    OK I have not tried this yet, but it sure seems interesting.

    Apparently it works best if you hold the pointy end to your lips when doing the blowing.

    If anyone gives it a go I'd love to hear how it worked for you.

    I suppose it would be OK to do if I was the only one that was going to eat the eggs but I’m not sure how my dinner guests would feel about me spitting all over their deviled eggs.

    Edited to add:

    I will give the pinch of baking soda a try next time.

    That's pretty much how those 'Eggstractors' work [​IMG] We got one at a garage sale one year...... don;t make hardboiled eggs that often though [​IMG]

    I wondered if that is how the eggstracters worked too. I think if you don't want to blow the eggs out you could just use your hands to 'milk' them out of the shell too. Even if you don't is should be easy to get the shell off with just regular peeling after the baking soda if you can blow them out.

    Good stuff!

    Reminds me of a rumor about how the lady at A&W used to make their hamburger patties. Allegedly, she would get a ball of hamburger & put it under her armpit them squeeze... thus making a patty... [​IMG] I think that was just to convince us that we needed to eat at home but I may be wrong.
