Usually I place my eggs in the pan, cover with enough water to cover them and then set it on the burner. Counting from the time the water begins to boil, lower the temp until it's a rolling boil, then I wait 12 minutes.

15 minutes but don't boil - set eggs in cold water, bring to boil, turn the heat off, leave in place and cover the pan for 15-20 minutes. Stir if you need the centers pretty i.e. devilled eggs.

You don't actually "boil" them—simmering for 8-12 minutes, from cold, is recommended in all the English language textbooks I've used as a teacher of English as a second (or foreign) language and it works OK for me and my students. ;-) Be careful NEVER to use *very fresh* eggs, or you will NOT be able to peel them! Grab the eggs that have been languishing for *over a week* in your fridge and, as suggested, stir them to 'center' the yolks. You can't go wrong that way. Best wishes!

You put an egg in a pan of water. Bring it to a boil. Put a lid on the pan and turn it off. It will be done in 14 minutes. Perfect.
