Live (or cooked) lobsters are packed in a sturdy shipping box with ice to keep them cool during shipping
Keep live lobsters refrigerated until you cook them. Don't put them in water. If kept cool they can be stored for up to 24 hours
Be sure the pot you use is large enough to easily accommodate and fully cover the lobster.
Lobsters should be cooked in salted fresh water. Use 4 tablespoons (50ml) of salt per 1 gallon (4 L) of fresh water.
Fill the pot with enough water to cover the lobster and bring to a boil.
Grasp the lobster firmly by the back, just behind the claws, and plunge headfirst into boiling water. Cover and bring water back to a boil and then begin timing.
Remove the bands from the claws.

An antenna will easily pull free when the lobster is cooked. Drain lobster and serve hot.
If not being eaten right away, super chill the lobster in ice water for at least 30 minutes to stop the cooking process.
