Thanks to the miracle of physics, breakfast just got better — or at least easier. The Pluck yolk extractor ($13 at Story, 144 Tenth Ave., at 19th St.; 212-242-4853), invented by Mark Fusco for local product-development company Quirky, offers an alternative to expensive sieves and drippy shell-to-shell egg-separating routines. Whether you’re prepping a dense carbonara or a resolution-friendly frittata bianca, just crack an egg into a bowl, hover the Pluck’s clear plastic tip over the yolk, squeeze the silicone bulb, release, and — voilà — the gadget seamlessly sucks up the yolk from the white. Squeeze again and it ejects it fully intact — no runny yolk or bits of shell to spoil that egg-white scramble. Plus, glass tumblers, gadget cases, and more new stuff in this week's issue. [NYM]
