The best way I've found is to cook them in a pressure cooker for 7 minutes. The shells slip of easy.

The best is yet to be.

I have tried the white vinegar as well. But hadn't let them sit for an hour. Thanks for this tip. Will give it a try.

The best way to get boiled eggs to peel easily is to add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to the cold water and eggs. Bring to a boil as you usually do and turn off heat, cover pot and let sit for one hour. Works every time. I put them in the refrigerator still in their shells and they will still peel easily all week long.

This method always works for me:

1) Bring pan of water to an angry boil (enough to cover eggs)
2) Lower eggs carefully into water
3) Quickly bring water back to a boil
4) Cover, remove from heat and wait 12-15 mins (depends on egg size)
5) Drain, rinse in cold water, peel as soon as they can be handled

My big challenge with hard boiled eggs was finding a way to make it easy to shell the eggs once they were cold. If I boiled them on Sunday for next week at work, it was sometimes difficult to find a method that allowed the aged shells to easily come off.

The only way that worked for me was to boil sufficient water, then slide the eggs into the boiling water. Keep the water at a slight boil for 13 mins for large; 15 mins for jumbo eggs. Plunge them in cold water to stop the cooking.

Then even a week later, the shells come off easily.

If I was making deviled eggs and breaking the shells immediately, there were a lot of different ways to do them as mentioned in prior posts. I see that someone didn't mention baking the eggs in the oven. This method works pretty well and there's less likely to have a broken shell.

Do you know if you can fit a full dozen in the instant pot (or any pressure cooker for that matter)? I mean like you'd obviously have to stack them up, but is there any reason that wouldn't work?

I use the Instant Pot. As many eggs as I want, usually at least 6, cup of water and bring to pressure for 6 minutes. Release the pressure and cool in room temp. water. Put in a container or bowl and roll them around into each other and the shells crack so much that they literally fall off.

Never quit dreaming.

Cool the eggs off. The fresher the egg, the better.

I know a better way, that requires no special anything.

Put 1 1/2 inches in bottom of a pan. Bring to boil. Put as many eggs as will fit in single layer in your steamer basket. Place eggs into the pan of boiling water. Cover. Steam 13 minutes. When done rinse in cool water. Peel.

Out of 12 eggs I only have one that won't peel perfectly. If I put them to cool in the refrigerator over night I have none that will not peel.
Works every time, perfectly cooked large eggs. Jumbo take 14 minutes, medium take 12 minutes.

As the tortoise goes...

I use this method for making hard boiled eggs too. Not only is this method a quick and easy way for boiling the eggs, but they peel so much easier too.

Yes, that changes the PH of the water and they peel nicely. However, the older the eggs, the better they peel too. Check the dates on your cartons and use the older ones for deviled eggs.Boiled..

I tried this today and it works. Hubby and I went to the sister in laws house on Saturday. But it was too much too soon as I had had a stimulator implant put in my spine the day before. So Easter Sunday we made the decision to stay home. We had corn custard and fruit tarts left from the day before and I wanted deviled eggs also. After all what is Easter without eggs? I tried this method I found on the internet and to my surprise it worked. I put four eggs in a pan and covered them with water. Then I added 1/2 tsp of baking soda. Next put your pan on the stove with a low heat and boil them. After they come to a boil turn off stove and cover for ten minutes. Then pour off boiling water and replace with cold water, crack shells and peel and voila. The shucks come off magically. So easy. then proceed to make your deviled eggs as you do. Delicious.
