Step one: Place the eggs in a pot with cold water. Make sure there’s an inch of water above the eggs and don’t crowd too many in the pot. (Tip: Add vinegar to the water so eggshells are easier to peel post-boil.)
Step two: Place the pot on the stovetop over high heat.
Step three: When the water starts lightly boiling around the eggs, cover the pot and move it to a burner that’s off or onto a potholder on the countertop.
Step four: On your mark... Get set... Hit the timer! See below for eggs perfectly boiled to your liking.
