No, it doesn’t.

This thing doesn’t open eggs, it just causes the first crack that let’s you peel them.

Which is why the word broadly translates to egg(planned)crackmaker.

The term is intentionally over the top technical as a joke.

I know, I was making a joke about ridiculous German compound words.

The exact same item is actually marketed in English as an "Eggshell Topper Cutter Remover."

It actually does open them. Its meant for opening soft boiled aka minute eggs, not hard boiled.

Nope. Both the word and the design will tell you that you’re wrong.

You put the egg under the “hat” at the bottom, then lift the sphere above the “hat” up to the end of the rod and let it go. When it hits the egg it will create a small break in the shell of the egg.

Lol which is exactly what tells you i am correct.

The egg in question will be sitting in a little cup to hold it upright. This tool gives a nice clean hole with minimal risk of getting bits of shell in the soft egg innards. Its just heing used wrong by a large enough percent of people that you get silly crap like you're thinking

"Ive never seen this tool in use" would have saved you some typing there

You mean like this?

It breaks the shell and then you can peel off the top. Cya

As you post a vid of it.. opening the shell.

You dont pic the shell off, you eat it straight out of the shell. Normally the egg isnt fully hard boiled though some still eat them this way at any level of cook.

Its amazing you STILL think you're right here 🤦‍♂️

You need to learn what the word “open” means apparently. When you got that, you can proceed to the word “hole” and as a bonus check the video for all the soft boiled and even rare eggs that they use it on.

The tool breaks the shell. Period. It’s up to you to remove the top and thereby create a “hole”. You can even see in the first few seconds of the video how that is done. Cognitive dissonance much?

I think YOU need to relearn what "open" means. And why are you trying to reverse course from "it just cracks it for easy peeling" and doubling down so hard on being wrong wrong?

And that's where you are wrong. As I have one of those, I can guarantee you, it doesn`t open the egg. The crack is not completely going through, and even if, you'd still have to open the egg. It does not form an opening. It creates a predetermined breaking line. Therefore its not an egg opener. How can I describe it... it is a >!causer for predetermined breaking lines in egg shells!< ... yup.

It's meant for cracking egg shells. There is no restriction that it must only ever be used for soft-boiled eggs, never for hard-boiled (the manufacturer of the "Clack" says it's for "boiled eggs", and has a photo that appears to be hard-boiled) or raw eggs (as shown in the photo you linked). The idea that this is "wrong" use by people is just your wrong opinion.
