    I thought this was an awesome way to separate egg yolks. I always break the yolk and make a mess when trying to do it by hand.

    Pretty neat. Never to old learn something new. I usually use the halves of the shell to separate the yolk but will give this a shot. Does everyone know how to get a piece of egg shell out of the white? By using one of the halves on the shell instead of spoons or knives or fingers and/or nails. Sooooo much easier.

    I always did the egg halves as well until I figured this method out.

    My grandmotehr taught me to do it with the two halves of the shell. I find the easiest and best to just use my bare hands. The water bottle idea is totally cool though and great for those who don't want to get messy or can't because you have a zillion things going at once.
