Tip: Use a Probe Thermometer for Foolproof Hard-Boiled Eggs

It isn't difficult to hard-boil an egg, but it is easy to wander away from the kitchen while the water heats up, only to return to a pot of eggs that have been at a rolling boil for who-knows-how-long. For the forgetful or impatient among us, here is a tip to make sure that never happens again.

Brandon at Kitchen Konfidence uses his probe thermometer to track the temperature while bringing a pot of eggs and water to a boil. He sets the alarm to go off at 209°F, so he has enough time to get to to kitchen before the water comes to a full boil — no more accidental overcooking or sad, gray yolks.

He has several more tips for perfectly-cooked, easy to peel hard-boiled eggs, including using a little baking soda in the water and poking the shell with a pin before cooking.
