How hard isn't to crack an egg, and I always crack mine in a separate bowl so if a shell gets in it easy to take out.

Boy i tell what will they think of next

I do the same thing, but not so much because of the shells. I do it in case the egg has gone bad. That way I just dump the egg bowl instead of ruining the other ingredients.
