  • 4 Fresh eggs the fresher, the better
  • 1 liter Water
  • pinch Salt optional


  • Remove fresh eggs from the refrigerator about 10-15 minutes before cooking to prevent cracking during boiling.
  • Add enough water to the saucepan to cover the eggs by at least an inch. Add a pinch of salt if desired.
  • Carefully place the eggs in the saucepan in a single layer, avoiding overcrowding for even cooking.
  • Set the saucepan on high heat and wait for the water to come to a rolling boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. This is the key to achieving perfectly cooked eggs.
  • For a creamy yolk, let the eggs simmer for precisely 10-12 minutes, depending on your preference.
  • As soon as the timer goes off, transfer the eggs to an ice-cold water bath. This stops the cooking process and makes peeling easier.
  • Once cooled, tap the eggs gently on a hard surface, roll them to crack the shell evenly, and peel under running water for smooth results.
