Put the eggs in the saucepan and add enough water to cover the eggs so the tops of the eggs are 1 inch below the top of the water. Put the saucepan on top of the stove and turn the heat to medium-high. When the water boils, take the saucepan off the heat and put the cover on top. Let the covered saucepan stand for 18 minutes. Then take off the cover and put the saucepan in the sink. Run cold water over the eggs until they don't feel warm anymore.
