Boil water in a large saucepan over high heat. Gently drop in eggs one at a time. Adjust heat to medium-high and cook eggs for 6.5 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water and allow them to bathe for a couple minutes. Gently crack the eggs all over and peel from the wide end where there is a big pocket of air. Serve straight away.
To keep in the fridge, peel all the eggs and place in an airtight container. Use within 3 days.
I use my coffee maker to cook egg. I put the egg at the bottom, water and turn on. Since water does not boils, eggs are kept softer.
Any time I make boiled eggs I start by placing the eggs in a saucepan filled with cold water. I bring the water and eggs gently to a rolling boil over med-high heat. Once the water starts boiling, cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and turn off the heat. For soft boiled I allow the eggs to sit for 5-8 minutes. Hard boiled eggs sit covered in the pan for 15 minutes. They come out perfect every time!

Place eggs in a cook pot, add cold water and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Drain water and cover with cold water to cool them down. Peel and enjoy.
