Whether you're making a meringue, custard, or just looking for an egg white omelet, it’s important to separate your eggs cleanly in order to achieve the best final result. We tried all the most popular hacks and found the best ones, so you don't have to. 

P.S. - The fresher the egg, the better. We source ours locally from Baffoni's Poultry Farm — you can find them on our menu too!
1. The Finger Strainer: 

Option one, The Finger Strainer...it works well just make sure you wash your hands before and after!9


2. The Skimmer: Didn't work for us. The white had a hard time getting through the strainer, so it will a little too intact still. Plus, it'll leave you with something to clean.


3. The Water Bottle: This worked surprisingly well. It's my personal favorite — it makes a great party trick and is the least messy.



4. Shell to Shell: Option four, Shell to Shell — Cool move, unless the shell doesn’t crack well...then it's just messy and time-consuming.


5. Garlic Fingers: Another one that worked unexpectedly well. You should try this one just for fun.
