How Do You Separate Egg Whites Without an Egg Separator?
Instead of using a specialized tool, you can simply drop the unshelled egg into your hand and let the whites run through your fingers. For a less messy approach, pass the egg yolk back and forth between two halves of the shell, letting the egg white spill out as you go.
Egg separators are specialized tools that are used to separate egg whites from egg yolks. They are a single-use tool that are unable to be used for other processes in the kitchen. Using hands-on methods for separating egg whites are just as effective and will help you quickly move to the next step in your recipe.
