WATERLOO (KWWL) -- They are the products that claim to do everything, but sometimes come up short. Our Does It Really Work segment is back, this time testing the EZ Cracker.

For those who have trouble cracking eggs, there's a product that claims to solve your problems. No more mess and no more egg shells in your food. The EZ Cracker claims to crack eggs perfectly every time.

When KWWL reporter John Wilmer took the EZ Cracker home to test it out, it worked as advertised, every egg cracked perfectly. Even the special egg separator attachment worked flawlessly. 

But, cracking a few eggs at home is much different than cracking more than a hundred eggs a day, like they do at Scratch Cupcakery in Cedar Falls. 

Baker Jill Munson was a little apprehensive about the EZ CRACKER from the start.

Munson was able to crack the egg successfully, but then noted she had to manually pull the shell out of the EZ Cracker and dispose of it.

When she tried to use the egg separator things didn't exactly go as planned. The part of the EZ Cracker designed to catch the yolk while the egg white falls into the bowl instead caught both the yolk and egg white and nothing fell into the bowl.

In the end Munson didn't find the EZ Cracker all that helpful.

"I mean it works if you're trying to get the egg out of there. If you try to separate the egg it doesn't work. I don't think it's any more efficient or any faster than by just doing it by hand," Munson said.

The EZ Cracker gets a "B." For the most part it lives up to the claims made in its commercial, but it isn't very practical.
