Does it work or doesn't it?

I've always had a heck of a time peeling hard boiled eggs. I have tried numerous methods and age of eggs.
I saw this on YouTube so had to give it a try.


The baking soda seemed to help or maybe I was just lucky this time. However, as "windy" as I am, I could NOT blow the egg out of the shell. I almost passed out in the process but the darned egg was taunting me still in the shell.

Do any of you have a tried and true method to peeling hard boiled eggs?


  1. I just smack them on the side of my sink and start peeling. Usually works.. I know it's egg abuse, so arrest me! LOL

  2. We too tried the method in the video. We could not blow the egg out either. We do think the baking soda helps a bit, but for us eggs older than a week seem to work the best. I always put our farm eggs in the fridge in order. I use the very oldest when making hard boiled eggs. :)
