Egg-Cracker - No more messy egg cracking for you!!


As a person who bakes quite often, I am pathetic at cracking eggs! Seriously, I marvel when I see chefs on TV cracking eggs in a whack without any mess, in fact, with great style! Alas, though I'm a good cook, I'm not a good egg-cracker:) But now I've found this perfect solution to my problem. A kitchen gadget that makes cracking eggs so easy it's like a dream come true. I'm sure many of you must have experienced similar problems while baking. With the recipe book open at one end, and your hand stirring the mixture in the bowl, it's convenient to crack the egg on the rim of the bowl, until you see the egg white dripping from your fingers and some small flecks of shell that conveniently find their way into the batter! You can only sigh and try to remove them with a spoon, creating even more mess than you earlier imagined. So in my quest to be "stress-free" and make my baking a little "mess-free", I found this cute little Egg-cracker which does the job perfectly. I know it's not a great find, but you'll really appreciate it once you start using it and see the results:)

The Egg Cracker from Walter Drake makes cracking eggs for any purpose clean and simple. The gadget is easy to use, compact, cute and extremely easy to clean. and great for kids to help with the cooking! Simply put in the egg in the holder, tap a little, then invert and press - the yolk and whites come out in tact, and the shell is left behind, right where it's supposed to be. Also, it's easier to separate the egg yolk from the whites when it's cracked in such an organised way.

The egg-cracker is Dishwasher safe, and pretty easy to clean. No sharp curves or blades, so it's kid-friendly too; in fact, it's a great way to let your kids help with the cooking! It is small and can be stored anywhere, and fancy enough to look good on your kitchen counter. With all the comfort and convenience, this tiny gadget comes with a price tag of only $6.99!! (from Amazon) Can't beat that one, right? Combine this with any egg-separator and you have the recipe for a perfect dessert. It's simple and efficient, nothing fancy about it, but does it's job well, and that's what makes my life easy. Try it for yourself and see, then come back to share your experiences with us!

Amazing...will order it right away.
Thanks for making life easy.

Also, please suggest where I can find bakeware(cake pan/muffin pan) with NO nonstick coating. I am trying to discard my nonstick baking set for health reasons.

Appreciate your help.

Oh you found the perfect gadget for me!

Julia, Sandy - thanks for your reviews:) really appreciate it!

Isha - I'd recommend cooking.com, but for NO non-stick, it'll be a bit tough as almost everyone uses non-stick these days...but glass bakeware from stores in malls should be fine I think

Cris - glad you liked it, works well for me too:)

That is pretty nifty! I have to say that my son who is almost five can crack eggs almost as good as I can! I'm pretty impressed with him. But this is quite a little gadget! :)

Zen Chef said...

haha...this is a funny gadget!
Being a good egg-cracker requires a certain degree of Zen-ness and focus. Practice makes perfect! hehehe

This is a neat buy Mansi, I sure could use one of these myself. I hate getting a bit of the eggs on my hands when I crack them.

oh what a nice gadget..sometimes its funny to imagine.;that cracking an egg isnt really that complicated..but why we always end up having a hard time doing so..i already tried different techniques as advised by grand chefs..(cracking on flat surfaces, etc) but i still find myself picking up some bits of egg shell on my egg..gotta buy this gadget :-)

Mansi Desai said...

Happy cook said...

It is the first time I am seeing a thing like this.
It was fun to know that there is a tool to crack eggs.
If i see here in a shop i woiuld have bought it.
I have never seen them so guess i will stik to the traditional way of cracking eggs :-)

shriya said...

Wow! This looks amazing. It should be very useful for those bad at cracking eggs like me. I am a very messy person when its comes to cracking eggs.

I think this is a wonderful design for people with certain disabilities. For a person with maybe one arm and still hasn't mastered the one hand crack, this may be the thing to get them back into the kitchen!
