Kitchen HACK: Get Egg Shell out of the Bowl EASILY With This Clever Trick


There's nothing more frustrating than cracking that last egg and dropping a shard of the shell into your perfect batter... But this trick makes fishing it out EASY!

Whether you're an egg-cracking novice or one of those pros who can break two at once, shell happens. It's just unavoidable sometimes not to break off a little shard, depending on how you empty out the egg or simply how the shell happened to crack when you broke it.

You can't just bake the shell, of course, so then comes the dreaded next out the little bits from your otherwise perfect batter. It can be so frustrating, and if the shell is especially slippery it can waste so much time!

But there's a super easy way to avoid all that hassle.

Instead of digging around the egg goop and trying to pinch onto the little shell, simply wet your finger. Then place your finger in the egg right next to the piece of shell.

Instead of darting away like it normally does at the slighest movement, it will gravitate right towards you! Plucking it out and throwing it away then becomes a cinch.
