I always make my boiled eggs this way. Mom always put salt in the water though. I think it was so that if the egg cracked it would not "spread" all through the water. Anyway, for those people who said this recipe did not work, I think some of them are not putting the cover on the pot when they first put the eggs on the stove (at least one failed review read like that). You have to cover the eggs with water (I use cold water), then put the lid on the pan, then bring it to a boil. After that leave the lid on the pot while timing for 15 minutes. And if someone has trouble peeling the eggs, I think it's the fault of the freshness of the eggs, not the fault of the cooking method. I cool the eggs in cold water first, but then I peel them under cold running water (I don't refrigerate first). This helps get the peel off, but if an egg is too fresh, it will be harder to peel. Anyway, this method has always worked for me!
