I wanted a quick, mess-free way to crack eggs without banging them on pans and having egg whites running down the sides - or having to fish out tiny egg shell pieces from the eggs in the pan... this was not the solution. Based on reviews of other products, this seemed like the best option. Unfortunately, when I use this, I do not get a clean, precise cut - I get a jagged crack/cut and about one out of 3 eggs will drop a small piece of shell in the pan. Also, there is a small amount of egg white that runs down the blade and sits in the bottom of the device every time, so I also have to clean up every time, which I was not expecting to have to do. I had better luck just using a sharp-edged pan. Maybe the razor blade is defective in my unit (not likely), but for now, I don't see "the perfect egg cracker" out there yet. Better to stick with the edge of your frying pan for now.
P.S. - I'm open to recommendations if anyone has found something that leaves no mess,...
I have a 11 year old who is severely mentally retarded. He loves to cook, but cracking an egg proves to be difficult for him to master. I bought this egg cracker so that he can learn to crack an egg. I looked on Amazon for various egg crackers and find this one to make the most sense, so I gave it a try.
It worked! After a few initial failed attempts (hit too gentle and the egg didn't crack, hit too hard and it totally fell apart), my son is cracking eggs reasonably well such that I can let him do the cracking all by himself. So now when I need to make scrambled eggs, I just call my son over and he takes care of the cracking. Very nice to see him gain another skill!
My 6 year old with normal IQ has no trouble learning to use this egg cracker to crack eggs.
Now me, I've never had trouble cracking eggs, but now that I have this gadget, I never crack an egg without it! It does crack it much nicer. I do a lot of cooking and use it daily. You always need...
I've been an Amazon customer for years and relied on the reviews to make my decisions. This is my first contribution and I chose "The Egg Cracker" because it works.
It looks like a toy but it's not. You should keep it away from kids because it has an exposed razor blade.
The trick is to give it an eighth to a quarter turn and crack the shell a second time. Then you can gently pull the halves apart. I'm able to drop egg whites right on to the frying pan and discard the yolk in the shell.
When you do it gently, there's no pieces of shell in the egg. And if you're just getting used to it and break the shell, the pieces are big enough to lift out.
I can't go back to the butter knife method.
I thought the price was a little much for a piece of plastic, but it pays for itself in the aggravation you save.
Clean up, obviously, is a rinse and a wipe, and, of course, be careful, because it's a razor blade.
