    The side of the skillet works just fine for me...

    Wow! Remember the egg cracker in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? [​IMG]

    It looks like a great idea, but watch out on the shipping on those ads.

    Sham Wow was so awful, I had to cancel my credit card to get them to cancel my order.

    With ducks eggs, I always crack them into a bowl first so I can pick out any shells. When my hands are hurting, I use the back of a table knife to crack them.

    I was cracking goose eggs today for a stovetop cheesy goose egg casserole and wow, I forget from season to season how tough those shells are!!!

    I almost got my iron skillet to whack it open....[​IMG]

    Happy New Years!

    I use a cool quail egg cutter for my quail eggs but it is more like a cigar cutter than the thing you posted. Maybe they have a bigger version for large eggs as that devise looks like it would make more of a mess than help.

    Bet that scrambeler thing would help for blowing eggs.
