Genius! Check Out This Super-Easy (and Kinda Magical) Egg-Separating Technique

The tool you needed to make the job way simpler and faster has been in your kitchen all along

First, there was the video that showed us how to open a bottle of wine with a shoe. (Magical!) And once again, the all-knowing Internet has provided a demo of a totally simple kitchen trick that will blow your mind-- and change the way you look at eggs forever.

This easy-to-follow instructional video shows how to separate yolks from egg whites by using a basic empty plastic water bottle. Simply crack your egg into a bowl, then place the bottle opening over it, squeezing to scoop up the yolk with almost no effort. Not only is it less messy and more accurate, but it’s way faster too: The video demo shows the process with five eggs in just 52 seconds. Et voila!

OK sure, it may be effective, but is it adorable? Not so much. Well, this is: Peleg Design out of Israel has come up with a similarly functioning product called “Yolkfish,” which is shaped like a goldfish that laps up yolks with its little lips. 

You’ll never approach this ordinary cooking chore the same way again.

What’s your best technique for separating eggs?
