What's your way (notice I didn't say the best way, as opinions may vary) to
hard boil eggs?

TIA

Put the eggs in cold water on high heat. When it begins to
boil cover it and turn off the heat. Wait 15 minutes.
Drain and cool them off in cold water.

I use this method because it prevents green color from
developing around the yolk.

Not that it matters, but is there any reason you snipped that
out of the original post, then put it back in?

I'm the curious type.

I use my electric steamer...that seems to make them peel easier.
I put up to 10 eggs in my steamer egg-holder tray add water and turn the
timer to around 20 minutes and wander away. About a hour later I wander
back.

It's a more detailed rewording of that part of the original post. So, he
didn't snip it out then put it back in, per se.

except for the Effect Factor

Do you have any suggtestions on how to prepare hard boiled eggs?

Sometimes if I am suspicious that the eggs are "new", I will let them
soak overnight in water, then boil the next day. New eggs won't peel
worth a darn.

But eggs in warm water. Bring to boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn off heat.
Leave for 20 minutes. Drain. Shake eggs in pot to crack. Peel with running
cold water.

I put them in my small pressure cooker, cover with water, bring to
high pressure, then cook for 4-5 minutes, depending on their size.
When they're done I quick-release the pressure, then grab them out and
let them cool.

I know new eggs won't peel. How does soaking them in water over night
change that? Wendy

Since the shells are porous, soaking them overnight allows water to
soak through the shell and 'wet' the membrane that lines the shell.
This makes even fresh eggs easy to peel.

If you don't plan 12 hours ahead, a similar result can be obtained by
removing the eggs from the boiling water, cracking the shell gently
in several places. Tthen let them soak in cold water for 10 to 15
mins. The water soaks in through the cracks in the shell.
