How to 'Peel' Hard-Boiled Eggs Without Peeling

I saw this one online with my husband. he said his daughter has sent her the link through an email. We were curious at first that we want to see how a hard-boiled egg can be peeled without peeling. And we saw it, we want to try it in our kitchen! It looks easy though but we will just make sure we can catch the egg. Watch the video so you will know what I am talking about.

Hard-boiled eggs can be annoying and time consuming to peel. In this video, master of time management Tim Ferris (author of the great book, The Four Hour Work Week), demonstrates how easy it is to get the egg without having to peel it!


Cover the eggs with water and boil on low for about 12 minutes
Cool the eggs by placing them in cold water with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and ice. The baking soda raises the pH level and reduces adherence. If you choose not to use baking soda, be sure to move the eggs into cold water with plenty of ice immediately after boiling
Crack the top of the egg and remove a small piece
Crack the bottom (wide end) of the egg and remove a small piece
Hold the egg in your hand and blow vigorously into the narrow end of the egg, which will expel it out the wide end
Doesn’t get much easier than that! Just be ready to catch it when it comes out…
