When boiling hard boiled eggs, try this. After boiling is completed, pour off boiling water and fill with cold water. Fill pan with ice cubes and let set 15 minutes. The shells will slip right off, no mess, no fuss. The ice cubes are a life saver and a time saver.

I do something similar with my eggs. I find that the pan stays too hot, so after they're done boiling I put the eggs in a Tupperware bowl with cold water and ice cubes and then lay an ice pack on top.
