Tips for a perfect cooked egg – Hard boil an egg
How to prevent the egg shell from breaking when cooked.
We start by “before cooking the egg” Do you have to prepare beforehand to cook an egg? … Yes, because for example it is convenient that you take them out a little before the refrigerator , otherwise, when submerged in boiling water they can crack easily.

How to get the yolk to be in the center of the egg
Has not it ever happened that you split them in half to make stuffed eggs and the yolk is on the side? … To avoid this it is convenient to introduce them in boiling water instead of cold , since the same boiling water will cause the egg moves by turning.

Hard egg cooking time
There are two possibilities, either to introduce the egg when the water is cold or to do it when it is boiling.
In the latter case it is advisable to leave it 1 minute longer than when we introduce it with cold water.
Once the water is boiling we must leave it between 10-12 minutes (lowering the fire a little to maintain the boiling point) depending on the size of the egg or the number of those that we are cooking.
If you leave it longer the yolk will tend to get greenish and we should not consume them like that.

A trick to prevent the shell from sticking is to have a bowl of cold water and some ice prepared and let it cool there.
