Why do eggs break when boiling?

Do not add eggs directly into boiling water. Adding either salt or vinegar in the water will not prevent the egg from cracking but will congeal the white if it starts to leak out of the shell from a small crack, making the cracked egg, still pleasing to look at. Place eggs in a pot of cold water.

In this regard, how long does it take to boil eggs without a lid?

Cover them generously with water. Bring them to a boil without covering the pan. Turn off the heat and let them stand for about 15 minutes. That's it.
