    It seems all the hints that I have read (and honestly, I didn't read all 12 + pages), people want to peel the eggs immediately after boiling. However, I like to boil my eggs up (usually a dozen), keep them with the shells on in the frig, & take them to work in my lunch throughout the week. Will the pin method work eventhough I am leaving the shells on (sometimes for 6 days or so)?

    I usually get my eggs to room temp along with a large glass pot of water (let stand for about 30 minutes). Then I put the eggs in the pot, cover it, & let it come just to a simmer for about 5-10 min. Turn off the burner and let the eggs set for another 5 min, then I put them in an ice bath for 10 min.

    With the fresh eggs, it is difficult to peel the shell - so I want to try the pin method but not sure if it will work even if I don't peel my eggs right away.
