      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!

      Yes indeedy! This is the way my Mama showed me how to cook hard boiled eggs,and the way I showed all my kids, who I am pretty certain will in turn show their kids. Fool proof and definitely easy! Great idea, Kimke, to post such a practical and helpful technique.

      My mother wasn't much of a cook so everything I learned was from trial and error. I read in a magazine many moons ago about how this is the way you can cook eggs. It is full proof. No worries about watching the stove or your eggs breaking. It is a fantastic kitchen tool to know.
