  • 6 eggs cold

Helpful Equipment:


  • Bring about 1-2-inch water to a boil and place cold eggs (right from the fridge) in a steamer basket over the simmering water. For soft-boiled eggs, steam the eggs for 6.5 minutes. For had-boiled eggs, steam for 14-15 minutes. Then immediately drop the eggs into iced water.
  • To peel the eggs, gently tap and roll each egg on a counter to crack the shell all over. Then put them back into the water and soak for about 15 minutes or so. What we’re trying to do here is to seep water through the cracks and in between the egg and thin membrane under the shell. And then carefully peel the hard shells. If it’s still hard to peel, dip it in the water to moisten, or peel under running water.
