    how the hell do you peel hard boiled eggs?

    I know there is a way to cook hard boiled eggs so they peel easily without the shell crumbling into tiny pieces.

    please someone let me know.

    as soon as you are done boiling the eggs, put them under cold water and peel them under the water, u wil have no problems... i think you are letting them cool down, before you peel them... am i right?

    OK i used to be a chef and used to shell hundreds a day and this is the way to do it.

    Place the egg on your bench in front of you so it sits long ways in front of you. Place you hane flat on top of it so that you hear it crack. Then roll.

    If done correctly you will find that the shell comes away in two parts/

    You have to let them boil longer enough but you also have to peel them ASAP after you pull them out of the water and don't crack the whole egg just break a small part of the shell and peel it off.


    I actually no longer boil my eggs I put a dozen on the in a veggie steamer and steam for 20 minutes and the eggs come out of the shells really easy and they are better than hard boiled.. Same concept but the whites are less rubbery and the yolks are not hard they are more fluffy.. You have to do for the full 20minutes or they will be under cooked.

    I do that but then I use a spoon to peal, usually in 2 or 3 peices.

    my wife was watching Martha Stewart a few weeks ago & Martha said to cut the egg in half longways with a butter knife & then scoop the egg out of the shell with a spoon. Haven't tried it yet, so don't know how well it works. Usually just roll under a hand to crack the shell & it comes off pretty easy

    Go to Target and get that egg peeler thingy that looks like the pump for an exercise/ab ball. You drop an egg in, depress, and the peeled egg pops out the bottom.

    After boiling I place them in a bowl of cold water, crack them gently and remove the shell with a spoon. This works great!

    I'd have to say to perfect it you need to really understand your stove...

    I have a gas stove and I use pot big enough to fit the amount of eggs I want to cook, have the water level slightly over the the tops of the eggs so they're completely submerged. Since gas stoves heat up stuff very fast I keep the burner on the highest level and once I kick it on I set a timer for 18 minutes.

    As soon as the timer goes off you need to remove the heat and run the eggs under cold tap water. This will keep the iron and other minerals in the yolk from settling around the edges (causing the green looking yolk) and makes the yolk taste better in my experience. (if you eat the yolk.. I eat a few) I then fill the pot with the cold water and allow the eggs to sit for about 10 minutes to cool off. Then peel them under lukewarm tap water and half of the shell easily peels off for me and I blaze through a dozen eggs in just a minute or two.

    I put boiled eggs under cold running water, then crack the shells after it cools. The shells come right off.

    Just don't put boiled unshelled eggs back into the refrigerator because the shell will stick on to the egg like hell.

    After you run cold water over the egg ('shocked' it and caused contraction) allow it to come down to room temperature before placing them in the refrigerator -- unpeeled if you wish. This should work for your 'stick' situation.

    BTW thanks to the chef for the pro-peeling advice. I will put it to good practice in the future.

    add salt to the water it causes the membrane to pull away and peels easier and no salt is added to your eggs either...

    Roman's Perfect Hardboiled Eggs!

    put # of eggs in to maybe half way rill the pot. water must cover top egg plus probably another half inch. Use cold tap water
    Bring water to a full and complete boil
    cover pot, and turn off heat. do not remove from burner (it still has some heat)
    let stand 3 minutes, then immediately begin cooling off egg by running cold water
    prefer to peel right away.

    for even better eggs, you must prepare them.

    How do I do that I hear you say?

    easy. all you need it 1 thumbtack. poke a hole all the way through the shell on each end. this will allow hot air to escape and completely fill the shell, making perfect hard boiled eggs!

    Go ahead. Try it. See if it doesn't make the perfect hard boiled eggs!

    Okay this is probably gonna sound stupid, but do you poke the holes before or after you're done boiling them??
