  • Eggs (the older, the better)
  • Water
  • Ice


  1. Fill a pot with 1 1/2-2 inches of water. Cover and bring to a strong boil.
  2. Lower cold eggs into boiling water witha slotted spoon. Be careful not to splash.
  3. Count to 30.
  4. Reduce heat to the lowest simmer your pot will go. The temperature of the water at this stage should be 180-200ºF.
  5. Set a timer for 11 minutes for hard boiled eggs (6 minutes for soft boiled eggs).
  6. Fill a bowl with ice and water – the size of the bowl depends on how many eggs you are cooking.
  7. When the timer goes off, use the slotted spoon again to lift eggs out and into the ice bath. (If you’re boiling lots of eggs, reuse the water!)
  8. Allow eggs to sit in the bath for 15 minutes until completely cool. (Save this cool water to pour on your house plants!)
  9. Store in the refrigerator or peel now.
