Kitchen conundrum finally cracked...<br />
<br />
Entrepreneur Hamish Dobbie has come up with something worth getting egg-cited about - after cracking the age-old problem of separating yolks from the white.<br />
<br />
The YOLKR finally put's paid to the laborious, messy process of transferring golden yolks back and forward between egg shell halves.<br />
<br />
The clever contraption acts like an enormous pipette, slurping up the egg yolk before plopping it back out in one piece.<br />
<br />
It promises to be a must-have tool for recipes calling for yolks to be separated from whites including meringue, mousse, souffle and creme brulee.<br />
<br />
Mechanical engineer Hamish came up with the idea after watching a friend painstakingly trying to split eggs to make an omelette - and failing - in August 2012.<br />
<br />
Ten months later the food-safe plastic YOLKR is in production and set to fly off the shelves at £18 a go.
