This egg separator from Pampered Chef makes short work of separating a quantity of eggs.

When you have a lot of eggs that you need to separate, there's nothing quite like a simple egg separator.

Every year during the holidays, I make George Washington's Eggnog. It calls for separating a dozen eggs. I used to use the pour-the-egg-from-shell-half-to-the-other-shell-half to separate them, but that was always a little bit of a PITA. If you're separating one or two eggs, it's no big deal, but for more than that I really wanted a more efficient method.

I tried my mother-in-law's method of just using my hands and fingers, but I couldn't get the hang of it. I kept breaking the yolks.

I recalled that my own mother had always had this weird-looking gadget in her kitchen drawer that I understood to be an egg separator, and I decided I needed one.

I ordered the Pampered Chef Egg Separator from Amazon. It looks just my mother's, except newer and shinier. And hers doesn't have the handy little clip in the handle that lets you hang it on the edge of the bowl while you crack the eggs.

You just hang the thing on the bowl, crack the egg, gently slide the whole egg, both yolk and white, into the separator, and it does its thing. Very shortly, you'll have the white in the bowl and the yolk in the separator. Then you transfer the yolk to wherever you're putting your yolks.

I've never used any other type of egg separator, so I can't compare this one to other types. But I can say that most of the other ones available either look like cheap plastic or are pretty expensive. I have to admit I was partial to this one because it's like my mother's.

In case you're interested, here is the recipe for George Washington's Eggnog. I always thought I didn't like eggnog. It just turns out that I didn't like that crap they sell in cartons at the grocery store. This stuff is ..... seriously divine. But be careful not to overdo it. It's also seriously full of alcohol.

George Washington's Eggnog

  • 1 quart cream
  • 1 quart whole milk
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1 dozen tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 pint brandy (2 Cups)
  • 1 cup rye whiskey
  • 1 cup Jamaica rum (use Myers)
  • 1/2 cup sherry

Mix the liquor first, then separate eggs and add sugar to the yolks while beating them. Mix well.

Then add the liquor mixture, drop by drop at first while slowly beating (this should take a while).

Add the milk and cream as you continue to slowly beat the mixture.

Beat the eggwhites until stiff and fold slowly into the mixture.

After chilling, serve with freshly ground nutmeg.

You'll notice that this eggnog is the correct color, instead of a sickening yellow shade, and (if it lasts that long) you might notice that the flavors tend to mellow and get even better after a couple of days. Mmmm.

If nothing else, this recipe is guaranteed to produce a genial host.
