First, fill a bowl with room-temperature water, and dip the egg. Then crack the egg on the bottom or side of the bowl, and then you can pull the egg out easily under the force of water.

2. Use A Spoon

First, you can give the egg a good crack on a hard surface. Then insert the spoon between the shell and the egg and rotate the spoon until the shell separates completely. This way, the shell will fall off easily without causing too much mess.

3. Shake In Water

Put your hard-boiled egg in a jar filled with 1 inch of water, then cover the jar and shake it for a few seconds. While shaking the jar, the egg will crack, and the shell will fall off easily.

4. Crack And Roll

This is probably the easiest way to peel an eggshell. All you need to do is roll the hard-boiled egg back and forth until the shell completely breaks. Then start peeling the egg from the large end, separating the thin skin altogether.

5. Blow The Egg Out

Blowing the egg out sounds funny, but it actually works! First, you need to remove a quarter of the shell and peel off a corner of the shell on the top of the egg. Then bring it to your mouth, take a deep breath and blow hard until the egg pops out.
