Hi

Could you please tell me which one of these is better?

Crack the egg onto the pan.

Crack the egg into the pan.

Thanks,

'onto' says the egg was struck against the edge of the pan in order to crack it.

'into' says only where the egg ended up, namely, in the pan. It may have been cracked somewhere other than on the edge of the pan.

Mr. TomCrack the egg into the pan.

This one. Things go into pans. You might crack an egg onto a griddle. A griddle doesn't have sides.
