What does it mean when a hard boiled egg floats in water?


1 Answer

This means the egg is older, but it should be perfectly safe to use. Eggs have an air cell that becomes larger as the egg ages and acts as a buoyancy aid. An egg can float in water when its air cell has enlarged sufficiently to keep it buoyant.
