I've reduced the time to 10 minutes. I'm basically at sea level so maybe that has something to do with it.

It was supposed to be 13 but that was a little to hard boiled.
