    Take a sharp pin and gently make a small pin hole in the large end of the egg prior to boiling it. (apparently it releases some of the air so there is less pressure while boiling).

    I have better luck if I put the eggs in before bringing the water to a boil. I just put the eggs in the cold water, and then put it on the stove. It also helps to make sure that you have enough water to cover the eggs during the entire cooking process. In other words, start with enough water to allow for evaporation.

    light a match and put it out and then drop it in the water, it sounds bonkers but it works!

    Once the water starts boiling, turn it down, then very carefully and slowly place the eggs in the water. I use a spoon to lower them into the water. Once they’re all in there, then turn the burner back up. It works for me.

    Just add a couple of dops of vinegar to the water when boiling. This seems to work for me and boil them a little more slowly.

    let them warm to room temperature before boiling them.It also helps to put them in the water BEFORE you put it on the stove. Let the eggs heat up with the water, and the instant it boils, take it off the heat. The eggs will continue to cook in the hot water. Doing it like that will also help prevent your yolks from turning that nasty green color.

    Adding salt to the water helps. Keeping the eggs outside the fridge also.Why do all of uf keep them in the fridge if at the market they aren’t….?

    start the eggs with cold water to match the temp of the eggs from the fridge, bring them to a quick boil, then turn down to an idle simmering boil.

    Add some vinegar to the water and place eggs in water before starting to heat. Also make sure your eggs are completely covered with the water vinegar mix.

    Make sure you don’t put too many eggs in your pot at a time or they will bounce off of each other and crack.

    My secret is put cold water and have the eggs put in slightly (don’t drop the eggs). Turn heat to medium. When water boiled, turn heat off and remove from heat. Let egg sits for 5 to 10 minutes.This trick mostly work. Some eggs may already have light cracks on them before you cook.
