There are three aspects to the easier egg peel. One is to add baking soda to the water you're boiling the eggs with, which, incidentally, should leave two inches of water over the tops of the eggs. Then, as usual, you quickly cool down the eggs after about 12 minutes of slow boiling, using ice and cold water. Finally, you take the steps Ferriss demonstrates in the video: tap and remove a little shell on each end, then blow through one end to extract the egg through the shell.
No remnants, no cracked egg whites, and you could move through a batch of hard-boiled eggs at a faster clip. (Note: We'd previously posted a similar method, but noticed that video had been taken down, so we found a new source with a good explanation).
