  1. I place them in cold water after boiling then roll on bench top to crack shells then run a teaspoon around egg under the shell works a treat

  2. Works well. Now do this all the time. But use a small jar with lid. Makes less mess, with me spraying water everywhere when I shake the glass

  3. It may sound picky but there is no such thing as peeling eggs it’s always been called shelling eggs ,correct me if I’m wrong 🙂 enjoy your eggs and a Merry Christmas

    • mmmm I’ve never heard of shelling eggs. For nearly 70 yrs I and my family have said peel the eggs. But it really doesn’t matter what we call it, as long as the shells are removed. 🙂
