no cost egg separator

My wife found this on face book. I'm always amazed by those who think outside the box.

this is proper cool, David! Thumbs up to the inventor.

BUT - you always need a clean bottle to hand. Which I wouldn't have, as I rarely ever buy bottled water.

I just do it the old-fashioned way, by cracking the shell down the middle and pouring the egg from one half to the other. In fact, the few times I dropped the yolk into the white, I've always managed to scoop it out with a spoon undamaged. If you own a slotted spoon, that's even easier.

Ingenious! I like that, very nifty.

I'm old fashioned too. I just crack the eggs in bowl and scoop the yolks out with my hands, which is even easier than using the shells.

I'm the samel break and open with one hand, and separate through the fingers of the other; it's quick, too!
