I also counts on how fresh the eggs are and how easily they are to peel.

Putting the eggs immediately into cold water also stops the black ring appearing just inside the shell.

cool eggs in cold water after boiling, by cracking while cooling, the water seeps in to help loosen the membrane from the white. To avoid black ring around egg yolk, boil for less time (10 minutes is ample, and cool immediately)
