    I am defiantly going to try this. I never used to have problems with egg shelling but lately I have. They never look nice to serve with all the odd bits that come off with the shell.

    Will have to give that a try.

    Hmm, I can take the shell off in one piece in about 2 seconds, with a spoon.

    Definitely try this one out. I was really surprised with the results and was able to peel a dozen eggs in under 4 minutes.

    I hard-boiled a dozen eggs the other day and peeled them in a couple of minutes using the tap-and-roll method. I've tried the various water methods and they don't work for me as well as for some, I guess.

    This was my first time trying the hack and I was really surprised with the results. The best way to achieve this egg cracking way is to shake the jar up and down rather than side to side as it'll just swirl round the jar that way. I've never tried the tap and roll method but I definitely will next time! Thanks.
