I've learned the hard way that whipping egg whites is a tricky business. There can't be a speck of yellow in them or they won't whip up. An egg separator is a gadget that does just that, it separates out the egg whites from the egg yolks.

Never make a mess of separating eggs again. This cheap and handy kitchen tool is perfect for baking
