Which way up should you store eggs?

Blunt end up, pointed end down. Because the blunt end of an egg has an air pocket between the inner and outer shell membranes, which gradually enlarges as the egg loses moisture during storage. Keeping the air pocket at the top helps to keep the yolk centred within the egg and prevents the air pocket from rupturing, which reduces the risk of the egg spoiling.
