Pros:Easy to use, separates egg whites and yolks efficiently

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: The Amco Stainless Steel Egg Separator is a handy tool for separating egg whites from egg yolks.


What is egg separating, and why would anyone want to do it? Well, the humble egg that is used so much in our everyday cooking has a split personality. On the one hand, the egg white is loaded with healthy protein, and can be used minus the yolk to create fluffy dishes, like meringues. On the other hand, the yolk is loaded with unhealthy fat and cholesterol, and by itself can be used in making mayonnaise and rich pastries and desserts. Many people love eggs and eat both the white and the yolk, with little care or thought for the health considerations. Some folks, like me, are acutely aware of the bad part of the egg, and limit their dietary intake to the white only, for the great protein and nutritional value. I rarely separate eggs for gourmet cooking, because I'm basically a grill man, but when I want to have a nice breakfast of fried egg whites, I pull out the Amco Stainless Steel Egg Separator and divide the egg into its Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde components, keeping the whites and discarding the yolks.

The Amco Stainless Steel Egg Separator is an odd looking contraption--it's made of stainless steel and has a long handle with a basket on the end of the handle. The idea is to crack the egg and dump it into the basket, allowing the white to leak through into a bowl, while the yolk remains in the basket. I'm not a juggler and I haven't perfected the art of cracking an egg with one hand, so the the Amco Stainless Steel Egg Separator has a little hook on the basket end of the utensil that allows you to secure the basket to the lip of the bowl while laying the handle on the other end. This lets you use both hands to crack the egg and secures the egg separator while you're performing the task of separating the white from the yolk. The handle has a hole in it that allows you to hang the utensil from a board if storing it in a drawer is not an option.

There are other ways to separate eggs--one way is to crack the egg in half and pour the contents back and forth into each half while the white drips off into a bowl. I've tried this and have often nicked the yolk with the sharp edge of the shell, wasting the egg and defeating my goal in the process. Another way is to use your hands--I've seen chefs on the Food Network break eggs into their hands and let the white leak through their fingers into a container, but I wouldn't recommend this method. Eggs should be handled carefully because of the threat of salmonella, so using the hands creates an unnecessary health risk, and it can be messy to boot.

The Amco Stainless Steel Egg Separator offers a fool-proof, safe way to separate the white from the yolk of an egg. If you're a health-conscious person who is aware of the benefits of the whites and the potential dangers of the yolks and use only the whites, $4.00 is a pretty cheap price to pay to be able to separate your eggs safely and efficiently.

Thanks for reading.
