In the past, I would throw 2 dozen in a pot and bring them to a boil, turn off the burner, cover the pot and let them sit for 22 minutes. They turned out fine, except peeling them was always iffy. I would add baking soda to the water and that would help but not always. I would let them cool completely and sometimes that would help, or at least I thought it did. It was never perfect and the boiled eggs would look a little rough because of my struggle peeling them. And..... it took forever to peel them!
Now... I use a rice steamer to prepare my hard-boiled eggs. It is easy, no mess, take 22 minutes and the eggs are EASY to peel and turn out perfect.
Here is my steamer. I add 2 cups of water into the bottom. Add 12 eggs into the insert, and set my phone timer for 22 minutes.
After 22 minutes, I remove the eggs and put them in an ice and water filled bowl for 10 minutes.
They are easy and to peel, it takes just a few minutes to remove the shells.
They turn out perfect every time.
