The first look at the Your Brand cracker makes you wonder what was wrong with the person who dreamed this up. the Your Brand cracker pushes the egg down onto these blades to crack it. think of the blades as the edge of a bowl. Except the blades make for a very clean break. The egg loads easily. Just place in the rings and crack. It left no shell in the bowl. Cool, but not as cool as using the separator over and over the e-z cracker with separator performed perfectly. About the only criticism we have for the e-z cracker is shelling hard boiled eggs. It works, but not quite as well as it does in the commercials. Still left a little to be peeled. Yeah, the e-z cracker might be a little overkill for when you need to crack just one egg. but if you want shell-less eggs every time or you have mass cracking you need to do, it is awesome. Your Brand cracker you can say goodbye to the mess and bits of eggshell in your food The Your Brand cracker neatly cracks an egg in just one motion. All you need to do is gently place the egg in the holder and squeeze the handle. An attachable egg white separator easily parts the yolk from the whites for cholesterol-conscious non-comers.
