Separating Eggs

When I get home from morning practice I’m always hungry. I’m a picky breakfast eater though, so I wanted something other than cereal. My Mom suggested pancakes, but I said no, they’re too much work. After a couple of minutes I grabbed the cookbook and got started. Our favorite recipe makes very good fluffy pancakes. To get them fluffy you separate the eggs and beat up the egg whites, folding them in right before you cook them. I’m not overly confident in my ability to separate eggs just using the egg shell so I used our egg separator. Fast forward about 30 min and everybody is sitting down at the table eating my nice fluffy pancakes.

And the point in all this? I wanted to show you some egg separators. Yes, a weird thing to post on, but I thought it’d be fun.

We have a plain egg separator very similar to this one:

Now while that one is very functional, I personally prefer this cute little chick:

I also found these that are very similar to ours, just cuter!
Or if you want something that is more functional than cute, try these:

Similar to the concept of the separator above, you can use a water bottle to separate eggs. This is a simple and very cheap way. Here they show you how.

I hope you enjoyed looking at some of the cool egg separators out there. Happy Cooking!
