How do you know when a boiled egg is ready?
Spin the Egg . Spinning the egg is an easy and quick way to check if it isdone boiling . Put the egg on its side on a flat surface and spin it. Boiledeggs will easily and quickly spin around, but uncooked eggs will wobble atfirst and then slowly spin.How to Make Perfect Hard Boiled EggsThis is a tried and true method for perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs… andthe only method I’ve used for years. (I used to struggle mightily to hard-cooka decent egg.) For those who are complaining about the yolks beingundercooked, perhaps you are starting your 17-minute timing a bit prematurely.One should wait until the eggs themselves start to “dance” on the bottom ofthe pan; this is the exact time to turn off the heat, cover, and set yourtimer for exactly 17 minutes. Do not remove the saucepan from the burner; Ibelieve the residual heat to be an essential part of completing the processcorrectly. Oh, and following these directions explicitly has always producedeggs that are easy to peel… but only after complete cooling, and I never usefresh eggs… only those that have been in the fridge for at least a week.(After cooling according to the directions posted in Chef John’s recipe, Iusually cool them in the fridge for at least an additional hour beforepeeling.) I hope these suggestions are helpful to others.This recipe completely failed me. I followed the video exactly. When I crackedone open this morning for breakfast, it collapsed in a puddle. Sodisappointed, because that means I have five more failures in the fridge athome! UPDATE: The third time I made this recipe was a charm! Turned out, myeggs were not dancing violently enough before I turned off the heat per ChefJohn’s suggestion in the video. One person’s simmer is another person’s boil,apparently. I suggest to others who had my same initial outcome (sad eggs) totry this recipe again and do not shut off the heat until you think you’vereached a boil, as I bet we share the same misconception of what “simmer”means. Thanks, Chef John!For those who’ve had trouble with the white sticking to the shell, the problemis not with the recipe…it’s that the eggs are too fresh! You should buy youreggs about a week ahead of the time you want to boil them, and let them sit inthe refrigerator (do check the date on the eggs to make sure they will stillbe fresh enough to cook). The longer the eggs sit in the fridge, the easierthey will be to peel.This recipe is great, this is how I’ve been making eggs my whole life, passeddown from many generations. The only problem I have with it is not quiteenough water and not a hard enough boil before removing from the heat source.The water should be an inch higher than the eggs in the pot, not just coveringthem and the water should be boiling violently. I can see why so many on herehave had uncooked eggs and it’s because there’s not enough water to retain theheat properly. Also, the best trick I’ve ever gotten for peeling eggs camefrom my brother-in-law. If you use a small spoon (can’t be too deep, theflatter the better) and after cooling the eggs and then smacking them all overto loosen the shell just peel a small part so you can insert the spoon underthe membrane and gently turn the spoon and lift off the shell. Works perfectlyeverytime and I never have ugly eggs, no matter how fresh they are!After following the directions as listed, I was very disappointed with how theeggs turned out. The whites clung to the shell and the yolks were barelyhard…resembling cool molasses. This is not a recipe I’d save.I didn’t know how *wrong* my eggs were until I made them the right way. Thesewere not green, they were not rubbery, and creamy is exactly how I’d describethem. Just a simple change in technique has turned a food I never touched intoa favorite snack. Thanks for teaching us the basics, Chef John!This was a fail for me. My eggs turned out like soft-boiled eggs — runnycenters. No way would they make deviled eggs! I have a couple of thoughts: Onereviewer says “I bet we share the same misconception of what “simmer” means”.Perhaps, but the video very clearly depicted a very mild simmer. The eggsmight have been just starting to “dance”, but they were not “violentlydancing” as another reviewer suggests they should. The other comment that Ithink makes some sense is to not remove the pan from the burner because theresidual heat helps to cook them. That only works if you are using an electriccooktop. Gas cooktops don’t retain enough heat. This is similar to thetechnique I have used for years from my old Betty Crocker Cookbook which saysto bring the eggs and cold water to a boil quickly and then cover and removefrom heat. Let them stand 22 to 24 minutes. I tried Chef John’s timing thistime. I won’t be using it again.Ugh! This recipe fails sometimes and sometimes not. I’m really at a loss hereto explain why it works sometimes and sometimes not. Any ideas out there?Great recipe 1. Eggs have to be a week old not new eggs 2. Bring the water toa complete boil 3. Keep on the same burner after you turn off the heat 4.Using the same burners cooks the eggs 5. Start the timer after you turn offthe heat 6. Enjoy I drained the eggs after 17 minutes added cold water and iceand let them sit for 10 minutes. This is a great recipe. I use for it inculinary school years agoHard-boiled EggsThe method is as follows:Place the eggs into a saucepan that is the right size so that they sitcomfortably and don’t crash into one another (and as an extra precaution, toprevent cracking you can prick the round end of the shell with a pin) then andadd enough cold water to cover them by about 1cm. Bring the water up to boiling point then turn to a simmer, put a timer on for6 minutes if you like a bit of squidgy in the centre, 7 minutes if you likethem cooked through. As soon as they are cooked drain off the hot water. Then,the most important part is to cool them rapidly under cold running water. Letthe cold tap run over them for about 1 minute, then leave them in cold watertill they’re cool enough to handle – about 2 minutes. This rapid cooling helpsto prevent dark rings forming between the yolk and the white. To peel them crack the shells all over on a hard surface. Then peel the shelloff starting at the wide end. After peeling rinse again in case there are anybits of shell still clinging. Once you’ve mastered the art of boiling eggs you can serve them in a varietyof ways.

How to boil an egg
To boil an egg accurately, make sure it is not fridge-cold and use a timingsuitable for the size. The timings below are for large eggs – cook for 30seconds less for a medium egg and 30 seconds more for an extra-large egg.To cook from boiling:Make sure your eggs aren’t fridge-cold (if your eggs are fridge-cold, add 30seconds to each timing below) – eggs at room temperature will have less of ashock when put into hot water and will therefore be less likely to crack.You can also use an egg pricker or pin to make a very small hole in each eggbefore boiling, which will reduce the chance of it cracking in the heat.Slowly lower the eggs into the water using a spoon – don’t just drop them.Bring a large pan of water to the boil and lower in the eggs in a singlelayer. Reduce the heat to a simmer and use the following timings for largeeggs: * 5 minutes: just-set (not solid) white and runny yolk – ideal for dipping * 6 minutes: liquid yolk and a slightly wobbly white * 7 minutes: almost set – deliciously sticky yolk * 8 minutes: softly set and ‘jammy’ – this is what you want to make scotch eggs * 10 minutes: a classic hard-boiled egg – mashable, but not dryWhen done, scoop the eggs out of the pan using a slotted spoon and put theminto a bowl of very cold water to prevent them cooking any further.Cooking from cold and leaving to restPut the eggs in a single layer in a pan and cover them with room-temperaturewater so it comes about 1cm above the eggs. Cover and bring it to the boil.When the water is boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and start timing. * 5 minutes: an almost-set white and soft, sticky yolk * 6 minutes: softly set and ‘jammy’ * 7 minutes: cooked all the way throughFor fully hard-boiled eggs, you can also turn the heat off as soon as thewater boils and leave the eggs in the water for 12 mins.When done, scoop the eggs out of the pan using a slotted spoon and put theminto a bowl of very cold water to prevent them cooking any further.
