Cracks are a major problem when boiling eggs. The boiled egg is at risk if it has even the slightest crack.



  1. Bring your eggs up to room temperature prior to boiling. The shells of the eggs may crack if they are too cold.
  2. Place the eggs into a pan of cold water. Place the pan on medium heat
  3. Bring the water to a gentle boil, stirring constantly in an anti-clockwise direction. The water’s movement helps center the yolks.
  4. Soft-boiled eggs can be cooked in four minutes. Simmer the eggs for five minutes if you want semi-firm whites and hard yolks. For hard-boiled eggs, simmer for 8 minutes.
  5. Remove the egg from the water using a slotted teaspoon. Transfer the egg to a cup of water and serve it immediately.
