A woman has sparked a TikTok meltdown after sharing a remarkably simple way to crack an egg without getting any shells mixed in.
Maddy Sumner was trying a viral cooking hack on her TikTok last month and the video has ended up being seen more than 782,000 times.
The clip shows Maddy dropping an egg onto a hot pan over the hob.
A voiceover says: “Apparently, if you drop an egg into a pan it cracks perfectly.”
When she goes to lift up the egg again, it does appear there are no shells stuck inside and it gets Maddy’s seal of approval with a “wow”.
And plenty of viewers flooded the comments section to voice their approval.

“I’m so going to do this,” one wrote. “I’m trusting you on this one.”
Another commented: “Omg you’re a genius.”
A third said: “From what I understand, cracking an egg on a flat surface is better than an edge. You don’t have to drop it though.”
But not everyone was impressed. Some suggested dropping an egg into hot oil could be dangerous.
And others were more concerned about not washing the egg before dropping it into the pan.
“I’m going to try this but only after I’ve scrubbed the egg clean,” someone else added.
“I’m not keen on chicken juice on my egg.”
Another said: “Yeah but the egg may have chicken s*** on it so make sure to wash it if you do this.”
It is not the only egg hack to have gone viral in recent weeks.
Last month, one trick was dubbed “jaw-dropping” after it managed to separate the yolk from the egg white using just a clove of garlic.
