  • 7-9 minutes. If I'm eating them just out of the shell, 7min so the yolk is nice and soft. If I'm adding them to another dish or making deviled eggs, 9 minutes.
    Add the eggs once the water is boiling and start timer.
    (this time frame is for up to 6 eggs at a time. After that you need to add more time).

  • 10 minutes. If I'm boiling them for macaroni salad, I just put them in with the macaroni - they both get done at the same time, and I save dishes. lol

  • I bring mine to a boil for 5 minutes, cover, remove from heat, and let sit 20 minutes. Perfect eggs every time.

  • I let mine boil for about 7-8 minutes then let the water cool off before adding ice to cool them enough to peel.

  • I bring to a boil, cover, turn stove off, and let sit for 10 minutes. They're perfect every time - not sticky in the middle, not green around the yolk, no soft white.
