Store-bought eggs, no swirling. No vinegar. Drop the egg into a simmering pot of water. The egg will drop the temperature. Let it come back to a simmer and adjust the heat to keep it simmering. Take it out when the writes and yolk are at your preferred density.
A chef so used to work with would crack the egg into a ramekin the dip the ramekin to take in a bit of hot water. Wait a couple seconds to allow the whites to set, then pour the egg into the barely simmering water. The thing with his method is if you're not using a non-stick pot, it also keeps the egg from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
