How to Separate Egg Whites and Yolks

The Ingenious Hack For Separating Egg Yolks and Whites Using a Water Bottle

If you cringe a little every time a recipe calls for separating egg whites and yolks, this hack will make the process way easier for you. All you need is an empty water bottle, and you'll be on your way to removing the yolks straight from the whites after cracking all the eggs in a bowl. The mouth of the water bottle acts as suction to scoop up egg yolks in a mess-free manner. You'll never have to struggle with cracking the egg and manually separating the whites over a bowl again. We've demonstrated how to execute the process in the following video, which is part of our recipe for unicorn-poop-inspired meringues (yes, you read that right). Take a look at the egg-separating hack below, and don't forget to use your leftover egg yolks in a number of ways.
