    Very cool. I shall remember this.

  2. I already have – not worth the hassle. Filtering with fingers is far more reliable and convenient.

  3. Paul Pearson says:

    Learned it years ago, did short-order cooking as a sideline job. 1999, I think.

  4. Guy Flaneur says:

    This method has been around for years. I’ve tried it but it’s only worth the effort if you have a dozen eggs to separate for a dish.

  5. Stephen says:

    you can only do it with really fresh eggs, see how the yolk stands proud of the white, that doesn’t happen with supermarket eggs as they are much too old. But it’s a great method for fresh eggs.

  6. Lazy T says:

    That’s one way to do it, I usually build myself a contraption out of lego.

  7. I’ve done this a few times, and I typically break one yolk for every three that I can remove. With that being said, it’s far easier just to buy egg whites in the carton.

    I use the finger method, but can’t wait to try this!

    Useful and reliable or not, this is cool! Great idea, anyway…

    I’m far more likely to have old eggs than soda bottles in the house, so I think I’ll stick with just doing it in the shell.

  12. The problem with doing it in the shell – I think people forget where eggs come from (:P)

    Wow! Looks way easier than the way I usually do it. Can’t wait to give this a try!

    I’m definitely going to try it.

    This week’s Friday puzzle is so tedious I can’t even be bothered to solve it, let alone post a spoiler.
    Sorry, all you self righteous Dudley Doorights – you will have to find something else to pontificate about.
