I saw a Tik Tok video a couple days ago that showed to gently crack an egg on the round bottom before boiling. I eat more eggs than anyone probably should and usually buy peeled hard boiled eggs from Costco because I’ve tried every method known to easily peel an egg and they didn’t work. This way is amazing.
BTW I changed the title of this thread from “why am I just learning this” to “I’m easily impressed”.
Over the years I’ve tried them all, older eggs, using room temperature eggs, starting with cold water, adding vinegar to the water, do a Voodoo dance before boiling, etc and none worked very well for me. I was just amazed how well it works, but I’m also easily impressed.
What tends to work for me, set the eggs out and let the water boil. Drop all the eggs into the water. Let it get back to boiling, cover then turn the stove off. Let it sit for 25 minutes then plunge into an ice bath for about 10-15 minutes.
I eat a fair amount of eggs. That works most of the time.
Costco is great for electronics because of the price and perks they offer, although I’ve never used the concierge service. I bought my kid an Apple laptop a couple years ago, a few months after the purchase I received a $100 Costco gift card in the mail with a letter saying something about they negotiated a better deal with Apple so they were giving me a hundred bucks back. That was nice of them.
