    Using a knife works much better for me. You have to give it a firm whack though. Eggshells are usually the result of someone pussy-footing around with timid little taps.

If there's eggshells in my food I can't tell, and that's good enough for me.

    Also, great thread, will give it five stars.
    Yeah, this is me, although I have other problems when I fry eggs, which are somewhat inexplicable

    Yolk doesn't cook properly?
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    Use a really sharp knife and make a nice clean crack, then just use your thumbs to open it.

    Hand saw.

    Nah, I use the thumbs myself, crack on the edge of the bowl/pan and then the thumbs do the rest.

    Would have caused some confusion in the future for CDM had Marcuss not corrected this.

    Always do it over the sink. If you **** it up over the stove it takes hours to clean.
