How do YOU crack eggs?
I have small hands and no tricks. I'm concerned about cross contamination. Before I start cracking eggs, I pull the garbage pail over and uncover it. Then I hold an egg in one hand, rap it on a sharpish edge, usually the rim of the bowl, then use two hands, thumbs to the crack line, to open it. I do occasionally get a drip down the bowl, or get my thumb into the egg badly enough to wash before the next egg, but most of the time it works fine. I separate old style, moving the yolk back and forth between shell halves, and letting the white run off. If the shells are too thin, or I have dozens to do, I use an spoon style egg separater. I never gave it detailed thought before I saw this on Pinterest. Methinks Rube Goldberg was involved...
- Get the eggs ready and take out the egg opener.
- Put the eggs into the product and hold the eggs firmly.
- Hold the handle tightly, automatically open the egg and separate it.
- Sow and shake gently to drain the egg.
- Take out the shell.
