Chinese DIY site Jifenzhong has uploaded a video showing a nifty little trick for separating an egg yolk using only an empty plastic water bottle.

Check the video after the jump.

We have no idea what the host is saying, but it’s pretty easy to understand what’s going on in the video even if you don’t know Chinese. Crack an egg on a plate and suck up the yolk into an empty plastic bottle by squeezing it. It’s so simple.

Anyone got the huevos to try it?
