4. Floss regularly. Use dental floss to cut soft breads, doughs, and cheese – it allows you to cut without flattening your food.

5. Bake an egg. Do ‘hard-boiled’ the Alton Brown way! Bake in the oven at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. Baking reduces the sulphor smell and the final result is creamier eggs.
