My method is similar to Michael's but I would recommend a longer resting time, like nearly double, about 18 minutes.

The problem with starting with cold water, especially with a different number of eggs each time, is a distinct lack of consistency. My solution is to steam 'em for 12 minutes -- perfect every time.
