Separating eggs is, admittedly, a thankless task, which is probably why there are so many egg separating hacks, along with a sizable collection of egg separators available for purchase. Some are purely utilitarian though most would fall into the novelty category, like this fish-shaped egg separator. Of all these egg separators out there, the Mr. Sniffles Egg Separator has got to be the grossest way to separate eggs on the market. (There are a couple different versions of the same basic tool out there, for the record. There's a similar version called the Bogeyman Egg Separator that seems to only be available in the United Kingdom.)
Either way, it's a porcelain mug that's shaped like a man's face. You crack an egg into it, and the egg white drips out of the dude's reddened nose like snot. The yolk, meanwhile, stays stuck in the porcelain man's cranium and can be dumped out of the top.
It's gross, full stop. But does it work? Sure. The tool even appeared on an episode of The Great British Bakeoff: Extra Slice, which means it's got to be at least a little bit legit (but not legit enough to make it onto the main show, for what it's worth).
Is it efficient? Not exactly. It takes this woman about a minute to crack and separate the egg, a task that could be accomplished in a matter of seconds if you were using both your hands. But what the Mr. Sniffles Egg Separator lacks in ease of use, it makes up for with a disgusting visual.
As German YouTuber DerTestMichel demonstrates, though, the Bogey Man Egg Separator really shines when you're trying to separate two eggs at the same time.
Maybe this tool is meant for kids, who don't yet have the manual dexterity to crack an egg. Or maybe it's meant for cool dads to make dad jokes about snotty kids. Either way, this egg separator will probably give you nightmares, and it's available for purchase on Amazon for a cool $14.95, eggs not included.
