Hello! Can't say I've ever heard of this.
After you poke the holes with the push pin just place the eggs in already boiling water for 8 – 10 min (or 6 min for soft boiled eggs).
When they're time is up, cool them completely with cold water.
You'll never boil eggs the old way again! Thanks to windyssukiyaki.com for this super fab trick.
