Water Hack for Easier Hard-Boiled Egg Peeling  

Boil Water: Start by bringing a pot of water to a rolling boil. Make sure there's enough water to fully submerge the eggs. 

Lower Eggs Into Boiling Water: Gently lower the eggs into the boiling water using a slotted spoon or a wire mesh basket. This prevents them from cracking upon contact with the bottom of the pot. 

Boil Eggs: Allow the eggs to boil for about 10-12 minutes, depending on your desired level of doneness. 

Cold Water Bath: Once the eggs are cooked, immediately transfer them to a bowl filled with ice water using the slotted spoon or basket. The cold water bath shocks the eggs and stops the cooking process, making them easier to peel. 

Let Them Cool: Allow the eggs to cool in the ice water bath for at least 5-10 minutes. This ensures that they are fully cooled and ready to be peeled. 

Peel Under Cold Running Water: To make peeling even easier, peel the eggs under cold running water. The water helps to loosen the eggshell from the egg white, making it easier to remove without damaging the egg. 

Gently Tap and Roll: Once submerged under the cold water, gently tap the egg on a hard surface to crack the shell all over. Then, roll the egg between your hands to loosen the shell. 

Peel Carefully: Begin peeling the egg under the running water, starting from the wider end where the air pocket is located. Peel off small pieces of shell, taking care not to remove chunks of egg white with it. 

Rinse: Rinse the peeled egg under the cold water to remove any remaining shell fragments.
