Tips on how to boil the perfect egg:
  1. Use older eggs as opposed to newer ones you may have. (The older the egg, the easier it will be to peel)
  2. In the pot to boil the eggs, add a spoon of white vinegar and salt to the water. Bring the water to a boil then add the eggs.
  3. For a perfectly cooked egg, boil for ten minutes.
  4. Then, place in ice-cold water to cool for a few minutes.
  5. Crack on the side of a plate then peel under running water. 
All these tips should make boiling and peeling the egg effortless!
