  • A very large cooking pot


  • Water enough to cover the eggs
  • 12 large Eggs


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, gently place the eggs in the water (I use a large slotted spoon to lower them in the pot). Make sure the eggs are in a single layer in the pot… they shouldn’t be stacked. And the boiling water should come up over the egg.
  • For soft boiled eggs, cook 6-7 minutes, for hard boiled eggs cook for exactly 11 minutes. See chart on this page for cooking times.
  • Once the time is up, bring the pot over to the sink, drain some of the hot water out, and run cold tap water over the eggs. Let the eggs sit in the water for a few minutes until they start to cool all the way through.
  • You can either peel them now under the cold water, or put them directly in the fridge and peel later. Either way, your eggs will come out perfectly. Every. Single. Time.
