    Default cook eggs for how long?

    Hiya ladies,
    Just wondering how long do I need to leave my eggs in boiling water for now that I can't have runny ones? I hate trial and error so thought I'd find out the lazy way!

    I leave mine for about 10mins :-k -
    and dunk in cold water - so the yolks don't go grey around outside but are light yellow and fully cooked through.

    when I went under 10 mins the yolk was still bright yellow though firm'ish but not completely solid -if that makes sense.

    I've been out of home for hmm..4 years and every time I cooked eggs I had to call my mum, so last b'day she bought me an electric egg cooker!
    Makes the Worst buzzing sound but saves me a few phone calls!
    I was always like, 5 mins? 10 mins? Now, do I start with cold water?
    Call your mum(or someone similarly wise) is my advice
