I've watched it multiple times, but I still can't get it to work. Any chance you could add more instructions on this? I would absolutely love to be able to do this, as I'm sick of peeling the eggs by hand.

Basicly, you need to peel a bit of both ends of the eggs. A little more of the bottom though. Then blow as hard as you can on the smallest side. Takes a little practice.

Only do it hard boiled. I tried a runny yolk and blew molten yolk all over my hand and kitchen. Lesson learnt

Boiling for 8 minutes will over cook your eggs! Bring to a boil, then take off heat, cover, and let sit for exactly 12 minutes. Then cool them QUICKLY to stop the cooking process. Perfect eggs every time. Love your peeling method! Going to go try it out right now. haha

How do u upload a video without utube or other thing like that?

anoukkantelberg (author)1227172013-09-17

I think you can just select the video and add it as a file to the Instructable, but I haven't tried that.

That is awesome! I've never seen it done that way with a hard-boiled egg. Some better lighting, and you're well on the way to a feature/free shirt as part of the Burning Questions contest (9/16/13 - 10/28/13.)

Thanks for the feedback! I'll try to make a better one. I made this in a wave of excitement about the competition. :)
