How to Hard Boil Eggs
Place eggs in Meyer Select Stainless Steel Milk Panlarge enough to hold them in a single layer. Add cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. To boil, heat them over high heat for about 4-5 minutes (soft-boiled eggs) and 9-15 minutes to make them hard-boiled eggs.
Remove from the stove and cover the pan. Let eggs stand in hot water for about 15 minutes for large eggs. (Note : 12 minutes for medium eggs; 18 minutes for extra-large).
Drain the water immediately and serve warm; or else you can cool them completely under cold running water or in a bowl of ice water, then refrigerate.
Expert Tip : Hard-boiled eggs are easiest to peel right after cooling.
