The first look at the Incredible makes you wonder what was wrong with the person who dreamed this up. The Incredible 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 Incredible with separator performed perfectly. About the only criticism we have for the Incredible 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 Incredible might be a little overkill for when you need to crack just one egg. But if you want shell-free eggs every time or you have mass cracking you need to do, it is awesome. Incredible you can say goodbye to the mess and bits of eggshell in your food! The Incredible 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!
