Place eggs in small pot, cover with cold water just until eggs are fully immersed. Place eggs on burner and turn on heat, start timer. 1-5 eggs, 17 minutes, 6+ eggs, 18 minutes. Remove from heat and run cold water over until pot and water are cool. Remove to container and store, uncovered in refrigerator. Older eggs peel clean (important if making deviled eggs). This is for an electric range. Time will be much shorter on a gas range.
