Fill the pot with half an inch of water. I know this sounds crazy but bare with me.

Place the pot over a medium-high heat, bring the water to the boil.

Step 2: Set a Timer for 8 Minutes.

8 minutes will give you a perfect hard-boiled egg.

Now the water is boiling add your eggs.

Cover with the lid and start the timer.

By only using a ½ inch of water instead of several cups means your eggs are cooked quicker.

Step 3: Now That the Timer Has Gone Off Take the Pot Off the Heat Straight Away.

Drain the water from the pot before added the eggs to an ice water bath.

By shocking the egg with the cold water it will make the egg easier to peel.

Let them sit for a few minutes.

Great Job!

Try this sometime, it works very well. Place a steaming basket in a pot with an inch or less of water. Bring to boil & reduce.Add cold eggs, I can get eight into the seamer. Steam for fifteen minutes. Dump hot water. Throw eggs into plastic container (which has a lid ) ice water bath, at least fifteen minutes, but I have let them go for 30. Drain water, leaving eggs in container with lid - shake vigorously until you think all the shells have been broken, Peal eggs right off, no fuss. Cheers
