I don't eat hard-boiled eggs. I don't eat egg salad. I don't eat anything that has ever required me to cook a hard-boiled egg. I don't have kids so I don't color eggs at easter. What I am getting at is I had no clue how to cook these babies. I wound up needed 3 hard-boiled eggs for a recipe dare so I tried your method. It really worked. Thanks for teaching a rookie the easiest way to cook them!
