What's the best way to hard-boil eggs?

Hard-boiling eggs

Older eggs are better for hard-boiling because there is more of an air pocket. If the eggs are fresh they will be harder to peel. Place the eggs in a single layer in a pan and cover with at least 1 inch of cold water. Place a lid on it and heat until water comes to a rolling boil. Then, turn off the heat and keep the pot covered. Let sit until eggs are cool.
