No Fail, Peelable Hard Boiled Eggs :: (No pin holes, No baking soda, No voodoo)

We spent years and tears in our sweaty test kitchen trying to come up with the hard and fast formula for an easy to peel, hard boiled egg.  Jealous, we watch the viral video of the guy peeling an egg by blowing on it. Beaten, we listen to those prattle on about just having the knack for it! We clawed at the Web for ways in which others describe their secret weapon only to fail miserably.  But it is that failure that drove the pursuit. And we've CONQUERED!  It was a break through!
You need:

Place a single layer of eggs in a pot.  Add enough water to cover the eggs plus 1/2 an inch more.  Place on high for 10 minutes.  Set timer.

When buzzer goes off turn off the stove leaving the eggs to sit for another 10 minutes.

When the buzzer goes off again, empty out the hot water and replace with cold tap water filled to the top of the pot and let them sit in that for another 10 minutes.

Peel and eat.  Let me know if you can blow them out of the shell!

The key here is Moderately SLOW (not hastiness) and controlled cooling.
