I've been using the crazy easy method from the older thread for about four months now. Consistently, I lose about 25% of the eggs to cracking (sometimes full-on rupture with egg exploding out the end into the pot!). I'm lowering them oh-so-carefully into the pot, using a skimmer. I'm talking probably a careful 15 seconds just to lower a single egg. And still, they crack in the middle of the cooking process. Does anybody have any ideas?? It's still a definite improvement over my old method which resulted in a zero percent beautiful egg success rate, but it's frustrating.
