Add Vegetable Oil to Hard Boiled Eggs

Add a little vegetable oil to the water in the pot when boiling eggs. The shells absorbs just enough of the oil so that the shells then slide right off!

Thanks so very much for this suggestion! I have been having such a hard time 'peeling' my hard boiled eggs. I put them in water, heat to low boil, remove from heat and let sit for 20-25 minutes, then refrigerate in covered container. Eggs are perfect, except for removing the shell. (03/26/2009)

Same as above, thanks again for the suggestion. I love this website, it gives a lot of good suggestions. I also liked the water deal with the sunny side up eggs. Hubby liked that one too. (03/27/2009)
