How to make a hard boiled eggs peel easily

Cooking eggs is incredibly easy; just put them in boiling water and wait. However, the process of peeling hard boiled egg is not quick and effortless. We often end up burning our hands, putting the shell under our nails, or worse, destroying the white egg.

Why are all hard-boiled eggs not easy to peel? For a seemingly simple meal (eggs + water), hard-boiled eggs can be downright crazy, especially when it comes to peeling. You've been there before: all that's between you and the egg  (or egg salad) is a pile of eggs that have been boiled and it takes you 15 minutes to cut each one and you take out the big white gashes. and small cracks in the hard shell. It's enough to drive you crazy, even if you're not very hungry.

We are here to tell you that there is an easy way. Follow these simple tips and you'll have hard-boiled eggs in no time. 

 Use older eggs  

It turns out that the older egg is easy to peel. In newly laid eggs, the albumen or egg white sticks to the shell. As the eggs develop, water escapes from the pores in the shell while air passes through the pores. The inside of the egg starts to shrink a bit, while the air pockets at the end of the egg expand.

This has the effect of loosening the shell from the egg white, making it easier to peel. So keep the aged eggs to boil; this will save you time and trouble in the end. Use eggs stored in the refrigerator for five to ten days, as long as they are not past their expiration date.


 Add eggs to boiling water
Some cooks start by putting the eggs in room temperature water, put the pan on the fire and bring it to a boil. This is a recipe for a shell sticking disaster. Instead, you want to start your eggs in hot water so the shell is easier to peel. Bring the water to boil first, and then slowly lower eggs to pan with a spoon or a strainer.

Try steaming the eggs
Although this method is a bit more unconditional, it could be your saving grace. Simply bring your water to a boil and place a steamer basket full of eggs in the pot. Allow the eggs to steam for about 15 minutes before transferring them to a bowl of ice water. The steaming process loosens the egg skin, making the egg easier to peel and use in your favorite hard egg recipes. Even better, it's easy to place your eggs in one place in the steamer basket, without the risk of splashing the boiling water on yourself.

 Cool eggs quickly in an ice bath

 It is important to shake your freshly boiled eggs by placing them in a bowl of ice water. The quick cooling of hard boiled eggs causes egg whites to contract, leaving them on the membrane. If you let them cool for about 15 minutes, the peeling becomes easier. 

Loosen the shell before peeling
Before you start digging, give your hard egg a gentle crack on the counter. Then gently roll it in your hand to loosen the shell. Begin to roll out at the wide end of the bed, which has an air pocket that is easy to open. It can also help to peel your eggs under cold water


Use a spoon to help cut

Here's another time-saving method: Use a small spoon to slip it under the shell at the fat end of egg, and gently push it to separate the shell. This method may take some practice, but it's a quick and relatively painless way to peel a hard-boiled egg.
Following these simple tips will save you from unnecessary frustration when hard-boiling eggs in the kitchen. Nice and big, right?
