I know what you say is true, Andy, but it's what I'm used to, I guess. I've tried the newer recommended way of cooking eggs, and I find that the yolks don't get completely done. I guess it's not just me, because I have noticed chefs on Food TV using "properly cooked" hard-boiled eggs, and their yolks aren't completely cooked through either.
