Two eggs were in a frying pan, first egg - hello there, second egg – ahhh a talking egg.
Alright! The ever so mysterious boiled egg! We’ve talked about how to boil them properly
in a previous How To Video, but how do you peel them? It’s not really that hard but
everybody seems to have issues so today I’m going to test out five different ways to peel
a boiled egg and tell you which one works best. And actually I’m only going to test
four, I’m going to show you the way I usually do it and then we will test four in addition
So first off, the way I usually do it is by rolling, and I tap it and roll it. Usually
I do this right when I boil them but these have all been in the fridge for about a day.
Roll it and then the skin of the shell comes off pretty easily. Alright, there we go, that
wasn’t terrible. So that is how I usually peel a boiled egg and it’s always worked
for me just fine. So we are going to compare the other ways to this.
So ultimate reading for my original way to peel an egg by just rolling it, and I would
say would be an A, because it always works for me.
Why can’t you tease egg whites? Why? Because they can’t take a yolk.
The first test will be similar to the way I usually do it, you roll it out but then
you are supposed to peel it while submerged in cold water. So cold water here we go, roll
it out, a light roll and then into the water it goes. Peel it while submerged, now is it
making it any easier, yeah actually maybe it is. Think I need to test it one more time
to be sure. I think that may have been easier, I think this one is probably just not very
well boiled. That was very easy, and now it’s all clean and shell less, I’m going to save
this ultimate rating as an A.
How do monsters like their eggs? How? Terrorfried.
The next hack, the web sites claim you are supposed to tap both ends and remove the shell
and then be able to put the spoon in there to scoop it out. Let’s see if it works.
And peel it off and spoon underneath, it’s not going. Like there it goes, oh actually
that worked pretty good. Alright, it works but is it easier, I’m going to give it a
How did the egg get up the mountain? How? It scrambled up.
This is the one I’m the most skeptical about. You are supposed to, as we did before, tap
both ends and remove them and then blow, yes blow, with your mouth and the egg is supposed
to pop on out. Tap, I am already anticipating this is going to not work so we’ll see.
And then…this doesn’t seem to be working, Tim Ferriss. I’m going to say F. Now we’ll
be fair, we’ll test it one more time, maybe it was a faulty egg. I’m not even going
to bother blowing it this time, I’m just going to try and push it out with my thumb.
If you’ve ever done this trick and you know how it works, come and blow, because I must
be doing it wrong. I did read that it takes some time to master but why would you ever
want to master this trick. Alright Timothy, you can write good books but do you know the
egg hack tricks, I don’t think so. Ultimate reading F minus.
What did Snow White call her chicken? What? Egg white.
The final hack is using a jar, you can also use from what I’ve read a sauce pan or a
bowl with a plate on top but I’m using a jar because it’s easier. You are going to
fill it with a little bit of water and the way it’s supposed to work is you put the
egg inside and you cover it up and you shake it. Shake, shake, shake…shake, shake, shake,
shake your egg up. You are supposed to be able to just rinse the shell off. Oh wow,
look at that, it just came right off. I didn’t think that was going to work, let’s do it
again. Egg into the jar, shake, shake, shake vigorously for just a few seconds. It came
out again, not quite as easily as last time, maybe I didn’t shake it as long. Alright
that’s inconsistent let’s try one more. Oh wow, look, look, oh my gosh, the shells
off of it. That’s amazing, I just didn’t do it vigorously enough, it’s completely
peeled. Ultimate rating A plus. I really didn’t think that one was going to work at all that’s
why I saved it for last and it ended up working the best.
So this is the way I am always going to peel an egg now, well if it requires a few more
materials, but it’s pretty sweet and it takes the whole shell off. If you have any
other home hacks that you want me to test out or if you have anything you need to hack
more, comment below and let me know.
What happens when you tell an egg a joke? What? It cracks up.
