That's pretty funny,but it gets into the "unnecessry step" territory. It is a good party trick, though.

Love it! I'm gonna try it with a bunch of cracked eggs to see if I can suck up individual yolks and leave behind an entire bowl of whites!

Thanks!

It may not work with an older egg, or an egg from an older hen. I have chickens that are 3 years old now, and their yolks are quite weak and break easily. In the video that is a VERY fresh egg, but I'll still have to give it a try.

Cool party trick, saves doing in in your hands!! icon_lol.gif

My boyfriend saw the video and he thought it was a neat trick too. He is usually bored by these kinds of things. We were both wondering if all bottles would work. I know recently, some plastic bottles have gotten thinner.

That is so cool. Frankly, I just crack mine into a bowl and reach in and grab the yolk out.

hbquikcomjamesl Posted 24 Aug 2012 , 5:35pm

I usually use a hybrid of the shell and bare-hand ("Alton Brown") methods, myself.

I would imagine that the success of this method is directly proportional to both the freshness of the egg and the smoothness of the mouth of the bottle: I would think that even the slightest bur on the mouth of the bottle, barely enough to feel, would rupture a weak yolk membrane. And my understanding (and experience) is that the yolk membranes of the pasteurized eggs I use are unusually delicate.

This may work best on smaller eggs.

I personally buy extra large eggs and assume that I would not get this clean separation.

But I have no trouble separating COLD eggs that can then be left to warm up for baking.
