Eggs on a cutting board
You Probably Never Thought Of This Better Way To Crack Eggs
To crack an egg, you can strike it against the edge of your bowl or tap it on a flat surface, but the best way is the drop method.
When an egg is dropped from a small height onto a flat, hard, and clean surface, its weight and force of gravity will crack the shell evenly on impact.
Take an egg, hold it up about six inches above the surface horizontally, and let it drop. Then, pick up the egg and press your thumbs onto the dent to release it.
This egg drop technique is the perfect egg-cracking hack for a clean split that reduces the likelihood of shell fragments breaking off and landing in your bowl.
