Boiling Eggs - Problems at Altitude

Boiling eggs becomes progressively more difficult the higher up you are, due to the lower air pressures in higher altitudes. As a result, if you are living up 'high', then you would have to alter boiling times.
  • At 5,000 feet/1,800 metres above sea level - it's about double the required boiling time.
  • At 9,000 feet/3,000 metres above sea level - it's probably best not to bother. The water will boil and evaporate before your egg has even begun to cook. At this point, it may be best to consider an omelette or a scrambled egg
After intensive egg tasting... Le Praz Courchevel 1300 provides perfect soft boiled eggs  in 4 1/2 to 5 mins.
