How long do you cook your hard boiled eggs?

I always put them in cold water, with a pinch of salt, and let them go for 15 minutes after the water begins to boil on high heat. However, I am now hearing a dozen different "cooking rules".

How do YOU boil eggs?

I do it like you except I use a splash of vinegar instead of salt. Its supposed to keep the shells from cracking. I have done this with a dozen before and also a pkg of 18.

12 minutes and then a ice bath makes them the best to peel IMHO!

put your eggs in cold water, bring to a boil. When it starts boiling, turn the burner to as low as it goes, then let simmer for 10 minutes. Throw them in an ice bath till they're cool and enjoy!

I have never failed with this method.
