Brian,
When you pluck them, do you dip them in 150 degree water?
It makes a big difference.

I got tired of fooling around with boiling eggs, ice water, etc.  I got a steamer from amazon.  Best purchase ever!  You probably could steam them in a vegetable steamer, but this one times it and turns off on its own.  They come in various sizes.  Only bad thing about mine is that it has a buzzer on it that sounds like the ones they use in Basketball games.  If you aren't ready for it, it's shocking   :grin:
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

I've got another tip on boiling eggs.  If you want centered yolks for deviled eggs, pickling,  or plan on eating them whole and don't want wasted eggs due to the yolk being to close to the shell, all you have to do is stir them gently as they cook. Start with the eggs in room temp water and stir until they are to the soft boiled stage.  This works really well if you are a fan of pickled quail eggs because the yolk is so much larger inside a quail egg compared to a chicken egg.  I would loose lots of quail eggs to torn whites until I learned this little trick.

P.S. I also use Julia Childs method for prepping eggs for pealing and it is flawless.
