How to separate eggs

There's more than one way to separate eggs! Watch our video to see how to separate eggs no less than four different ways.


Method 1 - With the shell

Crack the egg open carefully so you don't break the yolk. Working over a bowl, gently transfer the yolk back and forth between the two shell halves, letting the white fall into the bowl below. Once the yolk is separated, transfer it to a second bowl.

Method 2 - With your hand

Crack the egg open as before. With your free hand placed over a bowl, let the entire egg fall into your hand. Open your fingers slightly so that the white can pass through to the bowl. Once the yolk is separated, place in a second bowl.

Method 3 - With a funnel

Crack open the egg and empty into a funnel placed over a bowl. Gently shake the funnel until all of the egg white goes into the bowl below, then transfer the yolk to another bowl.

Method 4 - With a bottle

Crack the egg into a bowl. Using an empty plastic bottle, squeeze the bottle and place the opening over the yolk. Gently open your hand to release some pressure from the bottle; the yolk will rise up into the bottle. Transfer the yolk to a second bowl by releasing all pressure from the bottle.
