IT can be more than a bit frustrating when you crack an egg and end up with a load of shell in the pan.
But one TikTok user has shared the easiest hack for egg-cracking, and it literally couldn’t be any more simple.
Inky, real name Scotty, took to the site to post a clip of himself testing out the trick, which involves dropping an egg directly into a pan from a height.
“Apparently if you drop an egg into a pan it’ll crack perfectly,” a voiceover began on his video, which showed someone else demonstrating the hack.
Then it was Inky’s turn to try the method.
He stood back from the cooker, held the egg at just below shoulder height, and dropped it into his frying pan.
He then took a closer look at the results, and gasped as he saw that it had worked.
“No fudgein way! It worked! Get this viral!” he wrote.
After dropping the egg, he removed the shell – which had broken perfectly in half – without any remnants being left in the pan.
The video was quickly met with astonished comments from viewers, many of whom said they were planning to try it out themselves.
“Wtf, I crack an egg and I’m having to pick out shell. I’m off to try this now!” one person wrote.
While another added: “Not gonna lie, you’ve changed my life.”
“You’re welcome!” Inky cheekily replied.
