Reviews for Hard-Cooked Eggs
"You must boil those eggs for a few minutes first before they done. 6 minutes for mine. Then turn off and put in cold water to cool."
"My yolks were undercooked, but that may be because of our high elevation. If you live at high elevation, you will need to let the eggs cook a few more minutes or let them stand in the hot water longer."
"I just learned how to steam eggs. Love it!! one cup water in your sauce pan add steamer basket add eggs put the lid on it and steam for 15 min. Perfect!!"
"I found the video helpful. When I crack my eggs I crush the ends first. It seems to help"
"I have used this recipe for years works great. I add a little salt to the water just in case an egg cracks, this prevents it from running all over in the water. Drain and add the cold water, works great."
