    If you use this recipe the eggs will be underdone.

    My mom gave me very similar directions on the perfect hard boiled egg recipe. Except she said from 11-14 minutes on the egg...maybe it depends on the size of the egg or the freshness of it. But we usually averaged it out to 12 minutes. Or as my mother was famous for saying, "you judge"! :)

    Been using this method for years, perfect every time. I don't get the less than 5 rating. If you can't get this right, might be time to leave the kitchen.

    Steaming eggs is the only way to peel perfectly regardless if they are fresh eggs or not. I use the steamer basket of my rice cooker.

    Once you steam your eggs, you'll never do anything else.

    This is how my mother taught me and they have always been perfect. She said to remove them right when they came to a boil and cover for 20 minutes though.

    Perfect every time. You've got a problem if you can't wait till it boils. Cooking is patience.
