3. Peleg YolkFish Silicone Egg Separator

Okay, so a gadget that just separates the egg yolks from the egg whites might feel like overkill, but hear us out. Sure, you could just gently pour the egg yolk between the cracked shells to separate, but that can easily lead to a broken yolk. And okay, yeah, you can separate eggs using your hands, but come on, that's messy, and hello? Ever heard of salmonella? The beauty of the Peleg YolkFish egg separator is that it eliminates the need to touch raw eggs, it's mess-free, and most importantly, it's a fun, cute little tool that will make you smile while you prepare your egg white omelet. 

Simply crack a whole egg into a bowl, pinch the YolkFish to create suction, and use the YolkFish's big fishy lips to gently pick up the yolk without breaking it.

5. Prep Solutions Microwave Poach Perfect

Making a perfect poached egg is notoriously difficult. You have to crack your eggs right into boiling water, vinegar is involved, and you have to scoop them out just at the right time but without breaking the delicate, soft yolk. Or you could buy the Prep Solutions Microwave Poach Perfect and have anywhere from one to four poached eggs (depending on the size you purchase) in a matter of seconds. Kinda seems like a no brainer!

If you've ever spent more time than you really wanted to peeling a stubborn egg whose shell just won't come off, then you know the particular heartache that this little cup can help you avoid.

How does the Negg Egg Peeler work? It's science, but it seems like magic. You simply add a little water to the cup, add your hard-boiled egg, and shake until the shell cracks.

Also, it might not work as well for soft-boiled eggs, as shaking them around can also break the yolk.

The timing is actually pretty precise depending if you want your egg boiled soft, medium, or fully hard.

You simply place these little guys in a pot of boiling water, perforated side down.
