Yes, I know there are gadgets and I use the shell it can in to separate mine, and have seen people use their bare hands, but this is awesome!

That's pretty cool! I usually use my hands because its quick and easy and there is nothing to clean after, but I will at least try this out for fun... even if it's not practical for bulk use. I often have to separate 10+ dozen eggs at a whack.

Well, I tried it! On cold eggs, it worked perfectly and beautifully! I cracked 6 in a bowl, then slurped up the yolks like magicicon_smile.gif Then I tried it on some room temperature ones and after 4, I broke one! So then I tossed the yolks back in for a regular recipe, and broke 6 more the regular way. I was making a meringue, so I couldn't have the yolk in there like that. But it was fun! Lol

I think it's usually suggested to separate eggs when they are cold, so it makes sense that it did better with the cold eggs.

I tried it too! It was fun and funny - my niece begged me to try it too (she's 8 years old). But I wouldn't do it on a regular basis, I broke 1 and 2 worked out. It's more Bill Nye the Science Guy or Alton Brown info-tainment. But still cool!

I tried it its a cool idea but, it isnt something I would adapt into my way of baking. I find it completely unnecessary. If people are doing it because they have a hard time seperating eggs than you should be practicing doing it the "normal way" just my opinion

Oh, I agree that it isn't anything I would do on a regular basis, but I just had to try it, and I was fun! My kids were totally into iticon_smile.gif i also have no problems separaring eggs the old fasioned way, whatsoever. But I think that if someone did want to do it this way, for whatever reason, more power to them! If I could get it to work every time, I would totally do it! It's so much faster busting 12 eggs for scrambled eggs than it is to separate eggs for a lemon meringue pie icon_smile.gif
