Perfect hard-boiled eggs:

Arrange the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan.

Add just enough tap water to cover. Bring to a  boil and cook one minute.

Furthermore, you never wind up with split or cracked eggs. Those problems happen when you add cold eggs to boiling water and are caused by the sudden expansion of the air bubble inside the shell because of the heat.

Since eggshells are porous, if you warm the egg slowly, that air eases out gently (if you. watch closely, you’ll see the bubbles).
