You may already be used to separating eggs by simply using your hand, or by transferring the yolk between two halves of the shell. You might have also used tools such as a slotted spoon or an egg separator. It's true that there are many ways to separate eggs, but none like this technique!

First, you have to find an empty plastic bottle (just make sure you clean it out first!). Crack an egg into a bowl. Then gently squeeze the bottle and hold it over the yolk. The bottle will suck up the yolk, leaving the egg white in the bowl.

You can transfer the yolk to a separate bowl and repeat with as many eggs as your recipe requires. This technique is especially useful when you have to separate a large number of eggs, as it cuts down the prep time you have to do significantly!
