Thanks--works perfectly and I'll never use any other method again. Is it possible to cook for less time to get a soft cooked egg?

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
I would think so, but it might take some experimentation on your part if you are willing to sacrifice a few eggs in the process. I would start checking around 2 1/2 hours cook time - crack one open and check the doneness. We love this method for making hard boiled eggs. Frankly, it's the only method we use now when we have a recipe we're testing that calls for hard-boiled eggs.

Doesn't work. Eggs are undercooked.

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
Crock pots all cook a little differently so you may have to experiment with the cooking time. Also, the temperature of the water you add can make a huge difference. As you can see from our photo, when we tested it they turned out perfectly! I hope you'll try it again!

Like the commenter above, I always have issues with making hard-boiled eggs(most of the time I overcook them). I have no doubt this recipe will work.

I'm a great cook except for the simple things like making coffee or hard cooking eggs. I can do elaborate 12 course dinners but I can't make hard cooked eggs to save my life. Until now! I tried this recipe when I needed to make egg salad and lo and behold, the eggs turned out perfect. The yolks were yellow and cooked - not runny, not green edged - just perfectly yellow and done. Thank you for this basic but foolproof recipe!
