I use the boil, drain, crack/craze the shell, then submerge in cold water for half a minutes. The shell comes right off.

Often, I cheat. I break the egg into these non-stick cups that have been rubbed with butter, and salt the top of the eggs. I then put the little cups into their holder, in the egg poaching pan, cover and cook to the desired stage that I want. So I can get the equivalent of soft, medium, or hard cooked eggs, but with butter.

I know; I'm not helping. I'll go to my room now.

If you promise to behave you can stay up for 10 more minutes!

Thumbs up easy

I always put salt in the water when boiling the eggs then straight under the cold water tap , then tap them gently on the edge of the sinkand you will find them so easy to peel

You may, but I've been hard boiling eggs and peeling them in industrial quantities for over 15 years.

By all means, do it your way.
