Question about hard boiled egg storage.

I just hard boiled some eggs for snacks, and for the life of me I can't remember how I should store these things. Shell on or off? I did 6. How long can I store them for? Thanks!

I like to take the shells off so they are ready to go when I need them. Plus, its easier for me when they are still a bit warm

I can keep them in the fridge for up to a week, but usually I eat them all before then.

Depends how fast I will eat them and if I will be reheating at work. If I will need to reheat, I will leave the shell on. If I just boiled them as snacks at home, I usually peel them. Easy access to dip in caesar when the munchies hit.

I keep them in the shells and put them in a plastic container. I tried storing them in a bowl in the fridge, but it seemed to dry them out.

And it stinks up the whole fridge. LOL.
Putting them in a container works best for me. Keeps the egg smell inside the container and not all over my food.

I store them in a container with some water. Don't know what the best way is... maybe we should consult with Heloise...

...hopefully I'm not the only person who knows those books or I'm gonna look like a big old nerdy housewife

You know that's not a bad idea! Does the egg smell still dissipate into the fridge, or does the water keep it in?

In a covered container with water, I never smell the eggs. Most times I just cover them completely in water. They don't get dried out- or hard like they some times do when i leave them in the fridge in the shell. It's like the pre-boiled eggs they sell at the store... they have them packed in water or a solution I think... never bought them before LOL I think I can manage boiling eggs!

How long do you want to keep them around. If you are stocking up for the next millenium, I would recommend the "Thousand year old egg" technique (Century egg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Storage time: In the shell, hard-cooked eggs can be refrigerated safely up to one week. Refrigerate in their original carton to prevent odor absorption. Once peeled, eggs should be eaten that day.

Sometimes after I finish off a jar of dill pickles, I hardboil some eggs, peel them and store them in the pickle juice in the fridge. Yummy

That fact alone should convince you that keeping your hard boiled eggs for a at most a week in the fridge is a smart rule.
