    The age of the egg makes the biggest difference as to how easy or hard it is to peel. I personally don't think there is a lot of difference between a 7 minute egg and a 17 minute egg. It is only when you want it kind of runny it matters.

    Agreed. I start with a rolling boil, place eggs in for 13 minutes and then go straight to a 5 minute ice bath. They peel so easily.
