I cannot account for your failures, I'm afraid. All I know is that steaming works great for me, and I cook a lot of very fresh, previously-hard-to-peel eggs with this method. I think others have clarified the science behind why it works and it pretty much dovetails with my personal experience.

I hope you find a solution, because peeling a batch of sulky eggs is not a fun way to spend your time!
