Can you crack an egg consistently?

When you are cooking or baking can you consistently crack an egg without getting any of the shell in what you're making?

  • I can. My grandpa taught me the trick to cracking an egg one handed when I was a kid. It's one of my few talents. =)

  • Nope. I usually end up picking out the pieces with a spoon. I've heard that you shouldn't use the egg shell to get the pieces out because salmonella lives on the outside of the shell, not inside, and you can wind up contaminating your dish.

  • Yep. Never crack the egg on the edge of the bowl or the skillet, always on a flat surface. When you crack it on the edge of the bowl or skillet, it pushes tiny pieces up into the egg and it ends up in the bowl and sometimes breaks the yolk.
