The Easiest Way Ever to Separate Egg Yolks

Without getting your fingers all gooey

There’s nothing more satisfying than cracking an egg and carefully passing the yolk back and forth to separate it until…wait a sec, is that a shell? Ugh.

Stop fishing around in the bowl with your fingers and try this foolproof way to separate egg yolks every single time.

Step 1: Crack an egg into a bowl.

Step 2: Gently squeeze a clean, empty water bottle with the lid off. Tip it upside down and place the opening of the bottle over the yolk of the egg.

Step 3: Release your grip on the water bottle, allowing the yolk to suck up into the bottle.

Step 4: Squeeze the yolk into an empty bowl.

Step 5: It’s egg-white-omelet time.
