Boiled Egg Frustration - Peeling

sasha1 | Apr 22, 2009 01:00 PM

Is there a trick to getting the shell off? Sometimes mine comes off nicely. Other times it tears away a large part of the egg white. I am guilty of using different methods to boil eggs (i.e. boil then shock, bring to boil then let sit for a while, etc) but have not scientifically attempted to determine which of these methods results in an easy to peel egg. Please help!
