Depending on the size of the egg and the desired level of doneness, boiling times can change. The approximate times to cook eggs are as follows:

Eggs that have been soft-boiled and have a runny yolk: Once the water is boiling, carefully drop the eggs into the hot water. Simmer for four to five minutes.Slightly harder yolk and soft-boiled: Boil for approximately 6–7 minutes.
Eggs that have been hard-boiled and have a creamy yolk: Boil for nine to eleven minutes.Hard-boiled egg that has set completely: Simmer for 12 to 14 minutes.
Here's how you boil eggs generally:

In a pot or saucepan, arrange the eggs in a single layer.

Add a layer of cold water, an inch or two above the eggs, to cover them.

After setting the saucepan on high heat, pour in the water and bring it to a rolling boil.

To keep the water at a gentle boil once it reaches a boil, lower the heat to medium-high.

To reach your ideal degree of doneness based on the above-mentioned times, set a timer.

As soon as the eggs are cooked to your preferred consistency, take them out of the boiling water and place them in a dish of icy water. This helps to halt the cooking process and facilitates peeling of the eggs.

To cool down, let the eggs sit in the cold water for a few minutes.

Once the eggs are cool enough to handle, peel them.

Remember that these times are an estimate, and based on variables like altitude and the eggs' starting temperature, you might need to significantly modify them. Furthermore, peeling older eggs is frequently simpler than peeling really fresh ones.
