Also if you have the option between using newly bought eggs, or old eggs you've had in your fridge for a few weeks, use the older eggs. They'll also be easier to peel after they are done.

I've always placed my eggs in as the water is warming up/almost boiling and left them there from 7-9 minutes with the heat on. Then take it off and run it under cold water for several minutes afterwards.

Honestly? I think that's obvious.

I've found the best way to hard boil an egg is to put it in the water when it is still cold, bring the water to a boil and then turn it off. Let the egg sit there for another ten minutes, after that it should be ready!

Big tip on the boiled eggs. After boiling place in cold water and let cold water run over the eggs for a few minutes to cool down. This step will make it very easy to peel. You will regret it if you miss this step. I also heard to add salt to the water before it boils.

I put the eggs in a pot with enough cold water to cover them. Put them on the stove and bring to a boil. When the water starts boiling, put the timer on for 10 mins. Rinse in cold water and peel.

Place in cold water, bring water to a boil. Take off heat and let set for ten minutes. Just like everyone else said! But if you plan on peeling them soon after, add a tbsp of baking soda. It'll help them peel a lot easier.
