    you steam farm fresh eggs and they peel nicely. even eggs that you collect the same day.

    Add a pinch of salt to your water before adding your eggs. Has always worked for me. Eggs will peel smoothly.

    Try taking a regular spoon and slip it in under the shell of a problem egg. It gets right under the hard to remove shell, following the conture of the egg. It separates the shell from the egg....without tearing the egg up.

    I do the same thing, Rajean. Occasionally, with really fresh eggs I treat them like they are soft boiled. Cut them in half and scoop it out. Some of these other suggestions are worth a try. Thanks, all, for giving me some more options to use.
