For perfect hard-cooked or hard-boiled eggs time follow this method and you’ll always have the perfect hard-cooked egg.
Place the eggs in a medium saucepan, cover with 1 inch of water, and bring to a boil over high heat.
As soon as the water reaches a boil, remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes. Transfer the eggs to an ice-water bath, chill 5 minutes, then peel.

After draining the hot water from the pot used to cook the eggs, shake the pot back and forth to crack the shells.
Add enough ice water to cover the eggs and cool. The water seeps under the shells, allowing them to be slipped off without struggle.
