Eggs are one of nature’s indisputable superfoods. Delicious and versatile, they’re little gems of happiness. Unfortunately, cracking eggs can be a messy affair, especially for those of us who lack the dexterity of a baker. For many, the process ends with egg whites on counter tops, shell pieces in cookie dough, and sticky hands fumbling for paper towels.
Dave Tennant, a Marine Veteran of 8 years, student at the University of Maryland, and clumsy kitchen novice experienced an epic egg cracking failure while cooking breakfast for his pregnant wife in May 2013. Like any good husband, he pushed through the adversity, cracking eggs until every single one had been eliminated. After delivering a fluffy twelve-egg omelet to his wife, Dave set to work on the Crack’em. It took a year of design, research, and prototyping to finalize the Crack’em, but it was worth the wait.
The Crack’em is an egg-cracking tray that employs a single raised edge to perfectly crack eggs. It breaks the egg shell cleanly and conveniently captures any drips that might otherwise end up on a counter top, or stove. It’s unmatched at cracking eggs and doubles as a spoon rest. It’s durable and dishwasher safe.
What I think:
I used this product when making my triple fudge brownies, I found it to be very helpful when the time came to crack my egg’s. Using the product was easy and clean up was a breeze. I was able to easily crack my egg and drop it in my bowl without any excess shells. The worst part about cracking eggs has always been the pesky shells that like to make their way into the bowl. This product worked so well my 5 year old was able to help me crack eggs. That’s amazing since shes still new to cooking and tends to not know when to control her strength when breaking eggs and mixing bowls.
