How many minutes is the best cooked egg

I don't like the green iron rings, and do you keep it at a boil, turn the water off - heard so many options.

  • My husband and I just figured out how to make the perfect boiled egg.

    Put the egg in a pot of water.
    Bring to a boil.
    Turn off the heat and put a cover on the pot and then just leave it there.

    They boil perfectly and it's so easy! No timing needed :)

  • 9 mins for 4-5 eggs. Once the water starts to boil, turn the burner off and cover and let sit for 9 min........Make sure they are covered with water, and the pan large enough. Put salt in the water and it makes them easier to peel.........good luck hon.
