But make them to take somewhere or having company come over - then the little buggers hold on to those shells like crazy.
    Yeah, my mothers eggs for company were perfect too. That's because she would double the amount she needed and then just put out the perfect ones. We ate imperfect eggs for days after.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I have chickens so I just age a dozen or so when I want boiled eggs. Put number desired in cold water, bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and time for 20 minutes. Immediately drain and fill pan with cold water, add ice cubes to get really cold water. let sit a few minutes until eggs are cold. Peel immediately or refrigerate until needed. I like a boiled egg in my salad and this is the method I use. I also peel from the round end where the air pocket is. 99% of the time this works. but once in a while you get an egg that just won't peel nicely.
    I have never tried them, but I have seen already boiled, peeled, and packaged eggs in the deli section of my grocery store. Pretty pricey but I guess some people like the convenience of not having to deal with boiling and peeling.

    This is what I do.

    This is exactly what I do (in a glass container with water)and have shared this method and everyone is amazed at how easy this is and really works extremely well! and I love my egg cooker that my sister raved about. So glad I bought one when it went on sale. best gadget I have purchased in a quite awhile.

    Cook them in an Instant Pot. They peel like a dream, and it only takes 5/6/7 minutes to cook, depending on how hard-boiled you want them.

    I like mine HARD-boiled, so I cook them for 7 minutes, let the pressure release naturally for 7 minutes (then quick-release any remaining pressure), and soak them in ice water for 7 minutes. Perfect eggs every time, and you don't have to baby-sit a pot of boiling water!

    surely agree with this - I do mine 4 minutes with 4 minutes natural release and then ice bath. Also perfect and no green rings!
