Now thats amazing, going to find a plastic bottle and try it now. Thanks Panfusine, that is so cool!!
I tried it, the first yolk broke but I think it was my fault had to get used to the squeeze technique with the bottle the second one worked like a charm, yolk intact both times removing from white of egg and putting it back. Great hack!!

Seriously. If you are going to the trouble of putting the whole egg into a separate bowl like that, you can simply put your three middle fingers gently under the yolk, with the fingers about 1/4 inch apart, and lift the yolk out! Much quicker, and you don't need a plastic bottle (something I generally don't have on hand). It works best in a smaller bowl, so there's more white under the yolk. Try it! (I did not make this up. It's a traditional method that's been used by cooks in France -- and elsewhere no doubt -- for generations, if not centuries.) ;o)

Wow, that is very cool. Stunt eggs! However, I tend to agree with AntoniaJames. To separate eggs I've always simply let the white slide off between my fingers (just like my mother showed me) - far less cinematic impact, but it works just fine.
I agree Antonia but you got to admit that is pretty cool
So cool!! I'm getting up from the couch & trying it right now!!
