Eggs are one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods around.  Although it is easy and quick to prepare, these egg hacks will even make it quicker. We bet you do not know some of these hacks.


Peel a hard-boiled egg in 10 seconds without even touching it

Fill a shallow, plastic container halfway with cold water. Place your hard-boiled egg in the container, seal it and then shake it vigorously for about 10 seconds. The shells will fall off like a pack of cards.

Sink egg in a glass of water to determine if it is still fresh

Spoiled eggs float and fresh eggs will sink to the bottom of the glass. Just carefully sink an egg in a glass of water. If it goes straight to the bottom, it means the egg is fresh. However, if the egg floats, it means it is not good anymore.

Pick broken eggshells with another

If a shell drop in your egg plate,  it may take some time to pick it.  To save time, you can just use a large piece of an eggshell you just peeled to scoop up any broken pieces that escape into your bowl. The shell will attract the pieces like a magnet!

Baking Soda in water to make peeling easier

Adding a teaspoon of baking soda to the cooking water increases the alkalinity, which will make the eggs easier to peel once they are cooked.  This simple trick will also save you a lot of time.
Slice hard-boiled eggs

Cut right through the egg with a knife, then remove the shell. It’s definitely faster.
