The Last Word on Hard-Cooked Eggs?

I did have a run of cracked eggs for a while, but the problem wasn't the method. It seems that there was a stretch of time where the shells had weak spots in them. Now I check the shells for what looks like thin spots before I choose them to boil. Instead, I set those aside for scrambled or to use in baking now.

I was going to experiment with the eggs and open them every other day. Half peeled right away and the other half with their shells.

Well I will try again just after I recuperate from eating all these eggs that I accidentally simmered for who know HOW long.

the timer on the stove has bamboozled me more than once - I had set it for HOURS instead of MINUTES!

the whites are still tender so it couldn't have been that long - but the ring is there.

When I do eggs on the stove top I boil the water first, put the eggs in and set the timer for 12 minutes.

Kathleen has taken to using the Instapot and it works a treat. Not sure her exact timing.

I buy peeled HB eggs packed in plastic nitrogen filled bags that have a shelf life of 3 months. Are they fresh until then? Yes. As iong as you don't open the nitrogen filled bag.

I honestly can't imagine buying hard boiled eggs other than at a deli, when you are buying a sandwich and/or other things for lunch that you will be taking back to your desk to eat or in the car for a trip.

I saw them on the shelf, in a big box store (can't remember which) for the first time only a couple of months ago. I didn't pick them up to examine so have no idea if they are shelled or how the packaging is. I believe they were only packaged in 4's?
I also don't know the price to compare but remember thinking 4 cooked eggs for the price of 12? or somewhere in that vicinity.

who would pay that? I don't get it. but obviously from what some of you say there is a market for them.

I'll never say never but really do have a hard time imagining I would purchase some to have at home 'cause I might want to make egg salad sandwiches later that week!

I've seen those pressurized containers of eggs in the store. I haven't bought them yet, but it's fun to pick up the container and jiggle them about. It curiously pleasurable akin to popping bubblewrap.

I've bought them, but only when I am away from home and need sustenance that aligns with my diet. No more donuts and chips for me. The same place I get the eggs also sells a cheese and hard salami sandwich. Two co-jack slices with a slice of hard salami, nothing else. Yummy!

Had to revisit this thread after using Kenji's method a couple of times with different cartons just to verify results. Amazing difference! Not one bad peeler out of 2 dozen eggs so far. That is a positive result as far as I'm concerned. I increased the cooking time by 2 minutes because we live at 4200 feet and boiling water is only about 204° here.

From fridge to boiling water (13 minutes) to ice water (15 minutes) and back to fridge. 24 perfect eggs and counting.

Edit: I even had a couple of them in the first patch crack, but it wasn't a serious problem. The eggs still peeled well and just didn't look quite as pretty. That would only matter if I was making deviled eggs. I usually boil them to have them on hand for a quick breakfast or lunch.

Good Morning everyone. I love to keep hard boiled eggs on hand for a quick snack. I keep six at a time in the fridge, open the door and there they are, jut waiting for me to grab one.
