Tips on Cracking an Egg

My son who just turned 12, has always been able to crack an egg with 1 hand. From the first time he picked up an egg about 3 years ago to crack it, he did it with one hand.
Anyway, I try to get my kids in the kitchen from time to time to teach them the basics. I myself and my son have always cracked the egg on the side of the bowl. It seemed to always work for me. I recently read about a sure proof way to crack an egg. It said to crack the egg on the counter, to ensure a clean crack around the egg every time. The first couple times I tried it, I must admit I wasn't completely sold. But as time has gone on, I have found that just about every egg does crack perfectly. And believe me, I crack a lot of eggs. So I am passing this along for all of you to try. But you must give it a few tries and really compare it to the cracks you get on the side of the bowl. My son now also cracks on the counter...two eggs...one in each hand!
