    The chefs on FOOD NETWORK all say bring to boil, turn off heat, cover, let sit for 13 minutes. This is perfect for me...whites done and yolks softly done.

    To insure that eggs peel easily, even eggs straight from the grocery, add about a quarter cup of salt. Use cheaper rock salt if you have it handy.

    And a trick I learned eons ago about peeling kiwi, use a teaspoon to slide up under the cracked shell to remove quickly.

And, no, my husband doesn't know the real story!

    I got wrapped up in something else and let egg pan boil dry. Like really dry. I heard a loud popping sound and found shells, yolks and rubbery whites all over the kitchen.

    Doesn't the cooking time depend on how many eggs you place into your pot?

    I'm thinking not because they all come to the boil at the same time and are left to sit the same time.
